How to Get Makeup Ready, Protected Skin | Vichy

Discover why creating a pre-primer step with a skin booster cannot only help to protect your skin, but also give you that healthy glow you’ve always wanted.

Does your foundation often become cakey and dry during the day? Is your skin dull and oily? Careful, pollution may be detracting from your overall look. In fact, it can not only affect the complexion, but also ruin your flawless-looking everyday makeup. Thankfully, Minéral 89 is here to help you to achieve a more beautiful, effortless look by protecting your makeup-ready skin. So just follow these 5 easy tips and glow with the flow!

5 Ways to Protect and Reinforce Your Makeup-Ready Skin

1. Start by fighting pollution


Pollution can be related not only to acne1 and sensitive skin2, but also to wrinkles and dark spots3. For your makeup routine, this implies having to add heavy layers to cover up fine lines, blemishes and redness, without treating the real problem. But now you can reduce the affect of all these issues with Minéral 89! This skin booster creates a film over the skin’s surface to decrease pollution adherence. The result? Healthy skin to obtain a natural coverage.

2. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize


Let's face it: dry skin can really make or break your look. When left untreated, the skin's surface becomes rough, causing your makeup to have a caked-on appearance. Like a canvas, your skin has to be soft and smooth for your makeup to look perfect. That’s why it’s so important to hydrate your complexion, no matter your skin type. Made with 89% Vichy Mineralizing Water and natural origin hyaluronic acid (known for its hydrating properties), Minéral 89 has a soothing gel texture, making it the ideal choice for creating a natural glowy effect. In fact, clinical tests demonstrate that after 28 days of using Mineral 89, skin is 26% more glowy, 21% more plumped and 20% more homogenous.* Hydration? Check.

3. Use Minéral 89 as a pre-primer step


Aside from protecting your skin against daily aggressors, Minéral 89 also works as a pre-primer to help prepare your skin for your favorite makeup products. Being light, fluid and quickly absorbed, it’s actually the perfect first step for your makeup routine, because it can be applied before foundation and concealer without leaving skin looking oily or sticky. Get ready to experience an amazing feeling of freshness followed by a more even coverage!

4. Choose non-comedogenic makeup


What does this mean, exactly? To put it simply, non-comedogenic refers to products without ingredients that can cause comedone formation. This typically presents as small pimples that resemble bumps. Being non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic, Minéral 89 only contains 11 ingredients, in order to keep the formula as safe and simple as possible.

5. Remember to remove makeup before bed


Last but not least, don’t forget to cleanse skin and let it breathe overnight. This is important not only to get rid of all impurities affecting your skin during the day, but also to avoid possible blemishes. Right after you’ve gently washed your face, how about applying Minéral 89 one more time? Your skin will look and feel more hydrated, protected and makeup-ready for the next day.
