Environ is a globally recognized professional skincare brand that is built on science. It originated in South Africa and was created by a plastic surgeon who passionately believes in using vitamin A to maintain healthy skin. “Environ skin care products have been formulated to combat and relieve the harmful effects of today’s harsh environmental changes, specifically pollution and ever-increasing doses of radiation from the sun due to the thinning of the protective ozone layer. Added to these are the modern-day effects of social and work stresses and poor diet.”
Having to work with so many vitamin A based products, I truly have fallen in love with the Environ AVST step up system, and I believe, unlike most modern days Retinol and Retin-A products on the market, AVST is gentle enough to introduce to clients with all skin types and conditions ranging from sensitive skin and even rosacea to combo/oily/acneic skin types.
The AVST range gives skin exactly what it needs because of its scientifically researched combination of vitamins A, C, E and antioxidants including rooibos tea, honeybush and specially selected peptides. The step up system helps your skin to become gradually more comfortable by increasing the levels of vitamin A and peptides. You don’t have to be extra careful with it and it will not make you super dry, flaky or sun sensitive like other brands’ vitamin A products. You should use it every night as a moisturizer comfortably but I still would wear a sunscreen every day because simply put it’s a must in my routine and it should be in yours too.
Vitamin A is the only known element that keeps skin healthy and combats aging. It has proven to have the following benefits:
- Promote the skin’s natural moisturizing factor and give it a radiant glow.
- Strengthen the skin’s outer layer to keep it firm.
- Stimulate the production of natural proteins to keep skin looking healthy.
- Support the skin’s immune system and helps prevent breakouts.
- Assists in reducing the development of potential skin cancers.
My skin type is oily and not sensitive so I started on AVST3 and immediately saw a more nourished and radiant skin appearance and a smoother breakout-free skin texture. I love it! If you are sensitive or have rosacea and any kind of easily induced skin irritation, I would start with AVST1 and let the vitamin A do it’s job. My job is my passion and skin is my playground. I enjoy educating my clients and answering all the questions and concerns they might have. Curiosity is highly welcomed in my world.
