Bad habit: Not re-applying sunscreen
Good habit: It’s simply the best anti-ageing advice we can give you, so get adopt the habit of topping up throughout the day or set an alarm on your smartphone as a reminder. One shot glass is needed to cover your body. We love: Natural Instinct Invisible Natural Sunscreen, $15.95 (100g).
Bad habit: Brushing wet hair
Good habit: Young or old, hair is more fragile when it’s wet and if you brush it will create frizz and breakage. Use a comb or a brush designed to be used on wet or dry locks.
