Weekend got us feeling like... 😎
Protecting my pale skin with SPF 1000 🔥☂️
Have you forgotten to slip, slop, slap today? One contributing factor to ageing is sun damage! Protect your skin even during the coldest months with our Ultimate UV DEFENCE sunscreen - Your skin will thank you for it! You may think you don't need it, since the sun is hiding right? But those nasty UV rays still cause damage, even if you don't see it now - you will see it further down the track!
Does your lunch break look like this?

We've been talking a lot about skin health in our 10 Day Glow Challenge. I've learned some new things especially regarding how to read what my skin is telling me about my body! Another thing that has been very interesting is the discussion on vitamin D and skin exposure. It seems not only Australians, despite the amount of sun we do have, but a big percentage of the world, are vitamin D deficient. There is actually truth in people covering up too much and being too vigilant in their sun protection! Shocker, I know! As a particularly fair skinned person, I am always lathering on sun cream and covering up with long sleeves and hats in the summer. I have recently gone for my 6 monthly check up and have found out that I am severely deficient in vitamin D, due to doing this (which is not normal coming to the end of summer). I've never really thought about the fact that I should be allowing at least 5 - 10 minutes of sun-cream-free skin in the sun 2 - 3 times a week! Some of the benefits of vitamin D are: it is a natural anti inflammatory, helps maintain the health of bones and teeth, supports the immune system, brain, and nervous system, support lung function and cardiovascular and can even help defend against cancer cells! Vitamin D can also be found in foods such as fatty fish, oils, skim milk, eggs, chicken & mushrooms but the best source is from the sunlight! I am taking vitamin D supplements currently to give me a boost in the right direction and spending some more time out in the sun by doctors advice. I would love you all to take note of how you are feeling and remember vitamin D is actually a hormone not a vitamin. If you are feeling a lack of energy, bone pain, or even feeling more down than usual, make sure to tick the vitamin D box in your testing! You may be surprised at how much of a difference getting your vitamin D levels up can make!

😎slide on #sunnies
😎With one of the highest rates of #skincancer
in the world it was paramount the government institutions raise awareness to the public on #sunsafety
🤠It initially started with just #slipslopslap
and then seek and slide were added in recent years. This was one of the most successful public awareness campaigns for skincancer.
Something simple that I hope my future self will be #grateful
