How Vichy Skincare Saved My Dry Winter Skin in Preparation for Spring

Vichy

Vichy’s scientific skincare expert Dr. Sarah Gora made some personalized skincare recommendations to help me deal with my dry and dehydrated skin. I must say she was bang on in her recommendations because my skin has made a rather dramatic turnaround. The dryness and tightness is gone as well as any flakiness and most of the redness. The recommended products were:

Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water ($9.50 US for travel size shown) – I spray this on my skin after cleansing prior to applying my skincare. The Vichy Thermal Spa Water contains a unique combination of 15 rare minerals and it feels so cool and refreshing. I am really loving this added step in my routine.

Purete Thermale Soothing Cleansing Milk for Dry Sensitive Skin ($18 US) – I use this cream cleanser after removing makeup with my cleansing oil. It is enriched with antioxidant Vitamin E and hydrating glycerin and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft.

Aqualia Thermal Daily Care Rich Cream ($31 US) – I use this cream often in the mornings to leave my skin plump, hydrated and ready for makeup.

LiftActiv Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Care for Dry to Very Dry Skin ($50 US) – This rich cream contains 6% shea butter and 5% Rhamnose which is a naturally derived plant sugar proven to help boost skin rejuvenation. I’ve been loving adding a dropper full of Vichy Neovadiol Elixir facial oil into the LiftActiv cream for an intensely hydrating overnight facial a couple times a week.

Since I am prone to clogged pores on my nose I would skip the richer moisturizers in this area some evenings and apply Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot to keep that area clear.

Now that my skin feels hydrated, plump, and healthy I am going to finally delve into the Vichy line testing out the Vichy LiftActive Advanced Concentrate Daily Wrinkle Corrector and the Vichy Idealia Life Serum and treat my skin to some night treatments with the Vichy ProEVEN Night Overnight Concentrate.
