THE SO­LU­TION

Pop a daily mul­ti­vi­ta­min. Dr Drae­los says to look for one that in­cludes se­le­nium, cop­per, iron and zinc. The re­quired amount of each de­pends on your age and sex, so clear the break­down with your doc­tor first.

“Fa­cial mas­sage is a great way to stim­u­late blood flow, which will add ra­di­ance and plump the skin.” – Dr Mona Go­hara
