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!

Skin Tightening Tips for Weight Loss

When you’ve just lost a significant amount of weight, it’s very common to experience excess loose skin. This is possibly the ONLY bad thing about healthy weight loss but it can feel like a bit of a downpour on your ‘check out my new body’ parade.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways that those currently trying to loose weight, those thinking about starting a lifestyle overhaul for weight loss and those who have already lost weight can get their skin back in tip-top shape.

1.  Don’t Delay Another Day
Are you in the ‘thinking about it’ stage of weight loss? Don’t delay. The older we get, the less elasticity our skin has and the less likely it is to bounce back.
2. Drink Water
Healthy, elastic skin needs water. Drink up.
3. Try a Serious Salt Scrub
Scrubbing your body helps to encourage increased blood flow. Increased blood flow is a fast-track to healthier skin. Try having a good scrub with our De Ageing Saltmousse Papaya-Pineapple once or twice a week and watch your skin become silky smooth and supple.4. Weighty Ambitions
Building muscle will help eliminate that saggy skin. If you’re not doing weights already, start. If you are, are you really pushing yourself?
5. Five a Day
Eat your fruit and veg because there nutrient-dense goodies will give your skin a boost. Not to mention help you keep that weight off for good!
6. Use Green Coffee
Green Coffee helps to eliminate water stagnation and toxin retention, both of which cause cellulite and loose skin. Try our Smooth & Tone Body Svelt Cream and Gel to dramatically improve your skin’s overall texture.
7. Don’t Sunbake
As if there weren’t already enough reason to stop lying out in the sun, the sun damages the quality of your skin meaning, you guessed it, decrease elasticity. If you’re in the sun use SPF. If you want a tan, fake it.
8. Be Patient
This piece of advice plays a part in every stage of your weight loss journey. Lose it slowly so your body has time to adjust and you don’t fall into the traps of yo-yo dieting (all that stretching and shrinking can seriously wreck havoc on your elasticity levels). When you’re at your goal, celebrate and be patient with your skin. Indulge in a good scrub each week and enjoy looking after your skin, nothing worthwhile happens overnight!

6 Easy Ways to Get Rid of Cellulite

Summer may be over but we know cellulite is something women worry about year-round so we’ve decided to bring you our top tips for battling the dimples.
Don’t get us wrong, we know cellulite is completely normal and something that really shouldn’t play on your self-esteem but it’s a very rare women who screams from the rooftops; ‘I LOVE MY CELLULITE’ and, unless they’re on your cheeks, dimples are generally unwanted. So, we’ve put together these easy tips to make your skin a little smoother…

1. Drink Water
Buckets of it. Not really, three or so liters a day will do the trick.  We know sometimes ‘drink water’ feels like the solution to everything and it can be a bit tiring to hear but water is the cheapest, easiest way to detoxify your body and get rid of any nasties that are keeping you from a dimple-free derriere.

2. Boost Circulation and Burn Fat
There are several ways you can boost circulation. First of all, you should step up the cardio workouts to encourage fat burning and blood movement. Don’t have time to get to the gym? No excuses, take 10 minute stretch breaks every hour or soto get the blood moving. Walk around, stretch out and you will notice a difference.
Finally, if you’re not getting enough fruit and veg, either up the ante or start taking a multi with plenty of Vitamin B.

 3. Eat the Rainbow
Bright fruits such as mango and papaya have antioxidants that are thought to prevent tissue damage while broccoli, peas and lima beans help fight inflammation of the connective tissue. Blueberries and blackberries also help boost the antioxidant level in the body and stimulate the production of collagen which may lessen the appearance of cellulite.

4. Use Green Coffee
Creams containing caffeine have been proven to eliminate cellulite. Green coffee in particular helps to eliminate toxins and water retention, improve blood circulation, improve skin elasticity and reduce puffy, spongy skin.
Our Smooth and Tone Body-Svelte Cellulite Gel and  Smooth and Tone Body-Svelte Cellulite Cream both contain green coffee and work together to eliminate cellulite and improve the appearance of the skin.

5. Eat Soy
Got a tofu habit? Keep it up! Soy products contain an element known as genistein. Genistein has collagen-boosting qualities that can reduce cellulite and block further breakdown of frail skin fibers.

6. Body Brush
Dry body brushing has become more popular in recent years and while we know the routine can be a little annoying, it really does work wonders for your health and skin. Invest in a body brush and do your best to spend a few minutes each day brushing in a circular motion. It will stimulate circulation, lymphatic flow and shed dry skin cells.

Finally, don’t beat yourself up over it! Even the slimmest celebrities (hello Kate Moss) suffer from the dreaded dimples.
