Preparing your Skin for the Warmer Weather

The heat is turning up here in Australia and if you’re someone who spends a lot of time outside, now is the time to really take care of your skin. You will want to be putting more focus on hydration to ensure your skin is healthy and glowing whilst minimising damage and skin ageing. It is also important to avoid using chemicals or damaging ingredients that are particularly drying during this season.
 

1. SUN JUJU REEF SAFE & VEGAN SUNSCREEN

This is your new go-to body and face sunscreen ladies. Sun Juju is locally made in Byron Bay and isfree from oxybenzone and octinoxate, two chemical filters banned in Hawaii because they've been found to contribute to reef bleaching. They are also hormone-inhibitors and endocrine disruptors so not great for our bodies either. They're also Avobenzone and Homosalate free. To make it even better,Sun Juju offers dual protection with Kakadu Plum, nature's highest source of Vitamin C. It protects skin from free radicals caused by UV that break down collagen and cause premature ageing. So you're getting sun protection and free radical protection all in one! It rubs on clear and leaves no greasy white cast — works well under makeup and with your skin routine. The sunscreen is also packaged in tins because aluminium has a 75-95% chance of being recycled and repurposed. It's also infinitely recyclable, meaning the quality of aluminium always stays the same no matter how many times it's recycled. Meanwhile, plastic and recycled plastic packaging only has a 9% chance of being recycled and often ends up in landfill or the oceans breaking down into micro plastics that end up in our salt, water and food (we eat a credit card's worth of plastic a week). The perfect lil Christmas gift too that is eco-conscious and health focused, we're here for it.

2.ULTRA VIOLETTE SPF 50+ QUEEN SCREEN

Let's face it. We want beautiful, youthful skin forever right? One of the simplest ways to avoid signs of ageing is to use a high quality sunscreen. The Ultra Violette Queen Screen is a sunscreen disguised as a serum to go underneath your makeup. It also includes Dragosine Plus, a super powerful active that shields it from the entire solar spectrum, including infrared and blue light.  

3.Lemon Myrtle and Rose Face Oil - cedar and stone

 

A finalist in the 2020 Beauty shortlist awards, the Lemon Myrtle and Rose Face Oil by Cedar and Stone is perfect for hydrating your skin. This face oil brightens complexions and leaves your skin feeling beautifully nourished and intensely hydrated with luxurious organic apricot oil which is rich in vitamins and fatty acids. The perfect serum to put on after a day out in the sun.

 

4. BANGN BODY FIRMING LOTION

This firming lotion is loved by thousands. Not only that it acts as a moisture magnet, which is ideal for those who spend there days in the ocean and out in the heat but it rebuilds elasticity, increases skin circulation and works to renewal skin cells. It is also known for reducing the appearance of redness (perf for sunburn), bumps and breakouts due to the anti-inflammatory properties. A win-win for our skin!

5. AESOP PROTECTIVE LIP BALM SPF30

 

Our Customer Care gal Britt swears by this stuff. An absolute essential that is easily forgotten when it comes to summer time and always forgotten about. A super hydrating balm that has been designed to shield the lips from the sun’s rays using UVA and UVB filters. Take this one everywhere with you ladies!  

6. Three warriors self-tanning mousse

Most of you probably love to get your tan on during this hot season (I mean who doesn’t love a bronze glow) but as we all know and sometimes prefer to turn a blind eye to, UV rays can be pretty harmful in large amounts and are the main cause of aged skin and damaged collagen. Sunless self-tans are the way to go ladies for dewy, sun-kissed skin. Thats why our warehouse manager, Lara swears by the Three Warriors self-tanning mousse. The CEO and Founder of Three Warriors, Corbin Halliday says "our skin is the largest organ, everything we lather on is absorbed into our blood stream. Read the labels of products you're using on your body, say no to toxins and glow with a health natural looking tan without the sun!" Natural products are the way to go, as a lot of fake tan includes nasty chemicals including parabens, alcohol, preservatives and fragrances. Three Warriors products are certified toxic-free and organic, made with locally sourced Australian ingredients. As there isn’t much research done into the long-term effects of conventional fake-tan we believe opting for the natural option is the way to go for healthy, glowing skin.

7. NUTRA ORGANICS SUN MIST

After sun-care is just as important and before! Nutra's new After Sun Mist is a head of the game in the market, with micro collagen peptides that help prevent pigmentation, repair skin collagen and calm redness. The sun is one of the biggest threats to damaging skin collagen and accelerating the signs of ageing, but this can be minimised with products that are ultra-hydrating, provide antioxidant protection and promote skin healing like this one.

There we have it! Our current switches you can make in your routine that are better for you and the environment for beautiful glowing skin.  

Lovers, untameher.
