THE GO-TO SKINCARE THAT TACKLES ROSACEA
This April marks Rosacea Awareness Month. Here, royal facialist and founder of Heaven Skincare Deborah Mitchell explains more about the condition and what products can really help.
Those who suffer from rosacea will know that the symptoms can be difficult to manage. Typically you’ll experience flushing, pimples or bumps in your skin, your eyes may sting and your complexion becomes dry. This leads to redness on the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead, and over time this can become more intense, flaring up on regular occasions, and leaving you with a ruddy complexion and visible blood vessels. Added to this, it gets worse after eating spicy food or drinking alcohol and caffeine.
“Rosacea can have a real impact; in fact a recent survey by the National Rosacea Society revealed that 90% of sufferers said it lowered their self-esteem and self confidence,” explains Deborah. “My advice would be to steer clear of any beauty products that contain alcohol, fragrance and chemicals because these will only irritate your symptoms further. Instead, you should opt for mild, hydrating products because these will boost your skin and leave it looking healthier and feeling much calmer.”
World-renowned for its results-driven therapies, Heaven Skincare has created a range of go-to products – including serums, cleansers and moisturisers – that are designed specifically to not only tackle rosacea but also keep it under control.
Deborah recommends a daily routine that includes the following:
The first cleanser of its kind to contain Heaven’s patented ABEETOXIN® formula, New Edition Cleanser contains vitamin A to help resurface and repair cells.
Lia Oil Serum penetrates the epidermis to deliver ingredients directly into your skin. It has been created to reduce redness and rosacea while rejuvenating a damaged and dull complexion.
Youthful Moisturiser is designed to bring even the most sensitive skin back to a state of equilibrium. It’s also great for those who suffer from blackheads, breakouts and enlarged pores.
Heaven’s Chamomile Desensitising Hyrogel soothes and repairs; chamomile and Echinacea act as an anti-inflammatory and are anti-allergenic, while organic witch hazel calms redness.
The first non-abrasive Bee Polish contains bee venom and glycolic acid to extract toxins without harming the outer layer of the skin to combat irritation.
Thanks to its vitamin B content, Overnight Success Cream releases oxygen to detoxify and replenish. Perfect for dull or damaged skin, it helps keep acne at bay and controls rosacea.
Age Defiance Cream is the ‘all rounder’ designed for all skin types and is particularly good for soothing irritated, acne-prone, blemished or sensitive skin.
Heaven has also created a complete Bee Rosy Kit, containing all the products you’ll need to work in tandem with each other to ease irritation, boost hydration and restore radiance.
