Gia Mills | Make Up in Midlife

View descriptionShare

For this episode, Michelle and Liz are joined by Gia Mills, a celebrity make-up artist and the co-founder of Skin in Motion. Products that are designed specifically for menopausal women and athletes. Makeup that stays on regardless of how hot you get. The list of people who use her Skin In Motion products includes Andy Murray, Jeremy Paxman, Poppy and Cara Delavigne, Nadine Baggot, Lisa Faulkner, Sienna Miller, and Natalie Imbruglia. Until the end of January, Two Women Chatting listeners can get 20% off all their products with code TWC20.

Gia shares the night-time skincare routine she recommends to her clients including the best order to apply night skincare products to get the optimum results. 


  • Menopause has a big impact on how your skin looks and, of course, hot flushes don't help 
  • Estrogen helps to regulate collagen production, skin hydration, and pigmentation.
  • Menopausal women need good coverage, but that does not have to mean using thick and claggy products.
  • Argan oil is absorbed well without clogging your pores.
  • Double cleansing improves the level of hydration you get from moisturising and conditioning products.
  • It is possible to quickly calm a hot flush using a misting spray. Gia explains why the one she has developed is so effective.
  • Reducing alcohol consumption has a positive impact on your skin.
  • Having a good night-time regime really supports your skin. 


“The menopause does affect your skin. And nobody told me that. I just thought I was getting old and haggard.”

“What happens when you go through menopause is the collagen depletes, your skin can get a lot drier, more irritable, etc.”

“Our products are brilliant with women who are going through certain symptoms of the menopause, and they can make them feel a bit more confident.”

“What's great is that the mascara is waterproof, but it's also nourishing, lifting and it's easy to remove.”

“We've got our witch-hazel water that I just sort of then double cleanse with and what that does is it gobbles up all this sort of dirt on the top of my skin.”

Join hosts Liz and Michelle redefining life over 50 as empty nesters, embracing the highs and lows of midlife with celebrity guests and experts, sharing a laugh on their podcast sofa. We talk about real concerns, issues, and fun topics that affect us, our friends, and our family. 

Midlife is not just about the menopause (although we’d be the first to admit it’s right up there!) but it is a time of adventure, change and reset - with plenty of opportunities and challenges along the way. 

Whether we’re chatting about ‘boomerang kids,’ diet failures (and occasional successes!), pro-ageing, travel, changing relationships, or inspiration for new jobs or activities, there’s always room for one more on our sofa.
