#1 The Instant RefinerVichy-Night-Peeling

Vichy Idealia Night Peeling

According to our recent tweet, acid toners are proving to be a real skincare saviour for most right now and Vichy’s Idealia Night Peeling is no exception. Created without gritty grains or beads, this exfoliating lotion works gently overnight to resurface and refine the texture of your skin, encouraging a youthful glow by morning.

Night Peeling is packed with skin-smoothing ingredients. Within its water-like texture lies a sensitive skin-friendly combination of 4% glycolic acid to dissolve the bonds between dead skin cells. The combination of antioxidants, fermented black tea and polyphenols are what helps to repair your skin overnight, letting you wake up to a soft, even complexion.


How do you use Vichy Idealia Night Peeling?

Depending on your skin’s sensitivity levels, it may be best to start using Vichy Peeling two to three times a week at first, then when your skin starts feeling comfortable, up your application to alternate nights.

It’s recommended that you apply Idealia Night Peeling in the evening to freshly cleansed skin. Use it before your serum but after your face wash. The Vichy Idealia Night Recovery Gel-Balm is the perfect final step if your main aim is to revive the softness of your skin.
