On the programme Dr Rozina Ali leaves the operating theatre behind for the frontiers of skin science and asks if it is possible to make your skin look younger without surgery.

She discovers the latest research about how the foods we eat can protect our skin from damage, and how a chemical found in a squid’s eye is at the forefront of a new sun protection cream.

She also finds out how sugar in our blood can make us look older, and explores an exciting new science called glycobiology which promises a breakthrough in making us look younger.

Miss Ali said: “I found the experience a real eye-opener. Science is objective and indisputable, whatever purposes it is used for - academia, commerce or therapy. I was impressed by the quality of the work being carried out and the diligence and enthusiasm of the researchers I met.

“I was quite amazed at just how hard one has to work, not just to research good science but to make it fun and easily understandable to the public. It takes an awful lot of effort to make things look effortless and attractive. That’s as true of TV as it is of surgery.”

The programme airs at 9pm on Monday, July 23.
