To help you look your very best, here are our Best Beauty Tips for

Melbourne Cup!

Hoping for a SUNNY day at the Melbourne Cup? Just remember, the SUN is NOT your skin’s best friend.

#1 of our Best Beauty Tips for Melbourne Cup Day is:

Don’t TRASH your skin at events.

Avoid Sunburn. Be sure you wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water.

  • Nothing ages your skin faster than a sunburn or chronic sun exposure.
  • It can even cause an increased risk of skin cancer.
  • So wearing sun protection is a no-brainer.

But it’s amazing how, just a few champagnes later, you’ll forget to re-apply your sunscreen!

  • We recommend physical-based sun block like Sun Juice.
  • Apply every 2 to 3 hours, or more frequently if needed.
  • Bring your own large, non-breakable mirror in your bag.

Then there’s getting enough water – which is also easy to forget to do when you’re caught up in the heat of the moment.

#2 of our Best Beauty Tip for Melbourne Cup Day is:


H2O – Drink Water Between Alcohol Based Drinks – and STOP drinking alcohol before you start to get too tipsy

If you stay hydrated (that means drinking 1 to 2 glasses of water between every alcoholic beverage), your SKIN – and your BODY – will thank you the next day.

  • Staying HYDRATED also means you’ll need to visit the facilities on a regular basis.
  • This is the time to remember to reapply your sunscreen at the races.
  • It’s also a good time to check in with yourself (or with your friends) to be sure you’re not over-imbibing sun and alcohol don’t mix very well.

So, if you’re going to be in an area where the LOOS are not exactly upscale, BRING your own hand-held MIRROR (ideally a non-breakable one).

So WEAR Sun Protection (Cosmeceutical brands) and reapply regularly, drink plenty of H2O between other drinks, wear a WIDE BRIMMED HAT & EYE PROTECTION when you’re outside.

#3 of our Best Beauty Tips for Melbourne Cup Day is something you may have NOT thought of about…

Alcohol and Sun Exposure

  • Alcohol affects your level of Vitamin A in your skin; so be sure to put a good Vitamin A cream on at night. Try Environ’s Vitamin A Step-up.
  • Again – be sure you DO get adequate water intake.
  • Your skin needs HYDRATION (every second drink should be a large glass of water); and drink more water before you go to bed.
  • Hyaluronic serum with Vitamin B is also helpful to hydrate the skin after long days in the sun try Germanie de Capuccini HydraForce Hyaluronic Serum.
Just remember your skin and body will thank you for it.
