you’re one in a million

The idea of what Women’s Health actually is when you simply lowercase it and call it “women’s health” has changed an awful lot in just a few short years. And I, for one, am thrilled to celebrate it. Whether body positivity and self-love were phrases in your internal lexicon back then or not, they should be now. Your Insta feed is probably peppered with ‘strong not skinny’, but it shouldn’t make these declarations any less powerful. Sometimes, though, you just need another woman to say it first. And that woman is Rolene Strauss.

I managed to lose 32kg between 2013 and 2016. I then got retrenched, my mom was diagnosed with cancer and six months later she passed away, I underwent total knee replacement surgery that…

I drink loads of water, but my lips are constantly dry. Help! ANSWER Here’s the thing: the skin on your lips is thinner than anywhere else on your body and it doesn’t contain any oil glands to keep itself hydrated. That makes your pout more sensitive than the male ego – and water is only a small part of it. “Dry lips can be caused by a number of factors, such as exposure to cold weather, wind, dry air, air-conditioning, long flights and even using lip balms and toothpastes that contain irritating or sensitising ingredients, such as peppermint, menthol and some chemical preservatives,” explains Fiona Tuck, skin expert and nutritional medicine practitioner. “Drinking water will help to plump the lips by providing moisture to the water reserves in the skin, but it…
