Vichy summer skin and sun care

Are you ready to treat your skin during the summer months? Skin can get easily sun-damaged and dried out in the heat, and our friends at Vichy Canada have several suncare/after-suncare products in their latest collection. We checked out three essentials for home and out in the sun. BTW, Vichy currently has a site-wide 20% discount as part of their big summer promotion.

Liftactiv Collagen Specialist Peptide-C SPF 30

Liftactiv Collagen Specialist Peptide-C SPF 30

Liftactiv Collagen Specialist Peptide-C SPF 30 is a soothing moisturizer containing UVA/UVB SPF 30 broad spectrum sun protection in a slender, easily portable tube. It’s got a light floral fragrance, is Paraben-free and has been successfully tested for all skin types.

Peptides are short fragments of proteins naturally derived from green peas that help visibly firm skin’s appearance. And Vitamin C, an antioxidant, helps brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of aging, providing smoothed wrinkles, defined contours and even skin tones as major benefits of its use. 50 ml, CAD $49.56

Aqualia Thermal Fragrance-Free Cream

Aqualia Thermal Fragrance-Free Cream

Vichy’s new Aqualia Thermal 48-hour hydration cream promises long-lasting nourishment for the skin. It’s made using Vichy volcanic water, which according to Vichy, has been clinically proven to protect the skin from UV rays and pollution as well as the ability to strengthen the skin’s barrier.

All products in the Aqualia Thermal line contain 97% natural-origin ingredients with no added silicone, mineral oil or paraben. 50 ml, CAD $32.76

Vichy summer skincare-5

Idéal Soleil After Sun SOS Balm

When skin is exposed to the sun, UV rays penetrate its layers and break down the cutaneous (pigmentation) cells’ protective cover. As a result, cells progressively lose their vital substance.

This SOS balm goes on nice and thick yet not greasy, and contains soothing and fortifying Vichy Thermal Spa Water. I noticed that my skin felt relief after a strong sunny afternoon. Vichy also promises that your skin’s redness will fade away.

Idéal Soleil After Sun SOS Balm

I will surely get use out of this product again this summer, even though I limit my exposure to the sun, especially when local UV reports are high. 100 ml; CAD $22.35

I favour Vichy products as they won’t block your skin’s pores and are hypoallergenic. The skin is forever changing and having quality skincare products to help minimize the appearance of aging, while offering sun protection, is the reason I return to this brand time and time again.
