Got a little too much sun this Summer? Yep, we've all been there. Australia's sun can be relentless, and it's all too easy to get busy enjoying its warmth only to find your skin paying the price later. The harsh reality is that prolonged sun exposure can wreak havoc on our skin. The powerful UV rays not only cause sunburn but also lead to long-term damage like premature ageing, wrinkles, and an increased risk of skin cancer.
Ok, so what can we do if we have got a little burnt or spent too long in the Summer sun? Let's explore the natural ingredients in Skin Rescue that make this powerhouse product the perfect remedy for sun-kissed skin.
Shea Butter A natural emollient, shea butter deeply moisturises and nourishes, promoting skin elasticity and preventing peeling. According to studies, shea butter may be helpful for treating first-degree (superficial) skin burns like sunburn. The anti-inflammatory properties of shea may lessen swelling and redness. By keeping moisture in the skin while it heals, its fatty acid components may also calm the skin. The vitamins A & E will also help support skin repair.
Calendula: Packed with anti-inflammatory and healing properties, this vibrant flower helps alleviate redness, discomfort and inflammation caused by excessive sun exposure. Its natural soothing effect is like a cool breeze on sun-kissed skin, providing relief and promoting the skin's recovery process.
Gotu Kola: Packed with triterpenoids, compounds known for their anti-inflammatory properties, Gotu Kola assists in calming irritated skin. Additionally, it stimulates collagen production, a key protein responsible for maintaining skin structure and elasticity. This collagen-boosting effect aids in promoting skin regeneration, reducing the appearance of scars and supporting the healing process. Gotu Kola's rich antioxidant content further contributes to shielding the skin from oxidative stress, leaving you with a revitalised and restored complexion.
Chickweed: With its cooling and anti-itch properties, chickweed provides instant relief to irritated skin. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, chickweed helps to calm the irritated skin and reduce itching caused by sun exposure. Additionally, chickweed is rich in vitamins and minerals, contributing to skin nourishment and promoting the healing process.

What customers are saying about Skin Rescue...
"I took my kiddos to the beach and even though we kept applying sunscreen, we all felt sunburnt and hot by the time we got home. I slathered everyone in Skin Rescue and by evening I could feel the heat left my skin and we were all feeling relief! I kept applying the next day whenever it felt dry and my skin didn't peel at all. It's a must have in my house!" - Annie
