The disturbing truth about ‘miracle’ beauty treatments: One of Britain’s top beauty editors reveals the agony of 20 years of bruised knees, black eyes and burnt skin
Back in February, I sported violent red under-eye circles the shape and size of bunting. It was the unfortunate outcome of an eye and lip peel, the third in succession over two months after the first two went off with barely a hitch.
Applied by a specialist I know and trust, no faults were made, but my eyes still blew up like 99 red balloons and, basically, burnt.
There was shock but, apart from guesses at a rare allergic reaction, no real explanation.
