Expert Tips for Winter Skin Care

December 23, 2015

It’s the time of year when eyelashes freeze, toes are perpetually numb and you don’t even know what it felt like to once effortlessly slip on some flip flops and hit the town.

We know we’re in for it.

Months of bundling up, layers upon layers of sweaters and fleece-lined everything to keep our bodies un-frozen and protected from bitter winter winds and plunging temperatures.


We spend so much time layering up our bodies – we often forget about taking care of our skin.

Enter VICHY’s latest Aqualia Thermal ExtraSensitive.


The latest addition to the VICHY Thermal line, now a three-step range designed to give ‘intense hydrations and immediate relief’ for your skin. A thermal water toner followed by a super hydrating eye then face moisturizer.


In speaking with Anik Kerr-Denis, VICHY’s communication and scientific relations leader, she explained how 67% of Canadian women say they have sensitive skin – something that is caused by external factors like wind, heaters, and harsh products.

Everyone can have skin sensitivity and it can be amplified when the weather cools down. To combat this, implementing a twice-daily regime of soothing and regenerating products that contain vitamin B3 which is known for combatting redness and inflammation as well as shea butter, which is extremely moisturizing and soothing for all types of skin, is needed.

The new VICHY Aqualia Thermal ExtraSensitive is packed with vitamin B3, shea butter as well as hyaluronic acid for plumping… And who doesn’t love that?!

What I also love is the pump. So long uninvited mystery fuzz that somehow weasels it’s way in to my moisturizers.

Having a pump is hygienic and delivers the perfect amount of fuzz-free product every time.


If you’re not sure this line of products is right for your skin type, in Shoppers Drug Mart stores across-Canada now, VICHY is offering their free skin diagnostic system which evaluates the hydration levels of your skin. If you can’t make it to a store, is now a full e-commerce site.

Protect that money maker against this season’s elements. Slather on the good stuff to keep that beautiful face of yours protected.
