A great, natural way to keep your skin hydrated and nourished all day long, Bali Body is a 100 per cent natural tanning oil containing a natural SPF giving your skin a deep golden glow.

Made from five organic and raw ingredients, Bali Body does not sit on your skin like the average chemically enhanced tanning oils, instead it penetrates deep below the surface leaving your skin feeling smooth and emitting a natural glow. Used as a hydrating night time mask, everyday moisturiser or when you get out of the surf, Bali Body is the perfect addition to your daily skin ritual.
Bali Body is completely raw, organic and vegan friendly. With the combination of organic oils that assist in the reduction of cellulite, eczema, psoriasis and dry skin, Bali Body is essentially a skin food.
B A L I – B O D Y – I N S I D E – A N D – O U T
Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut Oil)

+ Nourishes Skin, Coconut oil takes care of this aspect due to the presence of medium chain fatty acids like Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Lauric Acid and Vitamin-E

+ Protects skin, The stable, saturated fats of coconut oil form a protective layer over the skin, extensively cutting down damage due to over exposure to the sun

+ Fights infections, Thanks to the antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties of fatty acids like Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Caproic Acid, Myristic Acid and Lauric Acid present in Coconut Oil, your skin is guarded against infections

+ Retains Moisture, The stable saturated fats reduce the loss of moisture from the skin considerably by forming nourishing layer on the skin

+ Soothes and Conditions the Skin, Coconut oil soothes skin in case of possible inflammation resulting from strong sun, dust, allergenic particles, or other environmental factors. It also keeps skin smooth and gives it a shiny glow

+ Tones and tightens, The properties in coconut oil can assist in reducing cellulite and premature ageing, keeping your skin tight and toned

 

Olea Europaea (Olive Oil)

+ Olive oil is packed with antioxidants, the body’s built-in defence against free radicals.

Free radicals lead to a loss of collagen and elastin, two things in your skin that keep you looking young. This tells us that olive oil is a great natural weapon in the battle against the effects of premature aging.

 

Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed oil

+ Grape Seed oil is just what it sounds like – it is the oil extracted from seeds of grapes. Though the extraction process for these oils sounds complicated, what they do for your skin is very simple: Grape seed oil can treat acne, reduce dark under-eye circles, moisturize and tighten your skin.

 

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) oil

+ Jojoba oil has many organic and mineral properties, making it the perfect raw skin food to help you keep that natural glow. It helps to fight facial lines, skin scarring and fatty tissue. It is also amazing in challenging skin circumstances like acne, eczema and psoriasis.

+ Jojoba oil relieves aggravated skin and improves the natural development of collagen. (Yes babes, we said collagen). It also offers efficient protection towards the sun and fights the symptoms of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.

 

Aqua (water)

+ Water is essential to maintain the optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells. It replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines.

+ Aqua keeps the skin well hydrated and glistening, thereby, enhancing that golden glow.

Australian swimwear label Zimmermann is continuing its global reign with the release of the label’s Resort Swim 2015 campaign.

Setting sail amongst the waters of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the campaign captures the sleek sophistication and relaxed sensuality of the collection. Fashion photographer Darren McDonald shot the collection, in which his images encapsulated the modern bohemian spirit of the Zimmermann woman perfectly.

The new collection is heavily influenced by the 70s, with an elegant yet easy to wear aesthetic. The designs might on first glance seem playful and carefree, yet in true Zimmermann style, they are intricately detailed with corseted structure, sheer mesh panelling and custom trimmings. With collections like these, it’s not hard to see why Zimmermann remains front and centre on the global swimwear scale.

With only two days into Spring, would it be wrong for us to start thinking about Summer already? The Pink LouLou collection rightfully titled Australian Summer, will be releasing in October and has us already excited for the hot summer months.

Imagine tropical fruits, sea shells, and the emotions evoked from sand sinking in between your toes on a hot summers day (yes please!). Pink LouLou is a brand celebrating memorable keepsakes, with a little bit of Australiana to suit everyone.
Love where you are from and where you have been. – Designer, Skye Campbell.
Check out some of the gorgeous pieces from the Australian Summer collection and be transported to a summers day filled with coconut scents and salty seas.
