4 Summer Skin Care Changes You Should Make to Your Routine
It’s been a long winter and the dry cold air hasn’t been all that kind to your skin. Now’s the time to refresh your skin care routine and ensure that you’re ready for summer. Here are 4 ways to reveal your true beauty.
A good facial gives your skin a much needed post-winter boost by helping to rehydrate it, refresh and revive dry and dull-looking skin. Kick start your skin care routine by treating yourself to Environ’s technologically advanced facial treatment performed by one of our expert Skin Care Professionals.
Central to the Performance Intelligence of any Environ Facial is the Environ Ionzyme® DF Machine and the various powerhouse formulations of the Environ Professional Range. The dual electro-sonic technology of the Ionzyme® DF Machine helps to (1) stimulate the skin and create tiny cavitations through low frequency sonophoresis (sound waves) and (2) deliver more essentials nutrients to where your skin needs them most by ionizing active molecules and diffusing them into the skin through pulsed iontophoresis (electric current).
A series of Environ Facials can make a noticeable and lasting difference to your skin by giving your skin the essential nutrients that it needs, where it needs them most, so that it looks healthier, more plump and beautiful and feels hydrated, soft and smooth.

You know that your epidermis (the outer layer of your skin) is your first line of defence, but did you know that this layer is only 0.2mm thick? You may have heard that exfoliation helps to reveal a refreshed complexion by assisting in the removal of dead skin cells that have built up over the winter months. But, if you think about it, using harsh or granular scrubs may damage the health and integrity of the epidermis, which is why you should consider using more gentle micro-exfoliants.
Your best choice as part of your essential skincare routine is the Original Balancing Masque. It contains Kaolin Clay which is known to help gently polish skin, unclog pores and remove excess surface oils. It also contains vitamins E and B5 which help to hydrate the skin, making it feel smoother and softer and glowing with a healthy looking radiance.
In the warmer months, it’s a good idea to consider using a moisturiser that doesn’t weigh your skin down. Environ Original Debut is the choice you should make for skin that has a healthy-looking radiant glow. It’s the first level in our unique Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™. It contains low levels of essential skin nutrients (vitamins A, C and E as well as antioxidants) that help to improve skin’s overall appearance and combat harmful free radicals. Using this moisturiser daily can also assist in softening the appearance of fine lines, in improving uneven skin tone and in repairing the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
First, cleanse and tone using your preferred Environ products and then apply the Original Debut moisturiser to your face and neck. Do this in the morning and evening. As your skin gets used to the vitamin A, usually after 2-3 tubes, you can then step-up to moisturisers containing a higher concentration of vitamin A.
Now that we are moving into the summer months, your skin will be exposed to more sun and we all know that this increased exposure to UV-A and UV-B rays can exacerbate the visible signs of ageing. Environ’s RAD SPF15 is a broad spectrum sun protection cream containing sun filters and reflectors to provide medium protection, along with antioxidants, beta-carotene and vitamins C and E which are known to help fight the effects of free-radicals.
After your skin prep routine, moisturise with your prescribed vitamin A moisturiser and then apply RAD SPF15 to face, neck and décolleté and all areas exposed to the sun. Reapply frequently, every 90 min to 2 hrs to achieve optimal protection, when exposed to midday sun.
Step up your skin care routine and keep it radiantly beautiful this summer.
