Much of our food lacks the quantity and quality our bodies’ require and specialist nutritional supplements for the skin ‘nutraceuticals’ are a growing trend.

Cosmeceutical creams also penetrate and affect the dermal layer, different from cosmetics that only replenish the outer epidermis mainly by preventing dehydration. Dr Des Fernandes, founder and scientific director of Environ Skin Care, says: “Aging skin is a direct result of sun-induced vitamin A deficiency. Correct the deficiency and you’ll have more radiant-looking skin.” It is the only known molecule that helps keep the skin healthy and helps to provide anti-aging benefits and therefore the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ skin care philosophy. It must be replaced daily for skin to appear healthier and more resilient and resulted in the creation of the world’s first Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM™
It has been proved that sufficient vitamin A:

- Strengthens the effects of the skin’s outer layer to keep it looking firm
- Stimulates the production of natural protein to keep skin looking healthy
- Supports the skin’s immune system to help prevent breakouts
- Assists in reducing the likelihood of the development of potential skin cancers, giving you greater peace of mind
