Do you wake up with oily skin? And that makes you scared to use a night cream? I hear ya. I used to have oily skin, but it’s become dehydrated over the years. It’s not really and truly dry skin, because my nose is still oily when I wake up in the morning. So, I’m careful to not apply my night treatments on my nose, because all that does is make my already huge nose pores get clogged and BIGGER. No thank you!
Vichy has come out with a product to help decrease excess oil production at night, Vichy Normaderm Night Detox($29.95).
Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Sciencey Time!
Your face produces sebum. Yup. You knew that. That sebum production peaks twice: around midday, which is why we get shiny around lunch time, and around midnight. Vichy Normaderm Night Detox targets the midnight sebum production so that you wake up with FRESH, CLEAN feeling skin rather than dull, greasy skin. It also keeps on working to help lessen that midday oil spill as well. 🙂
Vichy Normaderm Night Detox contains:
Eperuline– an extract from the bark of a tree that has anti-inflammation properties
LHA– β-lipohydroxy acid, kind of works like Salicylic acid.It decreases the concentration of bacteria found within the pore and is effective exfoliant.
Hepes-Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid- this is a buffering agent, which helsp to reduce irritation
Salicylic Acid– exfoliates skin and can improve its texture and color. It also helps with acne.
Perlite– a porous volcanic rock that absorbs humidity. Perlite provides a mattifying action to reduce skin shininess.
So what will Vichy Normaderm Night Detox do for you? Well, first of all you won’t be overproducing sebum. You’ll start to notice that you’ll be less oily as the day progresses. In the morning, you’ll wake up with clean feeling skin, brighter looking skin. Over time imperfections will lessen, and pores will become less visible.
Now, I can’t use Vichy Normaderm Night Detox all over my face. BUT I do use in on my nose! It takes a bit of time to absorb, but once it does it makes skin feel kind of refreshed. It’s neat. But the best part is that I don’t wake up with grease nose anymore, and my large pores are looking better all the time. And cleaner! I think Vichy Normaderm Night Detox would be worth a try if you suffer with oily skin for sure. You can find it wherever Vichy products are sold across Canada.
