It’s so overwhelming nowadays trying to find the right skincare brands or the right skincare products for our skin. There are so many trends popping up all over Instagram, and Influencers giving us all sorts of reviews claiming that this or that product is a must-have and that they swear by it. We see celebrities coming up with their own skincare lines and selling them at different stores, or online. But how do you know if those products actually do work for you? Or if those skincare brands are safe for you to use? What skincare brands do estheticians use?
Well, that’s where we come in. All of our licensed estheticians have many years of experience in the world of beauty and skincare. We’ve treated all sorts of skin types and skin concerns, and have studied and researched the best brands not just for our clients, but for ourselves! Today, we’re here to spill some of our best-kept secrets: a licensed esthetician-approved skin care routine.
Environ is hands downs an esthetician’s dream. This brand was created by Dr. Des Ferndes. If you don’t know who Dr. Des Fernandes is, well – he’s just one of the top 5 plastic surgeons in the world! He developed this skincare brand after years of research into the use of Vitamin A, and the healing properties as well as anti-aging properties that Vitamin A has. In fact, Vitamin A is almost like a fountain of youth skin care ingredient. Yes, it’s that great. Environ uses an innovative technology called the Vitamin Step-Up System, in which you slowly increase the amount of Vitamin A in your moisturizer so that your skin can slowly adapt to Vitamin A. It reduces sun damage, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
