She’s a former Miss World Australia, who is known for her flawless complexion, and now Erin Holland has shared her top tips for keeping your skin looking youthful as summer hits.
Erin grew up in tropical North is an avid sun safety supporter.
The issue is close to her heart, as both her parents experienced melanoma scares.
And with a recent study revealing that 73 per cent of Australian women don’t wear sunscreen every day – because it feels too greasy on their skin – Erin shared her top tips for keeping those sunspots at bay.
‘It’s vital to protect your skin from damaging UV rays as even on overcast days we're at risk of sun damage, Erin tells New Idea.
‘I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Fluid under my make-up every day as part of my morning beauty routine.
‘The sunscreen combines skin and sun care, meaning my skin isn't left feeling oily or greasy.’
It may sound simple but Erin is also an advocate of a faux glow.
‘That way you can get the tan you want without the damaging UV exposure,’ she says.
Staying hydrated is vital, according to Erin.
‘The more water you drink the better,’ she says. ‘Aim for 1.5 litres a day to avoid your skin and body getting dehydrated.’
Moisturising your skin regularly is also important, she says.
‘Make sure you moisturise morning and night,’ she says, recommending a gel formula that provides long lasting, intense moisture.
Finally, Erin suggests looking to your diet to get the best out of your skin.
‘You can only look good on the outside if you feel good and are taking care of the inside,’ she says.
‘Make sure you add plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet to glow from the inside out!’
