She certainly doesn’t look her age, and now Lisa Snowdon has revealed one of her secrets to staying youthful.

The former model has admitted she likes to undergo acupuncture, and shocked fans yesterday when she shared a series of snaps on Instagram.

In one of the photos, 46-year-old Lisa posed in just a bra with her hands covering her modesty and 200 acupuncture needles in her face.

She captioned the pics: “I so needed this. I’ve now progressed to 200 needles!! And yes they are everywhere! Don’t be freaked out, this is a much needed MOT for my body mind and soul.

“I’ve been jet-lagged from our trip to the states, which means my sleep has been all over the place.

“I drank my body weight (which is quite a lot these days!) in tequila, vodka and rosè, I’ve had A LOT of fun but it’s all about balance,” she added.

Lisa continued: “As I’ve also mentioned before my hormones have been completely out of whack along with my periods and it’s quite exhausting not to mention confusing.”

Taking to the comments section, many of Lisa’s followers seemed concerned with the amount of needles in her face, with one posting: “Ouch! Looks sore. Very brave.”

Another wrote: “I will totally take your word for it! But have to say my stomach is turning looking at all the needles in your face. Not a great lover of needles.”

However, Lisa put their minds at ease and added: “For those who ask if it hurts, it really doesn’t- I honestly wouldn’t keep going back and paying for a treatment that hurts, it’s actually so relaxing it’s like the body just goes ahhhhhhh when the first needles goes in.

“Sarah also uses LED lights on my tummy to help soothe my digestive and adds the lights to my face once all the needles are in and also does a reflexology treatment with her healing hands. It’s a proper treat for the whole body. Balancing, healing and a good boost for the immune system.”
