Everything that defines healthy, beautiful skin is a direct result of vitamin A. It is the only known molecule that keeps the skin healthy and helps to provide anti ageing benefits.
Healthy skin has vitamin A present, some more and some less, this can be dependant on age and other factors in the environment. Vitamin A deficiency can lead to skin abnormalities such as pigmentation, ageing, and skin cancer.
The most common skin care problem in both men and women is sun damage, and the long term effects of sun exposure are sinister.
In order for us to combat this sun-induced vitamin A deficiency we must replenish vitamin A in our cells everyday and for this process to be effective, we need to restore our vitamin A receptors within the skin.
Vitamin A is crucial to the skins process repairing the DNA of cells, meaning vitamin A has a normalising effect on the skin to help repair damage and abnormalities present in the skin.
Vitamin A is the only known element that keeps skin healthy and combats ageing. It has been proven to that sufficient vitamin A:
- Promotes skin’s natural moisturising factor and gives a radiant glow
- Strengthens skin’s outer layer to keep it firm
- Stimulates the production of natural protein to keep the skin looking healthy
- Supports the skin’s immune system and help prevent breakouts
- Promote collagen and elastin production
Dr Des Fernades – South African skin cancer surgeon and founder of IIAA (International Institute of Anti Ageing) knew Vitamin A was essential for life which is why it is the cornerstone ingredient in the Environ skin care philosophy. Replacing Vitamin A daily, ensuring protection against the sun protecting the Vitamin A in the skin and stepping up the quantities over prescribed time, skin can be reborn and look healthy and beautiful for a life time.
