this week. . .
Q If you only do one thing this week ... take a few minutes and practise your body-brushing skills. Your soon-to-be firmer and smoother legs will thank you for it, because at some stage very soon, they will be released from the tyranny of opaque tights and revealed to the world. Always work upwards towards your heart in long sweeping strokes.
Q If you only buy one thing this week, make it Clarins Eye Revive Beauty Flash, €32.50. This rich cream is just what you need to refresh tired eyes. While I'm not sure that it improved the pesky dark circles that seem to be a permanent feature these days (perhaps the only really effective treatment for those would be a week in the Bahamas), it did reduce puffiness and left the delicate skin in that area feeling well-hydrated.
