Applying SPF 30+ protection daily (yes, 365 days of the year) is the single most important thing you can do to protect against premature ageing and skin cancer.
And if we’re going to stick to our daily pact, it’s important that we chose the right sunscreen – one that’s going to give us the right balance between comfort and protection.
Most of the year we need something light and non-greasy that allows skin to breathe – during the winter months, a lightweight SPF that acts as a make-up primer, while in summer we might opt for something heavier that offers better protection.
“The everyday sunscreens I recommend are really light and not water resistant, but on holiday and hot summer days I recommend you use something that is a bit thicker and water resistant,” says dermal therapist James Vivian.
The product we recommend for summer protection is Aspect Dry Touch, $25. It is a broad spectrum, high protection SPF 50 with Vitamin E that offers four-hour water resistance and is non-greasy and dry to the touch.

“What sets James Vivian Dermal Therapies apart from other professionals in the beauty industry is the incredible lengths the team will go to in caring for their customers.
In my initial consultation, I was prescribed products suited to my skin and my dermal therapist conducted research on the ingredients in my existing products to discover where I was going wrong. I’ve never encountered such initiative, ‘go the extra mile’ or genuine sincerity for customer care. It set the relationship and won my loyalty.”
"James Vivian Dermal Therapies has taken my skincare to the next level with access to the latest skin technology set in a beautiful calm environment. I appreciate the honesty, passion and the post consultancy care. James Vivian Dermal Therapies gets the results I look for and I recommend the clinic to everyone.”
“I am totally blown away by James Vivian Dermal Therapies’ Signature Dermal Therapy Treatment. Since the treatment, my skin became smoother by the day and it looks like new. It’s visibly clearer. I’m truly amazed.”
“I had only had one visit to James Vivian Dermal Therapies and then had a bad experience with another beautician who gave me a facial with terrible side effects. I contacted the clinic and the team were so supportive throughout the whole experience. Having professionals that I can trust is so important to me, especially professionals who are supportive and caring, which seems to be rare.”
“James Vivian Dermal Therapies offers a skin experience like no other. I can honestly say that I have never felt more confident in recommending the clinic’s expertise after seeing the incredible changes and rejuvenation in my own complexion. James Vivian Dermal Therapies is my go-to skin saviour and the results speak for themselves.”
“Due to my busy schedule as an actress, I’d never prioritised my skincare needs, and with so many products on the market I was confused about what to use. This all changed when I visited James Vivian Dermal Therapies. My therapist’s knowledge, experience and expertise simply blew me away and made it so simple and easy! I now understand the importance of correctly managing my skincare and the value of professional advice.”
“I found out I was pregnant just days after my first appointment at James Vivian Dermal Therapies. I called James regarding the homecare products he had prescribed and he recommended that I bring them back so he could substitute them with ‘pregnant friendly’ products to ensure I could safely achieve the skin I wanted throughout my pregnancy. I was so impressed. Later, when I ended up in hospital for weeks on end, James moved heaven and earth to treat me in my hospital room. It meant the absolute world to me.”
"James Vivian Dermal Therapies’ greatest strength is the genuine care and consideration evident when delivering individualised skin assessments and treatments.”
"I never imagined that a chemical peel could be a relaxing experience. The treatment is relaxing, yet effective, and my therapist always checks in to see how I am feeling."
