I read India Knight's Sunday Times Style column with interest and, secretly, have a conversation with her every time she publishes a piece on facial skincare. The Strike Oil article on 1st January caught my eye.  Introducing the world of facials that can make an actual, immediate and noticeable difference to your appearance and improve your complexion overtime to the general public is a great message. Only one in four women in Britain has a regular facial, and usually not by a highly trained facialist. Also highlighting the expertise of London-based celebrity facialists, with magic hands and a range of tools from massage, peels to resurfacing and stimulating devices is fabulous. As India notes, super-facialists aren't cheap and have waiting lists. But not every super-facialist lives in London, there are a handfull living outside of the capital who also bring "power facials" and "face gym" hands-on skills and expertise; East Yorkshire, in my case.  Glowing, healthy skin requires more than a monthly facial, it is an at-home routine. Super-facialists have their own range of products that you can buy to use at home; they may not be cheap, but they work. India has faith in their expertise and likes the pared-down simplicity of Amanda Lacey's range.

And when you clench your jaw or grind your teeth, you trigger your sympathetic nervous system, your fight-or-flight response.” Which can, if it becomes a default state, cause a wide range of health issues. Until now, says Lynn Rae, “it has been hard to find the right person to help when you are struggling with jaw tension”. “The muscles inside the mouth… you have to be very gentle… you are kind of listening with your fingers, having a conversation. The more gentle you are the more effect you can have. If you press too hard you can create tension. If you feel and wait and move a little bit, it kind of happens.” Lynn also gives her clients techniques to build upon her work in their daily life. “I teach improved posture and alignment. The tongue should sit on the roof of the mouth, for example, which relaxes the neck muscles, allows the face to lift, and improves posture.” *** Lynn trained as a sports remedial massage therapist, and as an instructor in both Pilates and
