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.

SLIM + DETOX WRAP:
Kickoff the New Year with healthy detoxification, you’ll literally feel like you’ve lost a few inches! An invigorating scrub boost circulation, followed by natural sea mud packed with minerals and anti-oxidants to detoxify and purify the skin. You will feel relaxed and your skin firmer and more toned. 60 min – $125
Take a “French” Biologique Recherche approach to detoxification and slimming. Shower using the P50 Gommage scrub with the BR Body Glove, followed by Anti-C Oil. It goes on right after stepping out of the shower while the skin is still damp. Lock in the moisture with Crème Reparatrice on areas of the body that need firming and to slim and smooth away cellulite.
Taking care of your hands is also crucial since they’re exposed to the harsh elements. Ultimate Mani/Pedi tends to cuticles, skin, nails, exfoliating and hydrating, extra hydration with a hand and foot mask overnight followed by hand cream you can wear cotton gloves for extra penetration. We suggest that clients carry hand cream with you in your handbag, we like Rich Girl since it has SPF and if you’re an obsessive hand washer Swedish Sea Salt is a nice but inexpensive option.
FULL SPECTRUM FACIAL:
Take a full spectrum approach to skincare and allow us to focus on what works. First we start with a deep cleansing; detoxifies and prepares the skin for treatment, followed by microdermabrasion; treats acne scars, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. Next a mild exfoliating peel; resurfaces and encourages regeneration. Microcurrents; for immediate lifting, firming, and toning. LED light therapy; known for its ability to rejuvenate skin, treat acne, increase microcirculation, and enhance collagen & elastin production. 90 min – $200
DIY FACE: Focus on products that really deliver. The Essentials: We believe that clients should take the same approach body, hands, and feet with the same care and attention they give to their faces.
Cleansing; a milky cleanser respects the epidermis and it works on anyone, for all skin types. You will never feel dry or stripped.
Exfoliation; If you can only get one product P50 1970 is the one! It is balancing, toning, hydrating, etc. like a facial in a bottle. There is a reason this is a cult favorite. Fruit Acid Overnight cream, is like an overnight peel in the most natural gentle fruit acids. Extremely brightening, evens out skin tone, rehydrates, this is the time of the year to do this renews. In conjunction with retinol twice a week you can skip the dermatologist appointment for the aggressive peels. Vitamin C; is TLC for the skin. Just like your immune system can benefit from Vitamin C this time of year so can your skin! C-Quence, C-Boost and Vitamin C Cream from Institut Esthederm.
A Rich Moisturizer like Valmont’s Prime Regenera II is the richest cream there is. If you can only get one winter moisturizer… this does it all. You can apply on any dry patches or the entire face.
“Ultimately, this powerful trilogy of peptide complexes will help keep your skin looking younger for longer.”
The new Environ Intensive Avance DFP 312 Cream is formulated with a combination of various peptide complexes designed to maintain your skin’s youthfulness. Peptides have been identified as essential ingredients for the most advanced anti-ageing skincare preparations. This luxurious multi-functional moisturiser assists not only in improving the overall appearance of your skin,but also leaves your skin feeling moisturised and looking smoother and firmer.
The 3 peptides incorporated into this delicate, easily absorbed cream are Matrixyl® 3000, Trylagen® and Matrixyl® Synthé 6®.
- Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 + Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (Matrixyl® 3000) is a combination of five natural amino acids and has been incorporated in this formula for its anti-ageing properties.
- Trylagen® is a combination of peptides and proteins proven to restore collagen levels that are characterised by youthful skin.
- Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin + Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38 (Matrixyl®
- Synthé 6®) stimulates six major constituents of the skin matrix and dermal-epidermal junction and assists in smoothing wrinkles and making the skin appear plumper.
Squalane is a plant derived emollient which moisturises and improves the elasticity of the skin. Squalane also lends a satin soft after-feel to the product.
Sodium Hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) is a mucopolysacharide that exists naturally in all living creatures. It can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and assists in hydration of the skin.
Tocopheryl Acetate (vitamin E) helps to quench free radicals, enhancing the effects of the skin’s natural sun protectors. It also assists in protecting collagen and making the skin look younger.
As the seasons change, so does my skin care routine. Lait U and P50 1970 every morning and evening. Valmont face scrub followed by Masque Visolastine E. every 4 days and in between, Masque Vivant. Yes, I do something extra for my skin everyday. Both masks can stay on for 10-20 minutes. Masking and exfoliating on the same night is a really wonderful way to give your skin the added punch of active ingredients. That’s why P50 1970 should be used daily. Even that slight exfoliation will increase the efficacy of all of your products. I will continue this probably through October.
And that’s just the beginning. The truth is, after the basic cleanse, exfoliate and tone; hydration, serums and sun protection always baffle clients. In the evening, I think of repairing my skin. Clarifying Surge from Valmont and Intensive Alpha Hydroxy Cream from Environ alternated for this darn sun damage. I always use Valmont Prime Contour or Factor 3 under my eyes at night. During the day, Factor 2. All from Valmont. Day cream is Creme ADN Elastine Marine Collagene Marin and Complex Royal, layered from BR. Now that fall is truly here, I’m going to modify my daily SPF. The Mineral Spray from Dr. Gross is an SPF 50. Normally I would go down to a 30 but because of my sun damage, I will be getting a few photo facials in the coming months.
Check back in November to see what winter has in store for my skin!
Any mom will tell you, some days it’s a blessing if we can even take a shower let alone put makeup on. As a mother of two little ones, I spend more time cleaning up something sticky than throwing on some mascara. Over the past few years, I’ve had to adjust my beauty routine to keep up with my hectic lifestyle. Fortunately, Rescue offers plenty of services and products that will keep moms looking like they actually had more than three hours of sleep. Here are my top “three busy mommy beauty tricks”:
At Rescue, our Xtreme eyelash extension service is a game changer for women on the go. Each eyelash is gently applied to your lashes without damage with a safe hypoallergenic glue, which gives you gorgeous eyelashes only requiring maintenance to refill them every 2/3 weeks. In the summer, I spend a lot of time outside chasing my kids around, sweating, or taking a dip in the pool. Extensions give a long, voluminous look, that’s on par with my favorite mascara but without the downside of smudging, reapplying, or clumpy lashes. With my custom lashes, I can roll out of bed and throw on a touch of makeup in under five minutes!
2. Preventative Cleansing
In mom world, sleep is a king. But sometimes, taking that extra step to wash your face after putting the little ones down can seem like a hassle. However, preventative care can save money down the line and keep your face looking young. With toddlers running around, I needed to come up with a quick skin care routine. To start, use Lait U cleansing milk, which works to deeply cleanse the pores. Follow the cleanse with Lotion P50 to keep your face balanced and glowing. Next, apply a little Biologique Recherche Le Grand Serum, which helps to prevent aging, smooth the skin, and keep the face plumped. Finally, finish your bedtime routine with a bit of Environ moisturizer to keep the skin well hydrated. Voilà!––not only will your wallet thank you after you’ve gotten the kids off to college, but your skin will thank you too.
The quickest way to age your skin is through sun damage. Jan Marini not only smells great, but it has excellent SPF coverage and a light, airy feel that won’t make you feel oily. Too busy for foundation? Try Jan Marini that has a bit of tinted bronzer to give your face a bit of color. With summer coming, it’s an easy step to pop into a morning routine to give your a face a fresh, dewy look.
Need a break from the kids entirely? Come visit one of our estheticians at Rescue for a full skin consultation, one of our premier facials, or simply relax in the spa as you sip your tea and let the stress melt away.
