We Practice What We Preach

Here at Heaven Sent Beauty we only deliver treatments that we believe in and have given proven results. Before launching anything into the salon we run a trial period on ourselves, family and friends (perks of the job). Unless we have had the treatment and experienced it working for us first hand, you won’t see it in our salon. That’s why when you talk to us about your treatments you won’t just have our knowledge and expertise on the products and treatments you’ll have our honest experience on how it worked for us too!

When clients ask what we use on our skin and how we get our glow, it’s honestly because we use the products, do the treatments and practise what we preach!

A few days ago Clare was asked “Your skin looks amazing today, what are you using?” and the only honest reply she could make was “You see that Environ cupboard over there? And the Jane Iredale shelf? It’s all on my face!”

It’s not just the relaxing and pampering treatments we test out, oh no! We have been through the pain that we sometimes subject you to. Our lovely Lycon waxing system was trailed on ourselves as well as IPL in various areas, so we know exactly what you are going through!

When Nita wanted to take her eyebrow queen status up a level and started offering the new techniques in hair-stroke semi-permenant makeup, Clare was one of the first to have it done and her eyebrows have never been more ‘on fleek’ – take a look next time you are in salon!

If you ever have any questions on any of our treatments, please feel free to ask away, we have been there too!

Caring For Your Skin With The Fabulous Vitamin A!

The way our skin responds to ageing is due, in part, to our genetic make-up.

But how we treat our skin has a huge impact on the visible signs.

  • Exposure to sunlight
  • Environmental elements such as air pollution
  • Toxins in our food
  • Lifestyles(lack of sleep, stress smoking and alcohol)

All contribute to the visible signs of ageing developing well before their time. So, it’s good to know that we can control these, and we can make a material difference to our skin.

The Benefits of Vitamin C

Vitamin C otherwise know ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin. We cannot store it in the body, which means we need it from our diet every day.

Vitamin C helps to protect cells and keep them healthy. It is also involved in the production of collagen, which maintains healthy connective tissues, important for the support and structure of tissues and organs including the skin, bones and blood vessels.

Vitamin C helps with wound healing, and consuming vitamin C increases the amount of iron we can absorb from vegetables, such as brocolli, sprouts and kale.
