Redness, itching, flaking, tingling and burning: most of us are familiar with the symptoms of skin sensitivities, but did you know there are varying degrees of sensitivity that benefit from specific treatments?
It’s this tailored approach that sets Avene apart from many other skincare brands. The French company takes pride in combining pharmaceutical ethics with cosmetic appeal for skincare that has its basis in proven dermatological treatments and a historical discovery.
Each product in its signature Eau Thermale Avène product range is specifically designed to address the needs of sensitive and allergy prone skin and incorporates the soothing benefits of natural spring water.
In 1736 in the small Southern France town of Avène, a spring was discovered and its water quickly became renowned for its soothing and anti-irritating properties, which assisted in helping to relieve skin problems. This local knowledge was officially confirmed in 1874 when France declared the Avène Thermal Spring to be of public benefit in dermatology.
Of course, we now know the Avène thermal spring water has a pH level close to neutral, is rich in silica, low in mineral content and is bacteriologically pure – a combination that helps to restore the skin’s natural balance.
This very water forms the basis for the entire Eau Thermale Avène range of skincare, designed specifically for the three degrees of skin sensitivity: sensitive, intolerant and allergic. Each skin type can benefit from using Thermal Spring Water like a toner after cleansing or any time the skin requires soothing. Sunburn, windburn, nappy rash, eczema, psoriasis, insect bites, redness and the effects of surgery are especially likely to respond well to this gentle water mist.
Beyond this, it’s simple to create a specific Eau Thermale Avène regimen to treat everything from delicate infant needs to young, problem skin, extreme dehydration, intolerant and irritated skin, atopic skin that can lead to eczema and anti-ageing demands. The Eau Thermale Avène range also includes suncare and men’s skincare.
Eau Thermale Avène is available in Priceline, Priceline Pharmacy and other leading pharmacies nationally.
