Birthdays, charity functions, even a date means the pressure to bring your best fashion, your best attitude, and, yes, your best skin. The signs of aging most men and women have a problem with are the obvious ones- lines and wrinkles. Other signs are age spots, sagging or “hollow” skin or overall dullness. Luckily, the remedy is consistent use of a skin care line with powerful ingredients to combat these noticeable effects of aging. The camera will be fooled, but you will know the real reason for your radiant, glowing skin.
Over the years, the top layer of skin, the epidermis, thins, which contributes to the look of more apparent wrinkles or sagging. Collagen levels drop about 1-2% every year after 20 years of age, so the skin essentially looks and acts more fragile. This is a common issue that can be treated with a few common Environ solutions-
Focus Care Youth + Concentrated Retinol Serums 1-3 are part of Environ’s advanced “step-up” philosophy using Vitamin A to reduce the look of wrinkles and lines or uneven skin tone. These powerful serums will help to reveal a firmer, smoother-looking skin.
Youth EssentiA Antioxidant Defense Cream utilizes both Vitamin A and C as well as antioxidants and peptides to moisturize the skin and defend against the environment.
Focus Care Moisture+ HA Hydrating Serum is an ultra-hydrating solution due to a high concentration of hyaluronic acid. The result? The appearance of smoother, plump-looking skin with the benefits of more resilience over time.
Areas of skin that are exposed to the sun are prone to revealing darker spots of pigmentation, often referred to as age spots or sun spots. Did you know that any type of dark spot on your skin is considered hyperpigmentation, an area with pigmentation, or color, appears in concentration? Think of freckles or sun spots. Fortunately, we have formulations that help brighten the look of the skin to reveal a more even-tone look.
Focus Care Radiance+ Intense C-Boost Mela-Even Cream is an oil-soluble Vitamin-C packed cream to help improve the look of uneven skin. This powerful, targeted solution also helps with the look of skin firmness.
C-quence Energising Masque is a gentle but highly effective micro-exfoliant mask that can be done anytime you want the look of heavy, glowing skin. The exfoliant will remove any dead skin cells and reveal a bright, even skin tone. Dullness no more.
Prepping for an Event
One to two weeks out is a good recommended time for a microdermabrasion, cool peel or similar signature Environ service. Let the skin breath and follow your normal skin care routine (cleanse, tone, moisturize, protect) in the days leading up to your event. The night before or the morning of, you may want to utilize a powerful brightening and resurfacing at-home treatment like the glycolic-acid gentle-but-effective exfoliating Revival Masque or the popular brightening, Vitamin C boost, C-quence Energising Masque. Either or is a sure way to give your skin a beautiful dewy appearance.
Afterwards, follow with your favorite retinol serum, moisturizer, primer and any other steps in your beauty routine. Giving your skin a week to breath after a service and then doing a brightening at-home mask before your event is going to give your face that fresh just-had-a-facial glow that cannot be replicated by any amount of photoshop.
Speaking of photographing well, here are a few tips.
- Always check your surroundings, especially the lighting. Look for a background with complementary colors, and look for a window that gives off a soft-glow.
- Beware harsh overhead lines that may create awkward shadows.
- Know your best “angles” to tilt your face slightly away from the camera.
- Have a signature photo “stance” like a common one: one or both hands on the hips, legs pulled together, with a big smile or a soft smize.
Your skin is sure to look stunning when the lighting and body posture is also giving off extreme confidence.
