The time has come for us who love our bodies to show our skin some extra love and care. I’ve been using La Roche-Posay Lipikar series for years now and it has helped my skin stay more balanced ven during these more challenging months of the year. It’s suitable for every age, therefore it’s the body care series I feel safe to wash my children with, knowing it’s mild and soothing.

My skin is dry and sensitive with tendencies for atopic skin. Lipikar Balm AP+M is intended for sensitive skin, developed to support the achieving of a healthy and balanced skin microbiome. Microbiome is the very important network of bacteria that works to keep our skin in balance. A healthy and balanced microbiome mirrors in comfortable and healthy-looking skin. La Roche-Posay works hard to research the well-being of our skin and implement their findings in their product development.

I’ve always been quite good at taking care of my skin, but I want it to be uncomplicated yet effective. My body care routine includes these two easy steps:

  1. Lipikar Syndet AP+shower gel
  2. Lipikar Baume AP+M balm

The shower gel is a creamy, anti-irritation, anti-scratching cleansing gel that cleanses the skin without irritating it. It feels kind on the skin and doesn’t leave the skin feeling tight. It is fragrance free and suitable even for newborns. This is the only shower gel I let my children use, due to their sensitive and dry skin.

My all time favorite body balm is this La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+M. We use around 6 big bottles a year! It feels riche but doesn’t leave the surface feeling greasy. It calms my skin instantly and makes my skin feel soft and smooth.

If your skin’s microbiome is out of balance, it can often show as dry skin, uncomfort or even atopic skin. Lipikar Baume AP+M helps your skin strengthen and re-build back its own, healthy and natural microbiome.

La Roche-Posay is a pharmacy brand, developed for sensitive skin and recommended by dermatologists around the world. Try it for yourself or your children and hopefully you’ll feel the difference. La Roche-Posay can be purchased in pharmacies click here to get to products!

A day in the sun – My morning routine

Good morning. In this post, I’ll take you through my springtime morning
routine and talk about how it differs from my winter and nighttime routine.

I always start my mornings between 7 and 7.30 by sitting down with a big
cup of coffee while my children have breakfast. After helping them get
ready for school, I check my emails and my to-do list for the day in my
calendar while I eat. Then, it’s time to get ready for the day. I usually
shower in the morning, whereafter I do my skincare and haircare routine. I
always cleanse my skin thoroughly also in the morning to have a clean and
fresh surface to work with when I apply my skincare products. Taking
some time form myself and really go through my routines mindfully, is
one of the benefits I have working from home, that I’m sure many of us
have experienced now during the past year.

During the day, my main focus for my skin is to protect it, retain moisture
and create a nice, radiant complexion. In the evenings, my focus is on
nourishment, repair, strengthen and renewal.
We know that 80% of skin damage is due to solar radiance and pollution.
It creates lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin surface, collagen
degration and hyperpigmentation. That is why I want to emphasize the
importance of using sun protection every day and up the ante for spring and summer when the radiance is higher and stronger.

After cleansing I’m now quite into applying Hylau B5 serum to my skin to
give me that intense moisture I need, especially if I spend more time in the
sun. The serum is a clear gel that’s easy to apply, absorbs quickly into the
skin and makes the skin feel smooth and soft. It’s also repairing and
replumping, which makes it perfect to use for nighttime as well. I love it
when I can use the same serum both day and night. The simpler the better.

When the serum is all absorbed into my skin, I apply the newly launched
La Roche Posay Anthelios age correct cream. It’s La Roche Posays first
hybrid product with the combination of anti-aging day cream combined
with high sun protection, spf 50.  It works to reduce signs of aging in just 4
weeks and improves skin elasticity. I’ve always used day creams with spf
but find that many products seldom have a high enough spf to really make
me feel secure in the sun. This cream feels smooth and goes well under
makeup. It has the benefits of protecting while nourishing and helps fight
the skin from aging.

I love to spend time out in the sun and plan to do so also this summer but
making sure I protect my skin the best I can has been one of the most
important realizations I’ve had when it comes to taking care of my skin.
It’s the most important thing and first step I teach my children when it
comes to skin care. Hoping to give them good knowledge and tools to help
them care for themselves.

Do you find it important to use sun protection every day?
