Look for high protection SPF sunblock and reapply it every day, not just when at the beach. Caroline Parker, Head of Education for Dermalogica New Zealand says a sunscreen is the most important skin care products you will ever purchase. "Research has show that when UV rays penetrate our skin, there is skin reddening, DNA damage and a burst of free radicals is generated. These unstable molecules wreak havoc on the skin cells". The combination of free radicals an UV rays cause the sun induced changes such as pigmentation, wrinkling, actinic keratosis and skin cancer. To combat this, Caroline suggests using sunblocks, which are formulated with ingredients such as antioxidants that enhance skin health.

New Zealand Womans Weekly Press December 2012What is colostrum?
If you have breastfed then you'll know colostrum is the first milk you produce. It's packed with extra nutrients and antibodies that are vital for newborn baby. But why put it on your skin? Well it's bee hailed as a unique, natural anti-ager as it contains growth factors to help improve the thickness and elasticity of the skin. It's also a detoxifier and has anti-inflammatory powers to leave the skin softer, smoother and healthier. In our skincare it comes from cows rather than humans however.

Spring clean skin in readiness for summer 2009

images magazine 2009

Now that the depths of winter are hopefully behind us, it’s time to look in the mirror for a critical evaluation of our face, neck and décolletage.

A change of season brings a number of problems including dehydration, dull, lifeless skin and loss of firmness. Skin needs to be prepped and primed with a quick and easy exfoliation makeover!

All types of skin including dry, normal or even sensitive skin needs exfoliation.

The top layer of dead skin needs to be sloughed off to reveal the new skin cells underneath. For those suffering from clogged pores or breakouts, a fine polish is the perfect answer as they are very fine and act more as a skin buffer rather than a full-on, harsh scrub.

Winter Skin 2009

Just as it is important to prepare your skin for summer, it's even more essential to protect our face and body against the ravages of colder weather.

Dry skin is caused by the simple loss of hydration or the ability to retain it. In order to restore skin to its natural balance, you need to apply skin products with natural ingredients like olive oil, rosehip oil and squalene. In winter our skin is stressed and reacts with redness, irritation and hypersensitivity. Ignoring these symptoms could cause long term damage such as scarring and the appearance of signs of ageing. All skin types should look for humectants or emollients in skin care. Emollients such as shea butter, squalene and jojoba oil are particularly important as they not only moisturise and soften the skin but provide a protective layer on its surface.
