ARCONA and Avene – Gentle Solutions for the Sensitive Crowd
Many of us have a tendency to be overly aggressive with our skin care products. While some of do have tolerant skin that can handle some very strong products, sensitivity is a very common problem that calls for a gentler program.
If you find that you often react to products, it might be time to take a step back and look for solutions that will improve your skin condition without creating additional symptoms like redness, inflammation and other forms of irritation.
I often recommend Avene to those who have especially sensitive skin. Despite the gentle approach, the brand delivers fabulous results with healing, soothing thermal water added to every product. Avene Rich Compensating Cream is a perfect choice for dry, sensitive skin that is fighting aging. The cream is rich in fatty acids that help to restore the critical lipid barrier of the skin. The formula is also rich in age-fighting antioxidants. I have found that this cream is very successful at restoring health and comfort to irritable skin.
For skin that seems to react to everything, I recommend Avene Cream for Intolerant Skin. The ingredient list is simple and does not contain parabens, fragrance or colorant. This is a lightweight product that moisturizes and protects the most delicate of skin. It is so gentle, it can even be used on the eye area.
Acneic skin tends to be offender number one as far as being too aggressive with products. Not all skin can handle strong acne medications. For the more sensitive types and for those who prefer a more natural approach to skin care, I can’t say enough good things about ARCONA Travel Kit Basic Five – Problem Skin. This is a five piece kit that strengthens the skin so that it can better defend itself against breakouts. Rather than drying up the skin, the system arms the skin with everything it needs to be clear and healthy. I have a horrible time deciding which product I love best. The cleansing bar smells fabulous and really gets the skin clean without causing irritation. However, best product just might be the Tabula Rasa which clears the pores, exfoliates and kills bacteria.
ARCONA also offers some great hydrators. My favorite is ARCONA Magic White Ice. It is a super lightweight moisturizer that instantly sinks in so as not to leave any kind of residue. It looks in essential moisture and actually works to clarify problem skin. I recommend this for oilier skin types that experience breakouts.
