THE ESSENTIALS; TOP TEN MUST HAVE SKINCARE PRODUCTS TO TAKE YOU INTO 2013



Welcome to The Essentials – a ten part series showcasing the best of the newest skincare products that you have to add to your routines, bathroom cabinets and beauty kits. Written by make-up artist and ex-Vogue online beauty editor Anni Hall, get ready for smoother, plumper, brighter and overall better skin in 2013.

First up is sunscreen. If you live Down Under, heck – no matter where you live, sunscreen is essential. It’s the one anti-aging product that truly works. But don’t even think about slathering last year’s thick, sloppy sunscreen over that pretty face of yours, there’s a new, mind-blowing formula that’s just hit the market.

Anthelios by La Roche-Posay (one of those cult French pharmacy brands) has just hit our shores and it’s one that needs to be on the top of your beach bag. Why so mind-blowing? Well thanks to our harsh sun Australia has terribly high sunscreen standards and this sunscreen is the first SPF50+ that has been given two thumbs up. Also, a new legislation is making sunscreens up the the amount of UVA protection (that’s for rays that age the skin) and Anthelios contains the very hi-tech, science-y sounding Mexoryl SX (which is a UVA protection filter that defends skin like no other). That plus the equivalent for UVB (rays that burn) and you’ve got Australia’s strongest sunscreen. So sick of brown spots, little lines and that nasty thing called sunburn? Thought so, it’s time to stock up. Oh, and an extra perk is that it’s designed for sensitive skin so works wonderfully on all skin types.

    Do you think this product will not aggravate my skin sensitivity? I am looking for hypoallergenic beauty products till my browser landed me here.

    Thats very hard to say as ‘sensitive skin’ like ever skin is different to the next. I would definitely give it a try and see how it feels and reacts.
    good luck x MM
