With Melbourne’s colourful spring Racing carnival fading into the rear vision mirror, we turn our attention to the summer months and party season. Exposure to the sun and additional alcohol intake (spritz season, anyone?) are part and parcel of the most wonderful time of the year, but they can take a toll on our skin. Read on for our top tips to keep you in tip top condition throughout December and beyond!
ENRICH Clinic is home to a broad range of advanced lasers and treatments for various skin concerns. Led by Dr Michael Rich, our team of experienced, well-qualified doctors and nurses are here to take care of your every skin care need.

Keep your face out of direct sunlight and accessorise with sweeping broad brim hats and oversized sunglasses to protect the delicate skin on your face and around the eyes. Not just a fashion accessory, these skin cover-ups will guard against harmful UVA and UVB rays. You should also be incorporating a good quality, high strength physical sunscreen into your regime to further protect your skin against the elements. Don’t forget to reapply throughout the day and always 50 plus.
Up your water intake – hydration station
Skin cells thrive on hydration. Hydration is the basis of healthy skin, with every cell in the body relying heavily on water to function well. Hydrated skin cells are fuller, preventing the tendency for dehydrated skin to appear wrinkled and dull. Alcohol can leave you looking and feeling dehydrated. Consider the rule of thumb of two glasses of water for every standard drink you consume to keep you looking and feeling fresh.
You could also double down on the hydration with one of our much-loved Hydroactive Facial to keep your skin plump, bouncy and infused with skin loving nutrients. Performed in just half an hour, it’s the best investment you’ll make for summer and beyond. Your skin will thank you!
