Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare Leave a Comment

I’ve been trying to meet up and interview skin guru Marie Reynolds for a long time. However with this lady being in such demand and with people fighting each other to get an appointment with her, I honestly didn’t think it would be possible. So how generous of Marie to take the time to meet up with me and record …

Why ageing accelerates after the menopause (video)

Glynis Barber Beauty, Skincare 3 Comments

It’s so not fair. Women’s skin ages faster than men’s and that’s a fact. And it’s all due to our hormones. Oestrogen in particular. Once it’s had it’s way with us, it just abandons all it’s wonderful and beneficial purposes and leaves us on the scrapheap, parched and devoid of collagen. Oestrogen is a bitch But are we going to …

More dynamic skin products

I’ve now been using Garden of Wisdom (GOW) products from VICTORIA HEALTH for a few months and my skin is really loving them.

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 …

Skin has many enemies in today’s world, from diet to lack of sleep to stress. However pollution in many of our cities is now so bad that it has arguably become enemy no.1.

Millions of us live in cities and big towns and air pollution is such a part of our lives that we don’t even think about it.
