The diet that has nothing to do with food & the danger of denial

My article for Her Campus this week is all about a new diet that has nothing to do with food but everything to do with the way we wear makeup. I talk you through the benefits of the new 5:2 proposal for our faces.
However, it's so much bigger than that. With weekly crazes, the way we're 'told' to live our lives is becoming increasingly more dictatorial. It's meant to help us, yes...but why not help ourselves in our own way?
