5 Skin Survival Tips for Changing Climate

5 Skin Survival Tips for Changing Climate

As we’re entering summer weather season (hooray!) – it’s time to prepare for the sudden changes to your skin as the temperature rises. It’s time to put your best face forward with 5 tips for skin survival during the season change.

1. Don’t forget SPF

As we move from Spring to Summer we need to change our skincare routines a bit. Now is the time to up your sun protection game. Protect your skin from the sun and find a good day moisturising cream that has a minimum SPF15 and a good UVA protection. Use this as a base daily before applying your makeup and then reapply during the day if out and about for lengths of time. Emu oil can add another layer of sun protection for your skin, so make sure you apply a layer of Day Crème on top of sunscreen on your skin. (Note: Emu oil is not a substitute for sunscreen).

2. Use antioxidant-rich creams at night

Before bed, gently cleanse your skin without stripping it and drying it further with harsh chemicals. Then, apply a rich night moisturising repair cream. Night time is the best time to repair the skin. Look for a fast absorbing, nutrient enriched formula that includes anti-oxidant ingredients. Our Emu Spirit Night Crème helps to fight signs of ageing, combat pigmentation and promote skin cell renewal while you rest. Ingredients include Vitamin E oil, rosehip fruit oil, grapefruit seed extract and aloe vera extract.

3. Boost your skin cream with emu oil

After cleansing at night, you can add a few drops of a rich nourishing emu oil to your night cream for an extra boost. You can either use Emu Spirit Oil of Emu, or you can even break open an Emu Spirit Omega 360 capsule and apply the oil under your eyes.

4. Repair cracked or dry lips with Emu Oil

Prolonged exposure to the sun can make your lips cracked and dry. You can apply a small amount of emu oil over your lips to help treat them. Emu oil’s major power lies in its high levels of a compound known as Eicosanoids. Eicosanoids are a hormone-like compound that that exhibits many healing mechanisms. These compounds, including its strong anti-inflammatory compounds, encourages the individual cells to soften their outer cells, allowing nutrients in while flushing toxins out.

Sun exposure is the most common cause of skin damage and wrinkling. You can help to combat this by using emu oil-based skincare on your face and body. Emu oil also contains oleic acid that is a proven skin regenerator as well as an effective anti-wrinkle agent. Our Emu Spirit skincare kit contains a hand & body crème, day crème and night crème for a holistic beauty approach.

10 Anti-Inflammatory Foods to Keep You Healthy This Spring

10 Anti-Inflammatory Foods to Keep You Healthy This Spring

Spring is the perfect time to update your diet to include plenty of fresh and delicious foods. You can add them to your usual recipes for a dash of flavour and plenty of health benefits.

Here’s our Top 10 Picks for anti-inflammatory foods to keep you healthy this spring.

 

mint
You want to stay hydrated as the weather heats up. Add a sprig of fresh mint to your water for a refreshing flavour, or use it to top off your favourite fruit salads. Mint is a powerful herb with an antioxidant, which may help relieve spring allergy symptoms. The menthol in mint can also reduce congestion and soothe an upset stomach.

onion green onion
These add flavour to foods such as salads, soups and sautéed with other vegetables and lean meats. Onions contain polyphenols such as flavonoids that help prevent disease and boost our immune systems. They also have natural antihistamines to minimize spring allergy symptoms as well as anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.

 leafy greens
Warm weather is the perfect time for plenty of healthy salads. Try arugula and leafy greens such as red leaf and romaine lettuce. They are packed with fibre, chlorophyll, water and vitamins A and K to reduce inflammation, detoxify your body and hydrate it. Mix raw greens in a bowl with fresh vegetables, including spring onions, tomatoes and cucumbers. Pour balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil over the salad, which also has anti-inflammatory properties. Make a dinner salad by adding a few thin slices of grilled chicken for protein and croutons to include carbohydrates for a complete meal.

carrots
Carrots have vitamin A and other antioxidants to combat cancer and maintain healthy nails, skin and hair. Add carrots to anything from salads, soups, pasta sauces or steam them to serve as a side dish. Snack on raw carrots with calorie-free dip, salsa or hummus as a guilt-free treat.

tart cherries
Tart cherries are flavourful and may minimize pain from exercising and arthritis. According to a recent study, tart cherries have the highest anti-inflammatory content of any food. Add tart cherries to your low-fat yogurt or bowl of morning oatmeal.

beets
Beets add colour and health benefits to a variety of dishes. Eating beets can help lower your blood pressure, eliminate toxins and boost your stamina for a longer workout. Shave beats to add them to salads or roast them as a healthy side dish.


avocado
This Aussie smashed favourite is a great source of healthy unsaturated fat and antioxidants. The anti-inflammatory properties of avocados are so strong that they may actually offset less healthy food choices! The options are endless; smash it with feta on toast, add slices into a salad or make a healthy smoothie with frozen avocado, mango and coconut milk.


ginger
While ginger is often associated with winter, it is great all year round. It can minimize nausea and boosts antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity in your body. Put ginger in a smoothie or tea, or sprinkle ginger over salmon for a healthy meal with plenty of omega-3 fatty acids.

salmon
Speaking of salmon, this is another healthy food to include in your springtime recipes. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon, sardines and tuna can reduce inflammation in your body. Try to have at least 1-2 servings weekly. Serve it poached, roasted, grilled, pan-seared or baked.


emu oil emu spirit omega 369 essential fatty acids
Sick of salmon? Emu oil is packed full of Omega 3, 6 & 9 and essential fatty acid, which gives it such unique anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Boost your immune system and general health and wellbeing by incorporating emu oil into your daily life. You can take emu oil capsules or add a spoonful of emu oil to salad dressings or orange juice. You can even use the oil topically on your skin to treat conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
