Walk past any beauty editor’s desk and you’ll see a rotating stockpile of products, with one legacy standout: the famed Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water ($13). All skin types and grievances can benefit from a misting of this vitamin-filled dew that is sourced from the Massif Central volcanoes in Southern France. When pollution, ultraviolet rays and stress tax and age skin, this thermal water steps in to do damage control like a publicist handling an outspoken celeb. “Vichy water stimulates cell production and the epidermal structure of skin,” says Pascale Mora, scientific communications director for Vichy International. Though the packaging recently underwent its second mini-tweak, the ingredients remain as true as our love for Chris Pratt. After a generous spritz, layer skin with Vichy Aqualia Thermal Mineral Water Gel ($39.95), which is also boosted with moisture-attracting hyaluronic acid.
