Whilst it’s hard to believe it’s Winter here in gorgeous Yamba, for so many of us, the crisp, clear days of winter bring more than just a rosy glow to the cheeks. They can also bring uncomfortable dryness to the skin of the face, hands, and feet. For some people, the problem is worse than just a general tight, dry feeling: They get skin so dry it results in flaking, cracking, even eczema (in which the skin becomes inflamed).
As soon as you turn the heat on indoors, the skin starts to dry out. Coupled with a severe reduction in humidity, cold winds, hotter showers and for some of us, a more sedentary lifestyle, and well….you get the picture?
Sound familiar? Read on to get our top products and tips for boosting your winter skin care regimen, so that your skin stays hydrated and healthy through these colder winter months.
Firstly, limit shower time, and use warm (not hot!) water. Hot water or excessive water can really dry out our skin! Instead, take short warm showers and use Pevonia’s Bath Essentials Duo (Anti-Stress Bath and Shower Gel + Seaweed Exfoliating “Soap) to keep skin feeling smooth and soft!
Apply plenty of moisturiser to keep skin hydrated. If you suffer from dry body skin you will love Pevonia’s Dry Oil Body Moisturiser. It combines the deeply nourishing oils of Safflower Seed Oil, Macadamia Oil, Chamomile and Lavender Essential Oils and Iris Root Extract. You can massage it straight into damp skin for quick absorbency and can also be used as a beautiful natural fragrance, simply spray onto décolleté and massage into skin and then wait for the compliments as you enter a room.
For the facial skin Pevonia has creams and moisturisers for all skin types! However, one of our most popular moisturisers is the Power Repair Age-Defying Collagen Cream. It prevents and smooths fine lines and wrinkles, replenishes and nourishes, and protects the skin from the environment.
OUR SPECIAL OFFER THIS MONTH

Another cause of dehydration is sweating, and while you won’t be doing it as much as you do in summer you may need to replenish skin with a heavy dose of moisture after a session at the gym. We love Phyto-Aromatic Mist, a quick spritz restores moisture and hydration and can even be used over makeup.
If your skin becomes more sensitive during the colder months we recommend soothing and calming it with our Soothing Sensitive Cream. It strengthens fragile skin for a hydrated, calm complexion. It works best for those with sensitive, hypersensitive and allergy-prone skin that gets red or easily irritated.
Finally, use natural, safe, gentle products on your skin. Pevonia® products do not contain SLS, GMOs, PABA, Urea, Lanolin, Formaldehyde, Alcohol, Parabens, Mineral Oil, Gluten, Artificial Colours or Fragrance and are Cruelty Free.
Choose one that fits your skin concern and stay hydrated this winter!
