Over the last couple of years, the word ‘menopause’ has finally become acceptable. That’s all good news, but bringing it into the spotlight as being a perfectly normal biological fact has highlighted the lack of available resources and education around the subject.

Menopause isn’t an illness – it’s a biological process that happens to fifty percent of the population and the subject is our passion. We can offer perspectives from either end of the journey.  Hair, skin, mood, and metabolism may all change as our hormones fluctuate.

Everything we recommend has been carefully tested by our team of hot (get it?) women.

Mariella Frostrup

Mariella Frostrup is a broadcaster, journalist and campaigner. Her 2018 groundbreaking documentary about the menopause helped to start a national discourse. She currently helms her own daily afternoon show on Times Radio, writes a weekly dilemma column for The Sunday Times Magazine and a monthly travel column for The Telegraph. She has two dogs, two children and one husband. Menopause and midlife are her passions – campaigning for better education, support and accessible and affordable HRT (and other solutions). She also loves good skincare.

Alice Smellie

Alice Smellie has written for a wide range of national publications, including The Daily Mail, The Daily Telegraph, Marie Claire and Instyle magazine. She has two dogs and three children. Her passion for menopause campaigning is born from the development of a midlife social conscience, and the realisation that provision for women’s health, and especially around menopause, is appalling. Vain as you like, and an ex-beauty and health editor, she’s keen on evidence-based solutions.
