I love this time of year. Everyone is in party mode, the days are longer and there’s no shortage of outdoor activities to entertain us. Of course, summer time brings its own unique challenges: too much sun exposure, dry and scaly skin and the dreaded hair frizz; not to mention the annual ritual of braving the beach in a swimsuit. In the pages of this issue we offer you some solutions to manage the worst of these: Block it Out on page 38 explains how to choose an effective sunscreen; Love the Skin You’re In on page 28 showcases the best face and body products to keep your skin hydrated and smooth; and Hair We Go on page 70 has the best-of-the-best hair products for shiny and manageable locks.

Cocolux candles could quite possibly be the most beautiful candles in the world. The fact they are eco-friendly and made from only the best quality ingredients is just an added bonus. The name is derived from ‘coco’, which refers to coconut and ‘lux’, which is Latin for light. Inspired by nature, the brand’s luxury scented candles are made of earth-friendly coconut wax, at a time when the majority of candles still contain petroleum derived paraffin and unsustainably produced soy wax. In addition, Cocolux candles come in pure copper, brass and onyx vessels which can be fully recycled or upcycled once the wax has melted. Repurposed as containers for flower arrangements, pens or beauty brush holders, they become chic home décor collectibles to mix and match. From November 2018, Cocolux will further incentivise…

love the skin you’re in

Our skin is the largest organ of the body and is important for protecting us from microbes and the elements, helping to regulate our body temperature, and permitting the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. It consists of two main layers, the dermis and epidermis, and it varies in thickness and the number of hair follicles, sebaceous glands and sweat glands in different areas of the body. If our skin isn’t functioning properly, neither are we. These specialised products are some of the best on the market for ensuring the skin of our face and our bodies is in tip-top condition.…

pore obsessed? play it down

If you’re obsessed with the size of your pores, then you’re not alone. According to a survey of nearly 2,000 participants in the US, 45 per cent of women would change the size of their pores if they could, and almost a third are more worried about pore size than wrinkles. There’s even a name for this preoccupation with pore size - ‘porexia’! There are actually two types of pores in our skin – sweat pores and oil pores. Sweat glands are very small, while oil pores are actually hair follicles. Each hair follicle contains a sebaceous gland that produces oil (sebum), and these are the pores that are more obvious and can become blocked – the culprits of our obsession with our complexions. On average, we have about five million pores…

block it out

With Australia’s warm and sunny climate, many of us are intrinsically drawn to lying in the sun – but be warned. According to the Department of Health and Ageing, approximately two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 70. One of the best ways to protect yourself against the sun’s harmful rays is by using a sunscreen. But it’s important to know the differences in how they work, in order to choose the best option for your skin. ORGANIC VS INORGANIC SUNSCREENS Inorganic sunscreens, also known as ‘mineral’ or ‘physical’ sunscreens, work by reflecting or scattering UV rays and radiation. Some sunscreens combine both organic and inorganic components. Two types of inorganic sunscreens available are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Both provide broad-spectrum UVA and UVB…
