1 Environ Tri-Biobotanical Revival Masque

ARE you looking for a visible difference in your skin in 10 minutes? Well, this is the mask for you and it is suitable for all skin types.

This will address the signs of ageing, uneven texture and tone and sun-damaged skin. Environ call it a “facelift in a jar”.

The combination of ingredients make it possible to achieve visibly luminous, radiant, smoother, younger and revitalised skin.

It contains three different acids — the first one is Asiatic acid. This is a powerful ingredient that helps to promote the production of growth factors which helps to dramatically tighten the skin. The second acid is lactic acid, which helps promote the natural moisturising factors in the skin.
Finally, mandelic acid helps reduce the appearance of open pores and pigmentation, giving the skin a radiant quality.

2. Dual Action Pre-cleansing Oil
I am a huge fan of Environ’s pre-cleansing oil as I find it really speeds up the my cleansing routine at the end of a busy day, allowing for the application of serums and moisturisers.

On application it’s an oil, so it’s brilliant for dissolving make-up. I then wet my hands and continue to massage in the oil. It becomes a milky emulsion and is brilliant for leaving the skin feeling clean and refreshed, while maintaining the natural acid mantle of the skin.

It is also suitable for the removal of waterproof eye make-up.

This product can be used on all skin types and contains the active ingredients coconut oil triester, which help to remove any oil debris from the surface of the skin and decongests and unblocks the pores. It also contains jojoba seed oil, which helps protect the acid mantle thus preventing water loss.

3. Sensi-Age Matis
I JUST love this product. In the many years of treating clients, I have not always had a product that would address two of the biggest skin concerns: sensitivity and ageing.

It was not always possible to address the two issues at the same time, but now Matis Paris have formulated a product called Sensi-Age. This will reduce wrinkles and also reduce skin sensitivity. It can be used morning and night and is suitable for women aged 35 and older.
The cocktail of active ingredients include hyaluronic acid which soothes and hydrates the skin. A muscle relaxant ingredient relaxes the features, reduces wrinkles and improves the elasticity by stimulating collagen and
elastin synthesis.

4. Global Eyes: Eye Global Repairing cream

If you are over 25yrs and are concerned with puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles and sagging of the delicate eye area this is the product for you. We all know the importance of using an eye cream and the younger we start using one the better this Global Repairing eye cream can be used morning and night with a blend of ingredients suitable for the delicate eye contour area. Some of the active ingredients include Algolift this helps to tighten the structure of collagen so giving a lift to the area and also preventing the formation of wrinkles. Silk tree help to prevent dark circles and puffiness and Matcha Tea plant water which stimulates the micro circulation to reduce bags and dark circles and prevent the aging of this very fragile area. All the ingredients work together to smooth the entire eye contour.

I DO lots of advance treatments in the salon and the product I always
apply is K Ceutic.

These treatments can leave the skin hot, red and uncomfortable so it is brilliant to have confidence in an SPF that is also going to repair, moisturise, protect and soothe the skin. It also has a tint of colour so that the client does not feel so conscious leaving the salon.
