Phase two of the #100dayreset challenge
My journey on how to get rid of acne
In my previous post ‘Day 30 of the #100dayreset challenge’ I discussed my skins progress so far and how I’ve got on with the products I’ve been using for the past 30 days to help improve the condition of my skin, especially the hormonal breakouts of acne I get on my jawline and chin. Now I’m on phase two and the iiaa have sent me a new batch of complimentary products to use for the next 30-60 days which will then be followed up with another state of the art Environ facial at Harvey Nichols.
So, this post is just a brief overview of the new products I will be using for the next 30 days. To see the products, I used on the first phase of this challenge see my post ‘iiaa #100dayreset’.
The iiaa have three amazing brands, the Advanced Nutrition programme to FEED the skin, Environ skincare to FORTIFY and Jane Iredale skincare makeup to FINISH the skin. The iiaa use a scientific approach to creating effective skincare products to achieve long-term beauty benefits.
Environ B-active sebuwash
In the first phase of the #100dayreset challenge I used an Environ vitamin A moisturiser twice a day and now I’ll be using the Environ B-Active sebuwash morning and night to remove all traces of makeup and dirt from my skin before following up with a toner and moisturiser.
The Environ B-active Sebuwash has been created especially for those with oily, congested and blemish prone skin. It contains tea tree oil and salicylic acid which work together as a mild exfoliant to help clear up problematic skin and absorbing excess oil without drying out the face. It’s also free from fragrance and preservatives.
I’m already a couple of days into phase two, so I’ve used this a few times already, it has a gel consistency and is low-foaming. After a pre-cleanse, I apply a few drops of the gel on my fingers and apply it to my damp skin in a circular motion paying attention to the areas of my face I’m most concerned about. I massage it into the skin for a minute and then rinse and pat dry with a clean towel.
Environ products are exclusive and cannot be bought online, a skin consultation must be done by an Environ Skin care professional who will then recommend the most suitable product range for your skin type. Environ is available in Harvey Nichols and from many other skincare specialists, see your nearest stockist .
For the next 30 days, I will be taking two Skin Accumax capsules twice a day, with a meal. They have been created by the Advanced Nutrition Programme and contain a special combination of vitamin A, C and E as well as an active phyto-nutrient component to help encourage healthy skin, hair and nails from within. The supplements do not contain chemicals and won’t give you any side effects.
Skin problems are usually caused by an internal imbalance so the Skin Accumax capsules work from the inside out to improve the skins appearance. By using the face wash to treat the skin on the outside and taking the supplements to treat the skin from the inside means together they should be far more effective at making a visible difference to not only the face but also the back, shoulders and chest – where I’m also prone to breakouts.
I’m currently on my third day of taking Skin Accumax capsules and I’m feeling positive as I’ve seen some impressive before and after photos .
