GSN was asked to try out a Skinbreeze facial, a new treatment that claims to give the best results for your skin

Looking into a mirror is not the easiest thing in the world for me.

I spent years battling acne and scarring. Each morning as I looked at my face it was as if an army wearing red and white helmets had spent the night waging war.

So now I’m older, when I was told about a new facial, I was hopeful. After all, if anything can help - go for it. 

I was told the treatment, which combines orbital microdermabrasion with LED Light Therapy and an O2 infusion to deliver the results, would help.

So many men, so little idea of how to use makeup properly. Drew-Ashlyn comes to the rescue with her top tips

I sometimes suspect pretty much all men wear makeup but don’t admit it. Men and makeup are as normal a combination nowadays as men and beer.

Every celebrity, actor or sports hero that guys look up to wears makeup, at least some of the time. And when they’re modeling or appearing on TV or in film, they always do. Cameras pick up every flaw and blemish so without compensating for it, men wouldn’t look flawless, or even as if they had amazing skin. They would look like aliens.
