We are heading towards colder temperatures and harsh winds. Turning up central heating causing dry air can reduce the Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) in our skin which will results in dehydration, roughness and flakiness. Moving from centrally heated environments into the biting cold can cause broken capillaries and make rosacea worse. 

These are our 4 tops tips on how to deal with skin dehydration:

  1. 1. When the weather turns colder, it's tempting to reach for carbohydrates rich, sugary comfort foods. We recommend you increase the intake healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, oily fish and avocados to keep skin moisturised from the inside out.


  1. 2. Supplement yourself with Skin Omega+ to safeguard those essential fatty acid levels. Skin Omega+ is an exceptionally pure essential fatty acids to maintain your skin's lipid layer and minimise transepidermal water loss. It’s like an internal moisturiser for your skin.


  1. 3. Switch to an oil-based cleanser e.g. Environ Skin EssentiA Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil which is far kinder to your skin and wont strip of its natural lipids.  Your stratum corneium is extremely delicate and only 0.02mm thick, so, it’s very easily damaged by soaps and cleansers which contain harsh chemicals or required vigorous technique. Gently remove make-up with Environ Skin EssentiA Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil, followed by Environ Hydra-Intense Cleansing Lotion to lift away further impurities without stripping the stratum corneum.


  1. 4. Using the correct moisturiser and enhance your skin with skin boosters e.g. Environ Focus Hydrating Serum/Environ Super Moisturiser. Environ Focus Hydrating Serum contains hyaluronic acid which holds 1000 times its own weight in water to combat dehydration. For enhanced results, always use alongside the Environ Cosmetic Roll CIT

  1. Environ Super Moisturiser+ is a comforting cream specifically for dry skin, which regulates natural hydration levels and replenishes the moisture barrier.


Extra Tips: A Course of Environ Hydraboost or Environ Active Vitamin Facials will deeply hydrate skin with active ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid and lactic acid to smooth and moisturiser your skin.

#100DayReset Programme (Environ, Advanced Nutrition Programme, Jane Iredale)

Part III of Jane Hanna's Story from Day 60 to 100 - Read on to see how Jane achieved amazing results so far!


What can I say! What a journey! Jane has been up and down with her skin journey particularly during days 60 to 80! She did have a little breakout some days and I had advised Jane to come in for two more Environ Cool Peel Facials after her 6 course of Environ Cool Peel Facials previously. 


As her pastules and pustules started to disappear, Jane was left with some acne marks. Acne marks are different to scars as they are not raised/pitted. They are flat, pigment marks and in Jane's case they were red in colour.  Jane was quite concerned about her acne marks, I explained to her that these will fade between 3 to 6 months after her breakout has disappeared.

I explained to Jane that she should start taking Skin Omega+ capsules (Take two capsules a day) and Skin Vitamin C tablets (Take one tablet a day) along with her Skin Accumax capsules as the essential fatty acids and the high strength of Vitamin C will strengthen her skin's immune system, and assist in reducing inflammation and redness of her skin. I also encouraged Jane to keep up her good work with her Environ Skincare regimes - Vitamin A will repair and normalise her skin cells and apply SPF everyday which will prevent the acne marks from becoming darker and shorten their stay on the skin.

Here is the list of products that Jane is currently using

* Environ Sebuwash

* Environ Face & Body Oil

* Environ Colustum Gel

* Environ LACM 1

* Environ RAD SPF 15

We are going to let Jane explain her 100 Day Journey from Day 60 - 27th June 2017


I was going on holidays on July and I was worried that going away and being in the sun I would not able to follow my skincare regime. I made sure I packed all my Advanced Nutrition Supplements, Environ Skincare Products and Jane Iredale Mineral Skincare Products with me.


During the day I would leave my skin bare and just apply Environ RAD SPF 15 every few hours and make sure that  I wore a hat and stayed in the shade epsecially between 11am to 4pm. In the evening, I just applied my favourite Jane Iredale Mineral Pure Pressed Base Golden Glow with Jane Iredale Smooth Affair and made sure I spirtzed  my face with Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray a few times a day to keep my skin nourished, calm and hydrated.


I strictly followed Emi's (my skincare therapist) advise -  Advanced Nutrition Programe, Environ Skincare and Jane Iredale Skin Care Make Up on holiday that when I came back from my holiday I felt I have new skin as my skin had improved dramatically clearer, so much healthy and the best part the spots have finally disappeared. I am so over the moon and I cant wait to tell Emi my amazing result!


As each day goes, I am feeling more confident about my skin and myself!  My family and friends are complementing me so much that they makes me beam. I honestly cant believe how bad my skin was and how low I felt previously! I feel like such a different person now! My skin is rejunevated, brighter, healthy, glowing and I even noticed my pores are definitely smaller. I feel happy and healthy!


Looking at the pictures and comparing them is like looking at two different people. I cant believe what a difference this has to my life and to me as a person! I just want to say thank you so much to Emi for helping me on #100 Day Journey and I truly believe by following the THREE PHILOSOPHY on FEED (Advanced Nutiriton Programme), FORTIFY (Environ Skincare) and FINISH (Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup) you will get achieve beautiful healthy skin!

Jane Hanna Skin #100DayReset Part II (day 30-60)

#100DayReset Programme (Environ, Advanced Nutrition Programme, Jane Iredale)

Part II of  Jane Hanna's story from day 30 to 60 - Read on to see how Jane achieved amazing results so far !


This photo below was taken on 10 June 2017 Saturday. On day 43, Jane had already have her 3rd Environ Cool Peel Facials plus Environ LACM Home Peel Kit along with her regular skincare remedies.


Already, you can see her skin is starting to improve. Her skin look brighter and clearer after 40 days on Skin Accumax, Environ skincare and Jane Iredale make up.




This photo shows the right side of Jane's skin was slightly less angry.




Jane Hanna came in for her first Environ Cool Peel Facial on the 13th May 2017, Friday. Environ Cool Peel Facial is a safe and gentle procedure which removes the excess horny layer of the skin and yet protects the epidermis layer so there is no excessive redness or recovery time. The peeling system is based on usage of Lactic Acid which hydrates and repairs skin cells as well as encouraging skin cell exfoliation revealing fresh and youthful skin. This is especially effective in treating rosacea, acne, scarring, rough texture and photo-damage skin.


Usually, I would recommend client's to have a series of Environ Cool Peel Facial for the best results. In Jane' case, I recommended her to have a course of 6 Environ Cool Peel Facials. So, Jane decided to go ahead with the course of 6 Environ Cool Peel Facials, one per week starting Friday 13th May 2017 every Friday thereafter. Each Environ Cool Peel Facial generally lasts about 60 minutes to 90 minutes and there's no down time. After each peel, your skin might feel slightly warm and tight, however most of my clients experience no discomfort.



We are going to let Jane explain her 100 Day Journey continue from Day 30 - 28th May 2017 


I so look forward to have my first Environ Cool Peel Facial with Emi. She makes me feel very welcome and comfortable. Before she gave me Environ Cool Peel Facial, she explained the whole process of the facial and said that I might experience a warm, tingling sensation when she applied LACM 2 (Lactic Acid) onto my skin, however, she said that most clients experience no discomfort.


I have to say the facial was amazing! After plenty of cleansing, Emi applied a layer of LACM 2 masque on my skin. I did feel my skin a little warm but not tingly! After couple of minutes, she cleansed and massaged my face with neutralising cleanser. Then, a thick cold creamy mask was applied all over my face including my eye and mouth and the mask was attached to the micro-current machine for 15 minutes. Finally, the mask came off in one piece. I found the whole experience was very relaxing and I think I nodded off for couple of minutes during facial.



After the facial, Emi recommended that I start the following skincare remedies along with my regular skincare regime....


* Environ LACM Home Peel Kit - I applied a layer of LACM 1 with the brush provided in the Kit and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes, then I washed with Environ Sebuwash and applied Environ Colustrum Gel and Environ Face & Body Oil after every night.


* Environ RAD SPF 15 - I applied every morning after I cleansed and moisturised my face and neck area. Then, I finished with Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener and Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base Golden Glow. I have to say I am very impressed with Jane Iredale make up range. It's so good and it stays on my skin all day.



So far, I am happy with Emi's advice and the treatment I received. I found Emi really spent time with me getting to know me and she really wanted the best result for me and my skin. I am really hoping my skin will be clearer soon.

Enjoy Your Summer the Hay-Band Way!

Pin It


What is Hay-Band?

Hay-Band operates by exerting pressure on the acupressure point on either carm called the L1-11 (QuiChi) point.  Acupressure is believed to increase the flow of natural energy through the stimulation of various pressure points which promote well-being.

You can use it as a preventative measure or once the hay fever & allergic rhiitis symptoms have started.




How to use Hay-Band?

To locate the point, face your palm down and bend your arm towards you. The point is located at the end of the crease at the elbow. If more than one crease appears, the most prominent should be used.


Then slide the Hay-Band up your arm and position the stud facing inwards over the pressure point with the bands passing either side of the elbow.


You can wear the Hay-Band on either arm. Id you want additional relief, you can wear the Hay-Band on each arm.


It might take 5 minutes to take effect. If you feel there's no improvement in your condition, try adjust the position of the stud. The effect may be improved by applying finger pressure to the stud for 5 seconds periods.


Hay-Band should not be worn during pregnancy and suitanle for adults and children over the age of 3.

How UV Rays Damage Skin?

Pin It


Harmful effects of UV rays can

* Destroys Langerhans cells which participate in the immune response against cancer

* Generates free radicals which damage skin cell's DNA

* Contributes to the breakdown of collagen and elastin

* Damages melanocyte cells


How can we protect our skin from UV rays?

Look for 3 essential sunscreen elements:

1.  Antioxidants -  Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Complete

Antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Beta-Carotene help minimise UV Ray damage that penetrates sunscreen filters.

We recommend taking a daily dose of a Vitamin A and antioxidant supplement e.g. Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Complete.

Studies have shown that even on a cloudy days, 80% of radiation from UVA rays break through. ( )

Antioxidants mop up free radicals generated in the skin from UV exposure which will minimise the damaging effects on the DNA cells.

Taking Vitamin A and antioxidant supplement will repair and protect your skin from the inside out.


2.  Chemical sunscreen - Environ RAD SPF 15

Chemical sunscreens absorb the radiation from UV rays, neutralising their damaging effects.

Reseach has shown that high SPF can be harmful when left on the skin*.

Chemical sunscreens are only effective for 2 to 3 hours after application. You need to apply and reapply regularly . The reason being chemical sunscreen absorb UV during those hours but once they stop working they turn into free radicals which react with DNA cells which can contribute to increase risk of ageing and also skin cancer.

Environ RAD SPF 15 is a safe and superior sun protection for all ages including babies over 6 months because its contains low chemical sunscreen and formulation with a combination of antioxidant vitamins and reflectants.




3.  Reflectants (Titanium Dioxide) - Environ RAD SPF 15/Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen

What's a reflectants? Reflectants reflect rays and scatter energy causing them to "bounce" off the skin. Environ RAD SPF 15 and some Jane Iredale products such as Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen contains Titanium Dioxide which has the effect of reflecting UV rays thereby protecting your skin.

CBD Oil (Hemp Oil)

What its CBD Oil?

CBD Oil is a food supplement and contains nutrients that are safely consumed by adults as part of your daily diet. CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol and each Celtic Wind CBD Multi-Complex 10ml contains 5% Hemp oil pure concentration.

Cannabinoids are naturally found in cannabis sativa plants.  In a cannabis plant, there are dozens of compounds. The main compounds in cannabis plants are Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

However, CBD oil  does not contain THC oil therefore it is not psychoactive which means it does not cause one to "get high" or "Stoned" feeling)


What's the benefit of CBD Oil?

Hemp seeds are rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3 and insoluble fiber. They are a good source of Vitamin E and antioxidants.

Recent research has shown that CBD Oil (Cannabidiol) is highly anti-oxidants to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties.

'The researchers suggest that the non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana, such as CBD, could be a new treatment for chronic pain.

CBD is already in use for some conditions that cause chronic pain, such as multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia.' *


How to take CBD OIl?

Take 1 full dropper a day sublingually which means administer the full dropper "beneath the tongue" so it can be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, bypass our digestive system which gives maximum rapid absorption.
