RESCU: What are your summer beach bag essentials?
Marta Dusseldorp: A wide brimmed hat, long sleeve light cotton top, Ultraceuticals SunActive 50+ as it’s also 4 hours water resistant, a good book and a big bottle of cold water. Plus, snacks for the kids because they always get hungry at the beach!
RESCU: What’s your most memorable childhood summer memory?
Marta Dusseldorp: Being burnt so badly on the back of my legs! I couldn’t sit in the car on the way home – I had been building an amazing sandcastle and forgot about covering up!
RESCU: How old were you when you first realised it was time to slip, slop, slap?
Marta Dusseldorp: After that… so, about eight years old. As I’ve gotten older I have become less interested in being in the sun and more interested in staying under cover as much as I can! I have taught my kids from a very young age it is absolutely essential to slip, slop, slap everyday (even when the sun isn’t beating down), as our Australian climate is so harsh.
RESCU: What’s your favourite family holiday destination?
Marta Dusseldorp: At the moment it is Northern Territory; exploring Kakadu and Arnhem Land, seeing the people, the rock art, the culture and stories. The landscape and the animals… it’s wild and free.
RESCU: Is there a smell or moment that marks the beginning of summer for you?
Marta Dusseldorp: Jasmine. It’s the flower that reminds me of having hope and my brother.
RESCU: What’s your favourite Australian beach?
Marta Dusseldorp: Bondi. I hit Bondi Beach and I feel home. I have always made it my place to find some inner peace and also just have a great swim.
RESCU: What’s your favourite summer drink or cocktail?
Marta Dusseldorp: My favourite summer drink is lemon, lime and bitters.
RESCU: If you were stranded on a desert island what would be the 3 things you’d have to have to survive?
Marta Dusseldorp: My kids, my pillow and my sense of humour!

ONE of my best friends, Paulina, was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was only 32 and pregnant with her second child. She has the most moving portrait in the Scar project exhibit at David Jones at the moment.
Paulina talks about the picture representing optimism for her — what you must do to survive and also to build awareness that young women are affected by breast cancer too.
I remember when she rang me and told me, it was like my sister being diagnosed. With her family I tried to support her through the whole process of having her breast removed and chemo. She had these two gorgeous little boys who needed their mum.
