Appy & Healthy
A health-centric app can offer the support you need to get on track, stay healthy, and become active for a long time to come. FitStar is like having a personal trainer on your smartphone. It uses the personal information you provide about your body and your health goals to generate personalised plans just for you; adjusting to your feedback and capabilities appropriately. If you want to hit the gym with a full routine, it’ll generate a training session for you. If you want a quick workout instead, it’ll make a short at-home session to follow. Instructional videos add to the muscle- centric fanfare… and if you’re feeling self-conscious, you don’t have to share the results.
One of the biggest health movements brewing is clean beauty. Women are now reading the labels on their beauty products as carefully as their food. They’re scanning moisturisers for ingredients to avoid and seeing skincare as an extension of their health. As a result, natural and organic brands are sprouting up. Try Dr Hauschka, Seavite or Voya for skin-friendly beauty alternatives.
