Skin Care Tips During Your Summer Holidays

Skin Care Tips During Your Summer Holidays

Summer holidays here in Australia are in full swing and sun protection is usually on the minds of most of us during our long, hot summers. Skincare before, during and after the sun is essential and often one of the main objectives is preventing wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin.

Sun Protection To Prevent Sagging Skin

Sagging skin occurs when two areas of your skin, collagen and elastin, found in your dermis, begin to break down. Many things cause this breakdown including unhealthy diet, pollution, stress, smoking and UV exposure. Wearing sun protection is vital to prevent sagging skin. To help prevent sagging skin, among other things, we suggest committing to a natural skin care routine, especially natural skin care products containing Olive Squalene and Olive Leaf Extract. Olive Leaf Extract is a potent antioxidant, counteracts free radical damage and is also healing and nourishing for your skin.

Protecting Your Skin While Sun Bathing

Acai Berry Active Antioxidant Serum

Among other things, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen, which you've heard a thousand times. However, have you thought about adding a few drops of Olive Skin Serum or Acai Berry Antioxidant Serum to your sunscreen? By adding a few drops of either serum to your sunscreen, you will offer your skin a boost of antioxidants which may help protect your skin from free radical damage. Free radicals may have a damaging effect on your skin cells resulting in premature ageing, wrinkles and sagging skin. Eating and applying plenty of antioxidants is one of our top beauty tips for every day of the year, especially during summer.

Nourishing Health Tips

Nourishing Health Tips Summer

Your skin will love our morning and evening three minute, three-step skin care solution of cleansing, treating and hydrating. Additionally, try to nourish your skin from the inside with our top nourishing health tips.


Drink plenty of clean, purified water. Try to aim for 35 ml of water per kg of body weight. So, if you weigh 60 kilos, that's about 2 litres per day. If you drink a cup of coffee or other drink containing caffeine, add an extra glass of water to your daily intake, because caffeine is dehydrating.


A nutrient-dense juice is a fantastic way to give your body an instant blast of antioxidants, sustainable energy and immunity support. Beetroot, carrot, celery, parsley, lemon, grapefruit and apples are fantastic for clear skin, cleansing your liver, kidneys, and bowel.

Dump Refined Sugars

Refined white sugar may fuel many of our modern diseases, spike your blood sugar levels, tax your immune system, rob you of minerals, and flood your body with excess insulin. Enjoy some low fructose and antioxidant-packed blueberries, chia seeds and shredded coconut to curb any sweet cravings you may have.


Cleanse your skin, body, wardrobe, car, and office. Clear the clutter and hit the reset button so your skin, health, energy and self can shine.

Superfood Smoothies

Rocking a green superfood smoothie every day is our secret weapon for healthy skin. Loading up with super greens such as spirulina, chlorella and wheat grass will help your skin shine. Adding healthy fats like chia seeds, avocado or raw almond butter will help you feel satisfied for longer.

Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Pack your plate with anti-inflammatory foods and limit inflammatory foods such as wheat, gluten, dairy, meat, sugar, coffee, soda, energy drinks, alcohol, and processed foods. Turmeric is at the top of our anti-inflammatory shopping list. Juice up some fresh turmeric and enjoy a shot every day.


Commit to activities that help you lower your stress levels. Among other things try yoga, meditation, deep breathing and walking in nature.

Sleep Well

Without nourishing sleep, your skin and body cannot thoroughly cleanse, heal and repair itself.

Move Your Body

Your skin and lymph system requires you to move to enable it to pump toxins out of your body. Maybe try power walking, swimming, yoga or cycling for at least an hour most days. Include some weight-bearing exercises to help keep your bones healthy.

Smile, Laugh And Love More

Did you know that laughing is great for your immune system, and smiling calms your nervous system? Fall in love with your life and try to find the good in situations.
