Meet a Pevonia “Cult” Product – the Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30

Pevonia Botanica Australia Organic Skin Care skincare sunscreen pevoniaWe know, we know you’ve heard this a million times; sunscreen is important. BUT did you know sunscreen contributes to 99% of ageing skin while protecting skin from the damaging ultraviolet rays, UVA and UVB. UVB is responsible for sunburn and cancerous changes while UVA has more long-term damaging effects, like wrinkling a premature aging. UVA has a longer wavelength, travels through glass and damages collagen, speeding up the aging process. In short there is no reason why you shouldn’t wear sunscreen each and every day to protect your pretty complexion and skin health. 4 Reasons why you need the Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 in your beauty arsenal…

  1. You haven’t seen a sunscreen like this before! Forget the oily, thick, white, cringe inducing slap. This Pevonia favourite glides smoothly onto the face and effortlessly absorbs into the skin imparting sun protection benefits AND antioxidants to nurture and correct skin health, Aloe to hydrate skin and Rose to reduce inflammation.
  2. Just how great is this Sunscreen? You can wear makeup over the top without the greasy feel. Like any other beautifully textured Pevonia cream, the Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 is a tri-phase formulation to penetrate the skin’s surface instead of sitting on top of the skin.
  3. We’ve been through the importance of protecting skin from UVA and UVB rays, right? Well buckle up because this sunscreen has broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection to provide your skin with complete coverage.
  4. Sunscreen will remain, through the years and seasons, your biggest anti-aging product. So find one you are comfortable using each morning which provides more than just sun protection benefits for the skin. Of course, we suggest the luxurious and finely formulated Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30.

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. 🙂

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:

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!

Prevent dry, rough hands this winter

It’s no secret hands are tough! Like our feet, the skin is thicker meaning hands can bounce back from the odd pan or curling iron burn, withstand household chemicals and be used day in day out for a myriad of activities with little discomfort to the skin. However just like our face and body we need to look after our hands to prevent them becoming dry, chapped, cracked and uncomfortable!

Not only are they useful little things but hands are one of the first places that betray your age! Yet another reason why we want to keep our hands supple and smooth all year round, not to mention mani’s look much more polished on a smoother, healthier hand.

Here are tips to care for your hands this Winter (and season after season)

  1. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! In the cooler months there is less moisture in the air and this strips our own skin of hydration. Keep a hand a cream on your desk, by your beside and in your hand bag. For an absolute hydrating pleasure try the Pevonia Myoxy Caviar Hand & Foot Cream. It applies like liquid silk and your hands with literally glow with a healthy radiance without a greasy finish. Caviar, Marine Collagen and Retinol blend to create the ultimate anti-aging formula. Decadence at its finest!

  2. Pat hands dry, don’t rough a towel over freshly washed hands. So you’re not stripping more moisture from hands after washing them, gently pat them dry and immediately follow with a hand cream.
  3. If you find the sensation of moisturiser on your hands simply too slippery try squeezing the cream onto the back of your hands and use the backs of the hands to rub the cream in. This way front of your hands stay free of moisturiser – although I do suggest you add a touch a moisturiser to care for this part of your hands too.
  4. Is repeatedly washing your hands in winter too harrowing? Keep a hand sanitiser on your desk so you can quickly pump this onto your hands before you eat lunch and keep hands clean while colds and flus are lurking about.
  5. Put your Exfoliator to multi-use! Do you notice after you scrub your face or body with a granular exfoliator, the front of your hands are silky smooth? That’s because as you are exfoliating your face and body, your hands are also benefiting from a nice little scrub. Every time you exfoliate your skin be sure to rub a small amount over both the front and back of the hands. You’ll notice how well your hand cream will soak in afterwards! Try the Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser for face and then for hands! Jojoba beads gently lift dead skin cells and reveal a softer, more radiant complexion.

  6. Create a new routine to incorporate moisturising your hands. A good rule of thumb (yes, pun intended) is to moisturise hands just before bed time to let your hands soak in all the nourishing and hydrating properties overnight. Pevonia Multi-Active Hand Cream is fantastic to apply morning, night and 10 times in between!

  7. As tempting as it may be, water temperatures when washing your hands to luke warm. The hot water will dry out hands and only relieve cold, dry hands momentarily.

Remember if your hands feel dry, they are already too dry! Prevention is better than cure and you want to keep your hands soothe, supple and soft all year round.

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.

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.
