Body Scrubbing Benefits Plus Last Days of June Gift With Purchase

The benefits of a body scrubbing go far beyond skin deep.
If you’re not indulging in a good scrub once or twice a week, read on to discover what you’re missing out on…

Exfoliation
The most obvious of the many body scrubbing benefits, sloughing away dead skin cells helps to keep the skin in tip-top condition by paving the way for new skin cells and eliminating the flaky, rough skin so many of us experience in the colder months.

Skin Health and an All-Over Glow
If you fancy glowing skin (come on, who doesn’t?) a good scrub will be your best friend. So many of us work hard to ensure the skin on our face is glowing but if the skin on your décolletage and any other areas you dare to bare is sallow, you won’t exactly be the picture of health. The skin is the biggest organ of the body so look after it! Healthy skin is better able to fight off bacteria and infection that it may come in contact with.

Increased Circulation and Decreased Cellulite
A good exfoliation will help boost circulation. Improved blood circulation will help promote cell growth and organ function. Cellulite is also linked to circulation so a good scrub can help eliminate those unwanted dimples too.

Six Common Skin Care Mistakes

When it comes to skin care, there are some little mistakes that are just all too common. The problem with these smaller mistakes is that they are the less-obvious culprits when it comes to problems like breakouts, sensitivity, dryness and dullness so we don’t immediately think of them and eradicate them.
Read through these and see if you’re making any of the most common skin care mistakes. If you are, change your habits and watch your skin improve!

1. Over Cleansing
Cleansing too often can cause the skin to try out leaving the sebaceous glands to overproduce, so you end up with skin that’s both dehydrated and superficially oily, leaving it prone to breakouts. Cleansing twice a day with a cleanser that suits your skin type is enough to keep your skin healthy.

2. Jumping Straight to Power Products
At Pevonia, we recommend ALL customers start on our essential range products. We have complete lines for Sensitive, Oily, Dry and Combination skin. After three months on the essential range, the skin will be ready for a more active range and customers can switch or simply incorporate some of the more active products into their routine.
Often in skin care people are looking for a quick fix so they want to jump straight in the deep end but the real results come from a more gentle, long term approach.

3. Exfoliating Too Often
People with dry skin often want to exfoliate every day, thinking it will help slough away flakes and dead skin cells but too much exfoliation can, in fact, leave the skin ever dryer, leaving it to look dull and lifeless. Exfoliate twice to three times a week with a gentle exfoliator for best results.

4. Switching Skincare Too Often
Your epidermis is very delicate and changing products as often as you change your sheets can throw off your skin’s pH levels. Stick with a product line for at least three months to start seeing real results and introduce new products gradually. Similarly, skin care brands generally create their products to work together so you will often find your best results when you use a complete range.

5. Forgetting SPF
Living in Australia, we just can’t stress this point enough. Sun damage ages your skin like nothing else and you will grow to regret it if you neglect your SPF. We completely understand that sometimes sunscreens feel too harsh and oily on the face but our Hydrating Sunscreen is enriched with vitamins that protect and nourish.

6. Neglecting Cream
Often women who suffer from oily skin think they don’t need moisturiser. Wrong! Moisture from oil is different from the moisture we get from creams and, just like if you over-cleanse, if you neglect your cream your skin will react to being dried out by creating more oil! If you’ve got oily skin, try our Mattifying Oily Skin Care Cream. It is light, non-greasy and helps to control oiliness while hydrating.

How to Treat Acne Scars: Adult Acne Part Three

If you read part one and two of our adult acne series, you’re probably about ready to hear all about how you can prevent and treat acne scarring.

Of course the best way to prevent acne scars from occurring is to do everything you can to prevent acne in the first place. Unfortunately, sometimes no matter what we do we are left with scars after a breakout but there are plenty of ways you can speed up the healing process and dramatically decrease the appearance of scars.

1. Protect Yourself from the Sun
Find a moisturiser and/or foundation that contains UV protection for everyday and if you’re planning on being exposed to the sun for an extended period of time, up the sun-protection ante with an SPF 30. Our Hydrating Sunscreen is perfect for the face, not only does it protect from harmful UVA and UVB rays but it is enriched with Vitamins E, C, and B so your skin will feel the benefits big time.

2.   Prevent inflammation
When acne does appear, treat it as soon as possible and try to prevent inflammation by steering clear of anything that could irritate the skin. Our antibacterial, decongesting Soothing Propolis Concentrate will help calm and heal active breakouts. Apply to any red, irritated breakouts after cleansing and toning in the evening.

3. Invest in a Derma Roller
Derma Rollers are like mini paint rollers with tiny acupuncture needles. As you roll your derma roller gently over the skin, it creates tiny pin pricks which trick the skin into thinking its damaged to encourage collagen production, meaning the skin will heal faster.

4. Try Glycolic and Hyaluronic Acids
They may sound scary but acids can be extremely beneficial to the skin. Our Renewing Glycocides Cream helps increase cell turnover and soften scarring while stimulating deep repair of proteins.

5. Invest in Power Repair Products
Our Power Repair products do exactly that – repair. The Refining Marine DNA Concentrate and Refining Marine DNA Cream help refine and smooth the skin’s surface by swelling surface skin cells. You’ll be seriously impressed with the results.

6. See a Pro
Find your nearest spa or salon and talk to them about your scarring. There are professional peels and treatments that can help to speed up the healing process and see you on your way to smooth skin.
