The days are getting shorter, temperatures are dropping and the air is becoming drier. Autumn has officially arrived. But while cosy jumpers, pumpkin spiced everything and hot chocolates might be on the horizon, the cooler climes don’t necessarily mean good news for your skin. As a time of transition, autumn is the best time to rejuvenate and repair your skin by correcting any summer damage and preparing your complexion for winter.
While lighter creams and masks might have done the job previously, getting the hydration your skin needs is even more important when the weather cools down. Luckily, Heaven host a whole range of skin care development specially designed for that purpose, from heavier creams and hydrogels to nourishing moisturisers that promise an instant hit of hydration.
A lot of people think that exfoliation can exacerbate dryness – something we already have enough of during the cooler months – but in reality, it’s the best way to treat parched, flaky skin. After hours in the sun, your complexion can begin to look dehydrated and sallow, so it’s important to get rid of the dead damaged cells. The Bee Peel is the perfect exfoliator, not only does it resurface and even out skin tone it also minimises the visibility of lines, scars, dark spots, blemishes and enlarged pores. This way, your skin will be prepped to absorb more moisture and improve the effectiveness of nourishing products.
Hot summer days can cause serious dehydration so the moisture lots need to properly supplemented before winter rears its head. If you have dry skin already you really need to knuckle down that hydration to stop your skin from getting flaky so opt for a cream specifically designed to prevent moisture loss. I advise using the Age Defiance cream with the Bee Venom Mask on top for that extra hydration.
For those with oily skin, applying a heavy cream can feel a little too much but you can still benefit from additional moisturising come winter. Instead of skipping it altogether look for the right cream which does everything – the Bee Venom Mask!
While we’re well accustomed to keeping a lip balm in our pockets and enlisting the help of heavy winter face creams to battle against the cold, there is one part of the body that often gets overlooked; our hands. Constantly exposed, the cold weather quickly ravages delicate skin but don’t fret because the Vanilla Pod is a conditioner in a pot and can instantly nourish and hydrate hands, nails and even cracked feet. Not only that the Vanilla Pod is the only hand cream that is so natural it can also be used on your lips and nails.
