SkinStore Advent Calendar Day 22: Vichy

Did you know that in some parts of France, Christmas comes early when Santa, le Père Noël, brings small gifts and sweets for children on December 6th, the feast day of Saint-Nicolas? And that in other parts of the country, children place their shoes by the fire and wake up on Christmas Day to find them filled with presents from Santa, and fruit, nuts and small toys hanging on the tree?

Today we’re musing over French traditions and French girl beauty since our advent calendar offier is a FREE Vichy Liftactive Retinol HA Night worth $44.90 when you spend $25 or more on Vichy products!

When a brand’s underlying philosophy reads as “health is beautiful”, you can be sure to trust your complexion with it.

In 1931 French doctor Prosper Haller discovered the therapeutic virtues of thermal water from the hot springs found in Vichy, France. Haller infused cosmetic formulations with this very water to help you rediscover your skin’s most youthful and healthy capacity – what the good people at Vichy like to call “your ideal skin”.

If you’re unsure where to start, try he Neovadol range, which was specially created to counteract the effects of menopause on mature skin, promoting a healthy, youthful glow with continued use.

Not so Secret Ingredient

The Vichy skincare line is truly unique because it contains an ingredient that no other beauty brand can boast – Vichy Thermal water.

This mineral-rich thermal water from France has therapeutic properties capable of working magic when applied to the skin, and it’s at the heart of every Vichy product. The water is combined with active ingredients in order to create formulations that produce real and lasting results.

For centuries, the Vichy region of France has been celebrated for its thermal springs. French royalty and the European elite flocked to Vichy to experience the therapeutic benefits of the thermal springs. The warm water calmed redness and irritation, and left skin soft, smooth, and radiant. Modern science has confirmed the water’s restorative properties. Today, the Vichy thermal water is collected at its source and then delivered to a nearby production facility to be added to all the Vichy products. The water’s purity is preserved throughout this process. Try the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum to experience the incredible results for yourself.

Countdown to Christmas with our virtual advent calendar. Check back everyday for an exciting surprise!
