Glass reviews La Roche Posay three-step routine

I HAVE always had fairly sensitive skin and recently had been suffering from a particularly irritating bout of dryness and roughness. To counteract this in the past, I have tried a few different moisturising treatments but was yet to find one that was effective without having to reapply continuously throughout the day. About a month ago, I started a La Roche-Posay three-step regime and I haven’t looked back. As pioneers of affordable, gentle and simple skincare, the fragrance-free French brand La Roche-Posay was recommended to me by my girlfriend who uses their items in her own skincare regime. The brand – which is designed for sensitive skin – specialises in using cutting-edge skincare innovations which are thoroughly tested by dermatolgists.

For the last month, I have started and finished my day by washing my face with the help of the Lipikar Syndet Lipid-Replenishing wash, a product that is designed for face and body, and cleans the skin soothingly, as well as the Toleriane Foaming Gel Cleanser, enriched with Glycerine and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water to instantly soothe and cleanse irritated skin. I would recommend applying these in the shower if it’s a part of your morning or evening routine. Once these have been rinsed off, I then apply the Toleriane Sensitive Creme, which has been the most effective of the three that I have used. It takes anti-inflammatory action to repair and protect the cutaneous barrier and the microbial barrier. It keeps my skin soft and smooth without the need for reapplication.

Designed to tackle a wide range of problem areas, from dryness to redness, this regime is for any male (or female) looking to kick start a skincare routine without the fuss and expense of fancy products. For me, the regime is helping to reduce signs of ageing, a problem that I have been battling with due to lack of sleep, and it also is helping soothe dryness and redness.

As someone who has somewhat neglected skincare in the past, this La Roche-Posay three-step has taught me how easy it can be to implement skincare into my daily routine. If anything, when I ran out and had to wait a week for a restock to arrive, unbeknown to my girlfriend I started using her La Roche-Posay items …
