GABY Soutar rounds up the latest beauty news and deals across Scotland
Common scents thinking
New to Space NK is Mio Liquid Yoga Space Spray, £19.50. Using the concept of what they call aromachology (the influence of odours on human behaviour), it features their trademarked V-tonic blend of ingredients including essential oils of lemon, cypress, chamomile, mandarin and lavandin. Spritz it on your yoga mat, in the car or office, or directly onto your pulse points.
Lose weight not flavour
Healthy food doesn’t have to be bland or boring, as proved by Spice Yourself Slim by Kalpna Woolf, out on Thursday. This book features 100 recipes that are designed to stimulate the senses but not the waistband. So, there are low calorie options such as lemon coriander chicken with roasted peppers, magic beans, skinny paneer and monkfish chermoula, among many other tempting recipes.
Half day in heaven
Feeling the chill? Then head to Archerfield Spa for their Winter Warmer Half Day Spa Package. For £90pp, it includes two hours’ use of the spa facilities, which feature a sauna with a view out to their cottage garden, a steam room and loads of relaxation spaces. You also get a 60-minute Back, Neck and Shoulder massage and Facial Treatment. Available Sunday to Thursday until the end of January.
