Acne Is The #1 Skin Concern Cited Amongst Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic and Asian Ethnicities

NEW YORK, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In a study of 300 women, the L'Oreal Institute for Ethnic Hair and Skin Research revealed that ACNE is the MOST COMMON PROBLEM, as well as the biggest skin concern cited amongst all four major ethnicities. Vichy NORMADERM Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is clinically proven to effectively address acne-related skin conditions.

Over-the-counter products and home remedies are the top two most-used approaches to treat ACNE. But still, many women have a very low level of satisfaction from these treatments. Vichy Laboratoires' breakthrough NORMADERM Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is the one-stop solution for acne concerns. In fact,69 percent of women across all four major ethnicities reported clearer skin with less acne imperfections after just four weeks of use.(1)

In addition to visibly clearer skin, Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic and Asian women who used Vichy NORMADERM Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care showed substantial reduction on all acne-related parameters including: tightened pores, an immediate matte effect, a more even complexion and a reduction in skin redness. After eight weeks of using Vichy NORMADERM Hydrating Care twice daily(2), 90 percent of African-American women experienced tightened pores, 96 percent of Caucasian women noticed an immediate matte effect, 86 percent of Asian women had a more even complexion and 81 percent of Hispanic women noticed a reduction in skin redness.(1)

Oil-free, lightweight and easily-absorbed, NORMADERM Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care replenishes skin with balanced moisture with Zincadone+, an oil-regulating and antibacterial ingredient consisting of renown Salicylic Acid, which encourages the stimulation of dead surface cells and clears acne blemishes and blackheads, and Eperulin, a new organic ingredient that soothes and regulates inflammations. Additionally, Vichy's patent-pending Intra-Pore Technology with micro-exfoliating LHA (Lipo-Hydroxy-Acid) allows each ingredient to penetrate into the heart of the pore, to protect and purify the sebaceous glands, reducing imperfections and preventing future breakouts. Skin is healthier, softer and smoother.

NORMADERM Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care, $21.00, 1.7 oz., is available on and at CVS/pharmacy, Longs Drugs, Duane Reade and Rite Aid.
