Strawberries have an invigorating effect, while chamomile is soothing and calming. This is a once-a-week treatment that is also great for de-stressing. Take special care to check that the steam is not too hot – it works even if you need to allow it to cool for a little longer. 4 strawberries 2 chamomile tea bags Make two separate cups of chamomile tea and leave to infuse for 5 minutes. Mash the strawberries in a mixing bowl, then pour in the chamomile tea. Boil the kettle and pour boiling water over the mixture to the halffull level of the bowl. Stand for 3 minutes, then cleanse skin as usual and tie back your hair.Lean over the bowl – with your face at least 20 cm away from the water level – and cover your head completely with a towel to hold in the steam. Keep your eyes and mouth closed and breathe in the wonderful fragrance as the steam works on the skin. After 5 minutes, remove the towel and splash your face with cool water to refresh and help close the pores.

A stickler for perfection, the book’s original illustrator, John Tenniel, insisted the first edition of two thousand copies be pulped because his exquisite designs were imperfectly reproduced.Opposite: ‘“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.” “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice. “You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”’ Alice meets the grinning Cheshire Cat in an illustration after Tenniel.Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was a mathematics don at Christ Church College in Oxford, and he famously wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for a colleague’s three little girls: Ina, Alice and Edith Liddell, whom he used to take on outings on summer days to the river.

A novelist friend of Dodgson, Henry Kingsley (brother of Charles, author of The Water-Babies, 1863, page 80), read the story and was of the opinion that Alice should be given to the world at large, urging Dodgson to have it published. The unworldly Dodgson first thought of Oxford University Press, but the house rejected the manuscript as not suitable for their learned list, and further it was intimated that it would do him no good academically to publish such a work under his own name. Eventually Dodgson was persuaded to submit the work to Macmillan and Co., Kingsley’s publisher, with illustrations by John Tenniel. Dodgson came up with a pen name that suited him and his witty tale, ‘Lewis Carroll’. It was a pun, inevitably – and one that his co
