But, while we can’t wave a magic wand and add a few extra hours to your day for pampering, we can help you create a fool-proof skincare regime that will get great results with very little effort. Here’s a few simple tips and tweaks that will help you look absolutely gorgeous even when you’re super busy.
TIP 1: Bring back your glow with Vitamin C
Vitamin C has long been hailed as the ultimate glow booster and it’s a great way to give your skin a helping hand during times of stress and busyness. This is because it’s a powerful antioxidant that is not only great at tackling signs of ageing in the skin, but it can also help to protect it from age-accelerating aggressors in the environment such as UV, cigarette smoke and pollution. When used every day (either as a serum, moisturiser or cleanser), your complexion should start to look brighter and smoother – and photo damage reduced.
The product: Vichy’s Liftactiv Vitamin C Brightening Corrector is a 10-day treatment that’s designed as an antidote to dull, tired skin. A concentrated antioxidant formula combines 15% pure Vitamin C, with Vitamin E and fragmented Hyaluronic Acid to help restore a healthy glow to your complexion.
TIP 2: Boost hydration levels with collagen
When you lose sleep, your skin can start to feel dry, more sensitive and ageing signs appear more prominent. This is because the skin hasn’t had its required recovery period to repair and renew itself – most of which happens as we sleep. If this sounds familiar, your skin will probably benefit from skincare rich in collagen-boosting ingredients such as biopeptides. These important amino acids help to create proteins such as keratin and collagen that give the skin its strength and plumpness.
The product: Vichy’s Liftactiv Specialist Collagen Day Cream helps to target the visible signs of collagen loss while improving the appearance of skin’s texture with a formula enriched in Vitamin C andbiopeptides. you should start to notice an improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin tone.
TIP 3: Protect your skin from environmental damage
Busy mornings don’t afford much time for complicated skincare routines but if you remember one thing, make sure it’s a product that protects the skin against pollution and UV. These two major aggressors are present in our environment all year round and over time, can do damage to the deep and top layers of the dermis. This causes photo damage, premature signs of ageing and on a more reactive level, dullness and dryness. Once protected, you’ll notice that your skin appears healthier, more radiant and hydrated.
The product: Minéral 89 is a daily strengthening serum designed as the first step in your skincare routine. It helps to hydrate the skin with Vichy’s highest ever concentration of Mineralizing Water and Hyaluronic Acid, while helping to protect the skin from aggressors in the environment as well as lifestyle-related factors including stress and fatigue.
