The beloved product from Avène, Cicalfate Cream, has been updated and brought to this century by adding the new patented active ingredient C+ Restore™. Therefore, the new Cicalfate formula is now even more soothing and repairing. Given that it now contains an extract from Aqua dolomiae, the healing process is increased by 96%. Keep reading this post if you wish to discover in what ways you can use the star product from Avène!
After minor cuts and stitches
Getting minor cuts and stitches is never fun. Afterward, it’s highly important to take care of the wound in order to ensure that it will heal properly and try to reduce the chance of having permanent scars or marks. Avène Cicalfate+, thanks to its formula with copper and zinc, is able to reduce the healing time and to improve the skin over the healing process. Therefore, using this product reduces the risk of developing long-term marks on your skin.
Firstly, try to avoid getting sunburns, ever. That being said, we all have gotten minor sunburns on difficult-to-reach areas even though we tried really hard to cover the entire skin. Consequently, if you are unable to avoid getting a sunburn this is the answer! Cicalfate+ helps to reduce redness and helps the skin to recover faster and better, hence reducing the time it takes to heal and improving the way you recover.
The diaper area
Babies’ bums are never easy to deal with, especially when they have new food or are sick. Take it from me, I really know what you’re going through and I hope you’re feeling my virtual hug right now. However, Cicalfate+ has saved me several times over the last year and I really can’t recommend it enough. It usually takes just one application to start reducing symptoms like redness and minor lesions and over 24h they’re usually gone. This is a true lifesaver.
If you have chaffing skin, it’s also good that you apply this cream over the affected areas. Since it’s not drying, the formula soothes the skin and helps to recover the skin barrier as quickly as you can say “hydration!”
Whether you’ve overdone your acid toning or your skin is just prone to having a damaged skin barrier, this is one of the staples to have in hand at all times. Celebrated all over skincare lovers’ Facebook groups and Instagram, this formula helps to quickly repair the moisture barrier and to ensure your skin stops feeling so uncomfortable.
