FEED AND FORTIFY

 

If you feel like your skin health has plateaued with topical applications, it might be time to extend your focus to what you’re ingesting. The Ministry of Health estimates 60% of New Zealanders fail to consume 5+ a day. With our diets severely lacking in the nutrients that our body requires, nutraceuticals have become imperative for maintaining general health as well as a holistic approach to beauty. Introducing Advanced Nutrition Programme to New Zealand, they provide the transparency in ingredient traceability as well as a sustainable ethos to reduce carbon footprint and protect sea life. Skincare Ultimate, $140, includes antioxidants, omegas, vitamin A, CoQ10 and Biotin to target rough texture, wrinkles, dehydration, pigmentation and circulation in each layer of our skin. Contained in portable pods, they’re an easy way to implement vitamins and minerals into your diet for true beauty from within.

Fear of Fall Out

We live in a time where documentation is a near-obsessive habit. Our physical appearance has always manoeuvred our self-confidence, however, the domination of social media has exacerbated this more than ever. Recently, Nioxin commissioned Yale University psychologist, Dr Marianne LaFrance, to research the global psychological impact of hair thinning. With over a quarter of the 4,000 recipients stating they would avoid social interactions and 68% of the 25-34 year old cohort feeling self-conscious and concerned about hair-thinning. The Nioxin System Kit, $69, has solved the catch 22 that regular thickening solutions trip on – fast colour fade. Providing an affordable and approachable 3-step system, it’s a great way to promote thicker and fuller hair while sealing in colour.
