Beauty Collective - Improve your Skin Ten fold

HOW A GREAT CLEANSER WILL IMPROVE YOUR SKIN TEN FOLD!

Here at Pevonia we are strong advocates of cleansing; after all it is one of the most effective ways to achieve skin that’s healthier, clearer and more radiant.

A quick swipe of a face wipe or micellar water might seem sufficient, we are all tempted after a long day, but taking the time to remove your make-up and really clean your skin will ensure that you see visible improvements in your complexion day after day, cleanse after cleanse.

Read on to discover why cleansers are the foundation to any great skincare regime, plus the one skincare tool you’re not using, but definitely should be…

1. THE FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT STEP

Whether your skincare regime consists of two or five products (eight if you’ve ever tried a Korean skincare routine) it should always start with a cleanser. Without this step impurities will cling to your skin and dead skin cells will build up, blocking pores and therefore impeding the skin’s ability to produce sebum (skin’s natural conditioner), making your skin prone to breakouts, dry patches and dullness.

2. HELLO FINER MORE REFINED SKIN

Without regular cleansing the pores will continue to become congested, leading to breakouts and a lacklustrecomplexion. Washing your face every morning and evening will remove impurities that have built up as a result of pollutants, bacteria, dead skin cells and sebum, decongest the pores and reveal clearer, healthier skin.

3. THE TOOL YOU MIGHT BE MISSING

The humble muslin cloth. They might not be the top of your skincare wishlist, but these unsung heroes are one of the best ways to gently exfoliate your skin daily and ensure product is completely removed. After applying your cleanser, simply soak the muslin cloth in warm water and sweep in upwards motions away from the face to leave your skin looking and feeling, softer and smoother.

4. ENHANCE YOUR MOISTURISER

But cleansing is more than just cleaning your skin; it’s also the best way to prep your skin for other skincare products. This is because congested pores can not only cause breakouts but also prevent the absorption of other skincare products, cleansing daily will help to clear your pores and ensure that the active ingredients in your moisturisers and serums can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin.

It is also essential to find the best facial cleanser for your skin concerns, a product that works with and not against your skin type. We love the Essential Line Cleansers, which are gentle and water-based, so they dissolve impurities effectively yet wash off easily for clearer, brighter and more youthful looking skin.

August Gift With Purchase Winter Essentials: Exfoliate and Hydrate

Did you know that exfoliation can help you get the most out of your serums and moisturisres? It’s true! Sloughing away dead skin cells helps to prevent clogged pores and clears the way for the serums and moisturisers you use to be fully absorbed.

Our Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is one of our best-selling products. It combines Jojoba Beads, French Rose Essential Oil, Chamomile and Soapwork to gently polish, prevent dead skin cell build-up and prevent clogged pores and blackhead formation all while refining skin’s texture. It’s mild enough for all skin types and is the perfect addition to any skin care regime, especially as winter comes to a close and dead skin build up is at its pinnacle. Incorporating twice-weekly exfoliation into your routine will help bring back the glow that winter robbed your skin of and will mean your moisturiser is able to fully hydrate your skin.



We want you to experience first hand how regular exfoliation brings out the best in your moistursier so this month’s Gift With Purchase offer combines the two. For the month of August*, purchase any Essential Line Cream and you’ll receive a FREE 50mL Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser!

The Benefits of Caviar in Skincare and Pevonia’s Timeless Repair Range

Caviar. It’s the appetizer that’s served up at only the fanciest of parties, the latest thing to inspire manicures and the one of the star products in our Timeless Repair range.
While the thought of slathering caviar on your face may not be appealing at first, we’re pretty sure that once you read on and discover all the benefits of this marine miracle, you’ll be more than ready to embrace it in our Timeless Repair range.

Did you know?
The word ‘caviar’ stems from the Persian word for ‘eggs’ and traditionally only refers to roe from wild sturgeon in the Caspian and Black Seas (Beluga, Ossetra and Sevruga caviars) but today, the word is used to describe the roe of various other fish.
These tiny raw fish eggs are one of the most expensive foods money can buy and has an incredibly rich and long history.

What can Caviar do for my skin?
Caviar has some serious skin benefits, especially when it comes to anti-ageing. It contains;
– Amino-acids – these link together to form proteins which are essential for skin elasticity and firmness. They help the skin hold moisture, keeping it hydrated and more youthful looking.
– Oligo-elements – provide enzymatic activity and cellular oxygenation
– Phospholipids  – encourage cellular health and regeneration

The Why, How and Which of Face Masks for Your Skin Type

Most of us have a daily skin care routine that we don’t stray from but there are a few weekly or twice weekly extras that can take your skin from good to glowing perfection in very little time. One of those is a face mask.

These little beauties are easy to use, have multiple benefits and help skin stay flawless between spa visits but there are still so many people out there who neglect them completely! Here’s the why, how and what of face masks to get you started…

WHY use a Face Mask?
Day-to-day cleansing and regular exfoliation will help to keep your skin in good condition but a face mask penetrates deeper into the pores, drawing out impurities from beneath the top layers of the skin. By removing impurities, unclogging the pores and providing a deeper clean, a mask can also enhance the performance of the products you use day-to-day.
Regular facials at a salon or spa will dramatically improve the appearance of your skin but if you can only afford, or only have time for, a professional treatment every so often, a face mask will help maintain your skin between visits.

HOW to use a Face Mask?
To some degree, the how of face masks depends on the mask you’re using. Generally speaking, a mask should be applied after cleansing and toning. Apply a thin layer to the face and neck, avoiding the sensitive eye area, and leave on for ten minutes. Rinse the face with cool water and follow with lotion and cream.
This cleansing ritual will take less than a half hour total but it will do your skin wonders. Not only that, but it gives you a chance to take a little ‘me’ time without having to go out. Both you and your skin will feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
