Hollywood Skin Secrets (skincare routine of the stars)

Pevonia Botanica Australia Organic Skin Care skincare holloywood skin secrets

Who says it’s all in the genes?

Those who say they were born with great skin could be partly correct but nothing beats an impeccable skincare routine. We’ve curated Hollywood stars’ skin secrets. We’re pretty sure you’ve heard these tips before but we’d like to include our professional advice and recommendations:

Sunscreen

Shelly Goodstein, a 48-year-old Ford model and the author of Face This, says she’s a big fan of sunscreen. In her book, she listed down beauty secrets she learned while being a model but on top of the list is keeping the base healthy and protected day and night.

This works: Sunscreen is absolutely the most effective anti-aging product available. UV light is the #1 cause of premature skin aging so it’s important that you prevent those harmful rays from damaging your skin round the clock. Include in your skincare routine products with action ingedients like retinol, vitamin C, peptides, and salicylic acid, and use a moisturiser, and sunscreen 365 days a year. We recommend the firming and intensely hydrating Stem Cells Phyto Elite range and sun protection Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30. If you get red, hot flashes, this works – Pevonia RS2 Rosacea rangeDo you suffer from facial redness? Meet the celebrities who do too!

Beauty Sleep

This is an old tip but very effective. Gwyneth Paltrow swears by this age old skincare secret and Jennifer Lopez does a full 8hr recommended sleep at night. Ashley Olsen has stressed that unless she gets a full night of sleep, it shows.

This works: At night, while your body rests and you are at sleep, your skin is regenerating new skin cells. Help your under eye area be on tip top shape and wrinkle-free by applying
Pevonia Evolutive Eye Cream just before you sleep. In the morning, let the Pevonia C Evolutive Eye Gel reduce puffiness and dark circles. Evening habits to incorporate in your skincare routine

Exercise

Rihanna‘s secret to her flawless, cellulite free skin? Here it is, “I love swimming, [and doing] anything in the ocean…that’s very, very good for your body.” Sex and The City lead star Sara Jessica Parker says, “I do yoga whenever I can, and I do like feeling fit and healthy.”

This works: Sweat it all out! Frequent a Pevonia spa for a cellulite treatment to keep those nasty butt dimples at bay! At home, try this powerful duo – Pevonia Svelt Gel during the day and Pevonia Svelt Cream at night.

Moisturise

We’ll never get tired of telling you again and again, MOISTURISE! These TV and big screen actresses know their game:

“Probably the top three things would be: moisturize, sleep and work on the eyebrows. Those are the three things I try to focus on in my daily life!” – Emma Stone

“I moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. No matter how late it is, when I get home, I take the time to clean and moisturize my face. I’m a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you really won’t need a lot of makeup.” – Demi Moore

Eat healthy food

“I think the quality of your skin is genetic, but if you eat right and exercise, that helps keep the elasticity in your skin and that youthful, healthy glow.” – Halle Berry

This works: And yes, seductress Halle Berry’s secret is a combination of exercise and healthy food. The simplest and easiest way to effectively hydrate your skin cells, which keeps them moist and healthy-looking, is by using an alcohol-free toner and sealing that in with a skin serum that contains hyaluronic acid. We recommend Pevonia lotions and toners and Pevonia C Complexe booster.

Rebalance and Reclaim Beautiful Skin

Pevonia Botanica Organic Skincare Australia skin care tips moisturiseStill battling winter woes?

We’re halfway through winter and spring will be here very soon. Following our advice on treating your skin to a moisture surge, it’s time to rebalance and reclaim your skin’s lost glow.

We’ve listed down 5 skincare must-do’s that you’re not doing (yet). Emerge with beautiful skin this spring by following these tips:

  1. Dry brush. If you haven’t tried dry brushing before, you are missing a lot. Dry brushing not only helps shed dead skin cells, it also aids blood circulation by stimulating your nerve endings, thus helping you get rid of cellulite. It also helps your skin absorb more from  organic skincare products because it unclogs pores.
  2. Exfoliate often. The more frequent you do it, the better your skin gets. Why is that? When you exfoliate, you are increasing skin renewal at a healthy pace. So when it gets dull, exfoliating gives the dead skin cells a gentle lift (as compared to forcing them off like peeling).
  3. Moisturise. Moisturising is as important as never sleeping with your makeup on. In a country such as ours where weather could be extremely hot or extremely cold, our skin could only take so much. This isn’t just about being aesthetically beautiful. Healthy skin protects us from all kinds of diseases so we must make sure we’re geared at all times.
  4. Wrap it up. You know how salons wrap your body in plastic or bandage wrap after applying body moisturiser? Do can do it at home too. Wrapping your body (or a body part such as your leg) after applying moisturiser increases the heat at a level that opens your pores, thus absorbing your skincare cream better.
  5. And for the nth time, hydrate. Drinking plenty of water is the simplest and easiest way of maintaining healthy skin. Keeping your skin healthy comes easy when you are hydrated because your skin naturally changes without drastic effects.

Ingredient Spotlight: The Benefits of Aloe to your Skin

Living in Australia, it’s likely you’ve at some point in your life been scorched by the sun and used a little gel directly from an aloe plant to soothe the burn but what you might not know is how many other skin benefits this incredible plant has.
Aloe is an ingredient in a huge range of our products including our Balancing Combination Cream, Clarifyl Spot Treatment, Soothing Sensitive Skin Mask, and De-Ageing Mists. Read on to discover more about this wonder-plant and how it could help your skin.

What is Aloe?
Aloe is a family of around 500 succulent plants of which the most well known is Aloe Vera which translates to true aloe. The family is thought to have originated in Africa and has been frequently cited as being used in herbal medicine since the beginning of the first century AD.
Aloe Vera has been dubbed the ‘first aid plant’ and is commonly used on burns, cuts, and even bites.

What skin benefits does aloe have?
- Soothing
Aloe is a natural moisturizer with a cooling, calming effect on the skin, making it ideal for sensitive skin types. You’ll find aloe as a main ingredient in much of our Sensitive Skin Line  . Our Spa Teen All Skin Types Lotion also contains aloe to help protect young skin which tends to be more on the sensitive side.
- Healing 
Both our Purifying Skin Mask and Clarifyl Spot Treatment feature Aloe to help increase blood circulation to the surface of your skin to speed up the healing process and nourish damaged cells.
- Hydrating
 Our famous Dry Oil Body Moisturiser contains aloe to hydrate and heal dry skin.

- Anti-Ageing
Aloe contains amino acids, fatty acids, zinc and vitamins C and E, all of which are important in the process of skin repair, making it the perfect anti-ageing product. Plus it helps oxygenate the skin too. Our De Ageing Mists feature aloe to help stop the aging process.
