Last week I met the amazing Dr Murad (of Murad skincare products) at his offices in El Segundo, California. He was truly inspirational in his approach to skincare, talking to me about how eating habits and stress play the most important part when it comes to our skin. For a man with a large (and very popular) range of skincare products to his name, he barely spoke about topical treatments – we talked at length about environmental stresses, about the way that adults rarely have time for proper relaxation these days and about the importance of a good diet. The Doctor spoke sense!
Anyway, predictably, I was fashionably late. Bloody L.A. traffic! So I didn’t get to ask Dr Murad all of the questions that I wanted to. Kindly though (and he rarely does this, so I feel honoured!) he has agreed to answer ten reader questions about skin and skincare. Perhaps you have a skin complaint that you can’t seem to shift, or you’re struggling to know which products are right for your skin. Maybe you’re skin has suddenly gone haywire and you don’t know what to do – or it could be that you’re undergoing some kind of hormonal change and you’re at a loss to know how to handle your skin. If you have a question then now is the time to ask it! You have a world-class skin doctor at your disposal, so ask away!
Obviously I can only choose ten questions, so what I’m going to do is pick the most frequently asked and those that will be helpful to the biggest number of people. I think that this is the fairest way of deciding! I’ll try and word the questions so that Dr Murad’s answers are relevant to lots of you rather than just one person, so please don’t be offended if I choose your question but jumble the words a little – this is an incredible opportunity and I want to make the most of it!
I’m sending Dr Murad the questions next week, so please leave a comment below with your question as soon as you can and I’ll get sorting. I’ll be posting the questions and answers one-by-one over the course of the next few weeks as I have a feeling that the posts will be pretty lengthy! I also have an excellent video of Dr Murad talking about the effects of stress and diet on the skin – it’s really, really interesting so I’ll get that published for you too.
This weekend I’m getting started on Dr Murad’s book, The Water Secret. I’ll let you know how it is! It’s here on Amazon- The Water Secret: The Cellular Breakthrough to Look and Feel 10 Years Younger
