We salute you – and your impressive sunscreen-wearing habits! Here are our top tips if you want to glow like an Antipodean!

  • Wear facial sunscreen. Every single day. We can’t stress it enough. Even if you’re in the middle of a bleak December day, your skin needs protecting from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Luckily, most moisturisers and / or make-up creams come with some SPF, so you’ve no excuse.
  • In bright sunshine, reach for a wide-brimmed hat. This will keep your face in the shade, giving you double protection.
  • Similarly, expose as little skin as possible, even on sunny days. Less is more, when it comes to gorgeous, undamaged skin.
  • Pack antioxidants into your healthy diet: oily fish, avocados, whole-grains, vitamin c-rich fruit – all of these will pack a skin-glowing punch.
  • Water, water, water – every diet plan should include at least 8 glasses a day. Once you get into the habit, you’ll really notice the difference, and not just with great skin. Improved concentration, clearer eyes, reduced hair-loss – lack of hydration is responsible for many physical ills.
  • Do more than cleanse, tone and moisturise – you’re no longer a teenager. As you age, your skin develops specific needs, and no two skin-types are the same. Invest in a consultation with a good facialist or dermatologist, go through any concerns you have, and create a bespoke skin-care plan.

But above all – don’t forget the sun screen!
