How to properly apply your lipid-replenishing emollient treatment?

  • Once or twice a day with clean hands, and more often if your skin itches.
  • After each shower, to restore the protective hydrolipidic film and prevent itching sensations. The product should preferably be applied to slightly damp skin.
  • Using both hands for smooth spreading. Spread the product on your hands, then gently help it penetrate into the skin with small, slow, circular movements.
  • Apply a fine layer. Layers that are too thick may cause irritation and prickling.

Do you have a doubt, a question?

We are always here for you

How do I know when to use the lipid-replenishing balm, the lipid-replenishing cream or the soothing concentrate?

The lipid-replenishing Balm and Cream can be used every day to limit and prevent skin dryness and itching*. In addition, the Soothing Concentrate can be applied locally to immediately soothe intense itching*. It is the SOS product to keep close-by! Whether the balm or the cream, choose the texture that suits your skin type or the season: the balm if your skin is very dry, and the cream when it is less dry.

How can I soothe facial eczema?

Rapidly soothe and bring relief to your skin with a compress sprayed with Avène Thermal Spring Water: spray the water on tissues and let them sit for 10 minutes on your face. If you itch*, regularly apply the XeraCalm A.D soothing concentrate, including on your eyelids if needed. In the event of irritation, also use the Cicalfate Repairing protective cream once or twice a day. Still as prevention, hydrate and protect your skin with the XeraCalm A.D lipid-replenishing balm or cream at least once a day.

How can I delay my child’s eczema flare-ups?

Simple, but essential daily gestures reduce skin dryness and restore the skin’s barrier function. Flare-ups are farther and farther apart. A few tips:
Gentle hygiene is preferable, using the XeraCalm A.D lipid-replenishing cleansing oil and warm water (between 32° and 34°C) in a shower or a bath for no more than 10 minutes. Hydrate and protect the child’s skin with a lipid-replenishing balm or cream at least once a day, even when the skin looks good to you.
