Get mature skin glowing again with an age-fighting serum
When menopausal symptoms hit, it can seem like your skin goes south overnight. But the right skin care product can make all the difference and put your skin back on track.
A new way to soothe and smooth
We know that extremely dry skin can accompany the onset of menopause – in fact, skin loses 57 percent of its lipids and surface oil with these hormonal changes. The result? Excessively dry, dull, thin and fragile skin. “Post-menopausal skin is characterized by a major drop in all sebaceous [oil production] functions – both the number of active oil glands and the amount of sebum or oil excreted,” says Sarah Gora, Ph.D., Medical and Scientific Relations Leader of Vichy Canada. This loss of lipids leads to the deconstruction of the skin’s outer layers and increases water loss, resulting in dry, tight skin with reduced elasticity and resistance. To make up for the loss of lipids and nourish skin, incorporate a new skincare weapon like Vichy’s oil-based, Neovadiol Magistral Elixir.
Our serum’s secret ingredients: omega fatty acids
You may have heard about the importance of incorporating healthy omega fatty acids into your diet, like coconut oil, salmon and avocado. These foods are not only delicious but can help calm inflammation and ward off disease. In addition, omega oils are proven to be extremely beneficial for skin health. When you apply the Vichy Neovadiol Magistral Elixir on mature, menopausal skin, its three key ingredients (omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids) get to work reconstructing all layers of the skin as well as providing intense nutrition. Skin is denser, smoother and more luminous. “Its blend of shea butter, rice bran oil and safflower seed oil [three active ingredients selected for their perfect affinity with the skin] guarantee an immediate effect on the protection of the skin’s barrier,” adds Dr. Sarah Gora. After applying the serum, you’ll notice immediate results: in as little as one hour, skin is fortified and more radiant.
Start an elixir ritual
Beautiful skin at any age is easy with our age-fighting elixir, specially formulated for mature skin. “We were able to formulate an oil with a dry, non-greasy finish by using a balance between active natural and modified oils,” says Dr. Sarah Gora. “The advantages are better fluidity, easier application and quicker absorption.” This multi-purpose wonder oil can be used in the following ways:
- 1. As a serum: Apply twice a day, before your regular day or night moisturizer.
- 2. As a balm: Mix a drop or two in the palm of your hand and combine with your usual moisturizer.
- 3. As a mask: For more intense nourishment, apply 8-10 drops to skin, leave for 10 minutes, then wipe away excess.
