Review: La Roche-Posay Sunscreen
Oh la la, Bonjour mes belles! I’m home from my jet-setting adventures through France and its surrounding countries and can say that the international trend report is in: pale is beautiful.
Take one step into the Louvre museum in Paris and you’ll see immediately that painters for centuries, the likes of Botticelli and DaVinci, have celebrated the luminosity of healthy, glowing, and unblemished skin. It’s a rather…er…timeless look, if you will.
What else is in vogue in France? Innovation in science to create products for optimal skin care. This means remedial formulas created with natural, medical-grade ingredients which penetrate the pores and layers of our skin more effectively. These deeper layers are precisely where we may be harboring the foundations for acne, wrinkles, graying and dull skin, and other annoying skin detriments, so reaching them is crucial to changing to the texture or general condition of our skin. Vive la science!
There are pharmacies on every corner in France, indicated by iconic glowing neon-green crosses, where pharmacists assist the French in obtaining prescriptions, medications, and beauty products. The French know that health and beauty go together like baguettes and brie. When it comes to protection from sun damage, each and every pharmacist in France, from the beaches of St. Tropez to the Eiffel Tower, will prescribe the exact same tried and true line: La Roche-Posay.
Clinically speaking, this French favorite boasts a striking main ingredient, their unique selenium-rich Thermal Spring Water, which comes from the heart of a small village in central France called La Roche Posay. Loaded with minerals, this sunscreen is a tireless protective force against the beating rays of the summer sun, with anti-aging, soothing properties for anti-inflammatory cellular preservation.
My favorite thing about this product is that it is hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin. As an acne-prone individual in my early twenties, I can personally attest that this is the first sun block product which has not led to facial breakouts. Stop by Timeless Skin Solutions and we’ll help you choose the La Roche-Posay sunscreen that’s right for you.
The only other French beauty tip I can prescribe you is a nightly glass of red wine from la Loire valley, sipped slowly, for anti-oxidants (doctor’s orders!) and you, too, can be beautiful just like zee French.
