When Less Is Best!
There’s a lot of (good!) reasons for simplifying your skincare routine. On average, women apply 12 beauty products per day and they can have a high number of ingredients and irritants such as fragrance, preservatives, essential oils and alcohol. This can leave the skin barrier reactive to external conditions like pollution, climatic conditions and changes in temperature.
What are the signs?
You might feel discomfort, tingling and tightness especially after cleansing the face. When this happens, you know it’s time to simplify! By offering the skin just the essentials, it has time to recover, protect and boost the natural defences.
How much is too much?
The quantity of products is not the concern but it’s important to choose the right ones!
When your skin is feeling hypersensitive and reactive, we recommend the minimum of ingredients and a very simple program to soothe the skin such as our Intolerant range, based on 3 steps:
1. Cleanse with a rinse-free cleanser like our Extremely gentle cleanser lotion.
2. Soothe the skin with the Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray: The Water has unique soothing and anti-irritant properties and can be used as often as necessary.
3. Hydrate the skin with a long-lasting protection like our Skin recovery cream that respects the skin allowing it to recover and reduce reactivity.
Our Skin recovery cream is produced according to Avène’s unique concept- the Sterile Cosmetics. The formula and the product are completely sterile, which means there is no need to add anything other than the essential ingredients. Preservative free, paraben free, fragrance free and alcohol free- it’s what we don’t include that makes Skin recovery cream recommended by Australian dermatologists.
