Discover Saben’s Colourful Winter Collection

If you’re looking to add a little pop of on-trend colour to your wardrobe this winter, a little arm candy in a vivid autumnal hue is the easiest way to do just that.

Saben’s new collection, aptly named Winter Garden, features an enchanting colour palette that all brings all of our favourite autumnal shades to life.

Within the collection, you’ll find fiery shades of red, rich burgundy hues and herbaceous hints of olive green. Those who prefer natural hues won’t be disappointed either with shades of deep black, soft camel, slate grey and dark Prussian blue. Always-in-fashion black gets a textural update with oversize pebble grain of bubble and embossed croc.

Designed by Roanne Jacobson, the collection features many of Saben’s staple styles including  Frankie, Fifi, Tilly, Big Sis’ and Matilda. “Inspired by the women who wear them, more playful tones have become paramount as our customers become more confident with colour,” Jacobson says.

The silhouettes range from mini to massive. Nikko, a casual, on-the-go sling gets a high-fashion upgrade – peppered with micro-studs for that wink of fun winter outfitting needs. At the other end of the scale Roma, an oversized carry-all-come-weekender is a solution that speaks to those with hoarding tendencies.

“Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of considered effort. We spend most of our time and energy perfecting clever design. Every single detail from material to technique is thought through with obsessive attention.” Says Jacobson.

3 Beauty Rules You Need to Follow Right Now

Looking to up your beauty game? These three beauty rules will help you achieve your skin goals.

Each day handfuls of new serums, lotions and creams promising to make time stand still launch around the world. But with the overwhelming choice of skincare products to pick from and the rise of social media – anyone with a smartphone can be a beauty expert these days – it has become harder to separate fact from fiction.

“People are becoming savvier with their use of skincare products and active ingredients are more readily available,” says Katy Bacon, education manager for Murad Australasia Pacific. And while we are more educated about the skincare options available to us, instead of consulting professionals for advice on skin problems, many people are turning to Doctor Google. “People are often self-diagnosing and combining multiple active ingredients, as a result damaging their skin,” says Bacon.

Stop Over-Treating Skin

Surprisingly, there definitely can be too much of a good thing when it comes to skincare, particularly where exfoliation is concerned, says Bacon. “I am seeing a lot of over-processed skin from people over exfoliating,” she says. “It causes dryness, irritation and sensitivity.”

Bacons says rather than self-diagnose your skin, get the right advice when it comes to incorporating potent active ingredients into your routine. “I can’t urge people enough to seek proper skin care advice from an experienced skincare professional before purchasing multiple forms of exfoliators, retinol, AHAs and at home peels.” At the end of the day, if you want to see real results, less can most definitely be more with skincare, says Bacon.

Wearing Sunscreen Every Day is Non-Negotiable 

For many of us sunscreen only makes an appearance once warmer weather arrives bringing with it the sun’s harmful UV rays. But global educator for Elizabeth Arden Professional and Priori, Tracy May-Harriott, explains that it’s one step we should be including in our routine no matter what the weather.

“Even on cloudy days we have a lot of UV hitting the earth and our skin. We get negative effects too from infra-red and blue wavelengths too so sunscreen is becoming increasingly essential as the science starts to consistently back-up the findings of harmful rays,” she explains. If you make one thing top of your beauty rules for 2019, May-Harriott says make it the application of sunscreen. “It starts with prevention, remember.”

You Are What You Eat

While the odd piece of chocolate or indulgent meal won’t cause acne or significant skin problems, Bacon says we are ultimately what we eat. “As scientists learn more about diet and the body, it’s increasingly clear that what you eat can significantly affect the health and ageing of your skin,” she says.

“Poor diet choices can trigger hormonal fluctuations and inflammation in the body, both of which encourage acne,” she explains. “At Murad we recommend the 80/20 rule, a diet balanced in water rich foods such as vegetables, whole grains and fruits. Think of your diet as a way to internally nourish your skin!”
