The age-old question “How to repair dry damaged skin?” piques nearly everyone’s curiosity! Unless you spent a lifetime under a rock where the sun doesn’t shine and bathe in a vat of natural skin care oils daily, chances are your skin exhibits dryness and sun damage.
Skin damage can take many forms and is due to many causes. Before we dive in with our solutions, we want to encourage you to skip regret about not slathering on sunscreen or sticking to your skincare routine. Whether you were born with naturally dry skin or acquired some sun damage and dryness over time, that’s in the past! Today you are interested in taking care of your skin and that is all that matters! Plus, with the right habits and natural skin care products, there is hope! The path to repair sun damaged skin need not be as elusive as a mythical unicorn.
How to Repair Dry Skin
If your skin is simply dry and not yet exhibiting signs of damage, the fix is relatively easy. Really! With regular application of natural skin care oils, roughness and tightness will soon diminish as your skin takes on a dewy luster. It is equally crucial to refrain from drying sulfates or alcohols which strip away skin’s natural protective oils. The CleanRefresh Foaming Oil Cleanser is the best Pevonia dry skin cleanser as it accomplishes all three! It starts your routine with Safflower Seed Oil and Squalane rich in essential fatty acids that are woefully lacking in dry skin.
Truly dry skin needs much more to repair it than just oils, and most skin care cream formulas don’t provide the relief that it so desperately needs. Ingredients like Shea Butter improve skin texture, thinning and moisture levels, while Guarana and Royal Jelly revive dry, dull skin. Royal Jelly, a natural source of B Complex, is critical for energizing and facilitating oxygenation. With Pear Extract in the Pevonia Rejuvenating Dry Skin Cream, this reparative trio repairs dryness like no other.
How to Repair Damaged Skin Barriers
Your skin feels itchy or sensitive and has dry flakey patches? That’s your skin’s protective barrier begging for immediate attention. A damaged barrier can occur due to harsh products, excessive exfoliation and washing, sun overexposure, and pesky stress.. When the skin barrier function is impaired, the skin can’t properly repair itself, leaving you vulnerable to the environment.
Here are some easy skin barrier repair tips:
- Simplify and “gentle” your routine:
- Cleanse with lukewarm water and only the softest washcloth.
- Avoid products with sulfates and alcohols.
- Ease up on exfoliation. (No, you don’t have to give up your scrub forever, just give it a rest until these symptoms abate.)
- Promptly use Hyaluronic Acid, plant-based Glycerin or other humectants immediately after cleansing.
- Use calming products with Green Tea, such as the Pevonia After Sun Soothing Gel, for soothing skin-preserving repair.
How to Repair Sun Damaged Skin
It is no secret that the leading cause of damage to the skin is chronic or prolonged sun overexposure.If you forgot to apply sunscreen and have a nasty sunburn, prompt attention can help halt the pain and ensuing sun damage. Counteract skin-damaging free radicals and enzymes, safeguard moisture and elasticity and reduce redness on the spot with Pevonia After Sun Soothing Gel.
Amino Acids in the Pevonia After Sun Soothing Gel work to counteract free radical damage, safeguarding skin’s moisture and elasticity. At the same time, Water Lily inhibits the skin-damaging enzymes, reducing redness on the spot.
Now, if that happened even once, or you spent countless hours trying to get the perfect suntanned hue, sun damage has likely taken hold. It manifests in dark spots, lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, rough texture, enlarged pores and dilated capillaries.
Your skin needs robust skincare solutions to help undo this damage. Retinol, Vitamin C, Peptides and Stem Cells are the ideal countermeasures. They help overcome the breakdown of collagen, elastin, DNA, and Hyaluronic Acid. They also help with the thickening of skin’s outermost layer and thinning of the dermis beneath.
Retinol helps repair sun damaged skin, revealing a smoother, more radiant complexion.
One of the most skin-friendly forms of antioxidant Vitamin A, it thwarts free radicals and increases cellular turnover. It promotes collagen, elastin and fibroblast production, improving lines, wrinkles and skin tone. As it does this, it helps strengthen capillary walls, improving skin nutrition and oxygenation.
Vitamin C helps skin regain a plump, luminous glow. It minimizes lines and boosts radiance by stimulating collagen and inhibiting melanin production. MAP C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) is recognized as the most skin-friendly form, suitable for all skin types. THD Ascorbate is considered the most effective for targeting hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
AHA’s are excellent for smoothing sun damage and tackling dullness. Formulas with Glycolic Acid, humectants and soothing botanicals can be added to any Pevonia skin-repairing regimen once or twice a week.
Peptides support natural protein production, helping treat visible signs of sun damage and aging as follows:
- Marine Collagen Polypeptides infuse skin with moisture, smoothing wrinkles.
- Marine Elastin Polypeptides improve skin elasticity.
- Oligopeptides and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptides address wrinkling and hyperpigmentation.
Plant stem cells offer powerful regenerative benefits, normalizing the skin. Skin gets "schooled" on how to function like it did before sun damage and aging took their toll. They repair the skin, stimulating cell division and protecting the skin’s own stem cell potency. Clinically-proven Argan and Comfrey Root Stem Cells improve smoothness, density and elasticity.
