Exfoliate Your Skin and Achieve a Radiant Glow

Exfoliate for a Radiant Glow

Summer is almost over and we have a few days to go until it’s officially autumn. The weather will be cooler and friendlier. If you’re a beach bum like most Aussies are, you seized every weekend strolling along the beaut seaside. Some have patches of sunburnt skin all over, and some just look like they had a very relaxing holiday! Want to know their secret? EXFOLIATE!

Pevonia - Exfoliate

Do you know how good exfoliation is for your skin? Rubbing it with granules help remove dead cells from the surface, revealing a softer, smoother, and youthful you. It is important that you know what exfoliant to use as there are plenty of products in the market that are too abrasive and do more harm than good. We’re proud to say that Pevonia exfoliants are gentle on the skin but do a great job in getting rid of the dead skin cells. Pick the right exfoliant for you:

ALL SKIN TYPES

Your skin needs a little help every once in a while. A regular cleanser cleanses your face but Pevonia’s Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser has exfoliating jojoba beads, saponaria and chamomile that wash away impurities and toxins. A true bonzer! The beads are finer than what you’ll usually find in regular exfoliants so it’s gentle but truly effective in refining texture and adding glow to your skin.

PROBLEMATIC SKIN

It’s easier to clear the skin of acne with a cleanser that has powerful anti-bacterial properties. Clarigel Exfoliating Cleanser combines Soapwort, Triclosan, Grapefruit Oil, and Citric Acid to gently remove impurities. It helps control breakouts, brightens the skin tone, and refines your skin.

Exfoliation 101: practice weekly for bright, healthy skin

Pevonia Botanica Australia Organic Skincare Girl Reading BookI find many people I speak to know they SHOULD exfoliate their face but manage to skip over this step week after week (myself included at times!). Exfoliation needs to be part of a weekly beauty routine not only to care for your skin but to get the most out of the skincare products you’re spending your hard earned money on.

Like the dead skin cells that build up and need to be removed, let’s break down exfoliation…

Why Exfoliate?

Your skin is constantly generating new cells and sending them to the skin’s surface. As we age cell renewal slows down and the old skin cells start to build up on the skin’s surface which can lead to a dull, rough and dry looking complexion – a look we don’t want reflected in the mirror!

Exfoliation rejuvenates the texture and appearance of skin to reveal a fresh, healthy complexion! Afterwards skin is more receptive to serums, lotions and creams so you can truly enjoy the benefits of your skincare products.

Mechanical vs. Enzymes Exfoliators

A mechanical exfoliator contains granules to gently buff the surface of the skin to remove toxins and impurities. The granules work to soften skin and remove dead cells for a polished glowing complexion.

My pick, the Pevonia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with jojoba beads to decongest pores and smooth the skin’s surface leaving it soft and supple. The beads are enveloped in a creamy water soluble formula with ingredients like Calendula and Horse Chestnut to cleanse, soothe and calm skin.

Enzyme exfoliators dissolve the dead skin cells and work into the deeper layers of the skin. Think of the enzyme like a tiny pack man that eats away the dead cells to deeply cleanse and refresh skin.

My pick (and personal favourite from the Pevonia range) is the Pevonia Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream. This wonder product revitalises my skin leaving it smooth and enviously luminous. The deliciously scented pineapple and papaya enzymes are almost tangible, making this both a treat for my skin and the senses! …can you tell I love it?

How often to exfoliate

Exfoliate 1-3 times per week depending on the type of skin you have. For sensitive skin once a week is perfect, you don’t way to irritate or dehydrate your skin from over exfoliation. 3 times a week is fantastic for thick, tougher skin.

So go out there and get exfoliatin’ to see the benefits for yourself!

How to Use Enzymo-Sphérides Peeling Cream

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.
