I know I haven't posted in a while, it's because something exciting is coming up soon! I will keep you posted about this and I do hope you will continue to support me in this new endeavor of mine :) In the meantime, I would like to share with you a not-so-new-discovery of mine:
For more than 260 years, the first thermal spring facility in Avène continues to treat patients with atopic dermatities, eczema, psoriasis and burns. Now, in the 21st century, it has expanded its facility via skin caring products that have been made available worldwide.
Two product lines that my family loves are the sun care and whitening ranges. I know, opposite collections, right? But for us, Filipinos, who love the sand and the sun; we need the best sun care protection to keep our skin cancer-free and looking young. We don't want our skin to age faster with wrinkled skin caused by sun exposure, don't you agree? As complementary to this sun care line, the whitening line that will help us even out our sun spots, blemishes and scars.
Laboratoires Dermatologiques Avène has long had their sun care line, but they recently added The SunSitive protection® FORMULA INNOVATION, which combines high-performance and high-tolerance photo-protective complex with a powerful anti-oxidant for cellular protection and Avène Thermal Spring Water for its soothing qualities. All 100% photostable, they are all paraben-free, and best of all, highly water resistant. Try their Very High Protection Emulsion 50+ and Very High Protection Mineral Cream 50+, both are very light in texture and can blend well on to our skin.
To support your sun care line (more so during the off-summer season), why don't you try Avène's whitening range? The line boasts of myrtle extract that prevents melanin production and regulates skin pigmentation. It also has Ascorbyl Glucoside, otherwise known as Vitamin C, that controls the source of skin pigmentation. It's also known to repair skin cells that are damaged by ultraviolet rays. Frequent usage reduces cell damage and promotes collagen synthesis to give firmer skin. Now, that's double duty action - whitens and firms!!!
Now, it might be a bit confusing which variant to use so here are some tips:
Avène Sensitive White Whitening Lotion is best for all skin types.
Avène Sensitive White Fluid is for normal to combination skin types, and is recommended to treat discoloration and best used to prevent brown spots from forming.
Avène Sensitive White Cream is for those with dry skin, which has she butter for extra hydration.
Avène Sensitive White Whitening Essense is a serum that's perfect for skin with dark and age spots. It gives a matte finish that's great for day wear.
