Multi-hyphenate Erin Holland may have only lasted a short time on SAS Australia, but it didn’t take very much airtime for us to start obsessing over the former beauty queen’s immaculate complexion.
The founder of health and wellbeing app ‘Shift with Erin’, Holland no doubt takes care of herself physically through a strict diet and exercise regimen, but we had to know what skin care products the model and TV host was hiding in her bathroom cabinet to be able to achieve such flawless, porcelain skin.
Fastidious in our hunt for the 32-year-old’s skin care secrets, we scoured the many corners of the Internet and discovered that while Holland’s skin may not always be perfect (she’s struggled openly with acne in recent years), she’s a big proponent for a simple, easy-to-maintain skin care routine that doesn’t break the bank – we knew we liked this woman for a reason.
SPF is a MUST
“The basics of my skin care routine are simple – cleanse, moisturise, sunscreen,” Holland told Beauticate in 2019. “After moisturiser I always apply sunscreen before I apply my makeup. Our skin is just too important not to do so.”
“I’ve been raised to be super diligent with my sun safety, growing up as I did in North Queensland and having our family experience skin cancer,” Holland explained.
Holland’s go-to sunscreen picks for daily protection?
“Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Lotion SPF50 ($9.99 at Chemist Warehouse) everyday is a must for me… it works so well as a base under makeup,” the model shared with Beauticate. “It’s lightweight and dries matte, makeup goes on so easily afterwards because the sunscreen hasn’t made you greasy or shiny.”
The La Roche-Posay ambassador has also come out as a fan of La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid SPF50 + ($20.99 at Chemist Warehouse) on her Instagram, saying she loves that it’s “so lightweight, non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog your pores!) and perfectly works under your daily makeup, so gives me no excuse to stay protected!”.
“Daily sunscreen is STILL your #1 defence against premature signs of ageing, such as wrinkles, pigmentation and age spots,” the model explained to her followers in another IG post dedicated to the cult-fave SPF formula.
