EXYRA Delta UVA/B and blue light blocking sunglasses.
Leading an active and digital lifestyle puts me in direct contact with harmful UVA/B and blue light. Therefore, 100% protection against these nasties is a must.
Over the last couple of months, I’ve been rocking the EXYRA Delta sunglasses, which I wore my first time sailing. Out on the water, I knew they were working because the glare from the water produced a sea of blue light. It was alarming to witness how much blue light I was exposed to, but reassuring to see just how powerful EXYRA lenses are in action. Ever conscious about my eye health, I pack my Delta’s wherever I go. Plus, eye-wrinkles and age-related macular degeneration ain’t cute.
PRICE: Starting at $98.

The Daily Set is the perfect solution for first-time users or frequent travellers. Packed in small quantities you’ll get the Squalane Cleanser (50ml), Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (30ml) and Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA (30ml) all for $33… bananas right?
If you’re new to the clinical terminology, it’s okay you’re not alone. Grab your lab coat. It’s time for some science.
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally found in the skin. The molecule itself can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, precisely why cosmetic surgeons use it as a dermal filler to plump up sunken areas of the skin.
Do yourself a favour ditch the needle for 3-4 squirts of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5. This moisture-retaining anti-ageing serum hydrates and softens skin, especially fine lines. I apply my HA serum under my SPF+50 moisturiser during the day, and nightly along with The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA.
Did you know Squalane is found in shark livers, plants and your body?
Squalane is a real power player when it comes to combating eczema, redness and shielding your skin from free radicals which causes premature aging. Suitable for all skin types, it’s non-comedogenic and soap-free so you can use it daily, and it’s a godsend for makeup removal.
Rub the cleanser until it melts into your hands, then apply to your face and feel the goodness dissolve into your skin. Finally, a cleanser that doesn’t dry you out.
