Doctor, mother, entrepreneur and fashion icon are just some of the titles we can use to describe this week’s summer flame. Dr Nandipha is an inspiration, the ultimate role model and she’s definitely bringing the heat!

Fun Fact

Dr Nandipha has two university degrees - a BSc in Health Sciences as well as a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB) from Wits University. She’s revealed that she’s wanted to become a doctor since the age of 6 because she’s always envisioned herself helping people.

How she glows

Nandipha left her job at a public hospital to start Optimum Medical Solutions, which focuses on skincare and aesthetics; so she knows all about getting glowing skin. She’s all about taking care of your skin from the inside out and swears by maintaining a healthy, balanced diet, getting enough sleep and then making sure that you exfoliate, wash and moisturise daily.

Steal her style

You can totally steal the good doctor’s style by keeping your clothes chic and simple. Nandipha’s casual looks usually consist of a plain t-shirt, jeans and stylish sandals. She keeps things minimal and effortless, adding a single piece of statement jewellery or a bold lip colour to bring a little bit of drama. We love it!

Why she’s a flame

“Draw comfort in knowing that you have whatever it takes to achieve your goals and your hearts desires.”

Dr Nandipha is a medical doctor with style and substance, her IG page is full of advice and inspiration on how to navigate the professional world as well as making your dreams come true. She’s passionate about giving help to others and says that it’s influenced a lot of choices. Just this year, she made it to the Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans for her achievements as a medical practitioner and entrepreneur.
