Building Your Perfect Skincare Routine

It can be really confusing to know what to do to get amazing skin, there’s a lot of different suggestions, advice, products and recommends around. You want to take care of your skin, whether you have acne or not, because your skin is the largest organ on your body that protects you from the sun, wind, and rain.

Who doesn’t want great-looking skin? Here, we’ve created an easy day-to-night routine.

1. Start by knowing your skin type. Then you’ll know how to take care of it.

Dry skin is flaky, scaly, or rough. Oily skin is shiny, greasy, and may have big pores. Combination skin is dry in some spots (cheeks) and oily in others (forehead, nose, and chin). Sensitive skin may sting, burn, or itch after you use some makeup or other products. Normal skin is balanced, clear, and not sensitive.

2. Cleaning

You can dry your skin by washing it too much, so once a day is fine for most people. In the morning, rinse your face with warm water. Use a soft towel to pat it — not rub it — dry. At night, washing with a cleanser or gentle soap helps get rid of the day’s dirt and makeup. If you exercise, you may want to wash your face afterward with a gentle cleanser. Sweat can clog your pores and make acne worse.

3. Moisturize

You may think you’re too young to need moisturizer or your skin is too oily, but all skin needs moisture. Moisturizers help keep your skin from drying out. Use it every day, no matter what skin type you have. If you have acne or your skin is oily, find a moisturizer that is lightweight and oil-free, so it doesn’t block your pores.

4. Put on Sunscreen

The sun can damage your skin in only 15 minutes. Even though you’re young, you can get skin cancer. Look for sunscreen that works against both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of at least 30. Wear it every day, even if it’s not sunny and even if it’s cold. The sun’s rays can reflect off water, sand, and snow. Reapply every two hours.

5. Don’t Wear Makeup to Bed

Leaving makeup on your skin can clog your pores and cause acne. Use a gentle cleanser or makeup remover to wash it off. Use a soft wash cloth or cotton pads. If you use acne medicine, use it when your face is clean.

6. Food and Sleep for Healthy Skin

Keep your skin healthy by eating smart. Eat lots of veggies, fruits, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. Choose lean proteins like chicken, fish, lean meat, beans, and eggs. Watch foods that are high in cholesterol, trans fats, saturated fats, salt, and sugar. And get plenty of sleep for good health and to avoid dark circles, fine lines, dull skin, and other side effects of bad rest.

How Stress Affects Skin

Your skin can bear the brunt of a stressful life. Stress levels are higher than ever these days and stress affects more than just your energy levels. It can directly impact on the health and appearance of your skin and body.

Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also make it harder for skin problems to heal. Have you ever noticed that when you are stressed, you break out more? This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, which tells your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skins problems.

8 Ways to Reduce the Effects of Stress on Your Skin

1. Don’t neglect your skin. Take care of your skin, even if you’re tired or stressed

2. Get regular exercise. It’s good for your skin and the rest of your body..

Introducing Pevonia Botanica new Stem Cells Phyto-Elite™ collection

In the quest for the ultimate anti-aging solution, plant stem cells are the leaders in skincare innovation, results, and benefits. Pevonia®, a worldwide leader in professional spa skincare, introduces advancements in plant stem cell technology with the new Stem Cells Phyto-Elite™ collection.

A breakthrough in phyto-biology with proprietary advanced formulas, Stem Cells Phyto-Elite™ features two stem cell sources, Argan Tree and European Comfrey Root, which are proven to visibly repair aging skin. Featuring a Multi-Active Foaming Cleanser, an Intensive Serum, and an Intensive Cream, the skincare collection sets higher standards in cellular regeneration by getting to the root cause of skin aging.

With its two unique stem cell sources and a concentration of stem cells that is five to ten times higher than what is currently available, the Pevonia Stem Cells Phyto-Elite™ collection reduces the look of wrinkles while increasing firmness and providing smoother and more radiant looking skin. Each product in the collection enables maximum absorbency and faster repair activity, plus additional anti-oxidant, protective, and anti-aging benefits for the skin.

As we age, the epidermal layer of the skin becomes thinner, rougher, drier and uneven, as skin cells turn over at a slower rate than in youth. Plant stem cells provide a natural solution for aging skin, as these cells are able to repair skin tissue and prolong the lifecycle of human skin cells. To create the Stem Cells Phyto-Elite™ Collection, Pevonia® looked to two specific natural resources for skin rejuvenation and repair – the Argan Tree and European Comfrey Root.

Stem Cells from the Argan tree improve the regenerative capacity of dermal skin cells, providing excellent support and elasticity to the skin from deep within while also improving the extra cellular matrix structure to reduce wrinkles. Stem cells from the European Comfrey Root, also known as Symphytum Stem Cells, work at the epidermal layer of skin, speeding up skin renewal and acting as a new growth bonding agent to improve epidermal thickness and naturally increase Hyaluronic Acid content, which lends strength and flexibility to the skin.

The new Pevonia Stem Cells Phyto-Elite™ collection works from deep within the skin’s layers, starting at the dermis, to deliver healthy, ageless looking skin. The collection includes:

1. Multi-Active Foaming Cleanser

2. Intensive Serum

For use after the Multi-Active Foaming Cleanser. A rejuvenating booster providing smoothing and hydrating benefits, this serum protects and energizes cells while accelerating the repair of aging skin. Best used morning and night.

3. Intensive Cream

3932-11_50J_Crm_StemCellCreamCR_CM

A potent anti-aging moisturizer, this daily intensive cream hydrates, brightens, and protects while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles at the source. Best used morning and night.

All Pevonia® products are made with natural and organic extracts, and are alcohol free, gluten free, paraben free, lanolin free, mineral oil free, PABA free, sodium lauryl sulfate free, non-GMO and Mother Earth Approved. Pevonia believes the most powerful ingredients in skincare come from the safest source – nature

Lawan Selulit!

Perempuan selalu memimpikan memiliki kulit mulus seperti yang terpampang pada halaman mode majalah dan sebagainya. Namun satu yang tidak bisa dihindari, adalah hadirmya selulit di beberapa bagian tubuh. Sebagian besar selulit memang lebih sering timbul di tubuh perempuan dibandingkan dengan laki-laki, hal ini dikarenakan perempuan memiliki lebih banyak timbunan lemak.

Selulit itu normal. Meski kehadirannya membuat kulit menjadi tidak mulus dan tidak menarik. Setelah mengalami masa pupertas, siapa pun bisa mendapatkan selulit. Oleh karenanya, banyak ditemui perempuan  muda namun sudah mengalami selulit. Seiring dengan bertambahnya usia, elastisitas kulit ikut menurun dan cenderung pula kehilangan otot tubuh dan mendapatkan lebih banyak lemak, yang semua faktor tersebut akan meningkatkan terjadinya selulit.

Selulit memang tidak bisa dihilangkan, tapi bisa disamarkan. Tidak ada makanan ajaib yang bisa menghilangkannya.  Diet yang baik dan mencegah kelebihan berat badan adalah salah satu cara untuk tidak memperparah timbulnya selulit. Pada saat tubuh kehilangan banyak lemak, selulit tidak akan nampak, namun ia akan kembali terlihat jika berat badan kembali seperti semula.

Selulit juga bisa diatasi secara alami dengan 5 langkah berikut:

1. Olahraga

Olahraga secara teratur bisa membakar lemak di daerah paha atau dengan jogging di pagi hari selama 10-20 menit.
