5 steps to perfecting sandal-ready feet!

sandal-ready feet

sandal-ready feet

Ready to slip into sandals and flaunt your feet? Or are they looking more drab than fab? If the latter it’s time to rejuvenate your feet back to their former summer glory with these 5 simple steps.

  1. Foot soak

There is nothing quite as relaxing as soaking your feet in a warm bath. In fact soaking your feet offers a multitude of benefits from softening the skin in preparation for step no. 2, to easing tired muscles and improving circulation!sandal-ready feet - soak

  1. Scrub away

Exfoliation is a key part to getting your feet sandal ready! Scaly, dry feet are not pretty so it’s important to remove any dead skin from your heels and the pads of your feet. You can do this by using an exfoliating cream, pumice or foot scrub.

  1. Moisturise

We all understand the importance of moisturising our face (and body!) so why should our feet be any different? Over the winter months feet often get neglected resulting in dry cracked heels and hard, thickened skin. It’s time to treat your feet to an intensive moisturising cream!

Try Pevonia Multi-Active Foot Cream. This wonder-cream combines ingredients like tea tree oil, orange oil, shea butter, salicylic acid and glycolic acid, making it antibacterial and deeply moisturising. Hardened, rough areas will be instantly softened, rendering feet restored and smooth!

  1. Nail care

Caring for your toe nails is just as important as grooming your feet! Make sure you regularly file and clip nails ready for the perfect polish!

  1. Polish for perfection

Have fun experimenting with the perfect polish for your tootsies! And use a toe separator for ease (it’ll make application so much easier!) A fresh coat of polish will complete the perfect pedicure for feet and have them sandal ready in next to no time!

Bonus step: Soothe sore feet

There is no doubt that we demand more of our feet during the spring and summer months! So at the end of a long day, pamper tired, aching feet with Pevonia’s Tension Relief Gel.  It’s anti-inflammatory, cooling and uplifting for sore feet.

Feeling time poor?  Why not go all out and give your feet the heavenly attention of a professional pedi-spa. The Pevonia Foot spa treatment is really more like a foot facial! Lounge back and be pampered, nourished and polished to pedi-perfection. Search for your nearest Pevonia spa here.

Your skin through the ages: Understanding your skin and choosing the right products to prevent premature ageing

When it comes to ageing, nothing reflects it more than our skin.
From the silky smoothness of a baby’s complexion to the lines and wrinkles of mature lady, here’s what to expect through the decades, and what you can do to help prolong your youth and prevent premature ageing!

Understanding your skin and choose the right products to prevent premature ageing

20’s

Once you reach your twenties it’s easy to fall under the false pretence that since your teens are behind you, so are those pesky pimples! Wrong! While your skin may have settled (as have those hormones) it’s still producing oil. Also news flash! Your body actually stops producing collagen once you hit 25! You know collagen, the protein which provides elasticity to the skin helping it to appear youthful, glowing and vibrant! So it’s important to exfoliate daily to continue daily collagen renewal.

What you may need: Opt for natural extracts in light-textured, non-greasy formulations in order to keep pores clean and clear. Also, use a broad spectrum UVA & UVB daily sunscreen – just remember you’re never too young to start wearing sunscreen!

Try; Organic Essentials Line; Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30

30’s

Ageing really begins at 30. Fine lines develop as collagen and elastin start to break down, and our delicate skin under the eyes begins to thin. Skin generally becomes drier, quicker. Broken veins may start to show up as tiny red dots, and towards the end of this decade, age spots and brown pigmentation marks, or ‘sun spots’, may appear. Under-eye puffiness may become a problem, taking longer to subside after you wake.

What you may need: Effective youth-prolonging skincare to strengthen, smooth and rejuvenate. Hydrating Moisturisers formulated with marine collagen, Eye Creams & Gels.

Try; Age Correction Marine Collagen Cream & Intensifier, Age Correction Eye Contour, “C” Evolutive Eye Gel.

40’s

Deeper lines begin to etch around the mouth and eyes, furrows appear on the forehead and circles under the eyes may grow into pouches. Most women’s skin becomes noticeably drier. In the run-up to the menopause, and during this phase, skin may also become more sensitive. What’s more, skin loses its resilience due to a breakdown of elastin and collagen.

What you may need: Your daily regime should embrace products that offer specific benefits to counteract skin problems such as: anti-aging, sensitivity, hyper-pigmentation, Eg. Soothing serums to protect capillaries, lip and eye care, deeply repairing and resurfacing products.

Try; Micro-Retinol Line; Eye Renew Conceal & De-Age Treatment, Lip Renew Plump & De-Age Treatment, Propolis Concentrate

Pevonia Australia - Premature Ageing

50’s

By now, skin starts to acquire true ‘character’ in the form of fine wrinkles, and the lines you develop in your 50’s and 60’s may deepen into folds. This is because, post-menopausal, there’s much less oestrogen being produced and without oestrogen, skin becomes thinner and more fragile. It is also less able to retain moisture and the production of collagen and elastin slows down significantly. In your 50’s skin tone is also likely to become more uneven, with an increasing number of ‘sun spots’.

What you may need: Products that minimize the appearance of lines, contain phyto-estrogens and protect the skin from the sun or even fade sunspots.

Try; Stem Cells Phyto-Elite Line, RS2 Line, Lip Renew Plump & De-Age Treatment, Lumafirm Eye Contour Lift & GlowRenewing Glycocides Cream

60’s

Your skin has a hard time retaining moisture and natural oil production slows down so skin is very dry. Cell turnover continues to slow – a process that started in your forties so skin is generally duller than before. Between the lack of oil, the loss of collagen and elastin, and the dryness, dark spots can really start to stand out. Areas of scaly roughness often seen on fair-skinned women that can be a precursor to skin cancer.

What you may need: De-ageing products with wrinkle relaxers such as vegetal botox, exfoliating products with aha’s, products rich in collagen and elastin, sun protection and pigment fading products

Try; Myoxy-Caviar Timeless Repair Line, Renewing Glycocides Cream, Lumablanc Cream
