Muddy says: Highly experienced Thame-based skincare therapist April Russell really knows her beauty onions. She also has all the latest kit and machines. Glow guaranteed!

Now based in the centre of Thame, April has previously worked at Harrods Urban Retreat spa, The Grove in Watford and various whizzy locations in New York, the Caribbean and the Middle East. She offers no-nonsense, high-tech facials, using her top-of-the range Hydrafacial and Dermalux LED phototherapy machines. They may look like mini-space stations but they sure do deliver. The former treatment is a celebrity favourite known as the red carpet facial, as you emerge gleaming and scrubbed, ready to face your adoring fans without a blotch or red patch in sight. It’s also worth picking April’s brains for beauty tips – what she doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing.
