Treatment of the week: Reduce wrinkles with a specially-tailored facial
The shelves are groaning under the weight of ‘doctor’ endorsed skincare brands these days.
But now, in my 30s, I am yet to find something to combat the fine lines brought on by my fast-paced job and a few years of sunbathing.
Enter Dr Nicholas Perricone, a professor of medicine at Michigan State University, who has written many books detailing how diet can affect our skin and has a best-selling skincare range.

I was curious to try out his approach — with a specially-tailored facial.
My therapist asked me what I would like to achieve with the treatment and my answer was healthy-looking radiant skin.
She cleansed my face, toned it and then began the dreaded extractions (squeezing any spots or blocked pores).
Every therapist will make a personal skin prescription for you — mine involved the application of a rubberised glue-like mask, which took 15 minutes to dry, and some intensive line-reducing potions.
Some of them tingled a bit, which I was told was because they contained a high-level of ‘active’ ingredients.
Afterwards, my skin looked more balanced and less blotchy — and lots of my little wrinkles appeared less noticeable.
