The Central Coast is one of the most amazing places to be over the summer months.

With incredible beaches, divine alfresco eateries and scenic spots for outdoor activities, there is no doubt that December to February is the most popular time to get outside and enjoy all that the area has to offer.

Sunshine is good for the soul, and getting the right amount can have lots of mood lifting benefits.

However, during the hot Aussie summer months, most people are prone to over exposure, resulting in increased dryness and dehydration. It is something that skincare professional Vita Catanzariti of Dolce Vita Skin sees a lot of at her Erina clinic.

“Around 80 per cent of the guests we see have skin pigmentation issues like sunspots and sun damage. We have a beautiful lifestyle here on the Central Coast, but along with that comes irregularity when it comes to skin,” she said.

“My advice, which is paramount, is to wear 30-50 per cent SPF rain, hail or shine.

“On top of that, I can help my clients develop a tailored treatment plan that includes diet, lifestyle and what we use on the skin. Antioxidants are really important. Considering all these things and putting a plan into place, you can truly reverse the signs of aging.”

One of the luminaries of the skincare world, Vita is a highly renowned skincare professional, whose leading treatments and superior results have earned her the name; the ‘Skin Whisperer’.
