Does your skin suffer when you are stressed?!
I’d like to think that I handle stress well, meaning that I don’t typically ‘feel’ stressed out or overwhelmed easily but the truth is, whether I feel it emotionally or not, my body will react to stress physically all by itself, and well, often, my skin takes the first hit!
When I’m juggling between two full time jobs, inundated with multiple deadlines, hit with a busy travel schedule, and piles of laundry are awaiting, the first telling sign that my stress level is rising is the increase in acne and dull, aging looking skin.
Sure, the simple way to correct the problem is to take a trip to the spa or setting some time to relax, but let’s be honest, taking that extra time off just means more work will await and the stress cycle just never seem to end!
I needed an effective yet time conserving skincare solution to battle the production of free radical, accelerated inflammation and elevated cortisol levels that are all induced by stress and causes aging and acne. And Guess what, I think I found the unicorn.
I welcome you to meet Vichy’s LiftActiv Vitamin C Brightening Corrector.
I was invited by Vichy Canada to join a few other super duper Canadian women on a 10 Day Cure Challenge. With just an application of 4 to 5 drops for 10 consecutive mornings, 3 to 4 times a year, the powerful formula containing 15% Pure Vitamin C and 10 additional ingredients which acts as a shield against oxidative stress and reduces the negative effects of your skin from change of seasons, lack of sleep, pollution, and nutritional imbalance. Ultimately, resulting in brighter, firmer, and smoother skin.
What I loved most about this new product is its high-performing texture. On Day 1 of my challenge, I applied the Corrector after cleansing my face, and it immediately absorbed into my skin, and left my skin with zero residue or any type of grease or gloss. Though I don’t think that the Corrector is supposed to combat oily skin, but I did notice that my T-zone was less oily during the 10 Day Challenge. A bonus I guess!
After about three days, I began to experience improvement. The first noticeable sign was firmness. Hard to show in a photo, but my skin felt ‘plumpy’ and lifted which obviously contributes to appearing fresh and well rested (but little did they know!).
About half way through, I experienced brighter skin. Hooray!
For day time, try this series:
- LiftActiv Vitamin C Brightening Corrector
- LiftActiv UV
- LiftActiv Eyes Serum
- LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme
And at Night:
Why 10 Days you ask? Vitamin C, though powerful, is also delicate. If exposed to oxygen, water, or heat, the efficacy degrades and it is said that the properties will only remain intact for 10 days. So ladies, despite your busy schedule, you too, can bring some zen back in your life with just a few extra minutes for 10 days!
What are you waiting for?
The Vichy LiftActiv Vitamin C Brightening Corrector (10 mL) retails for $45 on Vichy.ca and pharmacies across Canada.
