SPONSORED: Stressed out? The demanding nature of modern life can do a real number on your skin, but Environ Skin Care’s new night serum is here to help.
These days, life is so fast-paced it can often be overwhelming – being stressed seems inevitable. Advances in neuroscience and cosmetic research continue to reveal more about the complex and fascinating connection between the brain and skin¹. These discoveries, combined with Environ’s extensive skincare research, have led to the development of another ground-breaking innovation:
Environ’s new Focus Care Youth+® Seriénce™ Night Serum. Offering skin serenity with overnight science, this advanced booster targets the negative long-term effects of stress to reveal serene, luminous, and youthful-looking skin.
When both the brain and skin release stress hormones like cortisol², the skin reacts immediately and is often the target of stress responses. In the case of prolonged exposure to external and internal stressors (emotional, physical and mental stress, pollution, smoke, sleep deprivation and UV exposure), skin cells keep producing cortisol. Compounded over time, high concentrations of this primary stress hormone can compromise immunity and threaten skin barrier functioning. This can result in a dull, fatigued appearance and aggravated signs of ageing such as lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
A BREAKTHROUGH FORUMULATION
Seriénce™ Night Serum is formulated with an intelligent malachite-neuropeptide complex that is scientifically proven to protect, reset, relax and reconnect the skin from within, cell by cell, night after night.
Known for centuries as a powerful stone of transformation, malachite extract offers potent antioxidant benefits that can boost skin cell immunity and defence against environmental stressors.
A rapid, responsive and calming neuropeptide derived from Wild Indigo seed extract, this helps not only with dull-looking skin but it can also counteract the negative effects of stress hormones in the skin.
This all-in-one peptide targets the effects of fatigue and post expression muscle relaxation to help visibly smooth and improve the signs of lines and wrinkles.
A hard-working peptide, this smooths the appearance of frown lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds and crow’s feet by assisting to re-establish vital skin connections and rebuild an optimally functioning network.
Environ encourages a progressive and integrative approach to counteracting the harmful effects of stress, offering opportunities for improvement in the quality of your skin. In today’s world, selfcare is essential – the skin speaks what the body and mind feel.
Focus Care Youth+® Seriénce™ Night Serum retails for R995 (recommended retail price).
