It’s a classic beauty conundrum: those with sensitive/reactive skin suffer from the same issues—wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and a loss of elasticity—as the normal-complected. Yet the vast majority of anti-aging products out there contain ingredients that will irritate delicate skins, in turn exacerbating the very problems they’re supposed to counteract and speeding the aging process. Enter La Roche-Posay
, a no-nonsense, no-frills, no-unnecessary ingredients skin care line from Europe. Through research and clinical trials, La Roche-Posay has pioneered smart, accessible solutions for the prevention and correction of aging. The brand’s ability to deliver on its anti-aging promises, even for the most sensitive complexions, has enabled it to withstand the test of time while garnering the advocacy of more than 25,000 dermatologists around the globe. Its highly innovative products are developed according to the most stringent guidelines, avoiding irritants and fillers.
Fighting the signs of aging by addressing micro-inflammation
Recently, La Roche-Posay uncovered a dermatological breakthrough: sensitive skin ages at a more rapid pace than normal skin. This is due to micro-inflammation, which, while most prevalent in sensitive skin, affects everyone. Micro-inflammation fuels the breakdown of collagen and elastin, contributing to visible signs of aging. Currently, La Roche Posay Redermic +
is the only product on the market that specifically targets this aging trigger. It’s formulated with an innovative blend of ingredients, including madecassoside and neurosensine, to create a firmer, more youthful complexion. The perfect complement to Redermic +? Redermic + Eyes, a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free eye treatment that’s safe for sensitive eyes and clinically proven to dramatically reduce wrinkles and improve firmness within six months.
Brown spots and other discoloration contribute to an aged look just as much as wrinkles and fine lines. However, hydroquinone—one of the most commonly used ingredients for evening out one’s skin tone—is not suitable for sensitive skin. La Roche-Posay Mela D Serum is formulated with kojic and glycolic acids instead, and it effectively creates a smooth, radiant, even complexion. Plus, it’s fragrance-free and absorbs quickly and completely.
One of the most vital steps to take in the battle to retain healthy, youthful skin? Committing to effective sun protection. Anthelios SX, one of La Roche-Posay’s signature offerings, boasts the first sunscreen formulation approved by the FDA for both short and long UVA and UVB rays. What’s more, it’s non-comedogenic, oil-free and fragrance-free, thus ideal for any skin type.
