How to Use Vichy Normaderm

by Maggie Hira

Normaderm is a line of skincare products from Vichy Laboratories. The line of products includes facial cleansers, exfoliating scrubs, medicated gels and moisturizers. The products are formulated specifically for acne-prone skin with potent anti-acne medication, like salicylic acid to remove blackheads, tighten pores and minimize blemishes. With regular use, acne is reduced and pores are visibly smaller and less noticeable.

Step 1

Wash your face every morning with the Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel. It contains salicylic acid, witch hazel extract and glycolic acid to clean out clogged pores and excess oil from the skin's surface.

Step 2

Massage the Vichy Normaderm Daily Exfoliating Cleansing Gel onto slightly damp skin to smooth out rough skin and remove blackheads. Rinse off with warm water. This product is best for people who suffer from blackheads, whiteheads and facial milia. The exfoliating micro-particles slough off dead skin cells that become trapped inside the pores and help reveal a smoother complexion.

Step 3

Use the Normaderm Anti-Blemish Intensive Treatment Cream to treat inflamed and prominent acne lesions. This cream contains 2 percent alicylic acid to combat red, pus-filled pimples by absorbing deep into pores to destroy acne-causing bacteria.

Step 4

Apply the Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care to hydrate skin and prevent it from overdrying. The daily use of products containing salicylic acid and witch hazel can dry out skin, leaving it looking dull and flakey. The Hydrating Care restores moisture.

Step 5

Before bed use the Vichy Normaderm Night Daily Corrective Care. Apply the treatment all over your face and leave on overnight. This product absorbs excess oil and tightens pores while you're asleep.

Warnings

  • Discontinue use and consult a dermatologist if irritation, redness or peeling occurs.
