If your quest for seamless skin is often thwarted by looming deadlines, super-early starts and a distinct lack of sleep, you're not alone. A hectic lifestyle means we have more than enough on our plates to waste time worrying about wrinkles and pigmentation, but day by day these factors are ageing our skin - and that's before we've touched on the complexion-ravaging effects of environmental aggressors we can't control, such as pollution and UV rays.

This is where the Vichy Slow Âge range comes in. Yep, a younger-looking, lit-from-within complexion is now easily within touching distance - and here's how.

1. It Prevents & Corrects Damage Caused By Environmental Factors

Just because you can't physically see free radicals like UV rays, doesn't mean they aren't sapping your skin of its youthful glow and elasticity day after day, and with pollution also at record highs, choosing products that help to shield your skin from the factors that slowly and silently age you is so important.

Enter the Slow Âge Fluid Moisturiser. It may be lighter-than-light but the added Antioxidant Baïcalin and SPF 25 means the product acts like an apron against environmental aggressors and stops them from penetrating the skin - like a little army of skin-friendly ingredients fighting your complexion's corner throughout the day.

2. It Slows Down The Appearance of Ageing Signs

Now for the science-y bit. Research has found that UV causes damage to collagen and elastin in the skin, which can cause fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to Vichy Slow Âge, your skin is protected from UV with their broad spectrum SPF, so that the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles are slowed down, leaving you with a healthy and radiant looking complexion.

3. Say Hello To The Benefits Of Probiotic-Derived Bifidus

Not just inside your breakfast yogurt pot, probiotics can also be used in skincare. In fact, the Vichy Slow Âge range really harnesses the benefits of probiotic skincare. Once absorbed into the skin, Slow Âge Fluid Moisturiser, enriched with strengthening probiotic-derived bifidus, is clinically proven to slow down the appearance of ageing signs. Fine lines appear reduced, complexion looks fresh, even and more radiant, and skin feels firmer. And those with sensitive skin can rejoice, because the entire range is tested under dermatological control.

4. It Provides Skin With 24-Hour Hydration

For days when nothing seems to quench your skin's thirst, Vichy have developed the Slow Âge Cream Moisturiser, supercharged with Vichy's Mineralizing Thermal Water. As you massage it in, the droplets disperse on the skin, hydrating instantly throughout the day. But the best part is that as the smooth texture floods the skin's surface, it feels like your face is being caressed by velvet. It doesn't get any more luxurious than that.

5. Hero Ingredients Target The Tricky-To-Treat Eye Area

Typically, skin around the eye area is much thinner than anywhere else on the face, which sometimes makes it difficult to treat - especially when you throw free radicals like pollution and UV rays into the mix. But, Vichy has enlisted the help of a dream team of naturally inspired active ingredients to help slow down the appearance of skin's ageing signs in the form of Slow Âge Eye Cream.

This eye cream, enriched with Ginko Biloba and Caffeine, makes dark circles appear less visible, makes the skin look firmer and ensures the eye area is protected against external aggressors.

6. Say Hello To The Benefits Of Probiotic-Derived Bifidus

Not just inside your breakfast yogurt pot, probiotics can also be used in skincare. In fact, the Vichy Slow Âge range really harnesses the benefits of probiotic skincare. Once absorbed into the skin, Slow Âge Fluid Moisturiser, enriched with strengthening probiotic-derived bifidus, is clinically proven to slow down the appearance of ageing signs. Fine lines appear reduced, complexion looks fresh, even and more radiant, and skin feels firmer. And those with sensitive skin can rejoice, because the entire range is tested under dermatological control.

7. It'll Encourage You To Go Bare-Faced

Your skin tone will look so even and radiant, you'll be tempted to ditch the make-up all together. Anything that knocks a few minutes off our morning routine gets our vote.

8. It Won't Cost You The Earth

The cost of your favourite celebrity's arsenal may be akin to a small island, but Vichy have nine years of research to show that you don't need to splurge to achieve seamless skin. As fantastic as they are, no product in the Slow Âge range retails for more than £30, so you'll still have enough cash left over to put aside for those designer sandals. Go on, treat yourself.

Conclusion? Thanks to external factors like pollution and UV rays, it's pretty difficult to fight modern life itself, but it's so easy to protect your skin from it - and Vichy's Slow Âge range does exactly that.

Life proof your skin, thanks to Vichy's Slow Âge range. Slow down, age well and visit Vichy online to discover more.
