La Roche-Posay is a tiny village located in the French region of La Vienne, known for its Selenium-rich spring water, which is particularly beneficial to the skin and has been used to treat skin conditions since the days of Napoleon. Spring water, or water that came from a spring or natural underground source, has a healthy amount of minerals and nutrients. The energy in spring water is said to have excellent effects on our health, helping to rejuvenate our body. It contains sulfur, which is therapeutic for your skin and helps fight acne, opening and cleansing the pores of bacteria and chemicals.
In 1975 the La Roche-Posay Laboratory was created at this site, offering innovative cleansing and treatment products developed with and intended for dermatologists. Renowned for its beneficial action on the skin, La Roche-Posay thermal spring water is used in each and every product produced by the La Roche-Posay brand. Thanks to its antioxidant properties, it helps protect the skin from environmental stresses and its soothing action makes it the essential treatment for very sensitive or irritated skin (hair removal, shaving, aesthetic procedure, sun exposure, climatic variations, etc.). This effective, well tolerated water differentiates the brand and gives it its unquestionable credibility with 25,000 dermatologists who recommend it to thousands of women, men and children who use it every day. Whatever your skin care need might be, La Roche-Posay provides a suitable skincare and make-up solution to transform the daily life of even sensitive skin. Today, La Roche-Posay is the European leader in dermatological skin care.
We highlighted a few of our favorite La Roche-Posay products for you to check out:
La Roche-Posay Redermic Plus Eyes
Too much squinting in the hot summer sun can cause some serious eye damage and wrinkles. This anti-wrinkle eye treatment is the perfect remedy! It contains Madecassoside which fills in deep wrinkles , while hyaluronic acid smoothes surface wrinkles. Another cool thing about this eye treatment is that it uses neurosensine to combat micro-inflammatory stress in the skin which is an aging trigger. Within hours of applying, my eye area felt firmer, toned and moisturized. It definitely helps in making me feel and look great with no makeup. I would definitely like to add this product to my normal beauty routine to keep crows feet and wrinkles at bay.
Anthelios 60 Ultra Fluid Face
What I hate about most sunscreens is that when you put them on your delicate face, it can burn and be so uncomfortable to wear. Thankfully this isn’t the case with La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios products! I take Anthelios 60 Ultra Fluid Face with me everywhere and apply this sunscreen avidly. This fluid is so light that it instantly sets into my skin and offers a soft, matte finish. The last thing anyone wants wearing sunscreen is that white residue left over and you won’t get it from this. Not only does it protect against UVA and UVB rays, it’s non-comedogenic and water-resistant. The added bonus is that the formula is photostable, so it lasts even when it’s sitting in the sun.
