Your daily dose of anti-wrinkle actives, delivered.
The average workday is 8 hours, then add to that average school day and parenting day and try to fit it all into a 24-hour time frame. It's a lot, right?
While we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to be spending some extra time at home with our families during the coronavirus pandemic, balancing work, kids, your relationship and your sanity through a global crisis could be doing one of two things to your skin.
Some might find that their skin is flourishing during this time thanks to an extended break from wearing makeup and not having to go outside. Others could be dealing with breakouts caused by diet, blue-light-induced dryness and overall dullness from lack of sunlight.
Is there such thing as a quick fix for WFH face? Maybe! Vichy's latest launch seems to be one such wonder-product!
Vichy's LiftActiv Peptide-C Ampoules
Employing a delivery system co-opted from Korean beauty, Vichy's LiftActiv Peptide-C Ampoules pack a serious punch when it comes to slowing the onset of fine lines and wrinkles and keeping skin looking youthful, while simultaneously protecting against further damage.
With each vial boasting 10% of pure vitamin C, plant-based Phyto peptides, and hyaluronic acid, the concentrated serum delivers a much higher potency of skin-nourishing ingredients to target collagen loss and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Adding the LiftActiv Peptide-C Ampoules to your skincare routine will guarantee smoother skin, while simultaneously working to strengthen skin’s natural defences against early alterations in the skin’s barrier.
So powerful are these cocktails of actives and peptides, that you really only need to use one ampoule per day – half in the morning and the rest at night. A specialist applicator attachment makes for foolproof portion-control and storage too. Just pop the applicator cap back and the formula will stay fresh for 48 hours.
What Are The Benefits of Ampoules?
When dealing with potent skincare ingredients, individually-packaged ampoules are a great way to regulate usage and make sure people are not tending to overestimate how much they need to apply. After all, the skin can only absorb a certain amount of nutrients at a time, so more isn't always better.
The airtight ampoule can also work to prevent the skincare actives against UV rays, heat and oxidation for longer, meaning the formula can be created without preservatives or stabilisers.
How To Use The LiftActiv Peptide-C Ampoules:
Again, as is the case with all potent skincare, light sensitivity can be increased due to cell-turnover, so the use of SPF is always advised during the day. We're big fans of Vichy’s Liftactiv Collagen Specialist SPF 25 Fluid, €35.
Step By Step Guide
- Using a tissue, snap the lid off the glass ampoule and attach the specialist applicator.
- Then twist off the applicator cap and squeeze the applicator to release half of the contents of the ampoule, before applying to clean, dry skin.
- Wait 30 seconds before applying your normal skincare routine.
- Don't forget your SPF during the daytime.
