Of course, getting a little bit of sunshine a day on your skin is healthy, but if you don’t protect against the harmful UV rays whilst enoying your daily dose of vitamin D, the results can be blotchy skin, deep pigmentation under the skin (which may surface later on) and premature age spots – yikes!

This cream based formulation, will lighten and brighten overall skin appearance, and provide a nice even skin tone.

Trend: Certified organic Mukti Antioxidant Facial Serum 30ml (RRP: $66.95)

This serum is a game changer for all skin types, even sensitive ones. Another lightweight product that after only a few days, provides the face with a dewy glow and a hydrated complexion.
