We all know that as we age the appearance of our skin changes, but what exactly causes that and is there anything we can do to slow down the process or even reverse some of the damage? Here Shabir Daya, pharmacist at Victoria Health, explains the process and shows us that yes indeed, there are things we can do. Hoorah! …

Jet Peel

  About 18 months ago something strange happened to my usually normal and well behaved skin. It got very, very dry and started flaking alarmingly. I was doing a play at the time and therefore had on a full face of make up every night. Every time I removed the makeup, my skin would come off with it. It was …

DNA Anti-Ageing Test

Glynis BarberSkincare Leave a Comment

This is the world’s first in-store DNA test and is right up my street. I love a bit of science and also the the idea of finding out if my DNA is helping or hindering with the ageing process. So when the the Organic Pharmacy invited me to go along and try it out, I jumped at the chance. Would …

Glynis BarberBeauty Leave a Comment

When I met Margo and Franco Marrone from the Organic Pharmacy the other week, they were launching their new Rose Balm. I have since fallen in love with this little pot of heaven. I have become addicted to the glorious smell (rose infused with argan, calendula, rose hip and more) and have no idea what people must think of me …

Organic skincare

So, in the far mists of time (November 2012 when I launched this site), you may remember me banging on about natural unprocessed food? Well, after my conversion to organic eating in the 80’s (a lonely path foraging for the small amount that was available), it was inevitable that one day it would occur to me that perhaps I should …

Non Invasive Skin Tightening

Glynis BarberTreatments Leave a Comment

I should imagine that most mature(ish) women, and frankly even immature ones, crave tight, sag-free, dewy, glowing skin, free from wrinkles and age spots. I would also imagine that most of these mature/immature women are rather less keen on actually going under the knife to achieve it. We live in an age where much of this is achievable. Hoorah!!!! At …
