Why Erin Holland Wears This One Product Every Day

And other handy skincare tips

The model, singer and former Miss World Australia is frequently on planes and in exotic locations. She reveals her skincare routine and tells us all about how a cancer scare made her a sunscreen devotee.


“I’ll do a deep cleanse in the morning, then I apply Neutrogena Hydro Boost SPF, which hydrates, moisturizes and is a really great primer [Holland is an ambassador for Neutrogena Suncare]. At night, I wash everything off, apply serums then moisturize.”


“I do a lot of flying, so my skin gets dry. If it’s a long flight, I won’t wear any make-up, I will just put on a heavy-duty moisturiser [and then] I’ll wake up and won’t feel so bad.”


“I wear sun protection every day,” says the Neutrogena Sun Care ambassador. “I grew up in Cairns in North Queensland, so I am used to protecting against the sun and my mum has always pressed upon me how important it is to apply sunscreen. I am very fair naturally (I am all about the faux glow!). My mum and dad have had a few scares with pre-cancerous melanoma. It was very scary and I have even had a few moles cut out myself. I make sure that I get a mole scan every twelve months. So, I am acutely aware.”


“I like to go to Endota Spa [Holland is also an Endota Spa ambassador] for the Intense New Age Light Therapy Facial [$220-$275]. It’s a great treatment of glycolic peel, hydro-dermabrasion to infuse moisture and red-light therapy, which helps reduce inflammation. I go to Endota in Paddington [Sydney] but they have them all over Australia, so if I go to Brisbane to visit Ben [Cutting], I go to the Endota on James Street.”


“I don’t like to wear a lot of make-up on holidays. I mix a bit of foundation into my sunscreen, then it’s just mascara and brow mascara (I’m a natural blonde so I need to keep my brows the same colour as my hair!), Endota Natural Lip & Cheek Tint and a bronzer, which I use as an eyeshadow too.”
