If anyone’s body and looks need a kickstart after the festive season then it’s those of our editor Tony Mallett. Here, he talks to the owner of a brilliant detox centre in sunny Biarritz
So, the annual excesses of Christmas and New Year have been left behind – or have they? The pounding even the most restrained of us give our bodies over the festive period, allied with the extra stress, and often followed by the January ‘blues’, will all show on the outside. As for the least restrained of us, such as this writer, well the mirror has a cover over it till March. Whether we mean to or not, during December many of us get toxed-up to the max and head back to our jobs and daily routine in January thinking: ‘Well, maybe a sauna and a new haircut will perk me up’. They might well do that but, let’s face it, they’re rarely enough. Hit-and-miss resolutions aside, the early part of the year is the perfect time to cleanse the body and a full detox in expert hands and gorgeous, uplifting surroundings will drastically alter the way you look and feel for the better in just a few days.
