pollution alert

Sore throat, itchy eyes, breathing difficulties...
And what if your skin were subject to the same irritation?

Properly cleansing your skin helps to protect it from pollution

Every day, impurities build up on the surface of the epidermis and alter the quality of the skin on the face, neck and lower neckline. These impurities include pollutants that damage the skin, weaken it and increase its sensitivity. Gentle deep cleansing on a daily basis is necessary to preserve not just the skin but also the cutaneous barrier that protects the epidermis from external attacks.

Cleansing the skin to remove impurities from pollution

Morning and evening, the skin must be cleansed to get rid of impurities that stick to it: sweat, tobacco, traces of make-up or even dust. In addition to these impurities, there is atmospheric pollution and pollutants. Ozone and fine particles, such as microscopic PM2.5, stick to the skin, become lodged in the pores and damage the cutaneous barrier. The result: The sebum is oxidized, the complexion becomes duller and yellowish.

La Roche-Posay Micellar Water: efficacy with optimal tolerance

Tap water is not sufficient to deeply cleanse the skin. Due to its limescale content, it can even be another source of irritation for already sensitive skin. In order to combine effectiveness, gentleness and high tolerance, La Roche-Posay has formulated a Micellar Water that respects the epidermis and the cutaneous barrier.

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water can remove impurities without warming up or irritating the skin. It is available in 3 different textures, all with the same formula and offering the same safety and efficacy:

  • The micellar water purifies and protects the skin in a single step. And you do not even need to rinse.
  • The micellar jelly slides on to the skin for gentle cleansing without rubbing or rinsing.
  • The micellar mousse removes impurities while limiting friction for gentle cleansing.
