The trend for minimal beauty is all well and good if you have great skin. But anyone who suffers acne, sensitivity, dryness or ageing issues will know only too well that a routine is vital to keep their complexion happy and healthy. We asked DEBORAH MITCHELL, Founder of Heaven Skincare, to talk us through the perfect daily regime.
CLEANSE … the essential first step to remove make-up, dead cells, oil and daily pollutants to unclog pores and prevent breakouts. Soak your face with warm water (make sure it’s not too hot as this candehydrate your skin and damage sensitive areas) before applying a small amount of cleanser. Gently massage in a circular motion, avoiding the eye area, for between 30-60 seconds. Rinse thoroughly and pat, not rub, your face dry with a clean, soft towel.
TRY …New Edition Cleanser is suitable for all skin types; it contains my patented ABEETOXIN® formula to firm as it cleanses.
EXFOLIATE …your skin is constantly shedding dead skin cells to make way for new ones. As we get older this process begins to slow down so it’s important to give Mother Nature a helping hand. An exfoliator helps scuff away the dead cells and clears pores to leave your complexion looking more radiant and feeling healthier.
TRY …I created Bee Peel to tighten and firm skin as it works its way through dead skin cells, improving pigmentation, breakouts and blemishes.
TONE …Toners are designed to restore your natural pH balance as well as remove leftover makeup and impurities, flush out pores and reduce breakouts. Choose one that is suitable for your skin type for maximum hydration, and use after your cleanser and exfoliator and before moisturising.
TRY …Heaven’s Peppermint Hydrogel minimises oil secretion, balances the PH levels, refines pores and diminish blemishes, leaving your skin feeling fully hydrated.
SERUM …These penetrate deeper than a moisturiser, due to them having smaller molecules, so they deliver a potent shot of ingredients directly into your skin. They’re a great investment too; because they are concentrated you only need a small amount and you’ll find a few drops go a long way.
TRY …Clarifying Oil Serumis perfect for people with eczema or sensitive skin, conditioning skin to bring it back to equilibrium
