After two seasons of dark and sultry polish colours, OPI’s spring/summer 2017 Fiji collection has arrived with a brilliant array of colours inspired by the island’s lush landscape. It features twelve new nail lacquers, with colours ranging from rich ocean blues, pops of flora and fauna-inspired shades, eye-catching sunset hues, and natural sandy-toned neutrals. “Visiting Fiji is on everyone’s wish list, thanks to the islands’ relaxed, friendly culture, fine cuisine, and colorful vistas – three things that inspired the twelve shades in this collection,” says OPI co-founder and brand ambassador, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. “Through the Fiji Collection, women around the globe can take a journey to this dream destination, wearing the colours of Fiji on fingers and toes this spring/summer season.”
Sun Safety 101
While many of you are planning a mid-March getaway, remember, sun protection is a must-have in every suitcase. Sunscreen goes beyond just preventing signs of premature aging, it is also vital to your health in fighting against free radicals that can cause skin cancer. But there’s more you can do. Did you know that an antioxidant like Vitamin C has photo-protective properties? Applying a topical Vitamin C serum will prevent sun damage by decreasing the chances of burning and calming skin irritation when exposed to UVA and UVB rays. By applying Vitamin C under a sunscreen, it has shown to improve sun protection, when compared to sunscreen alone.
TRY: Medico Active C20 or Active CE serums and Sun Bum sunscreens, which are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation (SCF).
