According to research, Vitamin A one of the only ingredients that penetrate the top layer of the skin to produce smoother skin and heal problems such as pigmentation.The Environ line is designed so the user can progress from a low dose in vitamin A to the highest acceptable for a non-prescription treatment.
The waiting room was peopled by young women with obvious skin problems like acne and pigmentation which I couldn’t help noticing. This is the oil in my face, apparently a good thing.
My consult with senior therapist Anisa Brown began with the over-35 woman’s worst nightmare: the VISIA camera. Here we have – indicated by the purple dots – a lovely illustration of enlarged pores. Hopefully not as recognisable to the naked eye as it is here but nonetheless here.
If you haven’t yet had one of these and want a skin wake up call to get you out of the sun or to stop smoking or doing anything else to damage your skin this is it. Anisa again said this isn’t the worst thing in the world because it helps products penetrate. I have freckly skin which Anisa says is kind of natural and okay, but I also have big swathes of darker pigment along my jaw, forehead and the sides of my eyes.

Anna Magee braved it When you hear the words vitamin facial, you probably think of some natural vitamin C sources such as orange or spinach being sloughed onto your face.That’s about as far from the Environ Vitamin Facial it’s possible to get.It comes from the International Institute for Anti-Ageing (IIAA) whose skincare line, Environ, together with their Advanced Nutrition Programme skin supplements line, fuses beauty therapy, nutrition and medical grade ingredients.The result is a three-pronged attack on wrinkles and ageing that takes into account scientifically proven ingredients and skin delivery methods to make changes to whatever signs of ageing your face is showing.Environ is formulated by Dr Des Fernandes, a plastic surgeon and created with a basis of Vitamin A, probably the most highly researched skincare ingredient on the planet.Although dermatologists prescribe it at high percentages in products such as retinol for wrinkles and skin pigmentation or Roaccutane, a powerful anti-acne drug, it’s also available in lower concentrations without prescriptions.
