So yours truly had a small bunch of products sent to me from Eau Thermale Avene and I was pretty excited and couldn't wait to try it on my husband and myself.
My husband was a diabetic and has some skin problems with his foot, and that was definitely worrisome to me, because as almost everyone knows if a diabetic's foot is not properly taken care of, it could turn septic and get worse until one needs to amputate the foot.
Other then my husband, I had seasonal skin problems too, there are times specially when the weather is too hot, my skin becomes pretty dry and itchy. It tends to irritate a lot... and this was like heaven sent. But before we go further, let me tell you about each of the products....
Firstly, the Avène Trixera+ Selectiose Emollient Cream is said to be great for soothing sensitivity and irritation caused by eczema
The highly emollient formulation alleviates medium to intense eczema in babies, children and adults, and works to make skin feel more comfortable and less tight. Skin hypersensitivity and irritation are reduced, and inflammation is calmed considerably. The skin’s hydrolipidic barrier is reinforced with the thick and creamy formulation, reliving itching and protecting skin from external aggressions.
The Avène Trixera+ Emollient Cream has two modes of action:
By reducing skin hypersensitivity:
- Avène thermal spring water, with soothing and anti-irritant properties, reduces sensations of discomfort and softens the skin.
- Selectiose, a new active ingredient developed by Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique research teams, limits hyper reactivity by slowing down inflow of reactive cells at skin level.
By tackling intense skin dryness:
- The plant-based lipidic trio, endowed with a structure comparable to that of epidermal lipids, promotes the reconstruction of the cutaneous barrier and therefore fights dehydration and microbial attacks.
- The Ultra-rich active principles help to restore the hydrolipidic film.
Trixéra+ Emollient Cream leaves atopic skin better balanced and therefore more supple.
Apply Trixéra+ Emollient Cream once or twice a day to very dry areas of the face or body.
Then there is the Avène Cold Cream Ultra Rich Soap-Free Cleansing Bar which is a daily cleansing care for the sensitive skin of adults, children and babies.
Soap free, it has an extremely mild washing formula and a pH level which is perfectly adapted to that of the skin, allowing for gentle cleansing. Its creamy lather makes it very pleasant to use and leaves skin soft and fresh.
Can be used for face and body. Just massage over damp skin then rinse and gently dry.
The Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream is clinically proven to be an effective skin recovery cream that helps maintain an optimal healing environment during the skin recovery process. Micronized sucralfate helps the healing process when topically applied. Copper sulfate and zinc sulfate work synergistically to promote and maintain a healthy enviroment during skin recovery.
Last but not least, the Avene Thermal Spring Water is a biologically pure, naturally occurring hydrating mist which is ideal to softens and sooth sensitive skin. Full of trace minerals and silica, Thermal Spring Water leaves a soothing barrier over the skin. Avene Thermal Spring Water is ideal for those with sensitive, sensitized or stressed skin.Thermal Spring Water Contains rigorously selected raw materials and is manufactured and controlled under the strictest conditions. Dermatologist-tested on sensitive skin. Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Developed with hypoallergenic fragrance.
- Spray on to the skin in a fine mist. Wait for a few seconds then pat dry.
Personally I love this item the best as I bring it everywhere I go and use it whenever I feel tired, hot, heaty, etc...
And well, like I mentioned, I used all the products on my husband's foot and thankfully after a few uses, it definitely looks a lot better and not that dry or irritated anymore.
I also use the Avène Trixera+ Emollient Cream and the Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream on my skin irritations and it definitely soothes my skin a lot. There is not so much redness or itch and the skin considerably calms down.
