WHY VITAMIN A CAN SLOW DOWN AGEING SKIN
Many of our customers do not realise that Vitamin A is otherwise known as Retinol, which plays an important role in everyday skincare. Retinol is known to work as a natural sunscreen because it absorbs UV energy.
Exposure to the sun plays a large role in damaging our skin and that is mainly due to the sun damaging the Vitamin A that is found in our skin on a cellular level.
Vitamin A stimulates the production of collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates cell turnover, decreases oil-production and has anti-inflammatory effects.
At the Little Parlour, we use ground-breaking skincare products from Environ. They performed research to show that Vitamin A is the one molecule that plays a vital role in our metabolic processes. It works on the DNA in our bodies that determine the behaviour of stem cells. Vitamin A is then able to influence our cells to behave in a younger, healthier way.
Vitamin A is irreplaceable for the skin. There is simply no alternative for healthy skin at a cellular level.Dr Des Fernandes, Environ Founder and Scientific Director.
What does Vitamin A do?
- normalises the appearance of pigmentation
- stimulates collagen production
- reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- speeds healing and normalises oil production
- prevents breakouts and supports the skin’s immune system
All of the Environ skincare products we use in the salon have Vitamin A as a cornerstone ingredient. As a company, they believe the use of Vitamin A in your skincare routine is a marathon, not a sprint.
We therefore promote the Step-Up System skincare routine by Environ because it starts low and slow allowing your skin to become accustomed to the increasing levels of Vitamin A. Start to use Vitamin A once every three days and then increase to every other day and then every day as your skin grows accustomed to it.
