Introduction to Environ
If you have visited the FX studio recently, you’ve undoubtedly heard us raving about the newest addition to our skin care product assortment: Environ.
Environ is a professional skin care brand whose goal is to help replenish the skin with essential nutrients lost by exposure to the sun and environmental factors. As a client of ours, you know that skin nutrition is one of our primary strategies. Environ is a perfect fit!
Skin and the Environment
Exposure to environmental elements, such as pollution and ever-increasing doses of solar radiation, significantly depletes the vitamins in our skin. Repeated exposure to these elements and constant depletion of our vitamin stores can lead to detrimental changes in the way skin functions, resulting in visible signs of photo-damage, aging, and skin cancers.
Environ products are specifically formulated to combat and relieve the harmful effects of these environmental challenges.
How Environ Works
Environ’s philosophy centers around their cornerstone ingredient for environmental defense: vitamin A
Vitamin A is an essential nutrient for the health of the skin that helps to normalize skin cell activity and provides anti-aging and general skin health benefits. Unfortunately, this key vitamin is rapidly depleted by sun exposure and other environmental factors. As such, it must be replenished daily for the skin to appear healthier and more resilient.
Dr. Dez Fernandez, Environ’s founder, pioneered the use of high-levels of vitamin A in skin care products to counteract the negative impact of stress and the elements and continues to inspire the industry with his focus on skin vitamins.
Why We Love Environ
One of our favorite features of Environ is its unique and highly effective ‘step-up’ system.
While everyone agrees that vitamin A is vital to skin health, it is not an easy ingredient to work with. Deficiencies of vitamin A in the skin can result in the skin becoming irritated when too much or the wrong form of vitamin A is applied topically.
The Environ step-up system starts low and goes slow, gently introducing gradual doses of vitamins A, C, E, and other vital ingredients in a manner that
encourages the skin to absorb and utilize the ingredients and minimizes the chance of skin irritation. As skin becomes accustomed to the nutrients, the step-up system progressively introduces higher and higher levels of ingredients, restoring and reviving skin’s overall health and well-being for long-term results.
