Eau Thermale Avène Skin Recovery Cream, $40.70 for 50ml
Mention healthy skin, and barrier function is likely the first thing that comes to mind. After all, the skin is able to effectively retain moisture, not to mention keep out potential irritants that can cause inflammation, only when its barrier function is working well.
However, due to a multitude of reasons, among them, fluctuating temperatures, harsh topical products and stress, the skin’s lipid barrier can become compromised. This may lead to dry and tight skin with flaking or an itching sensation, signs typically associated with sensitive skin.
Developed by sensitive skin experts Eau Thermale Avène, the Skin Recovery Cream is formulated with Parcerine, an active that soothes and softens skin while reducing its reactivity. It is also fortified with Avène thermal spring water, which is rich in minerals that help reduce inflammation, restore moisture and strengthen skin.
Formulated in accordance with the Sterile Cosmetics Charter, it is completely preservative-free, making it optimal for even the most hypersensitive or sensitised skin types. In addition, you can be sure that all ingredients in the Skin Recovery Cream are selected specifically for their efficacy, purity and tolerance. Its packaging also features a unique sealing method that prevents backflow of the product, thus eliminating any risk of contamination.
Best paired with the Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion, this instantly relieves and helps strengthen sensitive skin, and gives long-lasting protection against the elements.
Available at all Watsons, Guardian and Unity stores.
