Is there such thing as an Ideal Skin?

new Vichy Idealia Review

Probably not, but it's what society and beauty brands want us to believe. We all have flaws and imperfections no matter how much we want to conceal or get rid of them. It's inevitable. We're only humans with pores and random pigmentation that allows our skin to ''breath'' and protect itself. It's not a coincidence that I'm addressing two main ''skin issues'' of modern society: enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation. It's something we shouldn't have yet most of us have at least one. But don't get yourself down by my words, I still believe you can slightly minimize imperfections on all areas.

It's renewed Vichy Idealia that gives me glimpse of hope. Vichy Idealia targets uneven skintone, micro wrinkles, skin glow and skin texture. What really sets apart this new line from old Vichy Idealia, is newly added ingredients such as bluberry polyphenol and fermented black tea. The packaging matches the ingredients perfectly, right? Testing it for almost 2 months, I'm intrigued by their new addition Vichy Idealia Peeling (100ml for 25€, pharmacy). It's the heart of collection, as it truly restores radiance and perfects skin texture with fruit acids (AHAs). I love what AHA as chemical exfoliator does to my dry skin with hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores around my nose area. Many of my relatives even noticed and pointed out a difference on skin - it finally glows! It's safe to say that my dry, flaky areas are gone and texture looks even. I'm really happy to finally see an affordable AHA emulsion on our pharmacy shelves. Vichy Idealia Energizing Day Cream (50ml for 28,60€, pharmacy) helps to top off initial overnight glow. It's light and balmy, while adding extra layer of healthy looking skin. Which makes it perfect as a makeup base. A mild version of 3% kombucha and AHAs is also lightly scented (similar to L'Occitane Pivoine line).

SLO
Obstaja popolna koža? Verjetno ne, vendar smo vsi na lovu za izdelki, ki bi to omogočili. Družba in potrošništvo nam narekujejo ideale, ki jih enostavno ne moremo izpolniti. Pore, ki skrbijo za izmenjavo in izločanje snovi, ter neenakomerna pigmentacija, ki nas želi ščititi, niso tako zaželjene zaradi videza. Je nekaj, kar ne smemo imeti, a vsak ima vsaj eno od dveh. Vendar naj vas moje besede ne potrejo, še vedno lahko vsaj za delček izboljšamo majhne nepravilnosti, ki so še kako uporabne za našo kožo.

Upanje mi daje prenovljena Vichy Idealia linija, ki cilja na sijočo polt, manj nepravilnosti, lepšo teksturo kože in zmanjša videz mikro gubic. Novo linijo loči od starejše Vichy Idealia le nekaj dodatnih sestavin, kot so polifenoli borovnic in fermentiran črni čaj za antioksidativen učinek. Tudi embalaža je spremenjena po samem navdihu temnih sestavin. Lepo, kajne? Čeprav je Vichy dokaj estetska in odišavljena znamka, ki ni najbolj orientirana v naravne sestavine (in vas to ne moti), se pri njej najde ogromno dobrih izdelkov. Občudujem nov dodatek liniji, Vichy Idealia Piling (100ml za 25€, v lekarnah) ki je poln sadnih kislin (AHA) za nežen tekoči piling pred nanosom nočne nege. Končno je tudi v Sloveniji cenovno ugoden kemičen piling, katere smo morale naročati preko spleta (khm Pixi Glow). Moja suha koža z hiperpigmentacijo ima izboljšano teksturo, suhi predeli pa so bolj gladki. Prav tako je po skoraj 2 mesecih opazilo moj nov sijaj kar nekaj bližnjih oseb. Po nočnem pilingu, zjutraj uporabim Vichy Idealia dnevno kremo (50ml za 28,60€, v lekarnah) ki je odlična baza za ličila. Krema je skoraj žametna in lahkotna, kožo optično olepša. Prav tako ima 3% kombuče in majhen delež AHA za vzdrževanje sijaja.
