Want to read Sharon’s advice instead? Well now you can:

Summer in Australia can play havoc with your skin, so it’s really important that you’re using the right products to protect yourself from the elements. Sunscreen is a ‘must’ for every day even though most of us hate having to apply it.

That’s why the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist is so fantastic! It’s super lightweight and non-greasy, and comes in either SPF 30 or 50 (I go for 50 myself) and it’s non-comedogenic so it won’t block your pores. It’s really quick and easy to apply, you just spray it on a rub it in and you’re good to go.

And let’s not forget about protecting that delicate face of yours. Sun damage is the best way to speed up the ageing process so you should always be defending your visage against its harmful rays.

Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Face SPF50+ Sunscreen Liquid-Lotion gives a very high sun protection that’s stabilised with HELIOPLEX® technology. That means the sunscreen ingredients remain effective for longer. It’s an oil-free lightweight liquid lotion that doesn’t give that thick and greasy sunscreen feeling. And miraculously it sits really well under makeup so it’s perfect for everyday wear.

And if you know you’re going to be in the sun all day, don’t forget to wear a hat!

At the end of a day spent in the sun and surf, it’s always a good idea to replenish your skin with something rich and nourishing. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Moisturiser is a non-greasy glycerine-rich formula that penetrates even the driest, roughest skin, leaving it feeling super soft and comforted.

The lightweight lotion absorbs quickly restoring moisture lost throughout a day spent in the sun. And finally Summer time means we break out the sandals and thongs and occasionally walk barefoot so it’s a good idea to make sure your footsies are getting a bit of TLC too.

The Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Foot Cream hydrates even the most uncomfortably dry, rough feet and it’s especially great for dry heels and calluses. Use a small amount daily to restore skin’s softness and help keep dry patches from coming back

So enjoy your summer and remember to stay sun safe!
