If you’ve recently returned to the office, you might be finding yourself short on ‘me time’ right now.
We’ve all been there… trying to keep the steadiest hand in the world while we hurriedly apply mascara on the tube, or frantically styling our hair under the hand dryer at work because we ran out of time in the morning. Commuting has a lot to answer for!
That’s why we’re here to help with our top pick of lunchtime beauty treatments. From a quick trim to a beauty tutorial, all these treatments are an hour or less so you can fit in a cheeky pamper in the middle of your day…
If you’re looking for the ultimate pampering experience, make an appointment with a beauty therapist at MALIKA. Open Mon to Fri 10.30am - 6pm, MALIKA is one of London’s best threading companies, but they also offer a range of top beauty services including eyelash extensions, manicures and facials.
Their menu of treatments has been designed to purify, soothe and relieve any stress and tension you may be feeling – ideal for busy commuters! Check out its full range of treatments here.

Pure Sports Medicine
Going back to the office means that we’re back up and moving around more than we did during lockdown – even if you were regularly exercising, daily movement can use muscles that are missed during workouts. So, if you’re experiencing pain or discomfort, aiming for a new PB, or looking to improve your health, the team at Pure Sports Medicine can help.
There are early morning, lunchtime and evening appointments available, so stop by to see how they can get you back to your best. See their full list of treatments and services here.
