In a spot of bother? Learn to read your skin and fight blemishes and pigmentation…effectively

Problems with pigmentation? Worried about blemishes? Prone to facial redness? You are not alone. Hormones, stress, diet, dehydration, the environment, the wrong skincare and of course a change in the season can all cause havoc with our skin. Many alternative practitioners even believe that blemishes in particular areas of the skin can actually reflect different problems in your internal health!

But before you panic, potentially buy the wrong products or even get your dirty paws all over said problem, check out our easy-to-understand face map, read our tips, and treat your skin to cooling, calming, results-driven skincare the kind way!

Understanding your skin - FACE MAPPING

1. Breakouts on your forehead – DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Blemishes in this area can be a sign of improper diet, food intolerances and a lack of water so make sure you think about what you are consuming, try to avoid processed foods and drink plenty of water.

2. Breakouts around your brow line – ADRENAL STRESS/CLEANLINESS

If you are prone to spots in and around your eyebrows it can be a sign of improper or lack of removal of makeup which leads to a build-up of dead skin cells which equals blemishes.

Exfoliation is in order! While regular skin cleansing is clearly beneficial, gentle exfoliating will help rejuvenate your skin and fight blemishes and pigmentation bringing new life to your complexion!

Remember if your skin is too dry, it will actually produce more oil which in turn can lead to more pesky pimples. Using a gentle cleanser will remove surface oils and makeup without stripping and disrupting your natural pH. Try: Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

However if skin is super sensitive you are best to opt for an enzyme exfoliant which does not contain beads.

Try: Enzymo Spherides Peeling Cream

3. Breakouts between your brows – LIVER

If you have spots in between your eyebrows it can be linked to issues with your liver. Try to cut down on your dairy intake, reduce alcohol if you’ve been drinking more than usual and try not to eat rich or greasy foods. As before make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Very important!

4. Breakouts around your eye area – KIDNEYS

Blemishes, pigmentation, dark circles all point to dehydration! Increase fluids (not soft drinks, coffee and alcohol!) and treat your delicate eye area to skin nurturing ingredients and a moisture burst. Try “C” Evolutive Eye Gel, it will reduce dark circles and puffiness, revealing alluring eyes with a visibly refreshed and rejuvenated eye contour.

5. Breakouts on your cheeks – LUNGS

This can be linked to the respiratory system. Think pollution. Or do you smoke? Have you been suffering from a bad cold? Get some fresh air, up your intake of vitamin C, eat more fresh veggies and fruit and cut down on alchohol, caffeine, sugar and dairy.

Skin can also appear lack-luster so treat it to a surge of vitamin c too! Try “C” Complexe, it will boost your skin’s radiance, drench it with repairing antioxidants and render it brighter and smoother.

6. Breakouts on your nose – HEART

Any blemishes on your nose can indicate high blood pressure and Vitamin B deficiency.

Replace bad fats with good fats such as nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed. Make sure you are taking multi-vitamin supplements and try to avoid rich and spicy foods!

7/8. Breakouts in and around your chin – HORMONES/STOMACH

Getting pimples in this area can be linked to your stomach (spots on the central part of your chin) as well as the more obvious hormonal changes (outer area of the chin) which can be more apparent during certain stages of a woman’s cycle. Focus on your diet, eat well upping your intake of leafy veggies and fibre. Try to get plenty of rest (not always easy!) and as before drink plenty of water. Also ensure you keep skin clean, clean, clean! Try one of our Organic Essential Line Cleansers (for dry, sensitive, combination or oily skin.)

9. Breakouts on your neck – ILLNESS

Breakouts in this area can be linked to your body fighting bacteria to avoid illness. What you need now is rest and recuperation!

It’s important to look after yourself and your skin. What you consume is just as important as what you put on your skin! And remember to always use a moisturiser! First sight of a pesky pimple and so many of us will hold off on applying a moisturiser thinking it’s feeding the area with too much moisture resulting in pimples! Yet the more you deprive your skin of moisture the more it will produce, making breakouts become all the more common. We have a huge range of moisturisers to suit every skin type, so work out what’s best for your skin and treat it with some Pevonia loving! Try

Help the men in your life refine their skincare choices

Pevonia Botanica Australia Organic Skin Care skincare Australia Men with great skin are hotMen are into gadgets and cars and they’d spend more hours scanning hardware shelves to score new tools than shop for skincare products. Women do the grocery shopping most of the time and when it comes to skin care, if you leave the men to do it, they’d probably pick a product they know from eighth grade. Geez.

This September, help the men in your life refine their choices with Pevonia Organic Skincare. When a man reaches his 30s, he becomes more concerned about his age so starting a basic anti-aging skincare routine is step one to achieving younger looking skin.


  • Men’s skin has thicker epithelium or outer layer so it’s important to use skincare products especially made for men to address their needs.
  • Go for regular facial treatment at the spa. Facial treatment for men is different from regular facial because men’s skin needs more hydration and it needs a powerhouse combo of repair actives. Because men’s skin is thicker, it needs products with tremendous ability to penetrate and bond moisture to skin.
    Perfect Father’s Day Gift: Pevonia’s Skin Fit Treatment for Men
  • Sunscreen is a must. No excuses. In a study done by Skin Cancer Foundation, men are more prone to Melanoma than women. Excessive exposure to the harmful sun rays burns men’s skin and that is because men tend to take for granted proper skin protection than women.
  • Exfoliate. And we mean men should exfoliate more often than women.
  • After-shave balm isn’t a substitute for moisturiser. Aftershave only shrinks the damaged pores so you need a moisturiser to hydrate your skin.
  • Have a nutritious diet. Remember, it shows on your skin when you eat healthy food so when you don’t, the dullness becomes even more visible. Tip: the more colourful your plate is, the better. Fruits and veggies are life changing!

Super Foods for Super Skin

Pevonia Australia organic skin care Mixed Superfoods vegetables fruites healthy

Is your skin feeling lacklustre or you simply want to reboot it and up that healthy glow? Try introducing one of the below into your diet to rejuvenate skin from the inside out.


Cold water fish are an excellent source of protein and essential fats such as omega-3s, which when consumed have anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Tuna is also known to promote elastin, to keep skin smooth, and supple.

Pevonia Australia Age-Correction-Firming-Marine-Elastin-Cream

To promote elasticity in skin look to the Age Correction Firming Marine Elastin Cream. This wonder product improves suppleness and elasticity in skin while revitalising, protecting and hydrating skin.


Green Tea

The polyphenols in green tea contain both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and can prevent against environmental damage. On those cooler afternoons, be sure to reach for a hot cup of Green Tea to warm up and boost skin!


Berries and kiwi and orange, oh my!

Strawberries are one of the most popular berry fruits in the world and contain high quantities of Vitamin C and K. Both Oranges and Kiwi Fruits are also an excellent source of Vitamin C which is a super antioxidant. Vitamin C is required for a strong immune system and radiant skin and help produce collagen to strengthen skin. To maximise the benefits of these super antioxidant delights, eat the fruit fresh.

Pevonia Australia Organic Skincare C-Complexe

To add a dose of Vitamin C to your skin care reach for the “C” Complexe. A beautiful serum for a radiant complexion! Vitamin C works to brighten skin and restore a youthful appearance in skin.


Almonds and Avocados

The Vitamin E found in almonds and avocados supports healthy skin growth and protects skin from cell damage that occurs in the aging process.


For those with combination skin (oily, yet dehydrated) your daily dose of Vitamin E to the skin is found in the Combination Skin Cleanser. A light textured, water soluble cleanser that controls an oily “T zone”, while deeply cleansing skin without stripping hydration.


Lean Red Meat

Zinc rich foods include lean red, poultry and fish. Zinc plays a role in the normal functioning of the sebaceous glands in skin, which produce oil, and helps to repair skin damage.


Bottoms Up!

And of course the cardinal rule of good health and well-being, drink plenty of water! Skin needs moisture to stay flexible. Mild dehydration can often be felt and seen in dry, parched and cracking lips but your skin too will start to look dry, tired and slightly grey if it’s not receiving enough hydration.

holiday skin careHi Guys,

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been burning the candle at both ends lately, working hard, grabbing meals on the run, and enjoying all those lovely Christmas cocktails. I sure feel the need to detox. Do you?

Well, it’s not going to happen until after New Year, so I’m relying on a few smart skin care steps to get me through. Want to join me? Here’s my list of essentials, to keep me feeling as fresh as possible this party season.

1. A Dry Body Brush

I use one every morning, before showering. It kick starts circulation and helps to support lymphatic drainage, which eliminates toxins from the body and helps counteract seasonal woes, like dark circles and puffy eyes.
Simply run it over your body, starting at the left ankle and moving in long upward strokes in the direction of your heart. Your skin should turn a mild shade of pink, which signifies that it’s working. Make sure it doesn’t redden though – that means you’ve been brushing too hard.

2. Pevonia Anti-Stress Bath and Shower Gel, $81.50

I lather up with this in the shower, in place of soap. It’s a skin softening, lightly sudsing lotion that cleanses the skin without stripping away the oils it needs to remain hydrated and soft. Use a shower sponge, as it will further stimulate circulation and help you turn your shower into a real spa experience.

3. Pevonia Silky Skin Body Scrub, $75

This is my twice-weekly treat, which keeps the skin on my body glowing. It contains jojoba beans, rosemary, sage and allantoin to slough dead skin cells whilst infusing anti-ageing, skin-clearing and softening benefits.

It also helps your body remove toxins, as it clears the way for them be flushed out through the skin via sweat. And, it’s a great anti-cellulite tool … massage into affected areas for a few minutes to help flush away the fluid that has built up under the skin.

4. Pevonia Aromatic Moor, $182

This is the ultimate. It’s an ancient anti-fatigue therapy that relies on Natural Black Moor and Pine Essential Oil to relieve aches and pains, as well and melt away tension and stress. It has a drawing action, which means it can absorb toxins through the skin and help combat cellulite. It can heal the skin as it softens and is just perfect for party-weary bodies. Add half a cup to your bath and soak for 20 minutes. I indulge in this about twice a week, on the same days that I’ve used my Silky Skin Body Scrub.

5. Pevonia Micro-Emulsion Massage Oil Anti-Stress, $61
I always moisturise all over, every time I step out of the shower or bath. And, I love to use oil, as I feel it has a better affinity with my skin. This oil is a favourite of mine, as it has a delicate uplifting scent, but it leaves my skin feeling supple and really well hydrated. I take a few minutes to massage it in well, using long, firm movements (Lomi Lomi style) from my left ankle, again following the direction of blood flow.

So, that is my regime to keep my skin as radiant as possible throughout the party season. In January, I’ll embark on a proper detox, which eliminates caffeine and cocktails, too, but until then, I’m sticking to this!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Love and light,

Shonagh Walker
