Avene Rich Compensating Cream is a nourishing, hydrating and protective facial skin treatment. This plant-based moisturizer soothes skin while protecting it from damaging free radicals and enhancing its natural defenses for vibrant, youthful skin.
The cream is ideal for dry or very dry skin, and has been dermatologist-tested for safety and tolerance on very sensitive skin. It is hypoallergenic, paraben-free and non-comedogenic (won't clog pores or cause blemishes).
Soft, Smooth & Sensitive
As most people know, the skin is the body's largest organ. Providing protection for all internal body parts, it can also be argued that it is among the most important. Skin that is dry easily becomes irritated and damaged; a condition which is not only uncomfortable and unsightly, but also extremely vulnerable to invading bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Dry, damaged skin is further complicated when the skin is very sensitive to the majority of skin-care treatments that would otherwise offer some protection and promote rapid healing. In highly reactive skin, these products often make the situation worse.
Avene Rich Compensating Cream offers a solution to both problems; proven to be well-tolerated by sensitive skin, this rich, silky, luxurious cream provides instant relief from the irritation associated with parched skin while providing multiple long-term benefits:
Benefits from the cream continue to improve as the treatment is used over time. This is in part because the product protects the skin from free radicals --- which contribute greatly to skin aging --- and partly because the cream actually enhances the skin's hydrolipic barrier, which traps moisture in while keeping bacteria, dirt and other impurities out.
Avene Rich Compensating Cream is rich in Avene Thermal Spring Water, which has been clinically proven in numerous studies to aid skin healing while promoting smooth, supple, blemish-free skin.
Directions for Use
Avene Rich Compensating Cream should be used at least once a day; twice a day --- morning and evening before bed --- is ideal.
Skin should be thoroughly cleansed prior to using Avene Rich Compensating Cream. See the bottom of this article for a list of gentle cleansers designed for sensitive skin if you're having difficulty finding a suitable product.
Apply Avene Rich Compensating Cream to the face and neck using fingertips, a cotton pad, washcloth or similar soft material. Gently rub the cream into the skin, paying particular attention to any particularly dry or irritated spots, until the cream has been mostly absorbed.
Additional skin treatments can be applied after Avene Rich Compensating Cream if desired.
Check with a doctor before using Avene Rich Compensating Cream if also using a medicated cream or lotion on the same area. Dangerous interactions are exceedingly unlikely, but Avene Rich Compensating Cream may interfere with proper absorption of the medication.
