They say breaking up is hard to do, we say breaking out is even worse. It’s why we’re washing our face with Vichy’s Normaderm Anti-Acne Purifying Cleansing Gel every single night before we go to bed. Some mornings, too, if we’ve had a particularly hot, humid and sweaty sleep and need the extra bacteria zapping support.
Fuelled with naturally sourced salicylic acid, zinc and copper, this gel-based cleanser eliminates bacteria, dirt, sweat, gunk and redness from our face, while simultaneously healing any existing pimples we may have. It’s infusion of probiotic extract and Vichy’s renowned mineralizing water also work to strengthen our skin’s barrier and reinforce its natural defense mechanisms against, well, everything that can be pimple promoting from the environment and stress to cell phone usage and face touching. Let’s face it (pun intended), the summer’s hot weather doesn’t help either. So while we love it, it’s also causing tiny little bumps to pop up all over our cheeks, making us fantasize about an acne break-up moment.
And we’re getting it. The gel’s deep clean also removes the hundreds of dead skin cells our face loses every single day, along with the excess sebum that can trap said cells and clog our pores, resulting in unwanted bumps and spots. So when you think about it, the purifying cleanser is actually a skin hero, because it is making breaking up with our acne super easy to do.
