Beat pollution and protect your skin
Our stress levels are high and the world is full of environmental pollutants … and none of this is good for our health, and in particular, our skin. We’re loving Environ’s latest innovative products, which offer complete protection against the harmful effects of pollution: the Focus Care Comfort and Anti-Pollution Spritz and Masque. The spritz (R520) provides a lightweight, invisible breathable shield, which has a scientifically perfected blend of anti-pollution ingredients and high potency antioxidants to help counteract the harmful effects of pollution. The multi-functional charcoal masque (R515) is formulated with Japanese Charcoal and special botanicals to help absorb pollutant impurities, normalise and hydrate the skin and leave it feeling revitalised and smooth.

Beauty & nutrition
We have found what is by far our favourite beauty spoil this year and we’re sharing the secret – because we’re nice like that! FUTURELIFE® BEAUTI FOOD™ is packed with goodness and tastes amazing. With skin-enhancing benefits from the collagen this supplementary meal range is scientifically-formulated and available in delicious, on-the-go bar and shake formats. It’s low GI, contains no added sugar and is high in protein – so it’s ideal for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. The shakes are delicious (trust us, we tried them) and make for a convenient meal supplement (just mix with water and shake). The flavours are French Vanilla and Caramel Latte (so yum), and if consumed daily as directed, they will reduce the appearance of wrinkles! Whoop!
