'I’m 34 but I look 25': TV presenter's bizarre age cure

SHE may be one of the few women who can say "I look 25" confidently, now 34-year-old Aussie TV presenter Sommer Shiels credits her youthful looks to some bizarre remedies.

The Bondi blonde beauty has been headhunted by Brand New Beauty for its new show Journey For Youth, which will be shot in the US next month.

In the series, Shiels will travel to various countries to try age-defying traditions including rubbing snail secretions onto her skin in Korea.


But these weird and wacky skincare regimes aren't new to Shiels.

Shiels, who revealed she hasn't had any invasive cosmetic surgery, says she is a fan of vampire facials, which involves plasma needling.

Spoons of a person's blood is extracted from their arm and the plasma is spun out of the blood and then rubbed back into a patient's face.

If that makes your stomach churn, Shiels also consumes fish placenta everyday and she swears by the odd procedure.

"I'm up for anything when it comes to looking good and feeling younger - I'll try anything," she told Confidential today.

"I'm 34 but I look 25.

"I take a lot of collegian supplements including marine placenta, which is derived from organic wild salmon. I take it everyday. It's improved my skin's elasticity."

Shiels said she lived a secluded lifestyle and that she was still single.

"I'm a seven-day a week working girl and I'm happily single," she said.

"I'm not into Botox because I need facial expressions for my profession.

"There's so much people can do than cosmetic surgery. There's supplements, skin peels and also stem cell treatment."

Shiels owns a lucrative skincare range and hopes to open up three stem cell clinics around the world including one in Sydney.
