A hero product for the lip area

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare Leave a Comment

Ageing is not for the fainthearted, that’s for sure. Besides the many health issues that can arise, one has to watch things happening to the face that one didn’t even know could happen. I thought the saggy jowls would be the worst of it, but no, there’s even worse. And that’s the lines that suddenly appear above the mouth. I …

Let’s talk about rosacea

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare Leave a Comment

Just a few short years ago, I had hardly even heard of rosacea. I wasn’t sure what it was and felt certain it wasn’t something I needed to know about. But the fact is, with age, specially from the menopause onwards, rosacea becomes a more and more common condition. It turns out I have a mild form of rosacea A …

Is there anything that stress doesn’t affect? The answer is a resounding no and in this article, written by Shabir Daya, a pharmacist at Victoria health, it also ages us and in particular our skin.

Glynis BarberSkincare Leave a Comment

There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that, as we all know, with age comes a whole host of issues to deal with.

How to tackle pigmentation (video)

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare Leave a Comment

Pigmentation is a subject that concerns many people and I get asked a lot about it. In today’s video, I talk about managing pigmentation and also about managing expectations. There are no magic products and I personally have not had much success with treatments I’ve tried. Other than a chemical peel, which will require an anaesthetic and weeks of downtime, …

Say hello to a fantastic skincare range (video)

Glynis BarberBeauty, Skincare 1 Comment

I’ve been searching for a skincare range that is in keeping with the Ageless ethos but that also fully addresses the issues of ageing, mature skin. And it’s not been easy. The completely natural products I tried did not give the results I wanted and the more efficacious ones were full of undesirable toxins that, to my mind, undermine any …
