La Roche-Posay and Uriage – Saving your skin this party season himag November 28, 2017 Hi Beauty Your party season skincare routine, with La Roche-Posay With the festive party season fast approaching, it’s time to up your skincare regime! The countdown is on, so get ready with some advice from La Roche-Posay on how to prep and preen your skin and achieve your skincare best. The basic tool when it comes to a skincare routine is a good cleanser. Helping to wash away make-up and excess sebum, minimising pores, soothing irritation and helping to balance skin, La Roche-Posay Physiological Cleansing Milk is ideal for all skin types to help achieve these results. €15.50 Physiological Cleansing Milk is a gentle yet effective cleansing solution for all skin types. Suitable for removing even high coverage foundation. It can remove waterproof makeup, even from the most sensitive skin. Moisturising and soothing cleansing agents are selected for optimal tolerance. It leaves the skin feeling softer and nourished. The cold winter weather can cause havoc to the skin, causing it to become sensitive, dry, itchy and dehydrated. With the addition of central heat, this can add further chaos to our skin, so it’s important to find suitable products to bring you from winter weary to party ready. The Hydraphase Intense Mask will deeply hydrate thirsty skin to intensely moisturise and restore balance. €16.50 La Roche-Posay’s Hydraphase Intense Mask, infused with hyaluronic acid and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, provides high performance, intensive hydration for the skin. Hydraphase Intense Mask contains ingredients to intensively hydrate, soothe and comfort the skin, while improving skin’s suppleness and softness. For daily lip protection, Cicaplast Lips Barrier Repairing Balm provides long-lasting soothing protection for dry or chapped lips. €6.50 It is a protective and replenishing treatment in a custom-tailored texture made especially for lips. Cicaplast Lips is a replenishing lip balm that creates a protective layer on lips to immediately fill cracks and prevent them from reoccurring. Its formula includes lipids, which act as a physical barrier; panthenol, which acts as a biological barrier, providing hydration and healing and shea butter to relieve intense sensations of discomfort. La Roche-Posay Consultant Dermatologist Dr. Niki Ralph, recommends how to achieve and maintain your skincare best this festive season: “Ultimately, I would recommend a regular skincare routine, which shouldn’t be discontinued just because it is the holiday season. I would suggest always removing make-up at night with a gentle cleanser/foaming face wash or La Roche-Posay Micellar Water. Try to avoid cleansing products with alcohol as this can be too drying to the skin and lead to redness and scaling of the skin. If you haven’t been as diligent with removing make-up each night and possibly wearing heavier make-up than normal, I would also suggest a gentle exfoliation of the facial skin twice weekly. I would avoid any more frequently than this as it may lead to too much irritation of the skin.” Although this time of year means lots of late nights, sleep is important as this not only keeps your body well-rested, but also allows skin to rejuvenate itself naturally. In addition to sleep, for those suffering with the trickiest of skin types, Toleriane Ultra Night soothes, calms and protects all types of sensitive and reactive skin. Clinically proven to make your skin less sensitive night after night, this is suitable for sensitive, reactive skin prone to dryness, tightness, redness, itchiness or burning. €19 La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Ultra Night is the first high tolerance, ultra-targeted solution for highly sensitive or allergy prone skin.
