SKIN RESCUE AND PREP PACK
Now that we have a date for resuming facials and skin treatments, I have been thinking about ideas to get everyone’s skin up to speed to get the best results from your treatments. The combination of lockdown and winter has affected all of us, and if the number of calls and online chats with clients are anything to go by, even people who don’t normally suffer with outbreaks, dryness, oiliness or inflammation, have suddenly found their skin playing up.
Having facial skin treatments on top of compromised skin doesn’t give us the results we want, and leads to disappointment, but by adding in one or two targeted products to your normal skin routine helps to repair your skin’s barrier function and will pay dividends when you do eventually get back on our treatment couch.
YOUTH + TRI BIO BOTANICAL REVIVAL MASQUE
It’s a bit wordy, so basically I just call it Revival Masque! When this was first launched, Dr Des Fernandes, the founder and scientific adviser at Environ Skincare, named it his ‘Facelift In A Bottle’. It’s a bit of a bold claim, but I can say from personal experience, this is definitely a masque that delivers results. From the moment you apply it, you can feel your skin tightening.
There are 3 key acids contained in the Revival Masque:
Asiatic, lactic and mandelic - all three combine to achieve the following.
Skin tightening and lifting
Reduction and prevention of pigmentation
Reduce pore size and give your skin a radiant quality
This masque can be used 5-7 nights a week whilst you sleep for optimal skin regeneration. It’s not necessary to be using the Environ Vitamin A skincare to benefit from the Revival Masque, but of course the results will be even better when combining the two
Depending on how often you use it, it will last for months, and there’s no short shelf life, as it’s main ingredients are acids

YOUTH + TRI PEPTIDE AVANCE ELIXIR
Another long title - I call it Peptide Elixir. There are specific peptides that your skin needs in order to promote collagen and prevent premature skin ageing, which are derived from amino acids. These all occur naturally in the skin until, guess what, the skin starts to age, around 25 years.
There are 4 main peptides in this serum:
Matrixyl 3000 - a combination of 7 natural amino acids helping to stimulate healthy collagen and elastin
Trylagen - a combination of peptides and proteins acting on all stages of collagen production from formation to maturation
Matrixyl Synthe 6 - stimulates 6 major constituents of the skin and supports the collagen fibres creating a firmer skin structure
Meritage - targets the 3 signs of ageing - dehydration, wrinkles and pigmentation
I use this serum every day. It’s a hard worker, and boosts the results of the Vitamin A moisturisers
