RESCUE SUMMER SKIN
We’ve all heard the slip, slop, slap motto, but here’s five extra tips to keep your skin healthy and radiant coming into summer on the sunny Sunshine Coast.
Sit under some cool shade
Sunday Supply Co is making sun safety stylish with its vintage-inspired beach umbrellas. Combining classic charm with modern finishes, these cool shades are made for beach bums to enjoy an endless summer without their skin suffering.
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.
