Hair Loss in Women

Glynis Barber Hair 2 Comments

Hair loss is one of the topics that has been repeatedly requested for me to cover. We all know that this is a frequent problem for men but it’s also a frequent and very upsetting problem for women. Why does it happen and more importantly is there anything we can do to stop it? Shabir Daya (pharmacist at Victoria Health) …

As I’ve written before I prefer to use products on my skin that are either organic and/or with as few synthetic chemicals as possible.

Glynis Barber Beauty 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.

Boost for eyelashes

Glynis Barber Beauty 2 Comments

Eyelashes seem to get thinner, shorter and paler with time. Restoring them can make a big difference to how one looks. Of course, a lick of mascara can do the trick, but wouldn’t it be nice to have lovely lashes ALL the time? There are now lots of products that darken and lengthen lashes. Some of them make them quite (unnaturally) long …
