Everybody should have a break in case of emergency skin care product, and for me it is the la Roche Posay Cicaplast for the face. This stuff really is a wonder product.
While I don’t have extremely sensitive skin, I am an extremely allergic person. I am allergic to so much stuff, medication, seafood, AHAs, PHPs and so much more. The list is endless. I normally don’t mind, as I have learned to stay away from the products, and foods I am allergic to. Howver, as I am constantly trying out new products on my face, being the allergic person that I am, I am bound to have a reaction every so often and that is what happened this week.
I don’t know what it was that caused the reaction, but my skin broke out into thousands of tiny little water blisters all over my face. The pain of it was unreal, not to mention it looks really bad. It really hurt and I felt like absolute rubbish, as I couldn’t wear makeup. I couldn’t put hydrocortisone cream on it,as while it is brilliant for allergic rashes, it can cause damage to the skin on your face as it is so strong.I needed something to help ease the pain and appearance of this reaction and i didn’t have time to wait days and days for it to go down naturally. Bring in the utterly amazing La Roche Posay Cicaplast pro recovery skin care.
Cicaplast helps to speed up the epidermal repair. accelerate the reconstruction of chapped, and irrupted skin,relevies itchiness and tightness, while at the same time protecting your skin. Basically this is a miracle in a tube. I started to have my reaction on Monday and it was at it’s worst on Tuesday and Wednesday. I started applying the Cicaplast a number of times a day from Wednesday and as of today ( Friday) my skin has almost cleared up. Not only that, but it feels incredibly soft.
If you ever have any sort of reaction on your skin, or a really bad dry patch, apply this as many times as you can throughout the day, and it will clear your skin up in no time. I use this every so often as a moisturiser too, to give my skin that baby skin feeling.
It can be bought in chemists nationwide for €12.50 or online here
