If there’s one thing that age has taught me, it’s the supreme importance of taking care of your skin. After going through what has seemed like a roller coaster of skin problems in the past few months I was glad to start using Pevonia Spa Clinica’s Skin Perfecting 4 Step System which has made a positive difference. A mainstay in the spa industry for two decades, Pevonia Spa Clinica makes it easier than ever for the average consumer to achieve skin perfection at home.
By bringing the Professional Aesthetician directly to us with their easy-to-use website, Pevonia takes a lot of the guess work out of choosing the perfect skin care regimen. When you visit their site, their Concerns Tool allows you to customize your skin care plan and you can also consult with an Aesthetician via video chat, text chat, or phone. You can even get a free video analysis of your skin, which is a really nice added benefit for anyone.
In addition to custom skin care plans, Pevonia offers four basis regimens:
– Skin Perfecting Regimen, to repair sun damage and spots
– Anti-Aging Regimen, to repair fine lines and wrinkles
– Breakout Erase Regimen, to heal and prevent adult acne
– Redness Relief Regimen, to calm redness and sensitivity
For my skin concerns I chose the Skin Perfecting Regimen which includes cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer. You can buy these items a la carte, but they work best as a team. The main ingredient in the Skin Perfecting Regime is retinol to rejuvenate and resurface your skin. Retinol is the #1 prescribed ingredient by dermatologists for
The Skin Perfecting Cleanser ($23) foams up nicely and makes my skin feel cleansed without any tightness. I usually use a makeup remover in advance, and find that the cleanser helps remove any lingering makeup. It has a light, refreshing scent and dispenses without a mess.
The Skin Perfecting Toner ($18) is alcohol-free and extremely gentle. In the past I’ve associated retinol-based toners with stinging, which is not the case here. You spritz the toner on a cotton pad and run it over your skin for best results.
The Wrinkle Plus Serum ($39) reduces visible pores, smooths and resurfaces your skin, and helps even out your skin tone. It’s very concentrated, so a little bit will do. Make sure to wash your hands after using it!
The Skin Perfecting Moisturizer ($67) ties every other product together with retinol to replenish elastin, smooth wrinkles, and seal in the serum. It’s not heavy at all and absorbs quickly.
Pevonia’s Skin Perfecting System has been part of my skin care regime consistently for the the past month and I can say that I am very pleased with the results.
The most impressive part of Pevonia’s Skin Perfecting regime is that my skin is not irritated by the retinol in the products at all because it contains encapsulated micro-retinol to effectively reach your skin. My skin is smoother, has a great glow, and my breakouts are minimized. When I wake up my skin looks and feels great from the get go, which is a pleasant surprise to experience. I also like that I can use effective retinol products without having to get a prescription.
