As the seasons change, so should your skincare. Deborah Mitchell, Founder of Heaven Skincare, shares her tips and must-haves
After months of hibernating your skin will be crying out for some TLC so buff away the winter with products that cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate. As you spend more time outdoors your daily routine needs to include products that protect against increased humidity and sun damage.
New Edition Cleanser: Start the new season with a daily spring clean. New Edition Cleanser contains patented ABEETOXIN® formula to control facial muscles as it cleanses. Vitamin A works to resurface and repair skin cells for an anti-ageing effect.
Chamomile Hydrogel: A blend of delicate chamomile and Echinacea act as an anti-inflammatory and are anti-allergenic to normalise the skin. The addition of organic witch hazel means redness is reduced, making it the ideal choice to control sensitivity issues, acne, rosacea and eczema.
Silk Skin Bee Bee Cream: Heaven’s all-day SPF 20 BB adds moisture to your skin and at the same time it reacts to your colour tone for a natural, gorgeous glow. Use in place of your foundation for a lighter, natural alternative.
Nettle Polish: Start the new season with flawless skin, thanks to our innovative Nettle Polish. With its clever blend of phytotherapy ingredients, this anti-ageing exfoliator scuffs away dead cells and clear pores, alleviating fine lines, lightening pigmentation and extracting toxins for healthy, radiant skin.
The temperatures are on the up and the days are light and long so switch up your regime to include products that soothe and calm skin. Put those heavy or thick creams away for a few months; at this time of the year they will clog up your pores and cause breakouts.
Hydro Cleansing Milk: This silky soft cleansing milk uses organic jojoba, the closest match to our own natural oil, to balance and condition. While it’s suitable for all complexions, it’s especially good for those with a dry, blemished or oily skin.
Bee Polish: The light, refreshing Bee Polish contains fruit acid, Echinacea and Aloe Vera to gently extract toxins without harming the outer layer of the skin. It also boosts the immunity of the skin, making it ideal for those who suffer with acne.
Age Defiance Cream (pictured, right): The anti-ageing Age Defiance moisturiser that plumps out fine lines, lightens pigmentation and prevents spot breakouts thanks to the addition of hyaluronic acid. It soothes irritated, acne-prone, blemished or sensitive and oily skins – don’t head on holiday without it!
Divine Cream: Bursting with organic mandarin and orange, both renowned natural sources of vitamin C. Together they help increase collagen and elastin levels in the skin, leaving you with a more youthful and radiant complexion. It’s light on the skin, making it the perfect all-day cream during the spring.
As the temperatures start to drop and the air becomes dry, you’ll notice that your complexion starts to lose moisture. Using the right products now means you’ll be laying the groundwork for the harsher winter weather.
Cleanse and Foam: This cleanser and exfoliator in one works its way into pores to flush out dirt and remove blackheads. It contains organic carrot oil and mandarin essential oil to aid skin repair and balance oil and moisture levels.
Peppermint Hydrogel: Your skin may be feeling dehydrated following the summer months so it’ll need a new season perk-up. Peppermint Hydrogel minimise oil secretion, balance the PH levels, refine pores and diminish blemishes, leaving your skin feeling fully hydrated.
Dock Cream: Tackle sensitivity and irritation with the plant-based Dock Cream. By harnessing the power of our own interferons – proteins that are produced by a variety of cells – it reinforces skin, helping to soothe and heal.
Bee Peel: As one of Heaven’s most famous products, Bee Peel offers the ultimate in next level skincare. Designed to help boost collagen, it increases the strength and elasticity and evens out tone to minimise the visibility of lines, scars, dark spots, dullness, blemishes and enlarged pores.
The weather outside may well be frightful, but that doesn’t mean your skin has to be. Frosty mornings leave your complexion feeling dry, dull and lacklustre. Kick-start your winter skincare with these essentials to tackle the cold, and improve hydration and elasticity.
Overnight Success Cream: Thanks to its vitamin B content, our anti-ageing Overnight Cream releases oxygen to detoxify and replenish. Perfect for dull or damaged skin, it can also be used during the day and also helps keep acne at bay and controls rosacea.
Willowbee Mask & Cleanse: This multi-functional must-have not only detoxes your skin, but it also helps heals imperfection as well as targeting those tell-tale signs of ageing. It contains bark from the willow tree, a natural and organic alternative to aspirin.
Silver Bee Venom Mask (pictured, top): One of Heaven’s signature products, this potent anti-ageing mask contains ABEETOXIN® – renowned as a natural alternative to Botox. It’s ideal for those who suffer from blemishes, rosacea, eczema, dry and mature skin.
Nettle Venom Serum: Boasting a whole host of nutrients, including vitamins A, C and K as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium. It’s extremely nourishing and you’ll notice the benefits immediately, including softer, more radiant skin and improvement of tone.
