Anti-ageing: Younger looking skin can be too smooth

Anti-ageing: Younger looking skin can be too smooth

by Thinking of having a peel or microdermabrasion to give your face an instant (almost) lift? One of our favourite make-up artists, Fiona Jolly, told us recently of a problem she's discovered working on models and celebs who've had a few of the procedures – because skin's so smooth and free from those big old pores the rest of us have to put up with, there's nothing for make-up to cling to so it ends up sitting on skin like a mask. And without make-up, skin looks unnaturally perfect, tight and overly smooth – like an alabaster trampoline. Your skin may look younger – but not always naturally so.
