Super Foods for Super Skin

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.

Fish

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.

Combination-Skin-Cleanser

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,

Skin vs Body: The Beauty Survey that Shows Good Skin is in

If the beauty genie came to your door to grant you just one wish would you choose to instantly have your perfect body or perfect skin?
Those very rare individuals who have effortlessly flawless skin would probably be surprised to hear the majority of Australian women would opt for great skin over a Victoria’s Secret model worthy bod. But anyone who has ever suffered from acne, rosacea, aging, dullness or sun spots, you’ll know how confidence-crushing skin woes can really be.

Given this, we’re not all that shocked to hear that the majority of Australians are more concerned about their skin tone and texture than they are about their weight. The Cosmetic Physicians of Australiasia and cosmetic medicine website Costhetics conducted a survey of 751 Australians which showed the following results:
58.5% of respondents said skin tone was the most concerning aspect of their appearance
38.9% ranked the appearance of fine lines
34.7% ranked loss of volume in the face and weight

Luckily, you don’t need a genie to start improving your skin tone and getting on the road to flawless skin. Visit your nearest Pevonia Spa and speak to a therapist about the things you can do to improve your skin condition or head to our online store to check out our natural, active products. If you want help without leaving the house, fill in our Contact Us form and tell us about your skin concerns.

Believe us when we say there IS a solution to your skin woes!
