Don’t skimp on the sunscreen just because it’s autumn

This week I try … a glow facial

The lowdown I am in Melbourne at the swish Liberty Belle Skin Centre (owned by plastic surgeon Dr Chris Moss and his wife Andrea Moss, a former Real Housewife of Melbourne). I am trying their signature treatment, the Glow Facial. The procedure starts with Dermasweep, a gentle form of microdermabrasion, followed by some necessary blocked pore extractions. Next is the collagen-stimulating Laser Genesis, a non-invasive, pain-free laser treatment which targets redness, wrinkles and open pores, then a customised peel.

Pain factor Zero, except for the extractions. I, of course, fell asleep.

Downtime One hour. You can return to normal activities or go back to work immediately.

Ask Stephanie

Is it true that chewing celery is good for teeth?

Yes. Chewing celery helps your mouth produce more saliva, which in turn helps prevent plaque acids and bacteria building up on your teeth. Additionally, as you chew it, the fibre in celery helps to clean teeth while gently massaging gums.
