Grilled halloumi and vegetable wrap

 

There was hardly anything in the fridge so I completely surprised myself by clobbering together this grilled vegetable and halloumi wrap.

The mask instantly appealed to me because I always prefer non-pharmaceutical interventions if possible.

How light therapy works

Distributed across the back of the mask are red and blue lights. The idea is that these work together to treat acne by targeting and killing the Proprionibacterium Acnes bacteria which can cause acne.

Blue light can kill the bacteria, and red light can penetrate the skin more deeply, and help shrink the oil-producing glands.
