Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is one of my all time favorites it feels amazing on my skin. I apply it in the morning before my makeup and it goes on so light and absorbs right in.

Retinol Q&A with Dr. Ranella Hirsch

When it comes to fine lines and aging, dermatologists agree that Retinol is one of the most effective ingredients on the market. Here, Dr. Ranella Hirsch, noted Boston dermatologist, fills us in on Retinols.
Question: How long does it generally take to see results from a Retinol product?
Dr. Hirsch: Every person is different but typically we advise that patients give a minimum of 8-12 weeks before deciding if something is not working. Vitamin A derivatives, of which Retinol is an example, are designed to be long-term solutions. The longer you use it, the better, so the imperative is to stick with the regimen and give it a chance to work.

Question: As a dermatologist, what is the number one reason patients don’t stick with their Retinol regimen?
Dr. Hirsch: Irritation. Unlike many other creams used for the skin, e.g. moisturizers which are best “slathered on,” the skin is extremely capable of absorbing Vitamin A products and thus needs only a very little bit applied. A tendency to utilize too much is often what results in irritation. A little bit used over time yields the best outcomes.

Question: What are the benefits of using a Retinol product that also contains hyaluronic acid?
Dr. Hirsch: Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, or a product that attracts water to the skin. Its effects allow for rapid improvement (albeit shorter lasting) in the appearance of fine lines, especially around the eyes where skin is very thin. It is a great ingredient to seek out when you want to improve the appearance around the eye rapidly.

Vichy Laboratoires’ revolutionary LiftActiv Retinol HA total wrinkle care uniquely combines Retinol, capturing its well-established anti-wrinkle action with hyaluronic acid’s potent cell volumizing effects. This powerhouse delivers both long-term benefits to the appearance of fine lines and offers rapid improvement that clinical studies detail as smoother, more rejuvenated skin from day four of use.


New Study reveals Womens number one skincare issue.

I am a huge fan of Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care. I have serious combination skin  and the littlest change can cause a breakout. Whenever I am using Vichy Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care my skin is so much calmer and can take weather and stress changes without a breakout. The lotion is very lightweight and absorbs right away and leaves my skin hydrated and with a matte finish.

Vichy Laboratoires just released results from dual studies showing that acne is the number one skincare problem facing women. In one of the studies, 69 percent of women across all four major ethnicities reported clearer skin with less acne imperfections after using Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care twice a day for four weeks.

In a study of 300 women, the L’Oréal Institute for Ethnic Hair and Skin Research revealed that ACNE is the MOST COMMON PROBLEM, as well as the BIGGEST SKIN CONCERN cited amongst women from all four major ethnicities. The results of this study are further supported by additional research conducted by Vichy Laboratoires. According to a survey of 625 dermatologists at the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting 2010, the number one skin concern of dermatology patients is ACNE.

Over-the-counter products and home remedies are the top two most-used approaches to treat acne. But still, many women have a very low level of satisfaction from these treatments. Finally, Vichy offers a solution with Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care. In addition to visibly clearer skin, Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic and Asian women who used Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care showed substantial reduction on all acne-related parameters including: tightened pores, an immediate matte effect, a more even complexion and a reduction in skin redness.

Oil-free, lightweight and easily-absorbed,  is formulated with Zincadone+ and Eperulin, a new organic ingredient that soothes and regulates inflammation. Plus, Vichy’s patent-pending Intra-Pore Technology allows each ingredient to penetrate into the heart of the pore, to protect and purify the sebaceous glands, reducing imperfections and preventing future breakouts.
