Your skin problems solved

I’ve just turned 30 and my skin looks as tired as I feel!

Reach for a gentle, but powerful acid-free cream like Dermalogica Power Rich ($275 for 35+ day treatments). Used on younger skin, Power Rich nourishes and helps keep skin firm before any obvious lines and wrinkles appear. Formulated with Red Seaweed, Rice Extracts, Kukui Nut and Licorice plus heaps of vitamins and other goodies to help fight the war against wrinkles. Available from Dermalogica skin care centres – 1800 659 118

I’ve got a spot on my face that looks like Mt Kosciusko

Not a good look for the party season, but don’t fret. And don’t pick. Instead apply a natural, calming blemish treatment, like Nuskin’s Epoch Blemish Treatment ($18.00) formulated with natural extracts like Job’s Tears, Yarrow, Chamomile and Burrdock. Comforting and clearing. From NuSkin
