Let’s talk about rosacea

Glynis Barber Beauty, 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 …

The amazing anti-redness serum

Glynis Barber Skincare 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. When it comes to skin we are dealing with a skin tone that becomes more and more uneven (pigmentation anyone?) and a good dose of hormonal flushing. Pink may be a girl’s “favourite” colour, …

How to tackle pigmentation (video)

Glynis Barber Beauty, 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.

Say hello to a fantastic skincare range (video)

Glynis Barber Beauty, 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.

I may have broadened the field when it comes to skin products as I’ve aged, but my love for all things organic is alive and kicking.

My favourite affordable skin products

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 5 Comments

In a perfect world, we would all have amazing skin products that did everything we need. Products that tackle multiple issues like ageing, acne, pigmentation etc with state of the art dynamic ingredients, but somehow are dirt cheap rather than the usual eye watering prices that mean most of us simply can’t afford them.
