Its really only from blogging that I have learnt so much about skincare and what we actually really need plus  what to look out for in products. Only last year did I actually really introduce Vitamin A into my routine with Environ which has made such an improvement in my skin. I actually had no idea how important it actually was. So let’s talk about why we need Vitamin A in our skincare routine.

In basic terms Vitamin A is the skin normaliser according to the creator of Gr8 Skincare that is launching in SA. If you don’t have Vitamin A that is the driving process in your skincare routine then there is no point using any other Vitamins on your skin. Basically without Vitamin A none of your other products will work. If your skin is oily or too dry Vitamin A will normalise it. The average person doesn’t actually know this plus with all those products out there it gets really confusing.

According to Environ’s creator Dr Des Fernandes “Ageing skin is due to sun induced Vitamin A deficiency. By correcting the skin with Vitamin A you will have more radiant skin.” Basically without Vitamin A in our routine there are more skin abnormalities, such as pigmentation, sun damage, ageing and even skin cancer. Sadly these are things that we are just not educated about. The best way to combat all these things is to make sure we have Vitamin A in our skincare routine so as to replenish the Vitamin A in our cells every day.

I started  using Vitamin A last October and already I have seen a massive improvement in my hydration, pores (which I didn’t even realise were that bad), wrinkles around my eyes and my overall complexion looks great. After just after 4 months of using the skin analysis showed even though I am 42 I have the skin of a 36 year old and that will just keep improving. With Environ you build up your Vitamin A starting with Sequence 1 and working your way up to 4. I am now on 2 plus I go for facials twice a month where I get even more Vitamin A into my cells. I apply the Vitamin A currently both day and night but the dosage still isn’t that high.

With brands like GR8 Skincare hers works differently with just the night Reset serum, that includes all you need a night which is Vitamin A and C, probiotics and antioxidants. By having the Vitamin A at night the skin can reset and normalise and help it to become problem free.

Some brands suggest to use Vitamin A just at night but I suppose that all depends on the dosage as well especially when you are applying Retinol thats just a night time routine due to its potency.

Benefits of Vitamin A:

  • Hydrated due to the skin’s natural moiturising factor leaves skin glowing.
  • Strengthens the skin outer layer.
  • Stimulates the skin’s natural protein to keep skin looking healthy.
  • Supports the immune system and prevents breakouts (initially the skin adjusts so you may have some breakouts. I literlly had mount everest on my chin in the beginning but then it all settled.)
  • Reduces the risk of skin cancer.

Next week I will chat more about Retinol because otherwise I will be here all day. If you haven’t got Vitamin A in your routine then get on it.

Thanks to Ruby Box and of course Environ I got to out these gorgeous skincare products to the test the past month. Its all about focus on flawless skin with Environ skincare. By using Environ your skin will be thanking you for it and of course your skin’s texture and hydration will massively improve. In this post I chat about 3 of the products that are actually add ons to the Vitamin A range which is the corner stone of the brand. The Focus Moisture + and Focus Care Youth + that really focus on hydration and anti ageing. Its really a toss up of which is my favourite product its a close tie between the Vita Antioxidant Oil Capsules and the Revival Masque. My skin is feeling so amazing at the moment that I have actually incorporated the Vitamin A Environ products into my beauty regime. Plus wait for it!!! One of you lucky readers will WIN all 3 products so keep on reading.

After attending the launch of the new products for Environ and seeing what results the brand gives I couldn’t wait to try. The Environ Vita-Antioxidant Oil Capsules from the Focus Moisture + range was one of the first products I got busy testing. What I can say so far is that I wake up every morning with super soft glowing skin. They are little capsules of heaven that feel amazing when I massage in and just give my skin a great start to the day.
