Are you suffering from Breakouts and Acne? Environ Can Help Your Skin

There are a million and one supposed solutions and quick fixes to problematic acne-prone skin found online. But before we get to any possible solutions to these problems, let’s take a look at what causes those pesky breakouts.

What causes Acne and Breakouts?

Spots including acne and breakouts are caused by the overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous gland. These can be influenced by hormonal changes and stress.

Solutions to Acne and Breakouts

The solution is to cleanse the skin without stripping it. Using topical and oral vitamin A products from Environ can normalise the skin and oil production. The entire Focus Care Clairty+ Range has been specifically formulated to calm the appearance of breakouts, and help prevent further spots.

Environ founder Dr Des Fernandez says that the focus of the range was in ‘cleaning, controlling and clearing the skin.’

The below products are a part of the Focus Care Clarity+ Range from Environ. To purchase the products click the links.

How can I deal with breakouts? 

1.Cleanse 

Sebu-Wash Gel Cleanser helps to combat the appearance of congestion and excess oil.

It gently cleanses and removes dirt and excess surface oils while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture balance. Suitable for oily, breakout-prone and congested skin. Use morning and evening before toning with Sebu-Tone Clarifier.

2. Control

Vita-Botanical Sebu-Ace Oil is scientifically formulated with vitamins and botanicals, this lightly textured, non-greasy oil helps to control the appearance of breakouts by providing your skin with a daily dose of essential vitamins.

‘Most people suffering from breakouts believe that they must avoid oils at all costs, now this is not true – we actually need oils.’ – Dr Des. Fernandez

Mix Sebu-Ace Oil with Sebu-Lac Lotion in equal parts in the palm of your hand and then gently massage into the affected areas. Use morning and evening for the best results to help improve your problem areas. Hydroxy Sebu-Lac Lotion combats breakout signs and assists the texture and tone of breakouts. Lactic Acid exfoliates and combined especially to moisturise and smooth the skin.

3. Clear

The third and final step, according to Environ founder Dr Des Fernandez is to clear up the skin. The products discussed above contain vitamins essential to helping to keep the skin breakout free, but in addition to the topical application of cleansers, toners and lotions, the use of Supplements from Advanced Nutrition Programme has proven to help achieve clear skin. Treating breakouts from the inside out – try Skin Accumax Supplements for clearer skin.

Skin Accumax is a brand new nutritional supplement that works from within providing clear, flawless skin naturally. Skin Accumax contains a completely unique patented and exciting ingredient called DIM which works from the inside out. This scientifically advanced formulation enables the active nutrients to work together much better than they would individually.

DIM is a clever plant compound that has been patented! You will not find this unique combination of ingredients in any other supplement. We have combined DIM with a special blend of vitamins known for maintaining healthy skin. Take one or two capsules twice a day with meals or as your health professional advises. To get the full benefit of this product, we recommend starting with two Skin Accumax™ twice a day for 14 weeks.

Environ Skin Instruments

We have a selection of Skincare Instruments available from Environ here on The Skin Clinic Direct Online Beauty Boutique. They might seem a little daunting at first, so we have put together a short introduction into Skin Instruments.

Starting with derma-rolling or micro-needling, as it is also known. This has recently exploded in the skincare and beauty communities as a revolutionary method of delivering the essential vitamins and nutrients into the skin. These tools should be used alongside Environ products in order to get the most out of derma-rolling, and the products themselves.

Environ has the Cosmetic Focus-CIT  which is a small, hand-held stamp needling instrument embedded with durable stainless steel 0.1mm micro-needles. It is small enough to allow you to focus on specific problem areas, and smaller more difficult to reach areas of the face such as the upper lip and eye area.

We also have the Cosmetic Roll-CIT which provides a similar function but with a larger roller device, ideal for use on the whole face and neck.

These tools are designed to be used in conjunction with Environ products. They aid the deep penetration into the skin of important vitamins in Environ products. Tiny needles puncture through the outermost layer of the skin, prompting the natural wound healing process, and allowing environ products to penetrate the skin further

Dr Des Fernandes, Environ Founder and Scientific Director says that “skin needling induced collagen and elastic production” and that “the procedure can be safely repeated until the desired effect is achieved”
