The last few Melbourne winters have been tough on us. To fight the cold our indoor heaters get cranked up high sometimes all day and night til our poor skin no longer knows what season has hit. During this winter period it is extremely important to take good care of your skin which can dry out through the constant changes of temperature and sometimes we need a little bit of extra help.
La Roche-Posay a brand committed to being pure and safe for sensitive skin uses thermal spring water as its main active ingredient in all it’s products. This ingredient is derived from filtering rain water through selenium reserves. Combining unique formulas of mineral salts this trace element it is renowned for its soothing anti-oxidant properties which fight against free radicals. Making La Roche-Posay unique in that their products are almost neutral in pH levels respecting the skin’s physiological balance. So not only will it sooth, cleanse, hydrate but also protect your skin against pollution.
As a person who has always had good skin requiring low maintenance it has been difficult adjusting to the seasonal changes and challenges that come with aging skin. However La Roche-Posay has been a delight to use, smells fresh like daisies and has been so easy to add to my daily skincare routine. Knowing that the product is endorsed by 25,000 dermatologists around the world also eases my mind as the products are always paraben free and specially designed for individuals with sensitive skin.
Solution Micellaire Physiologique – gently cleanses face eyes and lips.
Lipikar Gel Lavant – is a soothing protecting shower gel sensitive enough for your face/body and even gentle enough to use on babies.
Lotion Apaisante Physiologique – soothes and tones sensitive skin and prepares it for your moisturiser. Non-drying, and free from parabens, fragrance, alcohol, colorant and soap.
I should mention that even though La Roche-Posay is a French brand and dermatologist recommended doesn’t mean it is priced to match the brand. In fact it’s the very opposite and can be found easily at your nearest Priceline or Terry White pharmacy.
La Roche-Posay has definitely won me over and I will be recommending their products to anyone who wants to take better care of their skin without spending a fortune. Do it and your skin will thank you regardless of the season.
