This is what 54 looks like: Supplement brand owner says ‘mediation’ and homeopathic skin care keeps her youthful
- Ann-Louise Holland, 54, who lives in Frome, has her own supplement brand
- Singleton spends a few minutes in bed every morning meditating
- Preserves a youthful appearance with a homeopathic cream that soothes dry skin
Ann-Louise Holland is single and lives in Frome, Somerset. After working in PR for 30 years, she founded her own supplement brand, Kansha Alchemy.
Last December I moved to Somerset from London and now I can walk in the fresh air every day. Three times a week I use the free BorrowMyDoggy app, where you can walk other people’s dogs. I also do yoga in the garden every other day. Yoga is my lifeline: it keeps me strong, flexible and healthy!
FIGHT THINNING HAIR
When I was 40, I was diagnosed with a form of alopecia caused by a poor diet. Things got worse after I broke up with my long-term partner in 2012. I had the feeling that no one would look at me anymore! I have tried many expensive treatments but nothing worked. So I created my own Good Hair supplements, with herbs, minerals and nutrients, without synthetic fillers. My hair is now thicker and growing faster too.

Every morning I spend a few minutes meditating in bed. I call it ‘beditation’! I love Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey’s free 21-day meditation experience (chopracentermeditation.com). It includes a ten-day guided meditation, plus a positive mantra to repeat each day. It has helped me reprogram negative self-talk. And I sleep like a log.
HOMEOPATHIC SKIN CARE
my favorite moisturizer is Seven Cream (£14.25, helios.co.uk), a homeopathic cream that soothes dry skin. I apply it at night and my skin heals better, is plumper, softer and looks more vibrant. During the day, I wear Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Day Cream (£19.80, lookfantastic.com), which is lighter.
My skin is pale, so I wear makeup every day. I love Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer (£30), which gives long-lasting, sheer coverage, and finish with Perricone MD No Makeup Skincare Blush (£29, both lookfantastic.com), a subtle liquid blush that I put on my cheeks.
