It’s called Evy and is unlike anything I’ve tried before. It may seem odd that cold, grey …

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 …

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 2 Comments

I gave up sunbathing many years ago, after a youth spent basking with great relish in the African sun. So ironically, after spending the first half of my life trying to get as dark as possible, I have spent the next half trying to preserve my skin and becoming paler and paler. But oh how I miss sunbathing and being …

Skin products that tackle pollution

Noah Hearle Beauty, Skincare Leave a Comment

Our poor skins. They are fighting a constant battle on our behalf. If it’s not UV rays or extreme temperatures, it’s hormones, or perhaps toxins from from the foods we eat. Added to this there’s the effects of too much alcohol, lack of sleep or poor nutrition. Or maybe a combination of all of these! But there’s another enemy that …
