Building your routine with Vichy Normaderm and Vichy Homme

Vichy have been producing pharmacy standard, naturally inspired skincare and grooming products for nearly a century. Their products combine their years of experience, a rigorous testing process, and coveted Vichy Thermal Spa Water, a naturally mineral-rich water sourced in Volcanic springs near the city of Vichy in France. For this reason, they are responsible for designing and producing skincare and grooming products of an exceptionally high standard. In this article, we want to introduce you to two of their ranges, Vichy Normaderm, and Vichy Homme.

Vichy Normaderm

The Vichy Normaderm range is specially designed to target adult imperfections such as blemishes, pores, oily skin, and uneven complexion. The range includes problem-specific products such as the Hyaluspot Treatment, a hypoallergenic, non comedogenic blemish correcter, formulated with salicylic acid alongside hyaluronic acid to treat breakouts while protecting and firming the skin. It also includes face washes, cleansers, and moisturisers ideal for daily use which can become the heart of your routine.

Vichy Homme

Vichy Homme is the men’s range from Vichy. Bringing their years of skincare expertise to the world of male grooming, Vichy Homme products cater to male-specific skincare and grooming needs. From shaving cream and beard care, to body care and antiperspirant, with their range of products, you’ll have all your bases covered.

Building your Vichy Routine

Step 1. Pick your cleansing products

From the Normaderm range, Vichy’s Cleansing Gel is a sensitive, hypoallergenic cleanser formulated with salicylic acid, totarol, eperuline and glycolic acid. This can be used alongside the Normaderm Purifying Astringent Lotion Toner for a thorough, two-step clean.

Alternatively, the 3-in-1 Scrub, Cleanser, and Mask is an extremely effective multipurpose product. This will save you time, will imparting a multitude of skincare benefits.

Step 2. Pick your moisturiser

Moisturisers replenish the nutrients and hydration which can be stripped from your skin both through exposure to environmental aggressors, and from the process of cleansing. For this reason it’s vital you pick a moisturiser that’s suited to your skin. The Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection, Anti-Ageing Care Moisturiser uses glycolic acid and Lipo-hydroxy acids to replenish moisture while targeting blemishes.

Step 3. Take care of your shave

Shaving can be a source of great irritation to your skin, as well as the cause of breakouts and long term damage. Making sure you use the right shaving foam and post-shave treatment will ensure you’re totally protected.

For those who don’t shave: try the Vichy Homme Idealizer 3-Day Beard Care to keep your beard healthy, moisturised and comfortable, and that the skin underneath is protected as well.

Step 4.  Now for the body…

The final step in building your Vichy routine is to get the right body care for you. We suggest trying the Hyda Mag-C Shower Gel, which thoroughly moisturises while cleansing. They also have a range of deodorants and antiperspirants to combat body odours and ensure you feel and smell your best, too.
