According to a survey, 79% of people said they would welcome measures to curb alcohol intake on flights while 11% said they would be happy with a total ban. But banning alcohol on a flight isn't the solution because the problem is in fact much, much bigger than our inability to say no to free drinks on a plane.

I am a dermatologist. I suffer with acne. I have often thought about writing about my experiences and then promptly talked myself out of it. And when I've tried to psychoanalyse why, it is because at times, I still feel resounding shame and embarrassment of my skin.

In the 80s and 90s, Madonna established herself as an unapologetically strong, female role model.
