Do you suffer from facial redness? Lifestyle tips for sensitive skin

Does your skin react to everything and anything? Are you prone to breakouts? Do you find you get easily flushed especially in hot or cold temperatures? Do you have broken capillaries or suffer from sensitive skin irritation and inflammation?

If you’ve answered yes to any or all of the above, we feel you, and so do millions of others!

Pevonia on Facial Redness Sensitive Skin

Unfortunately any number of things can contribute to skin sensitivity some of which are out of our control – genetics, the environment, the weather, our hormones, the water – but by following these 10 simple lifestyle tips we promise they can make a huge difference to not only your complexion but your confidence too!

  1. Say no to hot water

Try not to wash your face with hot water. This will not only cause your skin to feel flushed and in turn aggravated. The hot water also strips your skin of the healthy oils which we desperately need.

Luke warm water will be your friend.

  1. Get your sensitive skin care routine down pat

I know you’re on the search for that perfect product, the one that is right for your sensitive skin but don’t continually trial product after product back to back. This will aggravate your skin and mess with its natural pH balance. Try to stick to one skincare regime using the same range. Keep things simple.

Try; Pevonia’s RS2 range, specifically created to alleviate rosacea symptoms, or as a preventative for those with sensitive skin, the range – cleanser, toner, serum and moisturiser – effectively relieve discomfort by strengthening capillaries, soothing, hydrating and rendering skin evenly toned and visibly calmed.

Pevonia RS2 - Rosacea Sensitive Skin

  1. Go natural

Using natural skincare will not only improve the health of your skin but also contribute to a safer environment. Try to opt for natural skincare products containing soothing, calming and nurturing ingredients such as chamomile, calendula, aloe, lavender and propolis. These will help overcome skin sensitivities.

  1. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise

Ensure you moisturise every single day, morning and night. Moisturising helps to lock in water and prevents sensitive skin from drying gut.

  1. Don’t over expose yourself to the sun

This can damage your already sensitive skin by making it more prone to flare ups. Also keep reactions at bay by opting for a fragrance-free, natural sunscreen. Best to wear a hat too!

  1. Red wine can be the enemy (eek)

If you’re like me you’ll love a glass of wine in the evenings, but try to steer clear of red. Why red you say? Red wine promotes the opening of blood vessels in the skin and is a histamine releaser which causes redness and flushing, it also deprives the skin of vital vitamins.

  1. Hydration is key

Drink plenty of water. Water not only rehydrates you but also flushes away toxins and replenishes skin tissue. Drinking enough water can fight off skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema and rosacea all common skin sensitivities.

  1. We are what we eat

Eat lots of green leafy vegetables and foods rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids. Foods rich with Vitamin C and E are beneficial for the skin as they not only serve as excellent antioxidants they also promote a healthy immune system. Think broccoli, kale, spinach, avocados, fish, nuts, seeds, blueberries, strawberries…the list goes on.

  1. Always remove makeup before going to bed

Sleeping with a face full of makeup can and will result in skin irritability and breakouts. Makeup not only traps dead skin cells it also blocks our pores and when pores are blocked the skin can’t breathe and therefore regenerate!

  1. Sleep more, stress less

Of course this is easier said than done! Especially if you have children, work long hours or generally have a lot going on in your life. But…if it’s possible to put your head down even half an hour earlier at night it’ll make all the difference and allow your skin to repair and regenerate and your brain to recharge!

Hollywood Skin Secrets (skincare routine of the stars)

Pevonia Botanica Australia Organic Skin Care skincare holloywood skin secrets

Who says it’s all in the genes?

Those who say they were born with great skin could be partly correct but nothing beats an impeccable skincare routine. We’ve curated Hollywood stars’ skin secrets. We’re pretty sure you’ve heard these tips before but we’d like to include our professional advice and recommendations:

Sunscreen

Shelly Goodstein, a 48-year-old Ford model and the author of Face This, says she’s a big fan of sunscreen. In her book, she listed down beauty secrets she learned while being a model but on top of the list is keeping the base healthy and protected day and night.

This works: Sunscreen is absolutely the most effective anti-aging product available. UV light is the #1 cause of premature skin aging so it’s important that you prevent those harmful rays from damaging your skin round the clock. Include in your skincare routine products with action ingedients like retinol, vitamin C, peptides, and salicylic acid, and use a moisturiser, and sunscreen 365 days a year. We recommend the firming and intensely hydrating Stem Cells Phyto Elite range and sun protection Pevonia Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30. If you get red, hot flashes, this works – Pevonia RS2 Rosacea rangeDo you suffer from facial redness? Meet the celebrities who do too!

Beauty Sleep

This is an old tip but very effective. Gwyneth Paltrow swears by this age old skincare secret and Jennifer Lopez does a full 8hr recommended sleep at night. Ashley Olsen has stressed that unless she gets a full night of sleep, it shows.

This works: At night, while your body rests and you are at sleep, your skin is regenerating new skin cells. Help your under eye area be on tip top shape and wrinkle-free by applying
Pevonia Evolutive Eye Cream just before you sleep. In the morning, let the Pevonia C Evolutive Eye Gel reduce puffiness and dark circles. Evening habits to incorporate in your skincare routine

Exercise

Rihanna‘s secret to her flawless, cellulite free skin? Here it is, “I love swimming, [and doing] anything in the ocean…that’s very, very good for your body.” Sex and The City lead star Sara Jessica Parker says, “I do yoga whenever I can, and I do like feeling fit and healthy.”

This works: Sweat it all out! Frequent a Pevonia spa for a cellulite treatment to keep those nasty butt dimples at bay! At home, try this powerful duo – Pevonia Svelt Gel during the day and Pevonia Svelt Cream at night.

Moisturise

We’ll never get tired of telling you again and again, MOISTURISE! These TV and big screen actresses know their game:

“Probably the top three things would be: moisturize, sleep and work on the eyebrows. Those are the three things I try to focus on in my daily life!” – Emma Stone

“I moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. No matter how late it is, when I get home, I take the time to clean and moisturize my face. I’m a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you really won’t need a lot of makeup.” – Demi Moore

Eat healthy food

“I think the quality of your skin is genetic, but if you eat right and exercise, that helps keep the elasticity in your skin and that youthful, healthy glow.” – Halle Berry

This works: And yes, seductress Halle Berry’s secret is a combination of exercise and healthy food. The simplest and easiest way to effectively hydrate your skin cells, which keeps them moist and healthy-looking, is by using an alcohol-free toner and sealing that in with a skin serum that contains hyaluronic acid. We recommend Pevonia lotions and toners and Pevonia C Complexe booster.
