Summer is one of the best times of the year especially if you live on the Gold Coast. The sun is shining, the beach is calling and we are celebrating the festive season with colleagues, friends and family.
If you’re anything like me you are probably drinking a bit too much and eating all of the festive foods. All of these things (while so much fun) definitely aren’t the best for having glowing skin, so what products can I recommend that will give you that little bit extra hydration, protection and nourishment?
If you were at my house and opened my bathroom cabinet (I know you’d love to..) these are the products you would find front and centre this summer season.
Queen of the Night – Mukti Organics
Recently released by one of our favourite suppliers, Mukti, this sumptuous and deeply moisturising night crème is fortified with Queen Garnet Plum, a new type of plum that was developed here in Queensland in 2010 as a premium super antioxidant fruit.
Combined with Ceramide Complex, plant-based Stem Cells and naturally-occurring antioxidants, this crème will restore, repair, and deeply hydrate your skin while you sleep. Suitable for all skin types, and especially recommended for those with mature skin.
- Lift, plump, firm
- Rejuvenate and strengthen supporting collagen
- Enhance hydration and prevent water loss
I personally love this cream so much. It is thick enough to feel like you are really nourishing your skin and yet it still feels like its penetrating. Dry patches I’ve had trouble managing in my ageing skin are gone and I’ve noticed I don’t need to exfoliate as much anymore. A new personal fave for me!
Clemence Clarify + Protect
The number one skin health rule is – wear sunscreen every day! Clemence Clarify and Protect is the solution for an SPF you can wear as a moisturiser and is perfect under your makeup. Light and creamy, it absorbs into the skin leaving a dewy base for makeup or going makeup free.
This wonder cream is a skincare as well as sun protection. With bio fermented (vegan) Hyaluronic Acid to help increase hydration in your skin and Rosehip, Jojoba, and Buriti oils to increase skin elasticity and stimulate skin repair and renewal, this cream is a must have for ageing skin. Don’t forget that with skincare including sunscreen, your face ends at the top of your breasts! Apply daily to your face, neck, decolletage and the backs of your hands. Future you will thank you!
Earth and Skin HA Complex
In my opinion, Hyaluronic Acid should be a staple in everyone’s skincare regimen. Especially if you are aged over 25. The body naturally produces Hyaluronic Acid which helps to hydrate the skin however this production declines as early as 20 years of age. Many HA’s on the market are sourced from rooster combs but not our brand Earth and Skin. Our HA is made from a biofermentation process of plants so it is not only vegan friendly but also cruelty free. Use HA daily under your moisturiser at night for added hydration and plumpness.
Special occasion coming up? Of course you do it’s the silly season!
Sheet masks are a must-do prior to any special event. The perfect base for event makeup is hydrated, dewy, glowing skin. When you can’t fit in a facial or you have a last minute event you’ve been invited to, sheet masks are the answer. We love the Vanessa Megan sheet masks which come in four varieties to suit any skin type and condition. I love the Silver and Hyaluronic Acid mask to plump my skin and I’ll be using it Christmas Eve for sure.
Sunscreen – The Kind (body)
When we say wear sunscreen every day we don’t just mean your face. Your hands, neck and décolletage are other areas that should also be protected. The Kind sunscreen is an Earth and Skin favourite. Loved by our team and our clients we literally can’t keep it on the shelf!
With a smooth and creamy texture, and a small size tube that looks divine, you can throw it in your handbag and reapply throughout the day.
Remember the biggest saviours for your skin in summer are to do with hydration and protection.
