Vichy Normaderm Hydrating Acne Care - 50ml - $29.95 - this light and fresh lotion combines salicylic acid - to unblock the pores, glycolic acid - to exfoliate, stimulate and regenerate as well as for its anti-bacterial properties and LHA - to exfoliate, stimulate and regenerate as well as purify and erase the signs of acne - to act on the 6 signs of acne-prone skin: pimples, breakouts, redness, dilated pores, shine and dehydration while providing 24 hr hydration.
As well, it's enriched with moisturizing glycerine and mattifying silica to leave a dry, powdery finish on the skin, and is an excellent make-up base.
Of course it would be better not to break out at all but you might be genetically predisposed to, in which case you're screwed. Of course there are also hormonal (taking and stopping the pill, pregnancy, menopause and the menstrual cycle) environmental (smoking and pore clogging makeup)and psychological factors (stress) which cause imperfections to occur and persist. Which means making a lifestyle change can sometimes have some side benefits!
Suitable for even sensitive skin, it's oil-free, hypoallergenic, non comedogenic and paraben-free.
