Dr Levy Switzerland 3DEEP Cell Renewal Micro-Resurfacing Cleanser, £39, and Decolletage Regenerating Silk, £290

Spring clean your skincare regime with Dr. Levy Switzerland’s synergistic 3DEEP Cell Renewal Micro-Resurfacing Cleanser! This cleanser helps to progressively eliminate dullness from the outer cell layer and thanks to its unique creamy texture will leave the skin delightfully silky and soft. With three application options available for all skin types, from gentle cleansing for sensitive skin to intensive micro-resurfacing for oily skins, it’s a universal must-have.

Meanwhile the Decolletage Regenerating Silk features an ultra-potent deep repair complex, StressCellRepair, proven to both increase and accelerate the repair of the skin cells’ damaged DNA and fibroblasts, which produce the skin’s collagen & elastin. Encapsulated in special liposomes for deeper penetration, the key StressCellRepair ingredients have been proven to both accelerate the cell repair process after UV exposure and to significantly reduce the stress response in fibroblasts.

It also contains the patented ArganCellActiv complex, the world’s first proven substance to stimulate dermal stem cells, the primal source of skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Independent clinical studies have shown that in less than two months wrinkle depth is reduced by 26% and skin density increased by 12%.

Dr. Levy Switzerland retails at the Dr Rita Rakus clinic in Knightsbridge and select clinics and medi-spas around the UK.

Curaprox Black is White, £19.95

This charcoal-based toothpaste effectively yet naturally strengthens and whitens teeth and is available in two refreshing flavours, mild mint (White is Black) and mint with citrus (Black is White). The pack includes a Black Is White limited edition CS 5460 ultra-soft toothbrush, helping your teeth and gums to feel amazingly clean and fresh every day.

Unlike typical whitening toothpastes that contain abrasive particles and bleaching agents that erode the enamel, Black is White and White is Black use activated carbon to gently adsorb and remove stain particles that discolour teeth without wearing enamel away, leaving you with healthy, natural white teeth. What is more, this key ingredient has a positive effect on the teeth and gums without drying out the mouth.

Rita Rakus Black Diamond HydraFacial, from £250

With Mother’s Day around the corner, treat your mum (or yourself!) to the Black Diamond HydraFacial, uniquely designed by Dr Rita Rakus. The facial begins with a detoxification of the skin using relaxing lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness. This is followed by deep cleansing using botanical products and exfoliating the skin with a very gentle microdermabrasion technique in conjunction with glycolic acids to allow a more comfortable extraction of blocked pores and decongesting the treatment area.

There is then an application of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and Vitamin E, which is delivered deeply into the skin using the painless vortex infusion. Red and blue light is applied over the treatment area to target congestion and calm the skin. Your skin will feel deeply cleansed, refreshed and rejuvenated.

The Black Diamond HydraFacial recently won the Middle East Pool & Spa Award for ‘Best Signature Facial’. This award-winning facial is also available at the Dr Rakus Knightsbridge Clinic.
