Groomed: The Anti-Ageing Health & Beauty Show at the Olympia London

This weekend sees the Olympia Conference Centre host The Anti-Ageing Health and Beauty Show, the UK’s only event that is dedicated to helping men and women to look amazing at any age. The weekend will cover hot topics from the best way to tackle the signs of ageing to practical tips on hair and makeup, all done by hair stylists, beauty experts, exhibitors and celebrity speakers. Last week I received a special invite to go and try out one of the new technologies that will be on show at the event, the VISIA Skin Analysis System. It’s a powerfully advanced technology that provides meaningful skin evaluations, on-screen and printed reports, and tracks treatment progress.


The review consists of putting your head into a rather ominous looking box that then takes several HD photos and a 3D scan. I just had the photos taken for the skin analysis; the 3D scan is great for those who then want to tweak their look on a computer as part of a cosmetic surgery consultation. The results for my scan looked like this:


Now, having had to get up at 6am to make it to this appointment at 8, you can image I wasn’t in the best of moods, and the results didn’t exactly perk me up. Scores above 50 show are good and better than the peer age/physical ages average, scores below 50% are poor and worse than the peer average. I had never realised I how much sun damage I had to my skin! Though I have minimal wrinkles so you win some you lose some, eh?

I promptly bought a bottle of sunscreen on the way home.

It looks set to be an amazing weekend at Olympia and I can’t wait to get down there and investigate. I’m also excited to simply be in the Olympia again for the first time since I was a kid. It’s a stunning Grade II listed building and the new renovations inside, I hear, are rather exciting. Now I just need to find a shorter event hashtag…

The exhibition runs from the 10-11th of May with ticket prices start form £18.
