The silly season is well and truly in full swing. Even Covid has only stopped a small portion of Australia from getting together. Most of us are lucky enough to have no cases and can thankfully visit our family and friends.

But with the silly season, enviably comes overindulging in food, alcohol, sun and even more food! (I do love me some caramel tart over Christmas!)

So, looking after your skin is vital at this time, to prevent damage and the dreaded post-holiday breakouts.
Simply, follow our top five tips and your skin will not disappoint you this season, allowing you to concentrate on making memories with loved ones.

1. Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate


This is our absolute, all-time, no doubt about it best tip for healthy, glowing skin. Why? Well, it's simple really. When you're body is hydrated, your skin can function to its full ability. Which means maintaining elasticity, skin tone and signs of premature ageing.

2. Routine Consistency


It's a crazy busy time. We get it. Trust us. But if you want to reap the benefits of beautiful and glowing skin, then you need to put a little time in. That's why we love our unique two-step routine. Just two steps in the AM and two in the PM.

3. Remove your makeup before bed


Say it with me - "I will not go to bed with makeup on!" The reason we feel so strongly? You see your skin does most of its repair at night and if your face is already clogged with makeup it has to work that much harder. And why make things harder than they need to be?

4. Stress Less


We know it's way easier said than done. But your skin will love you long time if you can keep your stress in check. When you're stressed your body releases an excess of the hormone called Cortisol. This then in turn leads to excess production of oil from your glands. And excess oil, unfortunately, leads to blocked pores and acne.

5. Mask yourself!


Find a good multi-purpose face mask that exfoliates, restores and hydrates and you'll be all set in less than twenty minutes. We may be biased but we love our Aussie Pink Clay Mask. Packed with our hero Kakadu Plum and Aussie Clay ingredients, this mask is formulated to revitalise, hydrate and will leave you with silky smooth, dewy skin.
