About Alice Hart-Davis

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. She has reported on non-surgical cosmetic procedures – ‘tweakments’ and skincare for 25 years and has tried countless procedures and products in order to review them. Aside from all the jokes about how someone has to do this tough job, doing this has helped her to understand, at first hand as well as in theory, what really works when it comes to products and tweakments. To keep up with developments in both fields she attends conferences around the world and spends much of her time catching up with the practitioners, dermatologists, scientists and brands behind these fast-expanding technologies and the latest products.

In the course of her research, Alice has come to appreciate that any treatment is only as good as the skill of the practitioner who’s delivering it. She has had many impressive and successful treatments but has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetic medical industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia both among patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.
