Whether you need to look wonderful for a big event or you just want a pick me up, then this gentle assault on all fronts can be just the answer.
What you'll need: 
Water, herbal teas
Natural foods
Tooth brush, floss, nail file, hand cream, pumice stone
Moisturiser
Tweezers
Nail varnish
Face mask
Wax strips
1: 
Make water your new best friend, it will flush out the toxins, improve your skin and make you feel more alert. Swap tea and coffee for herbal teas. Avoid alcohol; just the odd glass of wine at the weekend if you must.
2: 
For this month, only eat natural foods: vegetables, fruit, whole grain bread, cereals and pasta, pulses, low fat meat, fish, natural yoghurt, skimmed milk and cottage cheese. Flavour with herbs and stick to olive oil. Eat four small meals a day, making sure that you always eat breakfast.
3: 
Start a new beauty routine with focus on eyes, teeth, hands and feet. Pluck your eyebrows or have them done professionaly at a salon; have your eyelashes dyed too. Buy a new tooth brush and brush your teeth and tongue three times a day and make sure that you floss. Trim and file nails to be short and neat (they will grow over the four weeks) and apply handcream every day. Give feet a full pedicure, remove dead skin and moisturise. Do this every week. Give yourself a weekly face mask. Moisturise morning and evening. Apply polish to nails. Wax legs and bikini line if it suits, cut strips into small pieces for best results.
4: 
Start exercising - do twenty minutes walking every day and then spend thirty minutes three times a week doing the exercise of your choice: swimming, fitness videos, trampolining, cycling - only pick something that you enjoy.
5: 
Try and be in bed by 10pm. Sleep is vital to making you feel and look better. Make sure heating is off and leave a window open. Taking make up off before you go to bed is essential.
6: 
Giv your wardrobe a make over,go though your clothes and put co-ordinated outfits together. Put small nails inside the wardrobe door and hang up necklaces to help you choose matching accessories. Throw out shabby and tired clothes and underwear
7: 
And finally if you can afford it have your hair cut and if appropriate coloured.
