When I was born, my parents offered me to our childless neighbours (accepted practice in rural Taiwan fifty years ago). They rejected me saying "I was too dark, skinny and ugly!" Straight talkers us Chinese. It's ironic then that my whole professional life has been devoted to expressions of beauty.

There's nothing quite like the sweltering heat and blistering sunlight to bring out the worst in sensitive skin. I should know, I'm faired skinned and prone to breakouts, and while most people seem to be blessed with a healthy glow right about now, I, on the other hand, was (until recently) dried-out and blotchy, and I swear I had more wrinkles.

Over exposure to the sun is the skin's number one enemy. Unless steps are taken to shield our skin from its glare, it quickly becomes wrinkly and slack.

If there's one thing we learned from the recent horse meat scandal, it's that we don't really know what's in the products we buy every day.
