Glynis BarberHealth, Skincare 4 Comments

I have to confess that I find January to March the toughest time of the year. The winter is a long gloomy one here in the UK and it’s really hard to stay upbeat, energetic and glowing with health. It’s very tempting to stay home in baggy pants and eat comfort food. And yes, I’m just like everyone else when …
