Bioderma launches to soothe and repair
August 27, 2015
Sometimes skin accidents and conditions pop up and you can’t use your normal skin/body care to get relief and repair. Ever been in a situation like that? Skin flares up, irritations drive you up the wall, knocks and bruises happen and you just don’t know what to use to make it all better. BIODERMA has recently launched some newbies and I thought I’d share them, along with a golden oldie or two.
From their CICABIO range, aimed at repairing damaged skin, the brand has launced three products I think everyone should have in their arsenal. CICABIO SOOTHING REPAIRING CARE SPF50 is for skin that has been damaged and over exposed to sun (think a falling-asleep-in-the-sun scenario). It contains a very high sun protection factor of 50 and instantly relieves, purifies and restores skin while the soothing action takes inflammation down a few notches. It reduces the risk of the formation of hyperpigmentation and brown spots and is perfect to use if you have had any dermatological treatments or aesthetic procedures done. Copper and zinc acts as anti bacterial agents scarring is limited. The active ingredient of Antalgicine relieves itching and I’ve found the formula to be nicely moisturizing, increasing the skin’s comfort levels. The cream is not greasy or sticky at all and protects, soothes as well as increasing the skin’s tolerance. Completely photostable, water resistant and fragrance free, it can be used on all skin types.
Another new launch is the CICABIO SOOTHING REPAIRING CREAM. Working much like the above product, this more creamy formula can be used after peels, non-abrasive laser treatments, sudden irritation and inflammation. Due to the copper and resveratrol content it can be used to aid the skin in reconstruction and Antalgicine relieves skin when it feels itchy and you have the need to scratch. The formula contains hyaluronic acid to moisturize and leaves a protective, comfortable layer on the skin. This is my go-to product when my skin flares up these days. I use it instead of a normal moisturizer when my skin irritation levels go through the roof and also use it as a spot treatment on burns anywhere else on my body.
The last new launch in this range is the CICABIO BRUISES, KNOCKS & BUMPS CREAM and I think everyone should have this in their bathroom cabinet. This lightweight cream absorbs easily and is used to absorb swelling, relieves bruises when small accidents happen, as well as after post aesthetic surgery. It contains arnica that relieves discomfort and helps diminish bruising super quick. Zinc helps minimize bacterial infection and glycerin helps moisturize. The cream also hightens the skin’s tolerance levels to bruising and can be used as a preventative product also.
From their ATODERM range, I thought the following two products could helps to calm dry and irritated skin all over. NUTRI-PROTECTIVE CLEANSING CREAM is a stunningly soft cleansing cream for very dry and sensitive skin. It cleanses and moisturizes in one and can be used on face and body. I have heard some people using it on reactive flaky scalp, so eczematic and skin prone to psoriasis can use this with ease. The formula helps build up the skin’s protective layer and lessens skin’s reaction to products causing dryness and irritation. It is lightly foaming but can be used around the eyes with ease, alternatively all over the body. I found it intensely soothing and nourishing and great to use as a quick-fix for a few times to relieve dryness and inflamation.
Lastly, also from this range, ATODERM PREVENTATIVE NOURISHING DERMO-CONSOLIDATING CREAM is a great product to use in a preventative way. Using it means you lessen the risk of skin getting reactive, dryness to become a problem and keeping skin soft, calm and moisturized. According to stats, around 60% of babies are born with damaged skin causing dryness. This cream will strengthen the skin barrier to promote healthy skin with prolonged use. It contains reconstructive fatty acids of omega 3 and 6, biolipids that stimulate the protective layer and encourages production of lipds and proteins that form a healthy skin barrier going forward. It can be used on babies and skin of all ages, will not cause irritation and spreads and absorbs easily.
See? There is no need to see baby or anyone in the family suffer from sensitivity, knocks and bruises, dryness or irritation when you can use these Bioderm products. Keep a look out for them at Dischem and selected pharmacies.
