Fussy skin no more: Try this two-step routine for calmer skin for the whole family!
If you’re anything like us, the pandemic has greatly upped your obsession with staying clean. That means frequent hand washing (necessary!) and scrubbing ourselves down in the shower. Focusing on hygiene is all well and good, but when you have sensitive skin, frequent washes can strip the skin of essential moisture. That’s where dryness, itchiness and possible eczema flare-ups may come in. For the skin health of those with sensitivity, we partnered with Bioderma to bring you a two-step solution for your fussy skin woes.
Stress-free skincare for the face and body
Bioderma’s Atoderm line is a godsend when members of the fam have sensitive, eczema-prone skin. Formulated without parabens, alcohol, soap or preservatives, the products are suitable for everyone from infants to Mum and Dad. Better yet, it’s a ridiculously easy cleanse-and-moisturise routine. This two-step fix could even be used on your face if you wish!
Step 1: Atoderm Huile de douche/ Anti-irritation cleansing oil
Despite what the name suggests, this cleanser has zero oiliness. Instead, it features a gel-like texture that turns into an airy foam upon contact with water, washing off easily. It’s not just the gentleness of the foam that makes it suitable for sensitive skin, though. Bioderma boasts a patented Skin Barrier Therapy formula that prevents S.aureus bacteria (i.e. microscopic nasties that make you itch) from adhering to the skin – meaning a lower chance of tightness or irritation after! And if Singapore’s warmer weather causes skin dryness or sensitivity for your kids, try this to stop them from scratching away (which may aggravate the situation).
Step 2: Atoderm PP Baume/ Ultra-nourishing moisturiser
Truly, is there anything better than the feeling of clean, hydrated skin? After stepping out of the shower, quench your skin with this moisturiser, which is non-sticky and absorbs quickly. It’s gentle enough for the kiddos, too! Plus, it features Vitamin PP (commonly known as niacinamide), an ingredient that stimulates the production of ceramides to lock in moisture for up to 24 hours. That’s goodbye to rough, dry, eczema-prone skin from top to toe! Now your skin’s feeling nice and happy, all that’s left to do is curl up on the couch with Netflix and wine for the rest of the night… after putting the kids to bed, of course.
