The must have’s to keep your skin glowing all winter long

Pevonia Organic Skincare Australia skin care winter productsOur sun-kissed summer facade has long since faded, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept dull, lifeless-looking skin all winter long. This season we are not only on a mission to combat dryness and keep hydrated, but also to maintain a natural, healthy glow. From vitamin-rich serums to the best of facial exfoliators to skin brightening boosters, these are the products we need to include in our winter-proof radiance routine.

We all know that cooler weather plays havoc on our skin. Changes in temperature, heating, hot showers, cold air, wind dehydrate and devitalise our skin often leaving it rough, dry and sometimes flaky (great!) this means we have to get ahead of the game and step up our skincare TLC.

Pevonia offers great solutions to ensure your skin remains soft and hydrated from head to toe. Not sure where to start? We listed our fan and professional favourites to help you keep your skin glowing all winter long.

  1. Exfoliation is key

Make sure you shed those dry dead skin cells as a build-up is no good for anyone! A regular scrub (think twice per week) using a gentle exfoliator will make all the difference. Try Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. This rather lovely, gentle exfoliator will not only remove unwanted dead nasties but will promise to have your skin impeccably clean, soft and radiant in a matter of moments.

  1. Step up the moisture

Switch to a more nourishing moisturiser and if you haven’t already introduce a serum to your beauty repertoire. Skin is extra thirsty in winter and will benefit from a quenching dose of moisture in the form of Intensifier Collagen & Myoxy Caviar and Marine Collagen Cream, the dynamic duo! Apply a few drops of the intensifier (serum) beneath the moisturizer for a dewy radiant complexion while the Collagen Cream seals in vital moisture and imparts comfort for your skin…all day long.

  1. Night nurturing

Before bed lather your face with a vitamin-rich serum (just as you’d take a multi-vitamin tablet for health & wellbeing). Try Vitaminic Concentrate. The radical treatment for skin lacking lustre combats dehydration with a burst of vitamins A, E You’re your complexion really will look brighter and rejuvenated by morning.

  1. Love your eyes

One particular area quick to suffer the effects of winter are the eyes. Often taken for granted, this sensitive area is usually the first to show signs of aging and lack of care. Drench the eye contours with super hydrating Eye Contour rich in Collagen and skin firming elastin. Dehydration lines will be a thing of the past!

  1. Body Love

Lather your body as you would your face, with plenty of rich cream and pay particular attention to super dry areas such as elbows, knees and heels.

Applying your body lotion/cream in the bathroom following a warm bath or shower is a great way to ensure your body readily absorbs the moisture as the warmth in the air will help open your pores thus locking in the moisture. Try Preserve Body Moisturiser. Rich in oils, vitamins and phyto-extracts which restore the skins essential lipids, leaving it soft and hydrated.

  1. Safeguard skin

Just because it isn’t hot (and potentially sunny, blue skies) doesn’t mean you should slack off with the sunscreen. A super hydrating sunscreen in the winter months will benefit your ailing dry skin. Try Hydrating Sunscreen SPF

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.

Remember:

  • 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!

Goodbye Cellulite!

Confession of a 20-something…

I’m not sure when it started. I wasn’t aware how I got cellulite because I was so busy being an awesome twenty-something. Now that I’m about to welcome age 30, I’d like to stay true to myself and be more responsible. I recently did a physical checkup (with myself) and realised that my body changed a lot during all those years I spent sleeping late (which basically meant before sunrise), pulling all-nighters at work, indulging a little too much on alcoholic drinks, trading gym sessions for sleep, and taking for granted “basic” skincare routine for more sleep.

I gasped after seeing the cellulite that built up on my thighs. For a while, I was exasperated but there’s no one else to blame but me and my youthful irresponsibility.

So here’s what I did…

I know that there’s nothing Pevonia couldn’t fix. Eversince I discovered how organic skincare works, I opted to keep using only natural and organic products on my skin. Whenever I have a skincare concern, I’d always go to Pevonia Australia website and search for a product line that would resolve my skin condition or drop a line or two at the “Need Help” section at the bottom right if I have other questions.

I typed “cellulite” on the search box and the result displayed three products that promise to reduce appearance of cellulite. I’ve been using all three for four weeks now and I must say these products are gems! This skincare routine coupled with regular cardio is slowly improving my skin so I’m sure in a couple of weeks, my cellulite will become invisible. :)

Pevonia Botanica Australia Organic Skin Care skincare Seaweed Green Coffee Svelt Gel Cream Soap for Cellulite

All three have properties that help eliminate toxins and prevent water stagnation on skin’s surface. Here they are, the Super 3 I’ve been telling my friends about:

To know the products’ benefits and instructions on how to use, click the links above.

Life begins at 30

Most women of my age feel as if we’re entering the old phase. I say, I feel younger than ever, only wiser and more responsible. Although physical appearance is just one of the many standards of what’s beautiful, for me it helps empower us and make us feel happy about ourselves. So yes, I promise to never skip my skincare routine again, ever.

Goodbye cellulite!
