How to hydrate and restore a damaged skin barrier

Strengthen Your Skin’s Natural Barrier With Minéral 89  How to protect skin from everyday aggressors and keep moisture locked in Our skin is constantly under attack from external and internal factors. External factors like the weather, sun exposure and pollutants and internal factors like stress, ageing and the menopause, can leave skin feeling and looking damaged. It’s so important you give your skin the care it deserves. So, what’s the best way to strengthen your skin’s barrier and keep it hydrated?

How to hydrate and restore damaged skin’s natural barrier

When skin becomes damaged from environmental pollutants or through sun exposure, its natural barrier can wear thin, leaving the epidermis vulnerable to attack from bacteria. If left untreated your skin can become more sensitive, prone to dryness and develop redness.

If you’re someone whose skin is suffering from any of these symptoms, start off your day with Vichy’s Minéral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Booster. Apply every morning to freshly cleansed, dry skin to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day and to protect it from damaging aggressors like the weather and pollution.

To give you skin a boost at night apply Vichy’s Minéral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Hydration Booster before you go to bed and wake in the morning with skin that looks plumped and fortified .

Protecting your face’s skin natural barrier from damage

Throughout the day your face comes into contact with different environmental factors that can damage the skin. Things like air-conditioning, smoke and even make-up can leave your skin feeling sensitive and dry. And, as we age the sebaceous gland activity diminishes - resulting in skin drying out, and both the epidermis and dermis thin - leaving a weakened barrier against aggressors and irritants.

On the face, this damage can present itself as skin losing its brightness, bags and dark circles forming under the eyes and more wrinkles appearing.

The Vichy skincare routine your face needs...

To bring strength and hydration back to the skin on your face, start by cleansing your face with Minéral 89 Fortifying Recovery Mask. Apply the mask to cleansed, dry skin, leave for 10 minutes ensuring you massage an excess product into the skin. When the time is up remove the mask by gently peeling it off. The masks formula enriched with  89% Vichy Mineralizing Water and natural origin Hyaluronic Acid works to revitalise and plump your skin with moisture, lasting up to 24 hours.

Next, apply Minéral 89 Eyes Hyaluronic Acid Eye Fortifier to reduce the appearance of fine lines and eye bags.
