Winter-proof your beauty< back
Moisture stripping cold winds, central heating and low humidity can take a toll on your beauty during the cold. Winter is also a period when our social calendars can have a much-needed slow-down giving us an opportunity to hibernate indoors (just a little!) and reboot.
Here are some quick tips on what you can do during the cooler months for a more youthful and beautiful you.
1 .Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
The winter climate often leaves skin dry, flaky and can be known to inflame skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. The best thing you can do for your skin is optimise your hydration. Studies have shown that taking marine collagen daily for 2 months can increase skin hydration and resilience by a huge 91%. Include 1-2 sachets/scoops of ProPlenish to help keep dry chapped skin at bay through the winter months.
2. Take a break
Use the winter months to give your body a mini-break from items such as alcohol, processed sugar, cigarettes and caffeine. All of these items can speed up the ageing process by weakening the collagen in your skin contributing to wrinkles and unwanted premature ageing.
3. Jump on a juice cleanse
Take the time to engage in a quality juice cleanse with whole organic produce to reboot your system. A well crafted cleanse for as little as 1 -2 days can help to enhance skin, flush out toxins, purify your kidneys, improve body function and increase energy levels. We recommend including a sachet/scoop of ProPlenish in one of the daily juices. Being 100% natural protein means it will assist to make you feel fuller for longer.

4. Detox your beauty bag
Take some time to read the full list of ingredients on your skincare labels and consciously avoid any products containing harsh abrasives, chemical preservatives or synthetic fragrance. Skincare containing these items are know to strip the skin’s lipid and sebum barrier of vital moisture leaving skin vulnerable to dehydration.
5. Keep moving
The winter months can make it less inspiring to get out and stay active. But remember that summer bodies are made in winter! Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and contributes to muscle tone. Including marine collagen in your daily diet can help to boost lean muscle gain and decrease recovery time. A sachet of ProPlenish is the perfect addition pre, during or post workout to maintain muscle tone and improve performance for your bikini ready summer body!
6. Get quality Zzz’s.
One of the most essential parts of your daily beauty routine is sleep. Lack of quality sleep can contribute to a dull and lacklustre complexion and even affect hair health. Your body boosts blood flow while asleep, feeding important nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to the skin and hair. So get some good shuteye to wake glowing!
