The confidence of healthy skin
Skin is an important protective barrier for the body against external aggressors (wind, extreme temperatures, pollution, etc.). Any disturbance of its balance can affect the health of your body. Lire plus
Some areas may have special needs as the structure of the skin varies according to the part of the body. The texture is different between the hands, the feet and the stomach for example.
Daily washing allows you to :
Secondly, body care products help:
For long-lasting soft and supple skin, we recommend this body care routine.
Water alone is not enough to wash your body. Impurities should be removed with a shower product such as a dermatological bar, or any other shower gel that is kind to sensitive skin. This prevents the risk of dryness and tightness caused by conventional soaps.
To avoid the same risks, you should also make sure that you do not rinse with water that is too hot. This deteriorates the hydrolipidic film, an oily layer that protects your skin from the environment.
Furthermore, we recommend opting for a shower over a bath to limit the amount of time you come into contact with tap water with a limescale content that dries the skin and chlorine content that irritates the epidermis
Finally, dry yourself gently by dabbing your towel rather than rubbing vigorously.
Once or twice a week, use a body scrub to remove dead skin and impurities. The skin will then benefit even more from the properties of your body moisturiser.
Moisturising your body’s skin every day, and, in particular, after exfoliation, helps to maintain the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis made up of water and fat. Avène has formulated moisturising body creams for you and also a range especially adapted to hands an area of the body that is over-exposed.
These care products will hel3p you keep your skin glowing, protect it, prevent dryness and slow down skin ageing.
Protecting yourself from the sun is essential for keeping your skin young and healthy. Discover our sun protection products adapted to different skin tones and sensitivities. More frequent application to particularly exposed areas of the body such as the chest, hands and arms can prevent and limit the appearance of age spots.
You should also take care to stay in the shade during peak exposure times, usually between 12 noon and 3 pm.
In winter, be sure to cover up with warm clothing to protect your body from the redness, tightness, and itching associated with intense temperature variations.
The dry air in homes due to heating is also the main cause of skin dryness in winter. It, therefore, makes sense to turn to richer body care products, containing cold cream to moisturise and protect the skin against the elements.
The texture of body care products varies according to your skin type and the problems encountered.
The temperature can also influence your choice of body product. Choose rich-textured body care products, such as balms, when it's cold; and light textures in summer, such as lotions or creams that are more quickly absorbed by the skin.
