It’s that time of the year that calls for cosy knits, woolly socks ... and great skin care! As the temperatures change, so should the products you’re using daily; ensuring your complexion is protected for the harsher weather to come. Here are the products Heaven Founder and Royal Facialist Deborah and Mitchell reaches for at this time of the year
Bee Venom Masks: The big hitters of your autumn skincare arsenal, choose from Silver, Black and Gold. Your complexion quickly feels soft and supple, and looks more youthful. Each one soothes and heals too, meaning they're ideal for even sensitive skin. Leave on for ten minutes and wash off with warm water or combine with a serum. For accelerated results, leave on overnight.
Willowbee® Mask and Cleanse: This multi-functional essential detoxes your skin, helps heal imperfections and targets those tell-tale signs of ageing. It’s the first of Heaven’s products to contain the healing bark from the willow tree, a natural and organic alternative to aspirin. Because of this it’s ideal for those who suffer from acne and spot breakouts, rosacea and eczema.
Prism Age Defiance Cream: Autumn means more time spent indoors and that inevitably means more time on our devices. My Age Defiance Cream uses Prism Light Defiance TechnologyTM to harness the power of our skin’s own natural peptides to not defend against light damage. It works in tandem with light to inform your skin to replenish specific areas with more elastin and collagen; plumping out lines, easing scar formation, lightening pigmentation and preventing spot breakouts.
Vanilla Pod Hand, Nail and Face Cream: Look after the skin on your hands just as you do the skin on your face, especially if you find they are drier at this time of the year. This super-nourishing cream instantly nourishes and hydrates hands and nails. It smells wonderful too – in fact, Deborah applies some before she carries out treatments in her salon and her clients always ask what perfume she's wearing.
Heaven Hydrogels: During autumn our complexion quickly becomes dehydrated, dry and dull. My three Hydrogels – Peppermint, Chamomile and Orange Flower – give your skin an instant beauty boost. Each one is designed to tackle a range of issues. They feed and water skin, soothe and repair, diminish blemishes and minimise redness.
Cleanse and Foam Wash: Because our natural exfoliation process tends to slow down at this time of the year, we need to give our skin a helping hand. This non-abrasive exfoliator, toner and cleanser in one improve elasticity levels while balancing oil levels to reduce shine on your T-Zone. It works its way into pores to flush out dirt and remove blackheads.
