Wellness, that coveted glow and peace of mind. These topics were discussed at length at our latest workshop, called Your Health Is Your Wealth, which we hosted alongside our partners Solal, at the beautiful Mesh Club in Rosebank this past weekend. And if you missed it, you can read all about everything that was covered in our upcoming June edition on family health.

In addition, in this article Solal provides you with tried and tested techniques on how to get the best skin of your life and truly glow this year. So what is the best way to approach your beauty in combination with a holistic health plan?

Healthy aging is the key to beautiful skin from the inside out

True beauty comes down to placing equal importance on how you look, as well as how you feel mentally and physically. If you only focus on one or the other, there will be an imbalance to aging in a healthy manner. Experts at Solal Skincare explain that using scientifically-backed skincare products, which are complemented by vitamin supplements, provide a holistic approach to beauty with long-lasting and effective results.

Whether you want to smooth out wrinkles, reverse the effects of lifestyle damage or rejuvenate dry and dehydrated skin, you should work proactively with a dual approach to restore your beauty and glow both inside and out.

Lifestyle damage

Throughout your life, your skin acts as a barrier protecting you from environmental elements such as the sun and its harmful UV rays. Therefore, it’s little wonder that your skin’s appearance changes slightly over time due to these harmful elements. Solal’s SPF 30, Vitamin C Serum, Intense Replenishing Moisturiser and Revitalising Eye Serum work together to protect against UV-induced skin damage, strengthening the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

For a more holistic solution, the Solal Skincare range can be used with Solal Vita PQQ and Advanced Cellular Antioxidant vitamins, enriched with vitamin E and other antioxidants to help prevent damage to your skin cells caused by harmful elements such as smoking, sun exposure and pollution that can cause premature aging.

Dryness and dehydration

As the skin ages, it doesn’t produce as much oil or retain moisture as well as it used to. As a result, your skin looks less youthful as wrinkles and fine lines become more apparent. Start by protecting your skin from dryness and keeping it nourished with Solal’s Skin Cleanser, Replenishing Moisturiser and Vitamin C Serum, and compliment this with Solal Omega-3 Krill Oil and Omega-All vitamins.

These products ensure your skin cells stay hydrated throughout the day, while working on the top layer of the skin to form a protective water-retaining barrier, leading to supple, soft and plump-looking skin.

Wrinkles and sagging

Wrinkles and sagging skin are a result of a natural loss of collagen and elastin that occurs as you age. While aging should be a process to celebrate, there’s no shame in wanting to slow it down. Improve your skin’s radiance, elasticity and firmness with Solal’s Intense Replenishing Moisturiser and Revitalising Eye Serum, which stimulates collagen production and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. To achieve optimal results, use simultaneously with Solal’s Collagen Plus Skin Essentials and Vitamin A 5 000 IU, which together stimulate new skin-cell formation to help prevent wrinkles, sagging and pigmentation.
