The must have’s to keep your skin glowing all winter long

Pevonia Organic Skincare Australia skin care winter productsOur sun-kissed summer facade has long since faded, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept dull, lifeless-looking skin all winter long. This season we are not only on a mission to combat dryness and keep hydrated, but also to maintain a natural, healthy glow. From vitamin-rich serums to the best of facial exfoliators to skin brightening boosters, these are the products we need to include in our winter-proof radiance routine.

We all know that cooler weather plays havoc on our skin. Changes in temperature, heating, hot showers, cold air, wind dehydrate and devitalise our skin often leaving it rough, dry and sometimes flaky (great!) this means we have to get ahead of the game and step up our skincare TLC.

Pevonia offers great solutions to ensure your skin remains soft and hydrated from head to toe. Not sure where to start? We listed our fan and professional favourites to help you keep your skin glowing all winter long.

  1. Exfoliation is key

Make sure you shed those dry dead skin cells as a build-up is no good for anyone! A regular scrub (think twice per week) using a gentle exfoliator will make all the difference. Try Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. This rather lovely, gentle exfoliator will not only remove unwanted dead nasties but will promise to have your skin impeccably clean, soft and radiant in a matter of moments.

  1. Step up the moisture

Switch to a more nourishing moisturiser and if you haven’t already introduce a serum to your beauty repertoire. Skin is extra thirsty in winter and will benefit from a quenching dose of moisture in the form of Intensifier Collagen & Myoxy Caviar and Marine Collagen Cream, the dynamic duo! Apply a few drops of the intensifier (serum) beneath the moisturizer for a dewy radiant complexion while the Collagen Cream seals in vital moisture and imparts comfort for your skin…all day long.

  1. Night nurturing

Before bed lather your face with a vitamin-rich serum (just as you’d take a multi-vitamin tablet for health & wellbeing). Try Vitaminic Concentrate. The radical treatment for skin lacking lustre combats dehydration with a burst of vitamins A, E You’re your complexion really will look brighter and rejuvenated by morning.

  1. Love your eyes

One particular area quick to suffer the effects of winter are the eyes. Often taken for granted, this sensitive area is usually the first to show signs of aging and lack of care. Drench the eye contours with super hydrating Eye Contour rich in Collagen and skin firming elastin. Dehydration lines will be a thing of the past!

  1. Body Love

Lather your body as you would your face, with plenty of rich cream and pay particular attention to super dry areas such as elbows, knees and heels.

Applying your body lotion/cream in the bathroom following a warm bath or shower is a great way to ensure your body readily absorbs the moisture as the warmth in the air will help open your pores thus locking in the moisture. Try Preserve Body Moisturiser. Rich in oils, vitamins and phyto-extracts which restore the skins essential lipids, leaving it soft and hydrated.

  1. Safeguard skin

Just because it isn’t hot (and potentially sunny, blue skies) doesn’t mean you should slack off with the sunscreen. A super hydrating sunscreen in the winter months will benefit your ailing dry skin. Try Hydrating Sunscreen SPF

Radical Bliss!

Review: Pevonia Anti-Free Radical Facial

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bless me girls and boys for I have sinned! It has been eight months since my last facial! So when the girls at Spa Pevonia invited me in for a treatment I jumped at the opportunity.  What a lovely way to start the week! I’ve just arrived back at my desk and can’t wipe the smile and the glow from my pampered face.

I arrived 15 minutes early for my treatment as requested and after being greeted was introduced to my therapist who asked me to complete a health questionnaire. My lovely therapist went through this with me thoroughly, asking me numerous questions to determine the best treatment and finally recommended the Anti-Free Radical Facial.  Unlike many who complain about this lengthy process I actually enjoyed it as it made me feel reassured that not only would the treatment be safe for me but would provide the best possible results for my skin type.

I was then escorted to a changing area and asked to put on a white fluffy gown and slippers and wait in the relaxation lounge.  The sun was shining in and the music soothed my senses, I was just finishing my delicious fruity tea (I might have had a fresh muffin too) and my therapist came to escort me to my cosy treatment room where I instantly felt relaxed.

I was made comfortable on a divine bed with heat packs soothing me in all the right places and covered in a soft heated blanket….bliss….and my therapist began the treatment.

First she cleansed my skin with a soothing emulsion that was removed with warm fragrant towels.  Once cleansed a lovely warm “oaty” enzyme peel was applied and kept warm under steam, while this was working to remove my dry, dead winter skin cells my therapist massaged my arms with a cool geranium scented oil.  Once again warm aromatic towels were used to remove my enzyme peel and my skin already felt fresh and vibrant.

A delicious-scented, silky oil was then applied to my skin and for the next 15 minutes I was massaged all over the face and neck.  Did I mention the bliss? My skin literally drank the exquisite concoction which I was told contained skin rejuvenating vitamins A and E which counteract free radical skin damage and brightening mandarin.  All sounded and smelt very good to me.  When the massage was finished (I wished it could have gone on forever) my therapist applied an amazing mask that was thick and warm and invigorating, the peppermint and lavender combination was amazing!  The warmth remained as the mask set and then cooled to a refreshing chill.  My therapist explained it helped to aid in the penetration of the vitamins and increased the circulation.  While this was on my scalp was massaged and I think I may have slept (me snoring?! Noooo!) The mask was removed in one easy piece and my skin felt incredible, awake and so incredibly hydrated.  Protective products were used to seal in all the goodies and protect me from the damaging rays of the sun and my treatment was complete.  I mentally vowed to come every month for a facial treatment.

More relaxing in the relaxation lounge, they told me I could stay as long as I liked, and I was ready to face my working week.

I still can’t get over how baby soft my skin feels and how vibrant it looked after this treatment. I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers winter dehydration or even if you skin just feels “out of balance”.
