People talk about makeovers but few actually go through the process, especially one as rigorous as local marketing executive Sunna Hong is enduring. The Hong Kong-based Korean single mother embarked on a 'beauty boot camp' for a new website called Redlife-Asia.com, which plans to make her look '10 years younger in two weeks'.

The 14-day basic training includes going to a Kim Robinson stylist for hair, a colour stylist, a makeup artist, Botox dermatology treatments and workouts.

'I just turned 37,' says Hong, who describes herself as a typical exhausted executive. 'So I told myself that before I turn 40 I should really maximise my youth - the little bit that is left of me.

'But I am very lazy about working out and very generous to myself when it comes to eating. It has been very difficult to get myself started on a proper exercise/diet.'

Hong is in the middle of the programme, which started last Wednesday. She's obviously happy to get the sponsored makeover and the motivation, but she is realistic.

'So do I believe within two weeks I will look 10 years younger? Probably no, but at least I will get professional help on how to eat, dress, do hair, take care of my skin and exercise. I will consider myself lucky and already successful if I go through all six sessions of training and somehow keep this up for a few months.'

You can see Hong's results when www.redlife-asia.com launches on December 21.
