With any surgery or intrusive procedure, there is always some degree of risk. The real dilemma is that when things go wrong, it is near impossible to rectify. Why take the risk when there are non-intrusive ways to make yourself look years younger? Being a health freak and scared of the scalpel, I had to find other ways to maintain my looks. As I have been an international fashion model for over a decade now and still grace the covers of leading international fashion publications, I think that I have succeeded. So I am going to share with you some of my tips how to look years younger without surgery, as I don't want to risk ending up like Jocelyn Wildenstein below. (And yes it is her before and after cosmetic surgery - believe it or not!)


Let’s start with the fundamentals. Got to keep hydrated so drink a lot of fluids. Health professionals recommend at least 1.5 to 2 litres per day. If you let the skin dry before you apply a moisturiser, the skin will contract and then expand. This will eventually lead to wrinkles. And wrinkles is associated with age. So if you want to avoid wrinkles, always keep your skin moisturised. This leads me to whether you should sunbathe or not. You should in moderation whilst ensuring that you skin never dries out. Sunlight is extremely important for your wellbeing as it stimulates natural production of Omega 3 and Vitamin D. And a healthy and glowing skin complexion does make you look younger.


That’s the basics. Believe it or not, but there are actually ways to take a few years off your look by simply getting a younger hair style. As I have long hair, I get my hair layered in a way that accentuates the younger looking features of my face. One of my favourite hair salons is Hair by Dar in London. Dar is a master at a layering technique that really does make me look younger. Don’t just take my word for it. His skills are appreciated by A-list celebrities like Goldie Hawn, Nicole Scherzinger and Aishwarya Rai just to name a few. Now you know one of the secrets why Goldie Hawn looks forever young.
