After a long, hot summer and leading into Autumn, it’s a good time to take a look at your skin and reassess your skincare routine. Did you accumulate any sun damage over summer? Is your skin feeling dry or looking dull? There are many things you can do to help your skin get back to looking and feeling its best, and Dr. Scott McGregor is here to tell us how.
Cooler air temperature can cause drier skin, so up the ante with your moisturiser for both your face and body. Find a moisturiser with added benefits to help protect and repair your skin. Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) and Vitamin C are both amazing at helping to repair some of the damage done to your skin over summer, such as hyperpigmentation and fine lines. It's best to make sure they are in your daily moisturisers.
Our Good Night Skin Restoring Cream contains 7% Niacinamide as well as Vitamin C packed Kakadu Plum Extract, plus heaps of moisture-boosting goodies. Our Kakadu Plum Body Milk also packs a punch in this area, perfect for all over body use.
Sun exposure is the #1 contributing factor to skin damage and up to 80% of skin aging is due to sun exposure, otherwise known as photoaging. This occurs more prominently in areas such as the face and chest (décolletage).
If you don't do anything else with your skin regime, you absolutely can not afford to forget daily sunscreen application. You really should cover all exposed skin whenever the UV index is higher than 3 (and in Australasia, that means nearly every day)!
Our new Good Morning SPF 50 Daily Face Sunscreen, otherwise known as our #SPFwithbenefits, is the perfect addition to your daily skincare routine. As well as maximum UV protection, it is packed with moisturising goodies such as Hyaluronic Acid, skin repairing ingredients such as Carotenoids from Tomato Extract and blue light protection from Carnosine. Designed to be used as your everyday moisturiser and daily SPF protection.
As well as a daily face sunscreen, you need to ensure your body is protected. Choose an all over sunscreen that not only protects, but also hydrates and moisturises your skin. Our range of broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreens are enriched with emollients such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. Have sensitive skin? Opt for a fragrance free, dermatologically tested sunscreen like our Sensitive Sunscreen SPF 50+ or Baby Mineral SPF 50+.
