Put away the cosy blankets, spring is here! After months of hibernating indoors we can finally enjoy lighter mornings and sunny strolls. This time of the year is perfect to wake up your skin and prep for sunnier days ahead. Deborah Mitchell, Founder of Heaven Skincare, shares her new season tips and must-haves.
It’s time for a spring clean … and I’m not talking about your kitchen cupboards! A cleanser is the essential first step in any skincare routine. It removes make-up, dead cells, oil and daily pollutants, unclogging the pores and preventing breakouts. Because the face is exposed to all sorts of environmental aggressors, from UV light to pollution, it sweats and becomes dirty faster than any other part of your body. So if you don’t cleanse properly, you leave all that grime on your skin day in day out.
A real multi-purpose must-have, Heaven’s creamy Hydro Cleansing Milk hydrates and removes daily pollutants while it cleanses. It contains organic jojoba, which is the closest match to our own natural oil, to balance and condition. Perfect for all skin types, it’s also a great stress-buster too, thanks to its relaxing properties of rosemary and lavender. Simply apply to face and neck in the morning and night and massage in a circular motion to remove dirt and boost collagen production. Leave on for five minutes if needed before rinsing with warm water.
Spring skin TCL
Update your routine for the new season with these skincare treats that hydrate, improve skin tone and ensure complexion perfection for the coming months.
One of Heaven’s signature products, Silver Bee Venom Mask controls facial muscles to tighten, firm and lift, penetrating fine lines and wrinkles. It contains my revolutionary ABEETOXIN – renowned as a natural alternative to Botox – and has healing properties that make it perfect for those who suffer from blemishes, rosacea, eczema, dry and mature skin.
Use Dream Oil Serum in tandem with your daily mask or moisturiser for a potent beauty boost. Due to its high concentration, you only need a small amount and you’ll find a few drops go a long way. Its evocative geranium and lavender scent can help send you off to the land of nod while it balances oil levels, hydrates and feeds the skin.
The lighter touch
Many of us use heavier moisturisers during the colder months but once it starts to get warmer you may find these a little too greasy.
Choose a lighter moisturiser, like Heaven’s luxurious Divine Cream. It’s suitable for all skin types but it works particularly well on more mature complexions thanks to its innovative anti-ageing properties. Organic mandarin and orange, both renowned natural sources of vitamin C, help increase collagen and elastin levels in the skin, leaving you with a more youthful and radiant complexion.
