Being Happy is more than just a feeling…

The Science behind Happiness!

Serotonin word cloud

It’s wonderful to feel happy, and there is something about the summer holidays that has “happy” written all over it. Have you ever wondered why the holidays make you feel so happy? After all, some of us enjoy our work, being productive and living with purpose. Sure, holidays are all about good feelings and very well earned downtime but the truth is that there is a science behind what actually makes us feel happy – there are a number of chemical compounds that affect our mood, dopamine being one of them. However, for the purposes of this article we shall focus on two particular hormones.

 

Happy Hormones

Two hormones that are responsible for making us feel happy:

 

Serotoninregulates your mood, prevents depression and makes you feel happy. Serotonin can be released by getting exposed to sunlight, by eating foods rich in carbohydrates and by exercising.

 

Endorphins – make you feel good by reducing your anxiety and your sensitivity to pain. Endorphins are released by exercising.

 

Summer holidays packed with sunshine, delicious food and time spent outdoors

Spending time with family and friends warms a person’s heart, now add some delicious food filled with carbohydrates, summer sunshine loaded with Vitamin D and a jam packed holiday schedule and you have the recipe for a gush of serotonin and endorphins. Your body feels healthy, happy and special holiday memories are made.

 

Celebrate the holidays with OPTIPHI®

Add some award-winning skincare products from OPTIPHI® and your skin will look and feel as happy as it should.  Just don’t forget to wear sunblock!

3 Easy Steps to do a Breast Self-Exam in the Comfort of your Home

Regular breast checks can save your life

Can7

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we at OPTIPHI® believe that regular checks are critical to the health and wellbeing of every woman. Regular self-examination of your breasts makes it easier to detect any changes. We cannot stress enough how monthly Breast Self-exams and regular Clinical Breast Examinations can save your life.

 

According to CANSA, Breast Cancer is the most common cancer affecting South African women – 1 in 35 women in South Africa will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer (NCR 2007). Many breast lumps are harmless, but they should all be checked.

 

Symptom-free women from the age of 40, should go for a mammogram (a special x-ray to detect lumps in the breast) at least every 3 years.

 

Here are 3 easy steps explaining how to perform a breast self-examination in the comfort of your own home:

 

Step 1: Look in the Mirror

Look for any changes in the contour, any swelling, dimpling of the skin, or changes in the nipples. Do this with your arms:

  • At your sides,
  • Raised in the air
  • With your hands on your hips with your muscles flexed.

Look for any dimpling, puckering, or changes, particularly on one side.

 

Step 2: Check each breast while standing up  

Move your fingertips around your entire breast and armpit area in a circular pattern moving from the outside to the center. If you discover any lumps, thickening, or hardened knots make an appointment to see your doctor.

 

Step 3: Lying down

When lying down, the breast tissue spreads out evenly along the chest wall. Place a pillow under your right shoulder and put your right arm behind your head. Using your left hand, move your fingertips around your right breast gently in small circular motions, covering the entire breast area and armpit.

 

Use light, medium, and firm pressure. Squeeze the nipple; check for discharge and lumps. Repeat for your left breast.

8 Breast Cancer Myths Busted

Not everything you hear about breast cancer is true – knowing the facts can save your life

Can2

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we at OPTIPHI® believe that regular checks are critical to the health and wellbeing of every woman. Knowing your breasts and the facts about breast cancer empower women with the knowledge to take care of their bodies and help minimize their breast cancer risk.

 

Here are some of the most common breast cancer myths busted:

 

Myth 1: Only older women get breast cancer

This couldn’t be further from the truth, many woman under the age of 50 get breast cancer. In fact, there are many young celebrities who have been in the news talking about their own battle with breast cancer.

 

Myth 2: Men don’t get breast cancer  

This is absolutely untrue. South African statistics show that 1 in 1046 men have a lifetime risk of getting breast cancer.

 

Myth 3: Alcohol plays no role in breast cancer

Drinking and an unhealthy lifestyle can increase your risk of breast cancer, as does smoking. (Not to mention the damage to your skin)

 

Myth 3: Nobody in my family has had breast cancer so I am not at risk

Those with a family history of breast cancer are at an increased risk, especially if close family members like a mother or sister has a history of breast cancer. However anyone and everyone can develop breast cancer – please do not ignore breast exam recommendations simply based on family history.

 

Myth 4: Only women who have had children are at risk

Women who have never had children and those who have children after the age of 30 are in fact at increased risk.

 

Myth 5: All breast lumps are cancerous

It’s very hard not to think the worst if you find a lump but the fact is that many breast lumps are harmless, but they should all be checked.

 

Myth 6: Breast implants increase your risk of breast cancer

Breast implants don’t put you at any greater risk. They might just mean that additional x-rays are necessary, as mammograms might not work as well.

 

Myth 7: Larger breasts equal a greater risk

It doesn’t matter what size your breasts are, big or small, your risk is not determined by breast size.

 

Myth 8: Breast cancer only comes in the form of lumps

Our blog on how to do a breast self-exam lists the changes that you should look out for. A lump is only one of them. And many lumps are harmless.

 

There is no better feeling than loving your skin and body!

7 Skincare Habits to Avoid

Don’t sabotage your skin care regime with disastrous habits

opti6

Our blog on the 7 signs of aging included all the info that you need to assess the state of your skin and how well your skincare products are working for you. But using good products goes hand in hand with good habits. Bad habits will sabotage your dream of having beautiful skin.

 

  1. Cutting corners

We focused on rebalancing your skin after winter in our blog.  The cardinal rule of skin care being:

  • Cleanse
  • Exfoliate
  • Moisturize

Don’t skip any of these critical steps for beautiful skin.

 

  1. Don’t fall asleep with make-up on

Sleeping with make-up on clogs pores and can cause breakouts. To avoid unwanted blemishes you need to maintain a disciplined routine, especially at night. And then cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize – 3 easy steps to beautiful skin.

 

  1. Using soap to cleanse your skin

Soap is alkaline so it upsets the pH balance of your skin and compromises your skin barrier. OPTIPHI® Facial Cleanser cleans, calms and smoothes your skin providing the correct skin pH resulting in an optimally hydrated skin barrier.

 

  1. Steaming hot showers

Washing your face in the shower with very hot water can contribute to redness and inflammation, one of the 7 signs of aging.

 

  1. Professional skincare advice

Enlist the help of a professional  skin expert to advise you on the best skincare products to suit your unique requirements. This will ensure that you get the very best results from your skincare regime.

 

  1. Drink enough water

Hydrated skin looks smoother, is more vibrant and is less likely to show deep expression lines. Water also helps to remove toxins from the body.

 

7.Wear sun block

Sun damage is one of the major causes of premature aging. Not only does it dehydrate the skin, it is one of the major causes of hyperpigmentation. Ensure that you choose a moisturizer with a sun protection factor – try OPTIPHI® Complete Therapy for daytime use. If you plan to be outdoors for an extended period ensure that you apply and re-apply a good sun block with a high sun protection factor.

 

There is no better feeling than loving your skin! OPTIPHI® is designed to suite your unique skin needs, and is the perfect solution to healthy, balanced, refined and radiant looking skin. Support your skincare regime with healthy habits.

Age Gracefully: Be Sun Wise

During the summer holidays, you will most likely be exposed to the sun. We cannot stress the importance of protecting your skin with the right products enough!

Sun exposure is the leading cause of skin cancer but it is also a major contributing factor when it comes to the 7 signs of aging. 

Why does sun damage age the skin?

Let’s start off by addressing the effect sun has on the skin. Sun exposure increases melanin production in the skin.

This leads to that bronze tanned appearance, but this melanin can also leave your skin blotchy and pigmented.

Increased sun exposure can also cause vessels near the surface to dilate giving you a permanently red and flushed look, often associated with older skin. Sunspots and age spots form, what more do we need to say…

Finally increased sun exposure will rapidly dehydrate the skin. Dehydrated skin will become brittle, thin and fragile.

This results in a wrinkle formation and dull looking skin texture associated with age. So let OPTIPHI® help you do something about it.

What do we suggest you do this summer?

First off, use a broadband sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30. We recommend our OPTIPHI®Protect the Canvas should be applied frequently to shield skin against UV exposure. Protect the Canvas is the first line of defence in fighting photo aging. This is a sun protection cream that acts as a reliable broad spectrum UV filter – it provides that SPF30 protection you need and it assists in reducing the signs of photo aging.

classic

The Facial Cleanser and Muslin Cloth combination is our second line of defence against the perils of the summer sun, ensuring a smooth cleansed skin and adequate removal of dead skin cells. The OPTIPHI® Facial Cleanser cleanses deeply and gently removes impurities without disturbing the barrier integrity of the skin. It also desensitizes irritation to the skin and provides light chemical exfoliation.

Our OPTIPHI® Muslin Cloth used in combination with the Facial Cleanser improves the skin texture. The cloth offers additional gentle exfoliation to smooth the superficial layer of the skin whilst cleansing. This means your skin starts the day in the healthiest possible way, at the correct pH and without damage caused by harmful soaps.

The third step to being sun wise this summer, is to enjoy the benefits of a skin moisturiser which addresses your cellular hydration and balances your intracellular hyaluronic acid levels, sustains skin equilibrium and prevents dry or dehydrated skin– such as our Moisture Control Light.

Remember to apply the Moisture Control Light in the morning and before bed on a clean skin for ultimate hydration, or for enhanced anti-aging benefits combine with the Revitalizers or Activegels. We often make the mistake of neglecting our skin in summer due to the higher humidity levels but the additional sun exposure affects the skin just as much as the dry winter.

Take our advice; protect your skin and age gracefully by being SUNWISE!

Early detection saves live! Optiphi® Cares!

How should a breast self-exam be performed?

1)    In the shower

Using the pads of your fingers, move around your entire breast in a circular pattern moving from the outside to the centre, checking the entire breast and armpit area. Check both breasts each month feeling for any lump, thickening, or hardened knot. Notice any changes and get lumps evaluated by your healthcare provider.

2) In front of a mirror

Visually inspect your breasts with your arms at your sides. Next, raise your arms high overhead. Look for any changes in the contour, any swelling, or dimpling of the skin, or changes in the nipples. Next, rest your palms on your hips and press firmly to flex your chest muscles. Left and right breasts will not exactly match—few women’s breasts do, so look for any dimpling, puckering, or changes, particularly on one side.

3) Lying down

When lying down, the breast tissue spreads out evenly along the chest wall. Place a pillow under your right shoulder and your right arm behind your head. Using your left hand, move the pads of your fingers around your right breast gently in small circular motions covering the entire breast area and armpit.

Use light, medium, and firm pressure. Squeeze the nipple; check for discharge and lumps. Repeat these steps for your left breast.

Are you ready for your travels?

Summer holidays are almost upon us and with any luck some of us will be away for some sun, sea and leisure! Some extra lucky few will be heading internationally and of course that means airports, airport security and travel restrictions. Never fear though, OPTIPHI has their award winning 2in1 range to save the day.

The Concept

The concept is simple. Create a dual pump OPTIPHI product range that will allow you to travel comfortably anywhere in the world with your favourite homecare range. So that’s what we did. And we created three essential ranges.

• (Moisturize) Facial Cleanser and Moisture Control Light

• (Protect) Facial Cleanser and Protecting Revitalizer

• (Brighten) Facial Cleanser and Complexion Control

The cleanser is constant as this forms part of every daily regime. And besides, who would turn down a ph. neutral, soap free cleanser that deep cleanses and removes impurities from you skin without disturbing the barrier integrity. It also desensitizes the skin to irritation and provides light exfoliation.

Moisturize with Moisture Control Light

You should always make sure that your skin remains moisturized no matter the season. It should be a daily habit, all year long.

Summer might trick you into thinking that you do not need to apply moisturizer but the heat from the sun and the contact with sea water will cause your skin to get dehydrated. And we all know how skin dehydration is a main contributing factor in skin ageing.

Protect your skin with Protecting Revitalizer

During the summer holidays, you will most probably be exposing yourself to the sun in one way or another. We cannot stress enough the importance of protecting your skin with the right products.

The Protect 2 in 1 is ideal in that it will help you against the effect of the sunrays on your skin.

Protecting Revitalizing cream contains heat-activated active that shields the skin and potentiates the self-protective capabilities of the skin – thus fighting the signs of photo-aging

Brighten your skin with Complexion Control

Improve pigmentation and boost collagen with OPTIPHI’s Complexion Control.

The Even Complexion & Brightening Therapy is the ideal product if you happen to suffer from hyperpigmentation – caused by sun as well as environmental factors.

Or if your skin needs a radiance booster to face then New Year? Don’t look further.

We have the answer for all your holiday needs. This OPTIPHI 2in1 range did not win the Fairlady “Best of Beauty” without merit, so don’t be shy, go get yours now. Better yet, ask for it in your Christmas stocking this year.

‘A multi-tasking, two-in-one skincare product that leaves my skin feeling hydrated. And it fits into my travel bag with ease. Genius!’

Relieve skin stress this summer with OPTIPHI

Did you know that stress will show on your skin? Most of us are constantly on the go, especially at this time of year, when Christmas parties need arranging and holiday plans make the calendar year shorter. You have to get everything finished and the stress can be unbearable. OPTIPHI have recognized this trend and have decided to keep your skin stress free with our Fantastic Skin Trio initiative.

The OPTIPHI On-The-Go TRIO

Do you want to save your skin from the stresses of life? At OPTIPHI we know our products will reverse visible signs of aging with our specific active ingredients we can tailor a range to combat the stresses of the daily grind. What’s more, we have made it a special offer to take advantage of this skin insight. We want to hydrate and activate your skin this summer. So this is what we suggest and offer: Purchase a Moisture Control Light or Moisture Control Ultra and Dermintense Activegel together and we will provide you with a FREE “ON-THE-GO” 2 in 1 Protect Dual.

Start treating your skin today.

What do the products do?

In essence OPTIPHI wanted to create the perfect skin routine for the on-the go man or woman. We wanted to cover all the aspects of daily skin care while combating stress effects on the skin.

Thus the OPTIPHI TRIO:

2 in 1 Dual with PROTECTING REVITALIZER

This is the FREE product if you purchase the other two. Why did we include it? Well because the dual is just that: a dual dispenser and it always contains an OPTIPHI cleanser to start the day with the correct non-soap and correct ph for your skin. We then chose the Protecting

Revitalizer because it contains heat-activated actives that shield the skin and promotes the self-protective capabilities of the skin – thus fighting the signs of photo-aging. This product is designed to “turn back the sun dial” on existing photo-damage due to environmental exposure.

The Protecting Revitalizer:

• Promotes the maintenance of the anti-oxidant systems,

• Soothes & protects skin cells against solar damage,

• Slows down the destruction of skin proteins,

• Builds new proteins,

• Improves DNA health,

• Protects against UV radiation

All of this assists with the reduction of the visible signs of aging.

MOISTURE CONTROL LIGHT

We included Moisture Control Light or Moisture Control Ultra into the stress TRIO because these products play a key role in keeping your skin supple, smooth and hydrated. It should be your skin’s daily companion throughout the year! Moisturizing your skin every single day is a step no one should ever skip! You might think that keeping your skin moisturized is only important in winter! Think again! Summer is a vital time to be thinking about skin hydration – apply moisturizer frequently, because the heat, sun and swimming dehydrate your skin faster than you know.

DERMINTENSE ACTIVEGEL

Finally we included the Dermintense Activegel. This is a collagen and elastin enhancement therapy that provides maximum protection against UV damage at a cellular level. This is a key element especially for us living in South Africa.

Our skin needs a shield against the powerful sun, in summer of course, but also throughout the year. The Dermintense Activegel increases the cells ability to produce enzymes and proteins, which in turn, improves the overall condition of the skin. The Dermintense Activegel, contains peptides, activates collagen and elastin production, builds skin matrix, and protects the skin against 7 signs of aging.

What are you waiting for?

Head down to your nearest OPTIPHI stockist to take advantage of our Fantastic Skin Trio initiative. The results will be worth it, your skin will love you and so too will the camera during this year’s Christmas and holiday festivities.
