Favorite New Skin Care Line: Avene.
Recently, I have reading been reading a lot about the French skincare line Avene. Then low and behold, a bottle of the Avene water mist showed up on my desk at work. At first, I was really freaked out because I did not remember ordering any Avene products, but then realized that Laura was a few steps ahead of me and brought this kind treat back for me from her recent visit to France. Then, I was at my dermatologist office last week, Dr. Elizabeth Rostan, and she had the entire line in her office. Dr. Rostan was so impressed by the new line than she took a trip to France last weekend to go to the Avene plant to learn more about the products. Now if anyone knows Dr. Rostan and how hard she works, the fact that she took time off to go to France – even though it was work related, says A LOT. My favorite products are the Cicalfate Restorative Creme, which is heavier and I use it at night. Also, the Tolerance Extreme Creme is great for sensitive skin during the day. And last but certainly not least, The Redness Relief Soothing Cream SPF 25. I hate putting on sunscreen everyday. Dr. Rostan would cringe to hear that, but it is true. Even the best everyday sunscreens still smell and feel weird, but I still wear it because you’d be a fool not to. So, when I got the Redness Relief Soothing Cream SPF 25, I was thrilled because there is a slight green tinge to the product which of course goes on clear, but helps to combat broken capillaries- AND – it is such a lightweight cream that finally I am thrilled to wear sunscreen because the product neither smells nor feels like sunscreen, but still works. However, I would recommend you call and have Dr. Rostan or Meredith, the lovely facialist, help you figure out what products best suit your skin.
