- Question: I have dehydrated skin, what's the best solution for me?
Dehydrated skin needs extra nourishment and the Aqualia Range provides intensive hydration for up to 48 hours. It’s enriched with Vichy Thermal Spa Water from the Vichy mountains in France
Our beauty editor Jess uses the serum and moisturiser together after suffering with dehydrated skin for years and loves this range. She tells us all the time how beautiful it smells, and she says it leaves her skin feeling refreshed despite being around air con and artificial heating all day!
- Question: I suffer from a midday shine, why does this happen and how do I stop it?
If you notice a shiny forehead or T-Zone when you’re at school or work, then it’s likely to be a result of your skin’s natural cleansing process. At about midnight, your skin starts to cleanse, ridding itself of excess residue and impurities but for oily skins, this process goes on for longer. This can result in the dreaded midday shine. So how do you stop it? The Vichy Normaderm Night Detox helps slow down the production of excess serum, so you don’t have to pat on any extra powder in the afternoon!
- Question: I'm getting older and want to try and hide my frown lines and crows feet but haven't yet found a product that works...help?!
Anti-aging needs new technology and professional ingredients. To treat lines, you need products that help plump the skin for a youthful look. Retinol is a wonder ingredient for Anti-aging and the Vichy LiftActiv Advanced Filler contains the highest level of pure Retinol in the consumer market (0.2%*). Because of the pharmaceutical background of this brand, you can guarantee that extensive research has gone in to it, as well as lots of different trials on a huge range of skin types. So before they launch anything, they make sure they know it works. Just be sure to top up that SPF every day when using Retinol products to prevent any sun damage.
