1. Apply (and reapply)
Why: UV exposure is one of the leading causes of ageing and skin damage. Applying once is not enough, your sunscreen will only last for a few hours on the skin so don’t forget to take it with you in your bag.
How much: A teaspoon for the face. For the body, about as much as would fill a shot glass
How often: Re-apply every two hours. Tip: Stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can.

2. Moisturise, moisturise, moisture!
Why: The sun, salt and yummy cocktails can dry out our skin, so keeping it moisturised morning and night will prevent trans-epidermal water loss and lock in moisture.

3. Prevent and repair sun damage
How is pigmentation formed: When the skin isn’t protected with spf, UV rays stimulate the melanocytes in the skin. Over time this causes pigmentation spots of the surface of the skin, to protect itself.
What to do: Spf protection and our powerhouse Powerbright range will be your absolute best friend to prevent and repair sun damage.

4. Don’t forget to stay hydrated
Why: Higher temperatures and more time outdoors leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches and dizzy spells!
How: Keep a drink bottle with you wherever you go. Add some Inner Beauty Boost into your next cocktail or mocktail for a healthy boost.
5. Soothe over exposed skin
What: You forgot the sunscreen, didn’t apply enough, or got caught in a sunny spell.
What’s next: Unfortunately, the damage is done, but you don’t have to suffer in pain! Super-soothing botanicals and cooling gels can help prevent peeling and reduce redness and inflammation.
How: Apply cooling balms generously over-exposed skin, preferably at the first sight of a pink glow.
Prevent: One blistering sunburn doubles your risk of melanoma -- remember to get a yearly skin exam by a doctor and perform a self-examination once a month to detect early warning signs of carcinomas and malignant melanoma. Look for a new growth or any skin change.
