It was one of those moments.
A moment you don’t see coming, and then once it happens, you can’t imagine how things could have gone any differently or how your life could ever be the same again.
It all started about a week ago, alone in my hotel room, wondering what the next few days would hold, I’d already seen a little of what to expect, and with my anticipation on the rise, I started to get ready for the day ahead.
As I walked towards the bathroom, I spotted you, unassuming, clearly intelligent and yet despite this, I had not given you much thought until that moment.
What happened next was not so much a surprise but unexpected all the same, and from that moment on, our fates were sealed.
It was love at the first try.
Have you ever had this kind of experience? When your expectations and curiosity collide, and in an instant, you’ve found what you were always looking for. Finally, the search is over. It’s such a wonderful relief; your face softens, your furrowed brow relaxes, everything is going to be okay.
The object of my affection?
Environ Focus Care Moisture+ Vita-Complex Super Moisturiser. It’s a moisturiser but no ordinary moisturiser. Oh no, this time, it’s true love. A moisturiser that, from the moment you put it on your skin, you know you’ve found the one for you.
Why so special?
Well, normally, for me, the qualities of a good moisturiser are always about what’s inside. The actual ingredients. What are they going to do for my skin? What improvements can I expect in the days and weeks to come? All this is closely followed by how my skin feels throughout the day.
With all this in mind, what struck me was the instant feeling of relief. In fact, if I didn’t know better, I’d swear my skin had given out a little sigh and a quiet thank you.
Yes, it was love at first try.
This is no ordinary moisturiser that you might slap on your face and head out for the day without a second thought, oh no not at all, and I’m going to tell you why.
The perfect moisturiser will have ingredients to protect the lipid barrier and reduce water loss from the deeper layers of the skin.
Environ’s Focus Care Moisture+ Vita-Complex Super Moisturiser contains key ingredients necessary for skin health such as Glycerin, Lanolin, Shea Butter, Beeswax, Panthenol B5, vitamin E, Soybean Oil, Lipid Soluble vitamin C, and the important phospholipid known as Myristyl Malate Phosphonic Acid as well as Sunflower Seed Oil, Rosemary Leaf Extract and the botanicals, Limonene, Linalool.
But if you have chronic dryness, as lovely as Environ’s Super Moisturiser is, your skin may need a little more help; you may need the support of topically applied active ingredients like niacinamide, vitamin A and the free radical scavengers of the antioxidant formulations found in Environ’s Skin EssentiA Range.
Of course, as we humans are apt to do, all this excitement comes with a feeling of dread. It’s all wonderful now, but that initial feeling of love, that glow you’ve longed for, might end and all too soon.
You’ve finally found something so special; you dread the day the object of your affection fails to deliver. It’s happened before; it will happen again. It’s a pessimistic view. But I have an answer to this worry and fear.
Always look for the correct balance of moisturising ingredients. The inclusion of certain ingredients should be non-negotiable if your moisturiser is to do its job and protect your skin.
And, if you have chronic dehydration and dryness, you may need to sit down with a skincare professional and tell your whole story. And, with your worries and concerns allayed, with professional advice, you’ll have a planned skincare routine with recommendations for your skin type and specific conditions in mind.
