Skin Diary: Oily Skin January 13 2014, 4 Comments

Hello Angels!

Since my first skin diary I have received many emails asking advice on what products to use for different skin conditions. Oily Skin seems to be the hot topic this week, so here it goes! One of the hardest problems with having oily skin is that it is a hormonal problem, and unless you’re Rihanna no one is actively trying to shine bright like a diamond.  Caring for your oily face is no walk in the park, and I personally often struggle with excess oil on my face even an hour or two after my morning cleansing routine. No fears, I am going to give you a few quick tips using some of my favorite Heaven products to clean up the oil!

Alex xx

Step 1: CLEANSE, CLEANSE, CLEANSE

I cannot stress how important cleansing is in your daily skincare routine. The cleansing process is essential to clean off existing oil on the skin. Using our Cleanse and Tone wash I apply between a half a pump to a pump of this lightweight gel all over my face. The active ingredients include Mandarin Essential Oil that works as an exfoliator and collagen booster and takes off all the dirt and grime.  This cleanser is natural and will not irritate or trigger the skin to produce more oils. After application wash off with warm water.

Step 2: Toner- The step that everyone forgets!

For oily skin, toner is key! Most people skip the toner process and it is one of the most important parts of your skincare routine because it removes excess cleanser, balances skin’s pH levels, moisturizes and adds a layer of protection to the skin. I use Heaven’s Peppermint Clarifying lotion especially designed for those with oily skin it is a treatment toner that normalizes oil secretions, refines pores and balances the pH of the skin with peppermint and lavender water. Apply using a cotton wool on T-zone or all over face using fingertips.

Step 3: Moisturizer is a Must

People with oily skin tend to shy away from moisturizer because they believe it will make their skin more oily. The truth is you NEED to moisturize to keep your skin look its best and stay hydrated. I use the Youthful Moisturizer because it contains Ylang Ylang known for its oil balancing properties. I apply this generously all over my face in the morning and before I go to bed.

Step 4: Ella Saves the Day

If after following this routine in the morning and nighttime you still find your skin is oily throughout the day there is nothing better than the Ella Jane Celebrity Skin Wipes. I never leave the house without them- they are literally a lifesaver for those of you with oily skin. These wipes are all natural made with organic cotton and have apple pectin, honey and organic peppermint that cleanse and exfoliate without irritating the skin. The peppermint specifically works to target and reduce oil production on the skin.

Skin Diary: My Battle with Rosacea December 04 2013, 0 Comments

“You’re so rosy, you look like a little cherub”

As a man, and someone that works for a skincare company that is not something I want to hear. I have struggled with rosacea my entire life. If you are unfamiliar with Rosacea it is a chronic condition characterized by facial redness and often unsightly acne.  During my years of research I have come across numerous celebrities that also have Rosacea including Diane Kruger, Bill Clinton and Mariah Carey- so let’s just say I’m in good company. 

I am lucky enough to not have severe Rosacea but still am flush enough to get people asking if I feel sick or worse if I had too much to drink- if it’s 3 p.m. I am working, I’m not in Margaritaville!

I have sought numerous treatments for my redness including multiple trips to the dermatologist and hundreds of unsuccessful skincare products. I have considered a dermatological laser treatment but something about that idea completely freaks me out.

When I started working for Heaven and using the products I finally found products that worked for my Rosacea. People will assume that I am just saying this because I work for the company, but I don’t write anything about products that I don’t 100% back and believe in. 

When I began working I was referred the Rosacea kit by my boss after we did my skin analysis. The kit includes a 15ml of the Age Defiance Cream (a Heaven bestseller), a 25ml of the double strength Skin Polish Exfoliator, 25ml of the Limited Edition Cleanser and 25ml of the Chamomile Desensitizing lotion.

I first use the Limited Edition cleanser to rid my skin of any excess debris (i.e. the “daily dirt”). This cleanser contains organic ylang ylang and coconut oils that not only cleanse the face but act to balance hormones in your face. I apply this generously with my fingertips all over my face but you can also apply it with the Heaven Ella Jane Celebrity skin wipes. I normally let the cleaner sit on my face for minute and the wash it off with warm water. This is more of an introductory step that balances the skin’s surface and allows the next steps to work more effectively on a clean face palate.

My next step is to apply the double strength Skin Polish exfoliator. This exfoliator uses glycolic acid and other organic ingredients which works to boost the immunity of the skin and lighten and even skin pigmentation- perfect for my redness. I apply this after the cleanser and then immediately wash off with warm water. 

Warning: depending on the sensitivity of you skin the skin polish exfoliator can get intense in the double and triple strength formulas- we like to think of it as the least expensive chemical peel you will ever receive! The more you use this product the more your skin will get used to it.

I next apply the Age Defiance cream using my ring finger to smooth and plump the skin. Even though I am in my mid twenties I still use this cream because it adds and retains a great amount of moisture on the face and is light enough to wear out during the day without looking oily or greasy. Age Defiance works to fight Rosacea by balancing out the blotchy red spots on the skin. 

Last, but certainly not least a light spritzing of the Chamomile Desensitizing Lotion. I love the would spritzing, there is nothing better than being able to spritz something on your face and go- the ultimate in low maintenance skincare. Using organic chamomile, rose and witch hazel this lotion works to reduce irritation and with acne and redness on the skin’s surface. 

After my easy four step process my skin feels cleansed and refreshed, but more importantly there is a visible reduction in the red pigmentation. My skin once blotchy and red is now even toned and balanced. 

If you have rosacea or you just want to pretend you’re rosy (I see you Mariah super fans) I urge you to buy the Rosacea kit- you are sure to be impressed and see excellent results. If you have any questions or blog post suggestions feel free to email me at alex@heavenskincareusa.com!

Heaven Skincare USA's Signature Bee Venom Mask: How the Venom is Obtained August 24 2013, 92 Comments

 

 

"Heaven's Beauty Range that features Bee Venom along with natural ingredients and organic formulas are not the alternative to botulinum toxin (Botox), but the answer! Turn to and trust nature, with a helping hand from Heaven." – Deborah Mitchell         

Heaven’s premiere world-renowned Bee Venom Mask has truly taken the beauty industry by storm as a natural alternative to botulinum toxin type a injections (Botox). The active ingredient is based on the bioactive bee venom compounds, with the bee venom derived from inducing bees to sting, but with no harm to the honey bee. The compounds in the bee venom stimulate the skin by smoothing out wrinkles and reinvigorating tired cells to give the skin a more even, and more radiant complexion. The skin is "naturally stimulated" into releasing natural collagen and elastin as a natural defense to the active compounds, helping to calm, tighten and rejuvenate the skin. 

Heaven Bee Venom Mask

 
In fact, Heaven Skincare by Deborah Mitchell is actually helping to safeguard the bee population! Due to the technique in the way the venom is obtained, which is an entirely harmless process, the bees live longer and are more productive!  How is this done?  Bee which land near their organic hives on a glass collecting plates, can react to a very slight electrical pulse, and thus are “stimulated” into delivering their reactive and protective sting.  However, unlike an actual typical bee sting,  where the lance or "stinger" is left behind in the stinging episode... in the case of this collection process the bee's lance is not detached from their body, however the minute amount of bee venom fluid is left behind on the glass collecting plate.
 
Researchers have shown, that in this physical process of releasing the stored bee venom (but without losing by ripping away the lance or stinger) that in fact this process PROLONGS the life and the vitality of these honey bees and thus energize their colonies. 
 
Heaven Skincare has raised over $75,000 for bee conservation, has donated over $30,000 to The Prince's Trust (Prince Charles), which is a non-profit organization keen on developing healthier, more organic, more life enhancing projects, and has funded myriad other community project, charitable organizations, and is always willing to lend a helping hand in any outreach program.
 
All Heaven Skincare products are all natural, organic, paraben free, and made with Love.  The signature Bee Venom Mask won the prestigious GOLD AWARD at the 2012 Stevie International Business Awards in New York City.  Heaven Skincare products are used by Kate Middleton and many others in the British Royal Family, Victoria Beckham and other entertainment celebrities, personalities and actors like Gwyneth Paltrow and Dannii Minogue, Real Housewives of Miami star Ana Quincoces, and a very long list of satisfied customers that Heaven Skincare has helped put on a "glowing face" going forward.
 
Important Tips: While a reaction to ingredients in the Heaven Skincare Bee Venom Mask is very rare, we do recommend doing a Patch Test first. On a small area of your face, apply a very small amount and massage into your skin and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Note: if a person has a known Bee Sting Allergy please consult your physician.  
 
Best Results Instructions: In morning, wash and dry massage.  Massage a finger tip amount of Bee Venom Mask cream into the skin, avoiding areas near the eyes or nostrils.  Let sit, then gently wash with warm water after 20-30 minutes.  Before applying makeup, can apply a small amount of Bee Venom Mask and then apply your base foundation and makeup over that application.  At night, after removing makeup and before going to bed, one can again massage a finger tip amount of Bee Venom Mask cream into the skin, avoiding areas near the eyes or nostrils and this can be gently washed after 20-30 minutes, or it can be left on the skin overnight.

Heaven Skincare USA: Research Study - Bee Venom Kills HIV July 03 2013, 0 Comments

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND BEAUTY PRODUCTS COEXIST


Recent studies have revealed that the active toxin in bee venom, Melittin, actually kills the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) by destroying its protective outer layer without destroying other cells! 

“Melittin on the nanoparticles fuses with the viral envelope,” said research instructor Joshua L. Hood, MD, PhD, via the news release. “The melittin forms little pore-like attack complexes and ruptures the envelope, stripping it off the virus.” Adding, “We are attacking an inherent physical property of HIV. Theoretically, there isn’t any way for the virus to adapt to that. The virus has to have a protective coat, a double-layered membrane that covers the virus.”

Just another reason you gotta love them!
