Parental Control, Ep 29: Help! I’m Getting Wrinkles! An Intro To Retinoids, Botox And Fillers With Expert Anna Baker

I have to admit I was a bit nervous speaking to award-winning aesthetic nurse Anna Baker today. I am 39 and I have got lots of little lines cropping up on my forehead but I am resisting temptation. I quizzed Anna on a whole host of areas, and the podcast includes in-depth expert skincare advice on everything from botox, to retinoids, and the latest fillers on the market.

Expert skincare advice

The podcast was filmed on Zoom and the first thing I noticed was how incredible and glowing Anna’s skin was. I, however, had been caught out on a rare, sunny April morning and was bright red and more wrinkled than normal. We had a great time talking about everything from the perfect skin regime to sensitive skin, exfoliation and SPF. We went on to talk about retinol, Profilo, Botox and fillers and ended with her desert island products.  I hope you enjoy our chat as much as I did.
