Post-Summer Skin Tips

Pevonia Skin Tips

Throughout summer skin specialists and skin care companies emphasize the importance of wearing sun protection to help prevent skin cancer and delay the skin aging process, however post-summer skin care is also vitally important as your skin steps into repair mode.

You may have diligently applied sun protection all summer and taken every precaution to look after your skin.  Despite this your skin was exposed to damaging UV rays and you may be seeing the tell-tale signs; skin dullness, dehydration, dark pigment patches and breakouts to name a few.  

Here are some tips to take you into autumn with a healthier skin:

Exfoliate

Warm weather causes the oils in our skin to emulsify and travel more easily to the top of our skin.  That’s why your skin often feels oilier in summer.  The oil acts like a glue to our skin cells, binding them together tightly and preventing them from naturally shedding from our skin to make way for new fresher skin cells.  The build-up of dead skin cells leads to other problems: it blocks the pores which can lead to breakouts, it creates a formidable barrier to moisture penetration and it makes the skin look dull and lackluster.  We need to exfoliate from head to toe!

Face

It’s important to be gentle with post-summer skin as it tends to be more reactive.  We recommend the Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream.  Packed with enzymes of pineapple and papaya, this Pevonia favourite gently digests dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, more vibrant complexion.  Simply apply to clean skin, work it with warm wet fingertips to release the encapsulated enzymes, allow it to sit and do its magic then rinse away after 5 minutes.  It smells divine and leaves your skin with a lovely, luminous glow!

Body

We love (and I mean seriously LOVE!) De-aging Tropical Saltmousse.  This wonder product leaves your skin feeling like you’ve just stepped out of the most beautiful tropical spa!  Enriched with exfoliating and tropical ingredients, you can choose either Mango and Passionfruit or Pineapple and Papaya, it sloughs away dulling skin cells and leaves the skin feeling so, so soft.  And as if that is not enough it also releases negative ions to counteract environmental skin damage.  Simply wet your skin in the shower, lather the scrub into your hands with water until you achieve an unctuous, rich foam then exfoliate until the grains begin to break down.  Then simply rinse away.

Feet

This is the area of the body that generally shows the most wear and tear after summer. Silky Foot Peel will help to break down stubborn callous while exfoliating dead skin cells and eliminating  dryness.   The exfoliating Salicylic Acid and Pumice powder help to peel away roughness and let you step out with smoother, silky-soft feet. Use it once or twice a week by applying a thin layer of Silky Foot Peel all over your feet and soles. Work it gently until it peels off and then rinse your feet. The fresh peppermint oil will leave your skin tingly and revitalised!

 

Drench your skin

Now that we’ve removed that stubborn skin barrier it’s time to drench your skin with moisture.  You may need to step up to a richer moisturizer formulations for autumn and incorporate a repairing Aromatherapy Face Oil in the evening.  If you work in air-conditioning,  a spritz every couple of hours with a moisture binding skin spray such as Phyto-Aromatic Mist will help to replenish lost moisture. For autumn we love the Collagen Power Repair Line. The marine collagen in this formulation attracts and binds water to your skin keeping it dewy and deeply hydrated, it also creates the perfect environment for fibroblast cells to weave new skin repairing proteins.

Fade it

If you have managed to get too much sun this summer you may have some deeper sun damage that reveals itself in dark, unsightly patches.  This is a build-up of the skin pigment melanin and the good news is that it is treatable.  We recommend a three step approach; exfoliation, fading and protection.  Using a weekly scrub will soften the discoloration, however, for faster results you may want to include an AHA formulation into your evening skin care program.  Glycocides Cream helps to break down the bonds between skin cells and encourages those darker skin cells to shed faster. When used in combination with Lightening Gel you’ll notice a gradual fading over just a few weeks. Don’t forget to keep up with your sun protection though!  Even autumn sunshine can cause damage to your skin.

10 Tips On Rehydrating Your Skin This Summer

We’ve got an ideal weather this spring but it won’t be too long until summer comes. We’ll all start planning our escapades and most of us fond of sun and sand will surely hit the beach. While we’re busy prepping up our beach bods, let’s make sure we don’t take our skin for granted. Here are some tips on how to rehydrate the skin:

  • Spritz Mist.

    spritz mist

You took a short but pretty hot walk this morning to work. Rashes began to sting on your neck, chest, underarm, thighs. Ease yourself of torture by spritzing Pevonia Phyto-Aromatic Mist. No, you can’t use alcohol, it’ll only make the feeling worse. We also do not recommend powder, it will only temporarily ease the pain and will clog the pores. Remember that it’s humid and anything you put on your skin will easily be absorbed.

Because Phyto-Aromatic Mist has Calendula and Chamomile extracts, it has anti-irritant, desensitizing, soothing and healing agents.

  •  Cleanse.

    Cleanse

Use a gentle cleanser without alcohol and artificial fragrance to cleanse, purify, tighten and hydrate the skin. The good thing about Pevonia is it’s all natural thus it doesn’t have harmful chemical that sting. It gently cleanses away the dirt without harming the skin. The pH level is also neutralized, reason why it doesn’t hurt when it gets in contact with wounds or sunburnt skin. Choose a cleanser that’s right for your skin.

  • Control Temperature.

    Hot and Cold

Avoid washing your skin with very hot water as it may aggravate the dryness of the skin. Bathe in water that’s warm enough to calm and relax you, but not too hot to magnify the warm feeling.

  • Moisturize.

    moisturize

The perfect time to moisturize is after bath when our pores are clean and wide open. During this time, our skin easily absorbs moisturizers. Just make sure you are using a moisturizer that fits your skin type.

  • No scrubbing.

    no scrub brush

Deal with sunburnt skin gently. NEVER scrub it with loofah, stones, or exfoliating gloves. You’ll only punish yourself with excruciating pain and you’ll not gain anything from it. Instead, we recommend that you…

  • Exfoliate.

    efoliate

Exfoliating cleansers do just the right amount of pressure and skin polishing. It has natural foaming and cleansing extracts that gently and evenly polishes skin with non-irritating fine grains that helps in slowly getting rid of dead skin cells. The patches will be less and not too visible. Choose an exfoliating cleanser.

  • Shield with Sunscreen.

    sunscreen

Choose a sunscreen that is greaseless so that you can walk around without your face appearing all shiny & sweaty. Pevonia’s Hydrating Sunscreen with SPF 30 is non-greasy cream that protects skin from sunrays, and at the same time works as a skin moisturizer.

  • Drink water

    glass-of-water

Your water intake helps a lot in keeping your skin fresh and supple. Also, with enough water in the body, the healing process is faster. Make sure you gulp down 6-8 glasses a day.

  • Eat fruits

Like what we always say, although eating fruits and drinking water do not give us immediate results, these are part of a long term routine that helps hydrate and soften the skin. Start by taking less soda and drinking more fresh juice.

  • Omega 3

    omega 3

Eat food rich in Omega 3 to boost skin’s suppleness. Omega 3 is found in salmon and trout, and peanuts too. It helps boost the skin’s moisture level, thus easily replacing dead skin cells with new one. Looking for seafood recipes? Click to see must try recipes.
