Nu Skin is a proudly American beauty brand. They have been operating for over 30 years, bringing customers the best in anti-ageing and skin care. Luckily, this brand is now available in South Africa through private sellers and their online store.
Nu Skin's hair care range is just as innovative and effective as their skin care products. We recommend the Renu Mask - similar to a conditioner, this nourishing mask will have your locks shining from root to ends after just one use. Apply the mask after shampooing, but before conditioning. You don't need very much, a small dollop should do the trick. Run the product from the middle of your hair to the ends. Leave on for 5 - 10 minutes and rinse. Use in combination with the Nu Skin Moisturising Shampoo and Rich Conditioner for best results.

Coconut oil is one of the best natural hair care products for improving growth. It also nourishes the scalp and prevents excess sebum build up which can cause oily hair. Coconut oil can be used for almost any hair type, treating dryness, frizz and dullness. Just keep in mind that you should always use unprocessed coconut oil. Also, a little goes a long way so don't overdo it. Simply rub a dollop of this natural tonic through your hands and massage through the ends of your hair.

Walk For A Purpose at the country’s largest breast cancer awareness event, the annual Avon Justine iThemba Walkathon. With over 25 500 participants last year, this walkathon has become the biggest single day event held purely to generate awareness for breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in women, which makes education and awareness essential since most cases are treatable when diagnosed in time. With Avon Justine’s funding of the Breast Health Foundation’s education programme, generous donations, and involvement with the walkathon, they’re addressing these key issues and spreading the word that early detection does save lives.
Walk The Walk And Spread The Word!
The 2016 iThemba Walkathon will be initiated in waves, with designated groups of up to 10 000 people beginning their walk for a purpose. Water stations will be available at different points of the 7.9km or 5km routes, but participants are encouraged to also have their own water for themselves (and their four-legged companions) so they can stay hydrated while fully enjoying this epic event. At the finish line, there will be a number of exciting activities with nutriphase, who will also be giving away prizes and treats for friendly dogs. Locum Vet will also be onsite to assist your furry companions with minor issues, such as scuffed paws.
Walkers will once again have the opportunity to be part of a historic moment through the #PoutForAPurpose world record attempt at this year’s walkathon. In line with the company’s Beauty for A Purpose mission, this will be an Avon world record attempt for the most number of people applying lipstick at the same event. For those not based in Johannesburg – put on your pinkest Avon pout, take a photograph and upload it to social media using the hashtag #PoutForAPurpose.
There Will Be Loads Of Entertainment
With an exciting lineup of live Entertainment planned, including Kaya FM DJs, e-tv's Sunrise presenters, and other local artists, as well as numerous enterprising food stalls and other activities, participants will be able to relax and enjoy the rest of the day with family and friends after their walk. Participants can also make their dedication with ribbons on the Woman & Home Trees of Hope. The ribbons can be purchased when registering.
