What makes Lipikar perfect for all skin types?
Lipikar will transform the lives of adults, children and babies with very dry skin prone to irritation and eczema. Completely hypoallergenic and fragrance free, the gentle formula is perfect for all skin types, even the most sensitive. Upon application, each product in the Lipikar range soothes and treats extremely dry skin, itchiness and discomfort for up to 48 hours.
What’s the secret behind this exceptional efficacy? Shea butter, a natural active agent that hydrates, soothes and nourishes the skin. Especially rich in fatty acids, shea butter contains antioxidants, allantoin and three essential vitamins for healthy skin. Vitamin A is known for its antioxidant action, vitamin D for its ability to protect and prevent skin conditions and vitamin E for its regenerative and healing properties. Lipikar products contain up to 20% shea butter to provide better relief for delicate and eczema-prone skin.
For the past 40 years, LaRoche-Posay has been committed to providing a better life for sensitive skin. All our 100% hypoallergenic products are tested for their efficacy and high tolerance on the most sensitive, eczema-prone skin.
What makes dry skin different from eczema and dermatitis?
It isn’t always easy to understand the differences between dry skin, eczema and dermatitis. Here are some insights into what may be affecting your skin.
Dry skin is dull, rough, inflamed, with or without redness. It can tingle, pull, itch and become flaky. These signs point to a lack of lipids, which are natural fats, because the hydrolipidic film does not produce enough sebum, a natural lubricant.
Contact dermatitis causes localized patches of dry skin with redness and itchiness brought about by the skin’s reaction to an irritant or allergen, like a chemical agent, detergent, nickel or fragrance.
Eczema is irritated, reddened skin on the face or body that itches, scabs, cracks and blisters. This type of condition, which makes skin prone to allergic reactions, is very common, especially in newborns. Learn more about chronic and acute eczema.
How can I prevent breakouts and eczema?
You can prevent breakouts and eczema flare-ups! The triggering and aggravating factors vary from one person to the next, but this expert advice will help you slow the appearance of your skin symptoms.
First, find ways to manage your stress, for example by doing yoga, meditating, going on a walk or choosing a more vigorous type of exercise. Take care of your skin by adopting a daily routine and choosing skincare products formulated for dry, irritated and eczema-prone skin. Finally, restorative sleep will help your skin to repair itself day after day.
In addition to those good habits, choose 100% hypoallergenic products known for their anti-itch and anti-relapse action to support your skin’s microbiome. Here are three products in the Lipikar range you can use daily for quick relief that lasts.
