Aurelia Probiotic Skincare has launched its online Skin Tool consultation service to offer bespoke skincare and lifestyle tips in eight steps. Its advice on subjects ranging from stress relief and exercise to product recommendations is worth a read. Give it a try and you’ll get £10 off their range.
Men’s hair and grooming salon The Player’s Lounge in Edinburgh has had its own makeover. The new look involves lots of rustic bare wood – including a reception made of reclaimed church pews – to suit their new eco-friendly ethos. As well as low energy equipment, they will be using sulphate and paraben free-products and donating 15 per cent of their profits in February to Water Aid UK.

It features 50 recipes (not ALL of which are virtuous), including how to make your own nut butter, nutty granola and almond milk.
