Beauty isn’t only skin deep. In fact, it comes from within – in more ways than one. Every woman knows that to stay looking gorgeous, a holistic approach is needed. Zehra is the perfect complement to your daily beauty routine, and nourishes the very cells that give your skin youthful elasticity and smoothness – making it an essential component of women’s health.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN
Collagen, the most abundant material in the human body (25–35%), is the elastic net which makes skin resilient, strong and elastic.
Picture a trampoline: when something heavy is placed on it, the trampoline sinks down a little, but, as soon as the object is removed, the trampoline springs back into its original shape. When a trampoline becomes older, especially if exposed to the elements (sun, rain, etc.), it begins to sag, and eventually is unable to return to its original shape. However, by taking care of it, and therefore maintaining the elastic fibres that give it bounce, the trampoline will remain resilient and elastic.
WHAT IS PEPTAN
Peptan™ is a type 1 hydrolysed collagen nutraceutical supplement with a high degree of bioactivity, proven to stimulate collagen production when taken daily. This type of collagen is identical to that found in human bones and skin, and is easily utilised by the body.
Peptan™ hydrolysed collagen supports:
Prevention of deep wrinkle formation
Post-exercise recovery time
Weight control (as satiating macronutrient)
ZEHRA AND YOUR DAILY BEAUTY ROUTINE
Skin Care Products
Whether you use foaming or cream cleanser, toner or cold water, lotion or cream, Zehra fits seamlessly into your daily beauty routine to boost antioxidant levels, and support your body’s natural collagen production.
Beautiful skin needs the right nutrition – the closer to nature the better, just like Zehra with Peptan™ Collagen. An abundance of fruit and vegetables provides antioxidants – vital for women’s health and to fight free-radical damage. Fibre will help your body to stay toxin-free, while protein and amino acids are needed for tissue repair and regeneration. And don’t forget water to cleanse your body and for optimum skin hydration.
There’s a reason why it’s called ‘beauty sleep’. During the 7-9 hours (ideally) in which we’re sleeping, the body repairs itself – including the skin. The most essential time for peak skin renewal is between 00h00 midnight and 04h00 (this is usually when we’re in delta sleep). The skin’s ability to stay hydrated is dependent on good sleep. Furthermore, sleep is important for antioxidants to do their work in combating free radicals, and to reduce the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (cell-signalling proteins) which cause inflammation, and thus greater wrinkle-formation and acne.
Stress has long been known to affect skin in a way that few skin care products can combat. A 2001 study established that, “Stress has a negative effect on the barrier function of the skin, resulting in water loss that inhibits the skin’s ability to repair itself after an injury.” The Zehra woman knows she needs to set aside ‘me-time’ every day. Use this precious time to do breathing exercises – they’re known to ease stress, plus the increased oxygen flow will benefit your skin and brain health too.
Your body was made to move and regular physical activity is vital for women’s health. Exercise encourages blood flow to the skin, bringing essential nutrients to the cells and removing toxins. What’s more, exercise has been shown to reduce stress levels, and increase lymphatic circulation, thus encouraging further toxin removal.
