Experts give their advice for fighting wrinkles.
Serve tea and cucumber
“When my eyes look puffy or tired, I soak chamomile tea bags in cold water and place them over my eyelids for 10 minutes. It leaves me with pepped-up peepers.
“To temporarily tighten the complexion, I place chilled slices of cucumbers on my eyes and cheeks.”

Try “Oil Pulling”
“To maintain youthful skin I do the Ayurvedic practice of ‘oil pulling’.
“I take a teaspoon of organic sesame oil, swish it in my mouth for a minute each morning and then spit it out. It helps detoxify the body and improve skin.”

Drink green tea
“I drink a cup of green tea daily and keep a punnet of blueberries at my desk to nibble.
“They both provide a powerful dose of protective antioxidants that keep wrinkles at bay.”

Tuck into honey
“I’m a great believer in using natural ingredients. Getting more honey in your diet is great for the face. It’s good at helping the skin absorb moisture.”

Use an ice pack
“To stimulate my skin cells, shrink fluid retention and reduce redness and visible capillaries, I wrap ice in a muslin cloth and roll it all over my face.
“It leaves you with a rosy, youthful complexion.”
