My skincare routine has changed since I started working here in Celebrate Skin. I don’t use as many products now. I used to use cleanser, toner, day and night creams, serums, eye gel, SPF, and foundation. Now I only use my cleanser, moisturiser, eye gel, SPF or BB Cream with SPF and my skin has never been as healthy. I have suffered from Rosacea & Vascular Skin (Broken Capillaries) since I turned 40 and it really affected me. My skin would go red and sting if I ate spicy food or drank alcohol. I spent so much money on different products, and none addressed the issue just masked it. I was so happy when Environ worked and its less expensive and I have healthy looking skin without having to wear heavy makeup.
The products I use are:
Environ Cleansing Lotion – contains Jojoba Seed Oil (dissolves Sebum) & Olive Oil Esters (moisturisers the skin) this lotion is gentle while it cleanses the face and always remove with a warm face cloth. Don’t use cotton wool as it drags on the skin and causes sensitivity when your skin is already sensitive. I don’t use toner as it can cause sensitivity in rosacea skin types.
Environ Vita-Peptide Eye Gel – contains peptides such as Matrixyl 3000 (stimulates Collagen) & Argireline (slows down muscle contraction & smooths out fine lines) as well as Vitamin A, C, E. This is a great product and have noticed a big difference around my eye area.
Environ Sebu Ace & Sebu Lac – my moisturisers. These contain Tea Tree Oil (anti-bacterial) Tea Tree Leaf Oil (Balances over production of Oil & Bacteria) Lactic Acid (Digest dead skin cells) Vitamin A (Medium Level to heal & repair skin) Vitamins C & E. As it is medium level Vitamin A you need to wear SPF daily either a separate SPF or Glow time BB cream with SPF 25. This is my favourite product my skin has changed dramatically on this, I used 3 drops of each and rub into my face, neck & chest day & night.
Environ Super Moisturiser – I am only using this now as the weather has changed and my skin has started to get dry. It doesn’t contain Vitamin A so anybody can use it and is especially good if you have a retinoid reaction or just have dry skin. It contains Pentavitin (holds moisture for 72 hours) Shea Butter & Lanolin (soothing and hydrating especially good for Psoriasis or eczema clients)
Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream – this is a 3 in 1 product it contains concealer, foundation and SPF 25. I love this BB Cream it gives full coverage and no irritation to my skin; you can apply a few layers along with bronzer / blusher for a night-time look. Plus you have your SPF 25 so it is protecting your skin as well as nourishing it.
