What really happens to your skin while you sleep

Who doesn’t feel better after a good night’s sleep?

It makes a huge difference to our overall wellbeing but our “beauty sleep” is also very important for our skin and the key to a glowing complexion! Sleep is known to dramatically reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) which in itself is a great reason to hit the bed and ensure we get enough rest. But what exactly happens to our skin at night while we are in blissful slumber?

Pevonia Australia - Sleep

Sleep prevents breakouts and allergic reactions. It aids your body in fighting existing skin conditions. When you are sleep deprived, increased inflammatory response shows up as acne breakouts, increased sensitivity, and dermatitis reactions. The more you sleep, your chances of warding off skin conditions are higher.

To wake up to calmer skin, we recommend: RS2 Concentrate. Like “ice” to reduce redness and inflammation. It soothes and calms while strengthening fragile skin.

Sleep makes your skin look younger. With enough sleep, your body is able to produce more collagen and hyaluronic acid – the molecules that give the skin its youthful glow and elasticity. If you want to look younger, always make sure you get sufficient rest. It’s the exact reason why we look fresh after 8 hours of sleep!

To wake up to plumper, firmer skin, we recommend: Stem Cells Intensive SerumThe ultimate cell rejuvenator. Densifies the epidermis to soften lines and “elasticize” the skin.

Sleep prevents puffy and dark undereyes. The body’s hydration rebalances while we sleep. Our skin is moisturised while excess water is processed for removal. When the body is sleeping, it produces antidiuretic hormone (ADH) and Aldosterone, the hormones that give us the ability to hold our urine while sleeping. With the help of ADH and aldosterone, the body is able to properly regulate water in our body. Consequently, sleep deprivation results in poor water balance, leading to puffy and dark undereyes, as well as dryness and wrinkles.

To reduce puffy eyes and dark circles, we recommend: EyeRenew™ Conceal & De-Age TreatmentIt reawakens dull eye contour, illuminates and brightens eye area, and repairs aging signs like lines and wrinkles. Pevonia Australia Active Formulas

Uninterrupted sleep helps repair damaged cells. While you sleep, your growth hormones repair your damaged cells, transforming your skin’s texture to soft, finer complexion. This can only be achieved in deeper phases of sleep which means short, shallow sleep does not help in the natural restoration and healing process. Without sleep, cell degeneration and aging process accelerates.

To wake up to finer, softer skin, we recommend: Micro-Retinol Essential Serum. It evens both skin’s texture and tone to give skin a more youthful appearance and fabulous glow.

Sleep helps us manage our weight, which is also great for our skin. When we sleep, we feel less hungry. Why? Our body produces Leptin, the hormone that inhibits hunger. Having regular sleep enables the body to effectively manage weight, preventing stretch marks and uneven skin tone. So the next time you need to decide whether to gobble or to snooze, if you want to manage your weight, pick the latter.

To wake up to lighter, brighter skin, we recommend: Lumablanc Cream. It progressively lightens dark patches and exfoliates skin, reducing appearance of dark spots.

Make sure your skin gets the most out of your night time rest. Get enough sleep by establishing a bedtime schedule. Add active formulas at night, when your cells will benefit the most, to help win back your youthful glow. Consider it a treat to yourself! Youthful, glowing skin will follow.

Hyaluronic Acid with that?

Pevonia Organic Skincare Australia - Hyaluronic Acid with thatYou may have heard of the ingredient Hyaluronic Acid. Beauty editors, bloggers and skin care aficionados are currently having a serious love affair with it. It’s not a new ingredient, in fact, it has been a staple in skin care and makeup for the last couple of decades. However technical innovation has changed it for the better.

Once described as “ineffective” by the medical profession as an ingredient that does little for anti-ageing due to its large molecule, recent advances in cosmetic manufacturing have resulted in lower molecular structure which can penetrate the skin and help stimulate your own collagen production.

With all that said, the more hyaluronic acid you put into your skin, the more youthful you’ll look—and now there are a number of ways to load up from lotions to serums to creams.

Hyaluronic acid is a bit of a misnomer. First, it’s not actually an acid. It’s a sugar. Also, it’s a sponge. Every molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. But one thing about hyaluronic acid that’s absolutely true: It’s a skin-care wonder.

“I’ve been using this product for 2 years now and can’t live without it! It’s wonderful… a little goes a long way, and it’s not greasy or heavy! Love, Love it!”

By RM

“Love it. The smell is amazing!”

By Jhalber

“This product is perfect for me. It is difficult for me to find a night-time moisturizer/anti-aging serum that fits my unique skin. I’m turning 44 this month, but still tend towards oily skin and occasional breakouts every once in a while. I’ve finally found something that gets the job done without feeling greasy nor clogging my pores and causing breakouts. It has a nice smell, too! It only takes a few small dabs dotted around your face and massaged in, so the small container actually lasts a good while – a good buy.”

Cream vs Serum

Which skincare do you prefer to use, cream or serum, and why?

Some will be quick to say it’s CREAM because it’s what they’ve been using for the longest time and it works. They’re right.

Some will instantaneously say SERUM because it’s the trend these days and it’s really, really effective. They’re right too!

What’s the difference between a cream and a serum? Which one is more effective? Do you need both in your skincare regime?

  1. A serum is a high concentration of active ingredients. It contains the most potent dose of antioxidants and peptides. A serum is formulated liquid-like to be easily absorbed into the skin and because it’s lightweight, it suits all skin types.
  2. Cream is still the most popular skin care product. Because creams contain oil, it’s nourishing and moisturising. It may contain specific actives that that address specific skin concerns.
  3. Which is more effective? Cream and serum do different things. A cream is better at moisturising while a serum is better at immediately delivering specific treatment actives.
  4. Do you need both in your skincare regime? Definitely! Apply serum first to let the antioxidants and peptides work its way deep into your skin for immediate skin therapy. Apply cream after a few minutes to infuse your skin with more moisture.

Some use either of the two but we strongly suggest you use both for maximum results!
