Beauty Secrets with Beth Prentice!

I’m very lucky to live in Queensland Australia where every day is a good one. In fact the tourism slogan is Beautiful one day, perfect the next. However, all that glorious sunshine comes with its dangers. Skin cancer to name one of them. I’m also lucky enough to have a daughter that works in Dermatology. She insists that we all have annual skin checks and so far so good, we’ve got the all clear. 
But I still slip, slop, slap that sunscreen, even when I’m spending the day in front of the computer, because those damaging UV rays don’t only come from the sun. They also come from our computer screens and overhead lights. But I don’t use sunscreen just to  prevent skin cancers and melanoma, I also use it to prevent skin damage and ageing. A lot of sunscreens are no longer greasy and work perfectly under your foundation and over your moisturiser. The SPF in your make up and moisturiser isn’t enough to protect you, so always add the sunscreen before applying your foundation. The right product will have a mattifying effect so there’s no need to worry about looking too oily. 
So even if you live in a cooler climate, or spend most of your day indoors, it still should be a really important part of your beauty routine. I mean, if it’s that easy to slow down the effects of ageing, why wouldn’t you? And the upside is it could just save your life.

Fun Facts:

Did you know that you should apply sunscreen 20 minutes before going in the sun? It takes that long to sink in to your skin and do its job. 

Sunscreen has an expiry date as the active ingredients lose their potency.

When swimming or after two hours – reapply!

Don’t forget the scalp. If you can’t apply sunscreen – wear a hat!

Deathly Desire: Lizzie ~ Book 3 (The Westport Mysteries) 




When the past comes back to haunt you.

Lizzie is ready for a new adventure in her life, and it doesn’t take long for her to find it. After hitting the For Sale sign in to the ground of her house of mysteries, she is quickly charmed by another old house that is in desperate need of some love and attention. Only the house has a secret of its own. Who is its owner? Why is he so hard to find? And why does he own nine other deserted homes in Westport?

Keen to start this new chapter in her life, and with the help of her crazy family, her drop dead gorgeous boyfriend Riley, and the super sexy policeman that has just declared his undying love for her, Lizzie stumbles from one clue to the next. But when her past reappears and mixes with her future everything she has ever loved is at stake. 

Can Lizzie solve the forty-year-old mystery so that she and Riley can begin their next chapter together? Is her past really back to get her, or is there a copycat in Westport? Or will the star of her nightmares destroy everything before it even begins? 

Lizzie’s next adventure may not be as much fun as she had hoped.

  5. I had no idea that there are UV lights also coming from the computer and overhead lights. I do wear sunscreen outside- but not usually when I am indoors (unless my daily face cream has it in it- which it sometimes does). Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. It's surprising what gives off UV light. A lot of facecreams now have sunscreen in them, so you're probably protected to some degree :)

  6. I never thought that damaging rays come from computers. Wow. Maybe I should limit my time in front of the screen. Thanks for sharing!

    1. It is surprising isn't it. It comes from some overhead lighting also, so it's best to just wear sunscreen all the time :)

  9. There is skin cancer on both sides of my family so this is always something I look out for. I recently purchased zinc oxide to make my own sunscreen. It works like a charm with no strange odor that typically sunscreens have!

    1. Awesome! Zinc is so good to use. I use it when I know I'm spending the day in the sun and it works a charm. I just use the good ole stuff the surfers use :)
