Healthy Skin in Summer

Slip, Slop, Slap

With Australia having the highest rate of skin cancer in the world the importance of protecting your skin from the sun with a shirt, sunscreen and hat cannot be underestimated.


Drinking plenty of water is very important so as to detoxify and keep the skin properly hydrated.

The skin should also be moisturised externally with a quality natural moisturiser like the McArthur Skincare Complete Skincare Cream and Hydrating Face Cream of course!

Exfoliate Regularly

Sun, sand, sunscreen and sweat can boost the number of dead skin cells on the face and body which makes exfoliating the skin a necessity.

Exfoliate at least twice per week using a natural cleanser like the McArthur Skincare’s Complete Skincare Soap.

Eat the Right Foods

While sunscreen is a necessity, nature also provides us with a range of foods that help protect our skin against the dangers of UV radiation. See below for some of the best sources of antioxidants that will help protect your skin this summer:

+ Pawpaw, carrots, apricots, mango and sweet potato – Contain carotenoids that reduce the detrimental effects of UVB radiation

+ Pawpaw, watermelon, pink grapefruit and tomato – High in lycopene which is a red carotenoid that protects the skin against sunburn and skin cancer

+ Cocoa (dark chocolate) – Contains phenols and catechins which protect our skin from sunburn and skin cancer

+ Green and black teas – Rich in polyphenols which offer excellent protection against free radical exposure that is responsible for the majority of skin aging

+ Broccoli – Contains sulphoraphane which helps body cells protect themselves against sun damage
