I think most of you have figured out I highly recommend La Roche-Posay when it comes to skincare. What I appreciate the most about La Roche Posay is that their cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreens contain their proprietary thermal spring water, which has prebiotics. So in addition to their other nourishing ingredients, the prebiotics play a role by maintaining and repairing a healthy skin barrier -- something that is especially important in the setting of acne, rosacea, dry skin, and eczema.
Not only does a healthy skin microbiome protect your skin against unwanted pathogens and infections, it can keep your skin looking healthy and free of issues like dryness and itching. Check out a few of my favorites!
- As Fall begins and the weather gets cooler, my skin changes and needs some extra hydration. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer is my go-to but especially this time of year. It’s made for sensitive skin and provides 48-hour hydration and prebiotic benefits. I love the smooth and light feel and the prebiotic benefits help balance the skin microbiome. Glycerin and niacinamide help to hydrate, repair and soothe. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 with soothing properties. The key ingredient though is La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water which is naturally rich in minerals with scientifically demonstrated antioxidant properties. Retailing at $19.99, I think this is an affordable option for a moisturizer like this.
- Another essential I use everyday is The La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray. This versatile spray is very refreshing and provides an instant calming and softening, leaving your face and body hydrated. A high concentration of selenium provides antioxidant protection to shield from free radicals. And it is even suitable for children, babies, eczema and atopy-prone skin. A nice skincare hack is applying the spray prior to moisturizing. Moisturizers work better on damp skin to really seal in the moisture.
- Don’t forget the body! The La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ Body Cream for Extra Dry Skin Intense Repair Moisturizing Cream is not greasy and really replenishes the skin’s essential lipids. With a high concentration of their Prebiotic Thermal Water and patented Aqua Posae Filiformis you can rebalance the skin microbiome. You can say good-bye to extra dry skin and hello to a clean, healthy glow.
