Hand Therapy

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare Leave a Comment

How are your hands holding up? What with all the constant hand washing and sanitising, chances are they’re a bit rough and a bit knackered. Many soaps have harsh ingredients that dry hands out and sanitisers in particular can take their toll. Constant hand washing (which I would choose over hand sanitiser whenever possible) is very necessary at the moment …

My skin under the microscope (Part 1) – The reality

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 4 Comments

Way back in February, before lockdown, before the new corona virus turned our lives upside down, I found myself on Harley Street with an hour or so to kill.

Three months since I began my skin rejuvenation with my first Hifu treatment! I know that I need patience as collagen takes time to renew, which is just as well as so far I can see no change whatsoever. Patience has never been my strong point but I’m feeling optimistic about this as have heard such good things about Hifu. …

Time catches up with us all at some stage. Since turning 60 I can definitely see an escalation in the ageing of my skin. This is, of course, only natural but doesn’t mean I have to sit back and just accept it.  There are now so many treatments that are non-surgical, non-invasive or semi-invasive that there is actually quite a …
