We’ve listed down 5 skincare must-do’s that you’re not doing (yet). Emerge with beautiful skin this spring by following these tips:
Dry brush. If you haven’t tried dry brushing before, you are missing a lot. Dry brushing not only helps shed dead skin cells, it also aids blood circulation by stimulating your nerve endings, thus helping you get rid of cellulite. It also helps your skin absorb more from organic skincare products because it unclogs pores.
Exfoliate often. The more frequent you do it, the better your skin gets. Why is that? When you exfoliate, you are increasing skin renewal at a healthy pace. So when it gets dull, exfoliating gives the dead skin cells a gentle lift (as compared to forcing them off like peeling).
Moisturise. Moisturising is as important as never sleeping with your makeup on. In a country such as ours where weather could be extremely hot or extremely cold, our skin could only take so much. This isn’t just about being aesthetically beautiful. Healthy skin protects us from all kinds of diseases so we must make sure we’re geared at all times.
Wrap it up. You know how salons wrap your body in plastic or bandage wrap after applying body moisturiser? Do can do it at home too. Wrapping your body (or a body part such as your leg) after applying moisturiser increases the heat at a level that opens your pores, thus absorbing your skincare cream better.
And for the nth time, hydrate. Drinking plenty of water is the simplest and easiest way of maintaining healthy skin. Keeping your skin healthy comes easy when you are hydrated because your skin naturally changes without drastic effects.

Living in Australia, it’s likely you’ve at some point in your life been scorched by the sun and used a little gel directly from an aloe plant to soothe the burn but what you might not know is how many other skin benefits this incredible plant has.
Aloe is an ingredient in a huge range of our products including our Balancing Combination Cream, Clarifyl Spot Treatment, Soothing Sensitive Skin Mask, and De-Ageing Mists. Read on to discover more about this wonder-plant and how it could help your skin.
What is Aloe?
Aloe is a family of around 500 succulent plants of which the most well known is Aloe Vera which translates to true aloe. The family is thought to have originated in Africa and has been frequently cited as being used in herbal medicine since the beginning of the first century AD.
Aloe Vera has been dubbed the ‘first aid plant’ and is commonly used on burns, cuts, and even bites.
What skin benefits does aloe have? – Soothing
Aloe is a natural moisturizer with a cooling, calming effect on the skin, making it ideal for sensitive skin types. You’ll find aloe as a main ingredient in much of our Sensitive Skin Line . Our Spa Teen All Skin Types Lotion also contains aloe to help protect young skin which tends to be more on the sensitive side. – Healing
Both our Purifying Skin Mask and Clarifyl Spot Treatment feature Aloe to help increase blood circulation to the surface of your skin to speed up the healing process and nourish damaged cells. – Hydrating Our famous Dry Oil Body Moisturiser contains aloe to hydrate and heal dry skin. – Anti-Ageing
Aloe contains amino acids, fatty acids, zinc and vitamins C and E, all of which are important in the process of skin repair, making it the perfect anti-ageing product. Plus it helps oxygenate the skin too. Our De Ageing Mists feature aloe to help stop the aging process.

Did you know that exfoliation can help you get the most out of your serums and moisturisres? It’s true! Sloughing away dead skin cells helps to prevent clogged pores and clears the way for the serums and moisturisers you use to be fully absorbed.
Our Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is one of our best-selling products. It combines Jojoba Beads, French Rose Essential Oil, Chamomile and Soapwork to gently polish, prevent dead skin cell build-up and prevent clogged pores and blackhead formation all while refining skin’s texture. It’s mild enough for all skin types and is the perfect addition to any skin care regime, especially as winter comes to a close and dead skin build up is at its pinnacle. Incorporating twice-weekly exfoliation into your routine will help bring back the glow that winter robbed your skin of and will mean your moisturiser is able to fully hydrate your skin.
We want you to experience first hand how regular exfoliation brings out the best in your moistursier so this month’s Gift With Purchase offer combines the two. For the month of August*, purchase any Essential Line Cream and you’ll receive a FREE 50mL Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser!
Our Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream is a firm favourite among Pevonia fans. It’s like a facial in a jar – eliminating impurities, blackheads, dead cells, sebum, and toxins to leave you with softer, brighter and clearer skin.
It contains Pineapple and Papaya Enzymes Spherides for deep cleansing as well as Gingko, Calendula, Chamomile, Lemon, Horse Chestnut and Arnica for calming, soothing, brightening and healing benefits. It is gentle enough to use twice a week and is the perfect way to keep your skin looking its best between spa visits.
To get the most from this product, you do need to put in a little extra effort but it is beyond worth it when you see the incredible results.
Here we take you through the steps so you can see how this extraordinary product works…
1. Cleanse and tone the skin then blot dry to remove any surface dirt, oil and makeup. This will ensure the peel is able to work deep into the layers of the epidermis.
2. Apply a layer of Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream all over your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. It’s best to leave about half an inch around the eyes to protect the delicate skin.
3. Wet your fingers with warm water and gently work the product into the skin. You do not need much water at this stage, you’re not trying to wash the product away! At this stage the enzymes which are encapsulated in micro-spherides, are becoming active and digesting all impurities, sebum and toxins in the skin.
4. After about two minutes you will notice the product has almost disappeared from the skin. At this stage, wet your fingers again and repeat the process. This re-working will activate any left over enzymes, working deeper into the pores to cleanse.
5. Take two cotton pads moist with warm water to remove the last of the peeling cream then cleanse thoroughly to ensure any traces of enzymes have been washed away.
