If you spend your lunch break Googling cat memes or grabbing a soggy sarnie then you need to read this. Those precious 60 minutes could be much better spent by learning a new skill, pampering yourself, or just catching up on things you’ve been meaning to do for months…
Take some pamper time
Get your glow back by enjoying a relaxing body massage at Neal’s Yard Remedies (£30 for 30 minutes), or a complimentary Hand & Arm Massage at Jo Malone or Molton Brown. It takes less than an hour and will make you feel serene and calm, so you can float through the afternoon worry-free.
Protect your peepers
Your eye health is so important, but sometimes your poor, overworked peepers can get forgotten about. Why not put your lunch hour to good use by taking an eye test at Cutler & Gross (£45), or Ollie Quinn (£20) Your eyes will thank you for it.
Get some fashion advice
Fancy a new look? Or keen to find the perfect pressie for someone you love? Stores such as Reiss and Harvey Nichols offer a Personal Styling service to share their expertise on fashion, gift buying and more.
Make things personal
If you’ve always fancied owning a personalised handbag or purse, or want a truly unique gift for a birthday or special occasion, head to Aspinal of London or Coach and make the most of the embossing service they both offer.
Get to know your skin
Knowing your skin type and its specific needs can help you dramatically improve its appearance, so why not use your lunch hour for a complimentary consultation at Liz Earle or Kiehl’s? Both brands will diagnose your skin type free of charge, so you can learn about its needs and find the perfect skincare routine.
