Post-Christmas bank balances mean not all of us can afford to visit a spa for a January pick-me-up.

But there are plenty of ways to turn your home into a haven of relaxation and renewal.

Here are some of the best products from Canary Wharf shops to help you face 2017, calm, exfoliated and glowing.
