Last of the Summer Skin

01 Mar 2020

Why hello there Autumn! What a beautiful and long summer we have had and it seems to be trickling on. Lucky us!   With this gorgeous weather and abundance of sunshine comes summer stressed skin and this is the time to think about radiance, repairing and resetting your skin for the cooler months to come!


Did you know, exfoliating is one of those skincare steps that gets easily missed out but in my humble opinion, is one of the top 3 that shouldn’t be missed along with sun protection and night care.

Look for a gentle exfoliator of natural ingredients if possible that gentle polishes away dead skin, refining pores and revealing a more radiant skin.

Exfoliating also allows the skin to absorb serums and moisturisers better as opposed to sitting on top of a layer of dead skin.


Items available at Farmers & Life Pharmacy

1. Antipodes Reincarnation Facial Exfoliator $47.50
2. Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets Natural Action Exfoliator $86
3. Evolu Invigorating Body Scrub $35.99


I love me a good face mask. Think of this as an intense treat for your skin, taking you beyond daily hydration and protection.   Look for repairing properties that can boost summer slammed skin and signs of ageing (can I have a body sized bottle please?!)

And don’t forget your hair! Chlorine, salt water and sunshine can really take it’s toll on our hair so look for a mask that is formulated to work with your hair type giving you the level of repair it may need.


Items available at Farmers & Life Pharmacy or visit Rodney Wayne or Shampoo 'n' Things for expert advice for your hair.

There’s nothing like a new season to reconsider your skincare and makeup routine.

Visit our beauty stores to talk through your current skin concerns and what might be missing from your regime.

With every new season, comes new colour and this is the time to think about your Autumn look and what colours you might like to experiment with - even if it’s simply a new lipstick to top off your Autumn wardrobe with.   I personally can’t live without a radiance boosting primer, highlighters and colour pop lippy.


Items available at Farmers & Life Pharmacy.

7. Estee Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer $68
8.  Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter Available in Life Pharmacy - $58
9. Karen Murrell Lipstick Sugar Rush $31.99
