Our tips for your skin
The confidence of healthy skin
When dry skin becomes synonymous with discomfort to the point of itching, in adults and even more so in children, it’s no longer just a question of moisturizing: the skin's barrier function and comfort must be restored.
Find out more about our XeraCalm A.D. skin care products – specially designed for atopic skin – and how we put our expertise at the service of your peace of mind.
To relieve itchy skin
This is THE emergency SOS treatment for intense localised itching. It immediately reduces the intensity of itching and peaks of dryness on recurring itchy areas of the face, body and eyelids. And because intense localised itching can happen anywhere, anytime, its small size means you can take it with you wherever you go.
A FEW WORDS FROM OUR EXPERT
The European Dermatology Forum awards XeraCalm A.D. skin care products Emollient Plus status. Emollient Plus products improve the lesions of atopic eczema and influence the skin microbiome in patients with atopic eczema.
A tailor-made active ingredient for atopic skin: I-MODULIA®
Twelve years of research were necessary to develop the first unique and multi-competent biotechnological active ingredient derived from Avène thermal spring water:
Formulated around this patented active ingredient, XeraCalm A.D is an ultra-innovative, ultra-effective and ultra-safe range suitable for the face and body of infants, children and adults. This extraordinary active ingredient acts directly on the elements involved in atopic eczema, and in particular on itching*.
The best of our Laboratory Research
In order to keep only the ingredients that are useful for the skin and to do without any preservatives, our laboratories have developed a process that is one of a kind: Sterile Cosmetics®. This unique technology allows the product to be kept sterile and free of any external contamination throughout its use.
Thus, XeraCalm A.D provides skin prone to atopic eczema with the respect and safety it’s looking for.
When care becomes child's play...
Are you a parent? Is your child reluctant to put on itch cream?
Although the daily application of an emollient care product is the key to soothing the skin, it’s sometimes very difficult to establish this routine with children. That's why our experts have come up with a fun and unique support serviceto help you implement a daily moisturizing routine.
Follow the adventures of Pikédoo, the little character with eczema. Every day for 21 days, his endearing adventures will be told verbally during moisturizing time: just the right amount of time to instil good practices in a fun way—and while spending time together!
The Lipid-Replenishing Balm and Cream are used daily to limit and prevent skin dryness and itching*. In addition, the Soothing Concentrate is applied locally to immediately relieve intense itching*. It’s the SOS product to keep with you! Whether the balm or cream, adapt the texture to your skin type or the season: balm if your skin is very dry, cream when it is less so.
Soothe and relieve your skin quickly with an Avène thermal spring water compress: spray the water onto tissues and leave them on your face for 10 minutes. In case of itching*, regularly apply a soothing concentrate, including on the eyelids if necessary. In case of irritation, use a protective restoreing cream once or twice a day. And as a preventive measure, moisturise and protect your skin with a lipid-replenishing cream or balm at least once a day.
Simple but essential daily gestures limit skin dryness and restore the skin's barrier function. This way, the flare-ups become less frequent. Here is our advice:
Opt for gentle hygiene with a cleansing oil and lukewarm water between 32-34°C, and make sure their shower or bath does not exceed 10 minutes. Moisturise and protect the skin with a lipid-replenishing cream or balm at least once a day, even when the skin condition seems under control.
