Why use a restorative cream?

It’s important to use restorative face care products when the skin barrier is weakened and the skin feels uncomfortable, with tightness, tingling, discomfort and redness or a rough feel.   

Several factors can weaken the skin and require the use of repairing creams:

  • External aggressors such as wind, sun, cold, pollution.
  • A small superficial puncture wound.
  • Specific surgical, dermatological or cosmetic procedures.
  • Or, more simply, a constitutional fragility due to dry skin and .

How do you choose the right repairing face cream for you?

Which cream should you use to repair the skin on your face every day?

Repairing cream is used to repair the epidermis, restore skin comfort and reinforce the skin's protective barrier function. Soothing, purifying and softening properties are also welcome for taking care of small cuts or wounds, discomfort and roughness.

The Cicalfate range has been formulated with an antibacterial copper and zinc complex as well as a patented postbiotic restorativeactive ingredient [C+-Restore]TM. This formulation meets the daily or occasional needs of the whole family.

Here are some tips on how to choose your restorativetreatment from the Cicalfate range:

  • The RestoringProctective cream helps to heal and soothe dry discomfort and redness on the face, such as those around the mouth and in the corners of the mouth, chapped lips, nose discomfort and redness caused by a cold, discomfort after shaving, scratches, redness caused by the sun, superficial burns, etc.
  • The Absorbing Repair Spray is suitable for skin prone to maceration or moist irritated areas. It cleanses, soothes and quickly restores skin problems such as chickenpox (in addition to an antiseptic treatment), and discomfort and redness of the skin folds on the neck of infants, for example.
  • The Restorative Lip Cream restores, nourishes and protects localised areas such as chapped lips, scabs on the cheeks, discomfort and redness or dryness around the mouth and around the nostrils.

The Cold Cream range is ideal for nourishing, protecting, enhancing and restoring dry lips each day during winter:

  • The Intense Nourishing Lip Balm is enriched with shea butter and jojoba oil to nourish, repair and protect the lips.
  • The Nourishing Lip Balm is an easy-to-apply, water-resistant format for long-lasting nourishment of the lips.

During the summer, you’re better of using after-sun repair cream. After each day in the sun, hydrate and soothe your skin with After Sun Repair - Creamy Gel.

Which Eau Thermale Avène restorative cream should you use for a facial scar?

A face cream dedicated to the repair of scars must be composed of restorative active ingredients that promote the healing of small wounds or cuts and also protect the skin barrier while it regenerates. Purifying active ingredients help to limit bacterial proliferation in the scar. The use of a repair cream on a scar helps to minimise the mark left behind.

Initially, the use of Cicalfate+ Cream allows the scar to be restored until the skin heals.

Then, Cicalfate+ Scar Gel improves the appearance of scars in children and adults thanks to its hydrating, softening and remodelling action. It makes it easier to massage the scars yourself and leaves a protective film on the skin.

Finally, following a superficial dermatological procedure in adults, opt for the Post Procedure Skin Repair Emulsion.

How do you use Eau Thermale Avène Cicalfate on the face?

Cicalfate repairing creams should be used once or twice a day, in addition to your daily products for sensitive skin and dry skin. In the morning, in addition to their repairing properties, they will protect the skin all day long from external aggressors.

Before applying your face cream, make sure you clean, dry and disinfect any superficial lesions if you have any.

Then, to enhance the effect of the repairing cream and soothe your discomfort and redness, spray a fine mist of Thermal Spring Water Spray beforehand.

Follow this up by applying Cicalfate+ Cream with light and gentle massaging motions or Scar Gel following to the recommended massaging method.

Continue this facial care routine until the skin is completely healed and any imperfections and discomfort and redness disappear.
