Pevonia’s Summer Skin Savvy guide:
SPFUsing skincare products with an SPF is so important, ensuring your skin, especially on your face, is protected and nourished.
Pevonia’s YOUTHRENEW™ TINTED CREAM SPF 30, is the ultimate 5-in-1 daily defence moisturiser. Utilising powerful natural and organic ingredients, this UV busting formula delivers instant radiance in five seconds while also providing significant anti-ageing benefits, ultra-hydration, broad spectrum protection and a natural, soft tint for a flawless, healthy complexion. Using delicate and soothing natural ingredients such as Sea Whip Extract, Shea Butter, Marine Collagen, Vitamin C and Green Olive, skin will be deeply healed, hydrated, rejuvenated and inflammation reduced, for utterly flawless and refreshed results.
The HYDRATING SUNSCREEN SPF 30 is silky-smooth in texture and easy to apply. Its dual-phase protective action both reflects and absorbs the sun’s harmful rays. Additionally, it completely safeguards the skin from burning and ageing rays (UVA & UVB) as well as infra-red rays. Hydrating and soothing, this multi-function sunscreen effectively counteracts sun and ageing damage.
HydrationBy the time the sun sets, proper home care is necessary for additional prevention and protection. Hydrating products should be regularly applied to the sun-exposed skin. When dealing with sunburn, do not apply ice-cold packs, talcum powder and alcohol-based products directly to the skin. They might provide initial relief but can cause more discomfort afterwards as well as dehydrate the skin with the consequence of delaying natural healing.
The AFTERSUN SOOTHING GEL is formulated with Nymphea Alba - European White Water Lily; containing exceptional properties and benefits to the skin: anti-erythema and deeply moisturising effects. This anti-erythema gel contains a potent compound of Proline and White Water Lily combined with Green Tea extract to achieve three vital functions following sun exposure: decrease in skin temperature, decrease in discomfort resulting from burned, sensitive, stressed skin - including burning and stinging sensation, and effective combat against external weakening of cutaneous barrier caused by solar UV rays aggression.
Also using the PHYTO-AROMATIC MIST, will cool, refresh and restore the skin’s balance after exposure to the sun. Recommended for all skin types including very sensitive or sunburnt. When the heat of summer fades, this versatile product can also be used to seal and encourage longer lasting makeup or to refresh the skin at any time.
The painful, external effects of sunburn often mean the potential for serious internal consequences, including heat stroke, are forgotten about. Remember to drink plenty of water and avoid alcoholic beverages, coffee and smoking after any kind of negative reaction to the sun.
As well as good skincare, basic lifestyle steps to follow to avoid excessive sun damage include:
● Avoid direct sun exposure as much as possible, especially between the hours of 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
● Hydrate your skin by drinking water and moisturising topically with appropriate sunscreen products before going outdoors.
● Apply a broad-spectrum high-quality sunscreen and/or YouthRenew, with at least a minimum SPF 15 (SPF 30 is highly recommended) at least 30 minutes before going out in the sun.
● Wear a wide-brimmed hat.
● Wear high-quality UV-proof sunglasses to avoid damaging the eyes.
● Reapply sunscreen every 2-3 hours. Reapply more often when perspiring and/or swimming.
● Continue drinking hydrating liquids throughout the day.
