Learning To Love Yourself Part Two

Learning To Love Yourself Part Two

Posted by Pevonia Marketing on 21st Feb 2022

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…” While this sonnet was meant for how we love someone else, it’s also true that there are countless ways to love yourself. As we are a skincare brand, we’ll focus on how Pevonia can help you do this best - with natural skin care for your face and body sprinkled with insights on how to fall in love with you again!

The skin is your largest organ, so it makes sense that taking good care of it is an ideal way to show yourself some love. The trick is to make using natural skin care products a daily self-care habit. No guilt allowed! Starting and ending your day with a sulfate-free, natural skin cleanser and natural body wash and protecting your skin barrier with a healthy face and body moisturizer isn’t just about pampering yourself - though you deserve it! Consistent use of high-quality personal care is about wellness as it keeps your skin barrier strong, enabling it to protect you best! 

How it looks, feels, and smells engages our senses, while keeping it healthy is essential for caring for your entire body. When your skin looks good, you feel more confident. When you touch it and notice how soft it is, it elicits a feeling of comfort. Smelling fresh is equally as impactful on our minds and moods. 

However, when your skin looks less than radiant or takes on a fatigued, aged appearance, it can affect your self-esteem. For example, perhaps you have heard your inner voice criticizing how you looked in a recent selfie. This negative messaging takes a toll on your confidence and is the exact opposite of loving yourself. To help change this self-defeating dialog, try replacing each of those thoughts with one positive thought. Find something that you like about yourself and meditate on that! 

As you work on changing the channel on negative self-talk, if you can objectively observe something that is easily changed, we say go for it - taking reasonable measures to address visible imperfections is a truly loving act.

Using formulas enriched with the bounty of nature and free of harmful ingredients is an outstanding way to show your skin that you care. Perhaps new fine lines are just beginning to emerge around your eyes. Don’t fret! Add in the best natural eye cream for those first fine lines, such as the Pevonia Evolutive Eye Cream. If you have dark circles or puffiness, too, check out the Lumafirm Eye Contour - Lift & Glow.  With early signs of aging on the rest of your face, incorporate a corrective serum from the Power Repair Collection into your routine and swap out your old moisturizer for the Pevonia Marine Collagen Cream. This top-seller minimizes fine lines and helps forestall wrinkles, plus, with deeply moisturizing sustainably-sourced ingredients, it feels like a love pat for your skin and the environment. 

Now, for more advanced signs of aging, a little acceptance and appreciation goes a long way. We like to credit pronounced lines and wrinkles to “wisdom and experience,” but aren’t ready to surrender to Father Time just yet! To gracefully manage these visible signs of more than a few trips around the sun, we recommend upgrading to our Stem Cells Phyto-Elite Collection for head-to-toe support. If you have spent many of those trips basking outdoors, the Micro Retinol Line will help repair the UV damage, refine uneven texture, and achieve a more youthful-looking glow.

Tempted to go crazy with filters to camouflage roughness or dullness? Then, exfoliate with our Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and Enzymo Spherides Peeling Cream once or twice a week to give your skin back its smooth, youthful-looking radiance. 

Let’s say it’s loose skin on your body that has you feeling less than fond towards numero uno; pick up the Pevonia Lumafirm Body Moisturizer to regain firmer-looking skin and improve your self-image.

Bookending your day with a skincare routine is an opportunity for you to practice self-love. 
While you bathe and slather on your skin care cream, remember to focus on what you like about yourself to encourage gratitude and amplify the positive vibes. Keep up the good work!
