The holiday period is often accompanied by a great deal of travel, socialising and sun exposure that can have a detrimental effect on your skin if you are not diligent in your skincare rituals. However, by taking a few key measures you can keep your skin glowing throughout the Christmas break.

For those who plan on flying during the holidays, one of the most commonly experienced travel-related skin issues is dehydration. Symptoms of dehydrated skin are tightness, itchiness, diffused redness and roughness. Hydrated skin appears plumper, filling out fine lines and wrinkles and has a natural radiant glow.

Air travel is particularly harsh on skin. The high altitudes and recirculated air cause the skin’s acid mantle to quickly become depleted of moisture, compromising the skins ability of protecting itself against the environment.

Our Discovery Sets are the perfect luxury travel essentials, for those seeking to pack light without compromising on essential beauty. Each regime provides a three-step skincare routine consisting of a cleanser, serum of choice and moisturiser that will help you effortlessly maintain radiant skin while on the go.

Along with this, the holiday season tends to put all of our social calendars into overdrive, which often comes hand in hand with heavy makeup that can result in blocked pores and breakouts. However, this can be easily avoided by effectively cleansing your skin each morning and night to remove make up and all potentially irritating particles that will deposit into the skin’s pores.

Our Ecdydis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanse will gently exfoliate and cleanse away surface impurities and makeup for a clear, radiant appearance. Containing alpha-hydroxy fruit acids and fermented plant enzymes, this luxurious cream cleanser will preserve moisture and replenish skin, while promoting cellular turnover for a smoother, dewy and brighter complexion.

Exposure to Australia’s unique environment and high levels of UV radiation is the most recognised contributor to aging. UV exposure accelerates a breakdown in collagen structures, which can result in the emergence of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and oversized pores. In order to ensure your skin is fully protected, a light weight moisturiser rich in antioxidants, botanical lipids and plant polyphenols will reinforce the skin’s natural defence system to UV radiation will ensure a flawless appearance is maintained.

Our Metamorphis Multi-Vitamin Cream is formulated with an array of intelligent ingredients that support all the necessary natural building blocks for the skin to function and regenerate. Skin identical antioxidants such as retinol, vitamin c and b-vitamins, stimulate natural collagen production and most importantly prevent collagen degradation and work synergistically with phytonutrients of green tea, gotu kola and sea-kelp to benefit your skin’s natural matrix for increased vitality, resiliency and elasticity.

With the help of considered formulations and potent bio-actives, you can enjoy the holidays, without fretting about the potentially damaging effects that the festivities can have on your skin.
