Does A Pore Vacuum Actually Work?

Can you really clear your pores and get rid of blackheads by using a vacuum designed for your face? Bettina did the hard work for you and put one to the test, and her review may surprise you.

Also in this episode, we cover what texturising sprays are and how you should be using them, and we picked the brain (no pun intended) of neuroscientist and skin expert Dr Claudia Aguirre to find out how our minds and our skin are connected.
