Quick Path to Detox
Prefer to take a more horizontal approach to detoxing? Elemis Day Spa is currently offering an all-over detox program that promises to banish your festive bloat in just a few sessions. For $6,500 (regular value $8,910), you’ll get a full detox program, including four M6 Endermologie treatments to wipe out the appearance of cellulite; an Elemis pro-collagen marine facial, a ginger and lime salt scrub; a cellutox aroma spa ocean wrap and the Elemis body sculpting cellulite and colon therapy treatment (yuck). What’s more, you’ll also receive a “Total Detox Regime” kit worth $1,080 to take home for future after-party usage.

While the Hong Kong populous hunkers down beneath their panic-purchased down jackets, those for whom the real world is more or less irrelevant, i.e. fashion and beauty industry insiders, are already turning their immaculately sculpted faces towards spring/summer makeup trends. At Guerlain, the focus is on youth and vivid colors, with fuschia lips and healthily glowing cheeks. Try the Rouge G color compact ($480), which comes in four shades to suit every season and skin tone. At Anna Sui, it’s all about translucent, glossy lips with the new Lip Gloss Clear range ($190). Get a pinky shade for a subtle shimmer. My personal beauty tip for the coming months? Invest in a good in-shower body moisturizer, as it’s far too cold to slather lotion on after you get out (I love Crabtree & Evelyn’s olive, avocado and basil version, $275). Oh, and don’t bother shaving your legs until May.

One of my New Year’s resolutions has been (with crushing inevitability) to eat less crap and do more exercise. Sadly, I think the benefits of my lunchtime exercise class have been squarely cancelled out by the condensed milk bun I had for lunch-dessert. Well, you can’t win ’em all. If you’re a little more dedicated in your quest to fight the fat, then you might want to consider Pure’s New Year’s promotion. $2,000 gets you their “Inspiration Pack,” which includes a month-long free pass to all Pure outlets in Hong Kong, three private personal training or yoga sessions, vouchers for their dining and retail outlets, passes for your friends and $2,000 waived from your contract if you choose to sign up. That’s a whole lot of enticement right there. The deal is only valid until Feb 28, so best get down there quick. Log onto www.pure-international.com for more details.
