Skincare News from Harper Beauty
The Environ skin care range was first formulated by Dr Fenandes’ a plastic surgeon, who was attempting to treat the melanomas of two young patients, unfortunately both died before they were 23 years-old. Such a horrifying experience leaves an indelible scar on one’s life as a doctor. For this reason, he started to study the mechanism of skin cancer and the skin – and thus Environ was born.
Fact: Vitamin A is the only ingredient that is capable of reprogramming cells.
Vitamin A works by normalising skin functions so it corrects all skin conditions. Skin becomes thin because of a general lack of Vitamin A, sun damage, loss of hormones, general aging and excess exposure to stress. If the skin is not assisted by proper nutrition, which contributes to healthy cell behaviour, the end result will be malnutrition. Just as humans become very thin when they are starving and undernourished, so too does the skin, when it lacks essential vitamins and nutrients.
Vitamin A thickens and stimulates the Dermis – where your collagen, elastin and blood vessels are – so it reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. Vitamin A actually increases the deposition of collagen and slows the breakdown of your collagen and elastin from normal aging.
Vitamin A also:
normalises blood flow and helps reduce the symptoms of rosacea and wound healing
exfoliates – making skin smooth and even toned
repairs the cellular structure of the epidermis – optimising your UV protection
decreases clustering of melanin granules – so reduces brown spots or pigmentation
decreases sebum production and treats acne brilliantly
promotes a healthy cellular membrane
improves hydration both in and around the cell
Topical Vitamin A needs to be professionally prescribed and introduced slowly so that your skin can acclimatise and rebuild its strength. There are many forms of Vitamin A and after a complimentary consultation I will be able to make the perfect recommendation for your skin.
During the months of March and April I have an amazing offer with my Environ Bespoke Facial:
2 facials for the price of 1, for only $130. That’s only $65 each!
You can experience and see the difference using Environ will make. To make it easy, you can use them both for yourself, or gift one to a friend if you choose.
