Every skin that is exposed to ultraviolet light, needs to replenish its Vitamin A. Yes, that is you, and everyone else living on planet earth.
So why is Vitamin A so essential for the health of everyone's skin? No matter if you are male or female, live in a third world country or in the most advanced city in the world, are young or old, the fundamental physiology of the skin is the same in every human. Occurring naturally within your skin, Vitamin A supplies are continually being depleted by constant exposure to ultraviolet light. The consequences of low Vitamin A levels can be; sun damage leading to the formation of skin cancers (solar keratosis, basel cell carcinomas), premature ageing (photo ageing), chronic skin conditions and sensitivities, severe acne and pigmentation. Environ's founder Dr Des Fernandes (plastic surgeon) sadly lost two patients under the age of 23 to malignant melanomas. He felt he needed to discover a way to strengthen the skin to prevent the nasty effects of sun damage. Vitamin A was the answer! Since 1987, Dr Des Fernandes has been the pioneer of topically applied Vitamin A cosmetics.
Quintessential, Vitamin A is a skin normaliser... It is essential for preventing, minimising and possibly reversing damage caused to the skin by ultraviolet light and environmental factors. Vitamin A needs to be topically applied to the skin daily. For optimal skin health, your skin needs to be rich in Vitamin A to function efficiently. The use of topical Vitamin A is recommended to start in children as young as two years old. We need to protect young skin from the irreparable damage their skin faces on a daily basis. Just remember prevention is much better than a cure!
There are many forms of Vitamin A; Retinyl Palmitate, Retinyl Acetate, Retinyl Esters, Retinol (Retinyl Alcohol), Retinal (Retinyl Aldehyde), RetinoicnAcid. If your cosmetic product does not contain the correct form or dosage it can either be ineffective or irritating on your skin. The Environ theory works on a 'Step-up' system, where you begin on the minimum dose of Retinyl Palmitate and step your way up to level 5 which contains a combination of Retinyl Palmitate and Retinyl Acetate. This allows your skin to become accustomed while it is reintroduced to Vitamin A. Dr Des Fernandes believes that Vitamin A needs to be used in combination with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, beta-carotene and antioxidants. These extra ingredients help combat free-radical damage caused by sun exposure. All Environ Skin Care products contain an adequate dose of all vitamins and anti-oxidants.
A strong, healthy, radiant, glowing, youthful skin is the result of topically applied Vitamin A! Personal Skin chooses to use Environ, a scientific skin care range.
