About 4 years ago, I was sitting in on a lecture, eager to learn new techniques for my facial treatments.
The presenter showed an image of a client with severe melasma, hormone-induced hyperpigmentation. As the room filled with awe in response to the image, I overheard one woman whisper to another about products she saw work miracles in a spa she worked at in New York City.
Miracles? That’s high praise for products targeting an increasingly common skin condition that seemed impossible to fix. The amazing find: Environ - a South African skincare brand.
Founded by Cape Town-based plastic surgeon Dr. Des Fernandes in 1990, the award-winning line features potent skin-revitalizing formulas designed to replace essential skin nutrients depleted by exposure to sun and environmental factors.
The range’s star ingredient is vitamin A, combined with antioxidants and peptides.
While vitamin A-related retinoids are often associated with redness and irritation, Dr. Fernandes’ innovative “step-up system” allows the user to become accustomed to a low dose of the vitamin, before ramping up and graduating to progressively higher potencies.
I am so happy and honored to work with Environ where I can bring life-changing results and skin transformations to face and body!
