SUMMER SKIN CARE: La Roche-Posay

IMG_8793

La Roche-Posay is the number 1 Dermatologist recommended sunscreen brand in Canada. We have been using La Roche-Posay products for many years and their sunscreens are one of our favourite brands that we have ever used. We are both extremely picky when it comes to SPF and we have high expectations of what we want. What we like and what we don’t. We know that we don’t like thick, heavy, greasy, white residue left on the skin like some SPF’s. No one wants to feel that, especially on the face.

La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios SPF 60 Ultra Fluid Lotion for the face has been a favourite for many reasons. It’s such a light fluid formula that you don’t even know it’s on the skin because it absorbs instantly and completely. It’s a matte finish, fragrance free, water resistant and paraben free. I wear it daily. Every single day of the year. Yes, even on the cloudy days.

We are all very aware by now that wearing SPF during the hot summer days is extremely important to protect your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. But what some people don’t seem to realize is that it is just as important to protect your skin year round from the environmental factors such as air pollution and the ozone layer. Doing so prevents those unattractive browns spots aka age spots, skin blotchiness, redness and premature aging in general. Let’s not forget about skin cancer. The earlier you start wearing sunscreen the better your skin will look when you’re older.

NEW ULTRA-FLUID SPF 50 LOTION FOR BODY
We were thanking the SPF gods for this gem of a product that La Roche-Posay recently launched. It’s like our beloved LRP fluid SPF 60 for the face but for the body! It has all of the same benefits, ultra light fluid that quickly absorbs, is fragrance free, water resistant and paraben free. It literally feels like nothing on your skin. It has quickly become our numero uno body SPF!

NEW LIPIKAR LAIT ($19/200ml, $25/400ml)

In addition to being completely paraben and fragrance free, Lipikar Lait contains:

66% soothing Thermal Spring Water (this product contains the highest concentration of thermal spring water than any other product from La Roche-Posay!)
10% nourishing Shea Butter (sourced in Burkina Faso)
3% repairing Cold Cream
Anti-inflammatory Niacinamide

What we love most about the new Lipikar Lait is that the formula is 100% safe for the whole family – babies, children, adults and seniors. It is sensitive enough for all skin types. I have been wearing the Lipikar Lait lotion for the past two weeks and absolutely love it. It’s a lightweight, non-greasy lotion that is perfect for everyday wear.

What La Roche-Posay product are you lovin’ this Summer?!
