At OPTIPHI® we are all about healthy, beautiful skin. Achieving this is so much easier when you combine our award winning products with a healthy lifestyle that includes keeping your body fit. Making healthier lifestyle choices and taking up physical activities are crucial to a successful skincare routine that produces results you want. To help you on your way, here are some ideas to get you moving and feeling fabulous:

 

  1. Why not take up golf?

Not only is golf a great form of exercise, it’s also really social. Gather some friends and visit one of the many picturesque golf courses South Africa has to offer. Enjoying the fresh air and open spaces is also great stress reliever.

 

  1. How about mountain biking (MTB) or triathlon?

MTB is fast becoming one of the leading sports of choice for many South Africans. Combine it with swimming and running and you have a triathlon. The great thing about MTB is that it’s the perfect sport for the whole family. Getting out and about as a family is excellent quality time and sets a good example for your children.

 

  1. Find a diet that works for you

Making smarter choices when it comes to your diet greatly contributes to achieving wellness goals – what you put in, is what you get out. With all the diet information out there it’s sometimes difficult to know which one will suit you best. A good rule of thumb is to opt for a diet that is balanced rather than one that is extreme. Extreme diets are hard to stick to and while it might seem like they are working wonders, many people resort to yoyo dieting because of the restriction. Remember discipline doesn’t have to be considered restrictive but rather as a clarity as to how you wish to live.

 

  1. Tools to help you on your way

When it comes to diet and fitness it really is mind over matter. With the advent of technology there are all kinds of apps available to help you set, track and achieve all your fitness goals. Forbes magazine has put together a list of the very best apps on offer to help you get your mind and body healthy.

 

  1. Phone a friend

Working with a partner to achieve fitness goals helps to keep both of you on track. Not only can you enjoy each other’s company when you are working out, you know that someone always has your back when it comes to keeping you motivated.

New You – Skin Resolutions!

Here is to beautiful, healthy skin in 2015

Young girl putting cream on her face

Each year we all make resolutions to begin the next stage of our lives in the most positive way. This year we are asking – why not kick off the 2015 with some motivating skin care resolutions?
Here are 4 resolutions that will ensure you have radiant, younger looking, skin in 2015:

 

  1. Wear Sunscreen!

Everyday – not just when you feel like it!

Not only does the sun dehydrate your skin, it is one of the major causes of melanin over production, which results in increased pigmentation.

Ensure that you choose a moisturizer with a sun protection factor such as the OPTIPHI® Classic Complete Therapy for daily moisturization.

Alternatively, the OPTIPHI Protect The Canvas can be applied on top of your moisturizer. .

If you plan to spend time outdoors, ensure that you  regularly apply an adequate SPF factor  sunscreen. Avoid premature aging caused by sun damage with OPTIPHI®.

 

  1. Cleanse your skin DAY and NIGHT…Do not neglect your daily regime!

Use the OPTIPHI® Classic Pure Cleansing Wash daily for clean, calm and smooth skin. Alternatively, Our Facial Cleanser has a calming effect on the skin whilst providing deep dermal cleansing. It balances the pH levels of your skin barrier and is suitable for all skin types.

 

  1. Regular Exfoliation!

Removing stubborn ,dead skin cells will reveal skin that looks young, refreshed and revitalized. The OPTIPHI® Muslin Cloth gently exfoliates the skin to improve skin texture by removing the superficial layer of cells through gentle mechanical exfoliation..
Boost your regular exfoliation with an optiphi® Peel, for fast skin changing lasting results.

 

  1. Hydrate your thristy skin!

As skin ages and is exposed to the elements, it becomes dehydrated, which makes it necessary for the moisture to be replenished. This speeds up the aging process resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. OPTIPHI® is formulated to replenish your skin with vital moisture, vitamins and minerals. This helps to restore skin density, support the structure of the skin, promote elasticity, activate collagen and replenish lost moisture.

 

There is no better feeling than having radiant skin! OPTIPHI® is designed to address your unique skin needs, and is the perfect solution to healthy, balanced, refined and radiant looking skin. With OPTIPHI it’s easy to keep your skin looking it best in 2015!

Look your best from every angle!

Don’t let summer holidays ruin your complexion

healthy face

With summer holidays just around the corner we are all looking forward to good times with friends and family. Be it enjoying the sunshine or taking in the sunset and fun after dark your skin still needs attention. With all these celebrations come “selfies” and pictures to record special memories. Don’t let the skin stressors that come with these festivities ruin your complexion.

 

Here are five skin stressors to avoid these holidays, to look your best from every angle:

 

  1. Sun exposure – by now everyone knows about sun damage and how it drastically speeds up the aging process. Make sure that you apply sunblock when you go outdoors and use a moisturiser with added sunblock.The OPTIPHI® Protect the Canvas includes an SPF 30 for everyday use.

For complete dermal vitality, the OPTIPHI® Restore Therapy moisturizer is formulated to refurbish skin density, support the structure of the skin, promote elasticity, activate collagen and replenish lost moisture. For the same benefits with a sun protection factor – try our Complete Therapy for daytime use.

 

TIP: Reapply your sun protection regularly throughout the day

  1. Dehydration – Exposure to the elements and not drinking enough water can lead to dry skin. Don’t forget the golden rule – hydration is the foundation of beautiful skin. Make sure that you use a good moisturiser and drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated.OPTPHI® offers various moisturizes to suit all skin types and conditions.
  2. Alcohol – Apart from the toxins in alcohol that make us look dreadful when we overdo it, alcohol is also very dehydrating. Make sure that you keep hydrated and use a good moisturiser to keep skin in healthy conditions.

 

TIP: Drinking plenty of water also helps with over-eating during the holidays too.

  1. Not getting enough sleep – when we are sleep deprived our bodies release the stress hormone cortisol that breaks down collagen, which is critical for firm and elastic skin.
    Another negative is the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. OPTIPHI® offers Eyesigns active gel to help should the festivities go long into the night.
  2. Healthy skin equals healthy complexion – holidays are filled with lazy days and a break from daily chores. Don’t cut corners over the holidays and neglect your skin. Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise – the secret to beautiful skin: Use OPTIPHI® cleanser daily for clean, calm and smooth skin; use the OPTIPHI® Muslin Cloth to gently exfoliate your skin; and finish with OPTIPHI® Classic Moisturizers or the OPTIPHI® Active Moisture Control Light.. the choice is yours.

 

There is no better feeling during summer holidays than making special memories and maintaining beautiful skin! Ensure your skin is always healthy to look your best every day. OPTIPHI® is designed to suit your unique skin needs, and is the perfect holiday solution to healthy, balanced, refined and radiant looking skin.
