Harmful skin influencers stress the epidermis with constant exposure to free radicals. Adopt an effective holistic strategy to help your skin recover its radiance.
#1 Glow from within
Excess alcohol dilates the blood vessels and can irreversibly mark the skin, so limit intake to one unit per day. Also avoid fatty, processed foods. Fish, egg-whites and nuts are recommended for boosting skin cell renewal. Orange vegetables, rich in carotene are known to brighten the complexion, while dark green vegetables are rich in skin-nourishing vitamins and antioxidants.
#2 Hydrate every day
Moisture plays a major role in helping your skin to recover its radiance, so ensure that you drink the Institute of Medicine’s recommended daily amount of water at 11 cups (2.7 liters) for women and 15 cups (3.7 liters) for men.
#3 Mineralize your skin
For continuous hydration, mist your face with Vichy Mineralizing Water. Extracted from its source in the Auvergne mountains, France, it is naturally rich in 15 minerals, which act synergistically to stimulate skin cell regeneration and repair. Its antioxidant properties enhance the effect of vitamin E in your skin cream.
#4 Recycle your chamomile tea
Not just a drink to boost hydration and internal cleansing, this tea is our ally in brightening the eye contour. Refrigerate two used chamomile tea bags, then place them on the eyelids for 5 minutes to reduce swelling and redness.
#5 Pamper yourself in your sleep
The skin renews itself naturally at night. For stronger, more even-toned and more radiant skin, opt for 8 hours sleep and a deeply hydrating and regenerating night cream. Vichy’s Ideal White Meta Whitening Essence is a perfect night care product with naturally medicinal properties to reveal the radiance of Asian women: antioxidant Vitamin E, phe-resorcinol, niacinamide, LHA Aquakeep, Aquabioryl and glycerin. This unique formula can be applied as a regular night cream or as a weekly mask.
