ADORE YOUR BODY

It is so important to start your skincare regime young! In fact, I believe you’re never too young! Only around 10% – 20% of skin ageing is inevitable and is due to the passing of time and gravity, combined with hereditary factors. These types of skin changes include the deepening of expression lines, thinning skin, loss of elasticity and dryness.

External causes of skin ageing occur as a result of factors such as poor diet, sudden weight loss, stress, alcohol, smoking, pollution, and dry weather. However, the main cause of skin ageing is sun exposure. Remember there’s nothing healthy about a tan:

Elucent Whitening Day Moisturiser SPF 30+: The powerful moisturising agents work to give the skin a hydrating boost, while the broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen helps protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun and sun induced darkening. For best results, use in combination with Elucent Whitening Spot Corrector, Eye Cream and Elucent Whitening Night Moisturiser. http://www.egopharm.com/elucent-whitening-day-moisturiser/

Nak*d For You Facials: My top pick for quick facial care and elasticity maintainance would have to be this all organic, 100% natural face mask range which is hand made and cruelty free! Research the ingredients contained in your daily facial masks, clensers, sunscreens, exfoliants, toners and moisturiers… You may be surprised at the nasties you’ve been unknowingly subjecting your skin to – our skin absorbs everything. Using natural products will help you to achieve great results of healthy, glowing, blemish free skin. Ladies put your best face forward! http://www.nakdforyou.com

Summer Love Body Scrub: Effectively exfoliates and hydrates the skin with natural ingredients rich in antioxidants to stimulate circulation, keep an even skin tone and moisturize, leaving you with silky smooth, flawless skin. Why keep excess bulky moisturizers and exfoliating products when you can have the best of both worlds in one thin sachet? Simply apply to damp skin all over, scrub in circular motions applying more pressure in target areas and being mindful of sensitive areas such as your face and neck. The longer you leave it on the better, then rinse. Ingredients include coffee beans, pure rosehip oil, brown sugar, sea salt, lavender and cold pressed macadamia oil. As you can imagine, it smells incredible. Visit http://summerlove.com.au/

THE COLOR RUN GOLD COAST

Fun Runs are a great opportunity to connect with like-minded, active people in your area, to reach a personal best and achieve that post-workout glow.

Over the years I’ve enjoyed many different Fun Runs… yet something set apart my most recent experience.

On the last day of November, thousands gathered dressed in white for the 5km Colour Run challenge.

Overcoming mental and physical obstacles, participants passed through 4 colour zones of hot pink, orange, blue and yellow.

Vibrant explosions of coloured cornstarch painted the skies and blended effortlessly creating a thick haze!

It was a spectacular sight and certainly one I’m sure is a feature on many bucket lists.

If you missed the Gold Coast Colour Run, fear not! The happiest 5km on the planet on tour: http://thecolorrun.com.au/
