Four fab face-savers

Posted in HEALTH + WELLBEING By Maggie O' Sullivan

SHA Wellness Clinic, Spain/Health & Fitness TravelAccording to Health & Fitness Travel, our faces reveal a lot about our diets. Too much dairy, for example, can lead to puffy eyelids, under-eye bags and dark circles. What we eat, they say, can also impact on the aging process. So it could be worth looking in the mirror before you book your next wellness holiday. Here, Health & Fitness Travel match four luxury health retreats to four different ‘faces’.
