My First Laser Treatment

Glynis Barber Beauty, Treatments 3 Comments

I’m a bit of a baby when it comes to skin treatments. I like organic natural products, gentle treatments and I don’t like pain. And I especially don’t like downtime. I mean who has time for downtime? Downtime makes me nervous. What if the swelling, redness or bruising is really bad and takes weeks to go back to normal? What if …

Roses for your Skin

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 0 Comments

Earlier in the year the fabulous folk at Green People celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing out a special collection of products. A little set of cleanser, moisturiser and hand cream in either orange blossom or damask rose. I loved them both but have a special love of roses so was instantly enamoured with the damask rose collection. The collection …

The Serum Report

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 5 Comments

I have tried a LOT of serums this year. Dozens in fact. I was sent a huge boxful to try out when I was a judge at the Natural Health International Beauty Awards earlier in the year. And it was a hard choice to make because there were lots of good ones. However I still have them all and am …

Summer Hair

Glynis Barber Beauty, Hair 1 Comment

I just love natural, messy, beachy hair. And it’s a great look for the summer ( although if I’m honest it’s really my all year look ). I think if you have hair at least down to the tops of your shoulders, this is the way to go. I always think the less done hair looks, the more youthful it …

Collagen Wave

Glynis Barber Beauty, Treatments 9 Comments

Radio frequency skin treatments are one of my favourites as they effectively tighten skin, improve collagen production and have no downtime with zero pain factor. The only downside is the cost. While it may be too expensive to indulge in a course every year, I do think even occasional one off treatments are well worth it. I’ve tried a few …

The New Natural Beauty

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 1 Comment

The natural and organic beauty product industry has become huge so there’s obviously a growing market for it. But how do we know what’s really natural and what isn’t? A lot of natural ingredients on labels sound like chemicals and vice versa. Are companies being entirely honest about what they’re producing? Well these are the very questions pondered by Grace …

International Natural Health Beauty Winners

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 0 Comments

I was thrilled and  honoured to be a judge at the International Natural Health & Beauty Awards which took place last week. I was given the task of trying out serums which I was very happy about as I love a serum. And oh boy, did they give me a lot to try out! A few months ago a huge …

My Favourite New Beauty Finds

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 2 Comments

I’m always trying out new products for Ageless and many of them fall by the wayside gathering dust if I’m not enthused about them. However in the last few weeks I’ve found some new ones that I absolutely love and have become firm favourites. So of course I have to share these with you. First of all I’m really loving …

The Best Moisturisers with an SPF

Glynis Barber Skincare 7 Comments

Every dermatologist I’ve ever spoken to is adamant that we should all be wearing an SPF all year round. I did this for many years but in recent years I must confess I’ve let it slide. I mean I live in England for heavens’ sake. The winter is long and the skies are too often grey. And what about this …

How to get a Mid-Winter Glow

Glynis Barber Health, Skincare 4 Comments

I have to confess that I find January to March the toughest time of the year. The winter is a long gloomy one here in the UK and it’s really hard to stay upbeat, energetic and glowing with health. It’s very tempting to stay home in baggy pants and eat comfort food. And yes, I’m just like everyone else when …
