Ap­ply tinted mois­turiser with sun­screen daily

Mois­turise your skin while pro­tect­ing it against harm­ful UV rays all while adding a bronzed fin­ish with the help of our or­ganic pals at Mukti Botan­i­cals. Their tinted mois­turiser with sun­screen pro­vides safe and ef­fec­tive cov­er­age from en­vi­ron­men­tal ag­gres­sors (aka the sun). Hand­crafted and for­mu­lated in the Mukti show­room at Maleny, this all-nat­u­ral sun­screen so­lu­tion con­tains SPF 15+ block-out prop­er­ties and is suit­able for all skin types, read­ily ab­sorbed and non-greasy. The lightly tinted for­mu­la­tion off­sets the white­ness of the zinc ox­ide (which gives it its sun­screen prop­er­ties) as well as strength­en­ing and main­tain­ing healthy skin cell growth, for­ti­fied with an­tiox­i­dants and na­tive Aus­tralian ex­tracts. On top of that, it’s ve­gan, con­tains nut oil, and is gluten, nanopar­ti­cle and chem­i­cal free.

DIY body scrub

Ditch hours bak­ing in the sun and get glow­ing skin the healthy way with a DIY ex­fo­li­at­ing scrub. Ex­fo­li­at­ing not only re­moves dead skin cells, it also stim­u­lates blood cir­cu­la­tion, giv­ing skin a ra­di­ant and healthy glow.

Here’s an easy DIY body scrub which triples as an ex­fo­lia­tor, mois­turiser and dessert. (If you dare). ■ 1/2 cup co­conut oil ■ 1/2 cup brown sugar ■ 1/2 tea­spoon vanilla Mix in­gre­di­ents to­gether. Mas­sage on skin for about five min­utes and rinse. Please note, ex­ces­sive ex­fo­li­a­tion can cause stress to the skin. Gen­er­ally, healthy skin should be ex­fo­li­ated no more than once a week, dry skin once a month and oily skin once or twice a week.

Hy­drate from within

Like any other or­gan cells, skin cells re­quire H20 to func­tion prop­erly. Wa­ter is es­sen­tial to main­tain op­ti­mum skin mois­ture and de­liver es­sen­tial nu­tri­ents to the skin cells. So, bot­toms up for glow­ing health inside and out.
