It seems like only last week I was madly organising myself for my summer holiday – waxing, bleaching, primping – and now I’m already slathering on the treatments to repair my dry skin and frizzy hair.

Turn to page 24 for our Summer Skin SOS article, which showcases our fave products to help get our skin back into tip-top condition. And don’t even mention my hair! The hints in Post-summer Hair Repair on page 48 will help tame the unruliness and frizz that days at the pool or beach have fostered.

@cosbeauty KKW BEAUTY’S GLAM BIBLE After launching KKW Beauty in 2017, Kim Kardashian West has become a formidable force within the beauty industry. Her first product, a contouring and highlight kit, sold out in just under three hours, and each new rollout still generates the same buzz. For the Glam Bible, Kardashia West wanted to include everything except skin products such as concealer. She wanted it all to be very universal and chose highlighters and blush colors that could work with all skin tones, along with two different lip colours, lip liner, lashes, mascara, eyeliner, and a six-pan eyeshadow palette.

out damned spot

Developed by mesoestetic® and distributed in Australia by Advanced Cosmeceuticals, cosmelan® is a one-off treatment that not only helps visibly reduce dark spots, it also restores radiance and luminosity to the skin while equalising skin tone.

Melasma is a common skin problem that can cause brown, blotchy patches of discoloured skin to appear, usually across the face, and is exacerbated by exposure to the sun. Although it affects such a high proportion of Australians, especially women, it is extremely difficult to treat.

skin that glows

Effected by the lifestyle we lead, the foods we eat, the products we use and the vitamins we consume, our skin, and the way it ages, is an amazingly complex phenomenon. External factors work alongside genetics, ethnicity and other intrinsic processes to map our path to skin ageing. And while there is little we can do to halt the hands of time from leaving their mark on our skin, there is plenty we can do to limit the damage being done by the choices we make on a day-to-day basis. Spanning from the active cells of the dermis to the dead cells of the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis), the skin serves to protect the body and acts as an exchange system for water and waste. Skin cells…

Modern skincare products are formulated with potent active ingredients to work magic on your complexion. While selecting the products to include in your beauty arsenal, there are many important ingredients to look for.

They are, first and foremost, products to help prevent extrinsic ageing of the skin. Ensure any sunscreen has physical and chemical blockers plus antioxidants. While not perfect, these sun care products are the best we have at the moment. 2. ANTIOXIDANTS Antioxidants are nature’s magic bullets, protecting our bodies against the chemical reaction responsible for the free radicals that are one of the key mechanisms in ageing. Free radicals are by-products of normal cell activity but they also…
