Students at Leicester University are facing up to the strain and stresses of exams with a facial.
Business is blooming for beauty therapist Razina Suida, who has set up business in the university's fitness club. Undergraduates of both sexes are flocking to the salon to get anything from an Indian head massage to detox body treatments.
Ms Suida said: "They feel able to tackle anything from the second law of thermodynamics to perspectives in Renaissance art after a head massage.
"The days of students surviving on a pair of jeans throughout their studies are long gone. They're much more concerned about their lifestyle."
