Avene is one of my favorite thermal water-based pharmacy brands. During periods when my skin is dehydrated, sensitive and tightens on my cheeks and I notice that dehydration wrinkles start to form due to dryness, I use care that hydrates and soothes the skin, in order to restore the damaged skin barrier. It takes me 7 to 10 days to do this, and in that period I don’t use exfoliating tonics (acids), alcohol products and I don’t do double cleanses.
A healthy skin barrier retains moisture and maintains skin hydration, while damaged (due to excessive exfoliation, dry indoor air, winter), visible on dry, sensitive and tight skin, leaks moisture and the skin is exposed to harmful external influences. Oily skin can also be dehydrated, and it is a condition, not a skin type, which is caused by damage to the hydrolipid film, which leads to transepidermal water loss (TWL).
One of the products I use in these stages is Avene’s Hydrance Intensive Care Serum for dehydrated and sensitive skin.
Ingredients: Avene Thermal Spring Water (Avene Aqua), Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Isocetyl Stearoyl Stearate, Triethylhexanoin, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Methyl Gluceth-20, Benzoic Acid, Beta-Sitos Alkyl Glucoside, C14-22 Alcohols, Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance (Perfume), Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate, Sodium Hydroxide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Water (Aqua).
The serum contains 77% of Avena thermal water, glycerin, vitamin E and a patented lipid complex (Cohederm ™) to restore the skin barrier and prevent moisture loss from the skin. It enables deep hydration and thus has a preventive effect against wrinkles and fine lines.
The serum has a light milky texture, is quickly absorbed, does not leave an oily film on the skin and requires a small amount of product to achieve optimal hydration. You can also use it as the “first serum”, leaving the skin soft and soothed. It is applied to cleansed skin of the face and neck, morning and evening. The scent is wonderful because of the perfume in the composition, which can bother people with extremely sensitive skin.
