Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out: Top 5 Essential Skincare Products for Your First Australian Summer

Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out: Top 5 Essential Skincare Products for Your First Australian Summer

Summer in Australia isn’t just a season; it’s a vibrant celebration of sun, sand, and sea. The very first hot weekend in the summer season, usually around November, brings with it the promise of beaches, surfing, and poolside barbeques. 

Australia, in all its beauty, is also home to some of the most unique and often extreme climates in the world. Our summer temperatures range up to 50°Celsius in some places, and humidity intensifies around this time. With the blissful warmth comes the all-important task of protecting our skin while maintaining the Aussie ethos of natural beauty.

Australians believe that beauty is all about the naturally happy glow.

Surviving the Sizzle.

Surprisingly, snags on the ‘barbie’ won’t be the only thing sizzling in summertime. Unlike anywhere else in the world, Australia’s sunshine is stronger in summer than continents in the Northern Hemisphere. There is much higher exposure to UV radiation during the day, with exposure occurring long before the temperature begins to heat up, leading to a greater risk of all the health issues that arise from extreme sun exposure. This, coupled with Aussie’s love of the great outdoors, means higher rates of skin cancers, melanomas, heat stroke, and accelerated skin damage. It will come as no surprise that skin protection is a serious business in Australia.

Time to Shine

Aussies have adapted to these soaring temperatures and extreme UV sunlight in the warmer months by adapting skincare routines and beauty habits that protect, nourish, and cleanse. Take one look at some of Australia’s most beautiful celebrities, and you will see the gorgeous array of natural beauty that hails from the land down under. Margot Robbie, Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, and Cate Blanchet are excellent examples of the Aussie beauty ethos of freshness, brightness, and effervescent happiness that radiates the fun and excitement of the Australian coastline. Aussies have perfectly mastered the balance between sun-safe practices and natural beauty by prioritising skin health over damaging sun exposure.

Your first summer in Australia will be a celebration. You want to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and relaxed beach lifestyle whilst keeping safe from the sun and elements. You need products that you can rely on so that you can enjoy your Aussie adventure without having to worry about getting sunburnt or skin damage. To help you navigate your first beach season in health and style, here are 5 essential summer beach products that will keep you radiating vitality and natural beauty.
