As we move into summer and the weather (hopefully) hots up, it’s time to up your skincare game to ensure a healthy and glowing complexion. Royal facialist and Founder of Heaven Skincare Deborah Mitchell explains what changes to make to keep your skin looking its best for the months ahead 

Why Switch Up Your Skincare Routine? 

The change in temperature and humidity levels from spring to summer can have a significant impact on your complexion. As the weather gets warmer, your skin may produce more oil, causing breakouts and acne. In addition, you may sweat more, and this can lead to dehydration and irritation. By making small changes to your daily skincare routine you can make big changes to your skin. 

What Changes Should You Make? 

Keep it clean: 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 our faces are exposed to all sorts of environmental aggressors, from UV light to pollution, if you don’t cleanse properly, you leave all that grime on your skin day in, day out. My gentle Hydro Cleansing Milk contains organic jojoba, the closest match to our own natural oil, to balance and condition.  

The power of antioxidants: Antioxidants protect your skin from environmental stressors and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Look for products that contain antioxidants vitamins, such as beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E. Heaven’s Divine Cream is bursting with organic mandarin and orange, both natural sources of vitamin C, for more youthful and radiant skin. It was created for all complexions, especially those with more mature, sun damaged skin. 

Hydration, hydration, hydration: During warmer weather it’s vital to keep your skin hydrated – just as you need to drink water your skin needs water too. This way it stays plump and healthy, and dryness is kept at bay. Use my Orange Flower Hydrogel to pep your skin with a big burst of hydration. It will help soothe and repair, minimising redness as it does. It also contains organic neroli, asparagus and skin-saving vitamin C to refine fine lines. 

Invest in a face mist: A hydrating face mist is a great way to refresh your skin and keep it hydrated throughout the day. Look for a product with ingredients like hyaluronic acid that help to soothe and moisturise your skin. Keep a bottle in your bag for a quick pick-me-up on hot summer days. Collagen Body & Face Mist contains Heaven’s exclusive Collagen Drops blended with hyaluronic acid to even out fine lines and improve hydration and elasticity. There’s also essential neroli oil to target breakouts, balance oil levels and soothe redness. Keep in the fridge and spritz as summer hots up. 

 How to Keep Your Skin Looking Its Best 

Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is essential for keeping your skin hydrated and healthy. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, and increase your intake if you’re spending time outdoors in the sun. 

Eat a healthy diet: Eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and lean proteins can help to nourish your skin from the inside out. Foods like blueberries, spinach and salmon are packed with antioxidants and nutrients that can help to keep your complexion glowing. 

Get enough sleep: Sleep is crucial for maintaining healthy skin. Aim for at least seven hours of shut eye each night, and establish a relaxing bedtime routine to help you unwind before hitting the sack.
