Well, we survived 2021 – just! Now most of us are enjoying a little summer break or making plans for one in the next few weeks.
When I packed for our 2 week annual beach holiday it had to be simple and light-weight. I don’t have the space nor the time to spend hours on my skin this trip, and so I made sure to only include products which will keep my skin in top shape, quick smart.
Want to know what I packed? Here’s a peak into my travel bag and my top skincare picks for healthy summer skin:
Having spent the last few days at the beach with the family, applying layers of zinc-based sunscreen to prevent sunburn and all that comes with excessive sun exposure, I’ve been using my 2 in 1 Exfoliant + Mask every 2nd day to keep my skin clear and my pores unblocked. It’s so refreshing on skin and leaves it feeling silky soft and glowing. LOVE having clean, make-up free skin all summer long.
The next product to hit my skin at the end of the summer’s day is my Biome Spritz. Rich in native Kakadu plum, nature’s most potent source of Vitamin C, this refreshing spritz boosts your skin cells’ defence against free radicals (caused by too much sun, stress, pollution etc.), which reduces oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is bad because it leads to collagen and hyaluronic acid break down, which is what causes wrinkles and dry skin. Fortunately, Vitamin C also stimulates collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis. So not only are you stopping the breakdown of these key skin components with all those antioxidants, but you’re making more. Summing up, regularly spritzing with our Ultimate Biome Spritz should leave your skin more radiant, more hydrated and a tad less crinkly.
I seriously wish I could bathe in this stuff over summer! Nothing restores my skin, re-hydrates it and keeps it looking fresh better than our Repair Face Serum. With a special blend of certified organic ingredients, our serum promotes skin repair and renewal, and rapidly sinks into the skin providing a hydrating glow. It also quickly soothes sun damage and helps to keep my pigmentation in check. It’s no wonder why we frequently get 5-star reviews for this beauty for everything from dry skin to scars.
Not forgetting the body, our Ultimate SOS Balm is what the rest of my skin gets lathered in. At the end of the day this balm can save your skin in all kinds of ways. Not only can you use it as an all over body moisturiser, on any skin flare ups (eczema, dermatitis, rosacea), but it’s great for bites, sun damaged skin and pigmentation. It’s essential on my body after a long day at the beach when my skin is uber dehydrated. I also slather my kids in it after a little too much sun or when they get inundated by mozzies. This is most certainly one product you will never see me without this summer.
Hope you can take some well-earned time off this summer and enjoy a little beach time too.

The skin on our bodies is often neglected as we tend to focus on our face and figure our bodies will just look after themselves. Big mistake!
Because our skin is our largest organ and most of what we put on it gets absorbed, choosing high-quality products for the body is so very important. They need to be 100% natural and as organic as possible, to avoid causing skin reactions, disrupting our hormones, and not adding to the toxin burden on our liver.
There are also some simple things you can do to look after your body that will reduce dryness, stop eczema from flaring up and keep it glowing.
