Summer in Australia devastating to the skin.
The sun is always so unbearably intense that the risk of sun damage is high. Do you know that two out of three Australians will have skin cancer by the time they're seventy years old? And another 750,000 Australians get a non-melanoma every year?
So yeah, you could say that being smart about your summer glow is an important thing to do not just in Australia, but worldwide.
We all want that glistening summer tan all year long, but risking yourself to the possibility of skin cancer is just plain stupid. That's why I'm happy that Portobello Public Relations in Sydney sent me this amazing product haul full of summer ready products from their clients!
First off, there is the coveted BondiSands! I was ecstatic to get that summer tan without having to lay outside with all the damaging UV rays. Having healthy, glowing skin is important to me as it makes me feel like I exude healthy vibes!
As a Filipino, I am naturally fairly tan, but my days inside working, and reluctance to die by a skin melanoma have kept me on the lighter side. But with my summer body ready, I needed these great products to get that glow up!
Next up was Transformulas Miracle Daily Glycol Priming Cleanser. I wear makeup pretty much every day, so I am susceptible to fine lines, and ageing so having a great skincare routine is essential. Even without makeup, did you know that around 90% of wrinkles are caused by sun damage? So even if you are a bare faced beauty, or if you try get that sun tan to look younger the sun can still make you age like crazy...
I love that I get to use the Transformulas Miracle Daily Glycol Priming Cleanser as it's a gentle foaming cleanser which contains glycol acid. Glycol acid stimulates new growth of skin and collagen breaking down the bond of dead skin, and also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, and wrinkles. So bye bye skin damage!
Last on my list is the Transformulas Marine Miracle Eye Cream for the most sensitive arena of skin - our eyes.
The thin layer of skin around eyes are most susceptible to sun damage, with some people more predisposed to having more visible ageing in this area. Not only does this area of skin have to deal with sun damage, it also is under the strain of having 22 muscles continuously moving in that area for us to blink all damn day!
This eye cream contains powerful natural ingredients like Alavine that stimulates fibroblasts to improve the appearance of creping and thinning skin. Sun damage, ageing, and other causes are reversed as the Transformulas Marine Miracle Eye Cream reduces dark circles, eye puffiness, wrinkles,and, fine lines with quick, visible results.
