Avene Host A Live Q&A On SkinStore

We are delighted to have Avene takeover a recent Live Facebook Q&A session on our SkinStore page, which revealed all the skin care essentials about the brand.

Avene’s award-winning skin care range offers formulas for just about every skin concern out there.

The French skin care line is notorious for its unique ingredients and is used by Hollywood celebrities such as Kristin Cavallari, who revealed Avene as one of her favorite anti-aging products!

Take a read below to find out all of your questions and concerns, now answered:

Question: What makes Avene sunscreen better than other suncreens?
Answer:

What makes our sunscreens so great is that we use Avene Thermal Water to soothe and hydrate the skin along with a powerful antioxidant to protect the skin from free radical damage with a very high protection of SPF 50+.

Question: What SPF do you recommend for fair skin?
Answer:

I would definitely suggest our Mineral face  SPF 50+.

Question: What's the difference between mineral sunscreen and regular sunscreen?
Answer:

Mineral sunblock uses titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to physically block the UV rays, whereas regular sunscreen uses chemical ingredients to protect your skin from the UV rays. With Avene sun care products we have a mineral collection for very sensitive skin and a classic collection for normal skin.

Question: I'm looking for ways to keep my skin hydrated underneath my makeup. What product is great for retaining moisture and gives high sun protection with makeup?
Answer:

I would recommend our Classic SPF 50 face lotion. It will hydrate your skin for up to 24 hours.

Question: What makes your sunscreen a mineral sunscreen what do you guys use for ingredients?
Answer:

We use Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to block the sun’s UV rays. Great ingredients for sensitive skin.

Question: Broad-spectrum sunscreens protect against both UVA and UVB rays. What is the difference between the rays?
Answer:

UVA rays cause aging and allergies in the skin, whereas UVB rays cause the burning/ bronzing, and skin cancer.

Question: What is good to use to add hydration to combo/acne prone skin? My cheeks get very dry also.
Answer:

I would recommend our Hydrance Serum under your moisturizer to give the skin an extra boost of hydration.

Question: Does this product work well with oily skin?
Answer:

The Complexion Correcting Shield is oil free and non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic. It will not clog your pores and will leave the skin with a satin finish.

Answer:

For sensitive skin I always suggest the Avene Thermal Water. It’s a must have to soothe and hydrate the skin.

Question: I love Avene. Does a complexion correcting shield help protect sensitive skin?
Answer:

The complexion correcting shield will help protect sensitive skin from sun damage.

Question: Is this OK to use on combination dry skin?
Answer:

The Complexion Correcting Shield will give the skin all day moisture without leaving the skin shiny. A perfect product to balance combination skin.

Question: What products will help with redness?
Answer:

You will definitely want to use our Avene Thermal Water and our Anti-Rougeurs range.

Question: Which face sunscreen would you recommend for someone with sensitive skin that is prone to redness?

I would definitely suggest you use our Mineral face lotion with SPF 50! Apply in the morning under your makeup.

Question: I've had 12 skin cancer surgeries ALL on the fronts of my legs. Aside from sunscreen, any other sun safety tips?
Answer:

I would definitely suggest reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours and to go to the dermatologist frequently for testing.

Question: What are some of Eau Thermale Avène key ingredients that you are proud to use in your line?
Answer:

I’m very proud of the Thermal Spring Water as a key ingredient. Its unique composition is clinically proved to reduce irritation. I also love our vitamin a (Retinaldehyde) we use it in our anti-aging products.

Question: I have read before advantages of "sterile products". What are Sterile Cosmetics? Do you use any preservatives at all?
Answer:

In our sterile cosmetics we use no preservatives as the packing keeps the formulation sterile. These are amazing products for very sensitive skins.

Question: If I only do one product for my skin, which do you suggest for the best results without requiring too much time?
Answer:

I would suggest our Complexion Correcting Shield as it’s a tinted moisturizer and corrective serum all in one. One and done!

Question: What product will eliminate or decrease my dark under eye circles?
Answer:

You will definitely want to use the Avene Physiolift Eye. It will not only fight dark circles it will also help with fine lines.

Question: Can you wear this product under makeup? I love that it is for sensitive skin!
Answer:

The Avene Complexion Correcting Shield is not only your makeup but your moisturizer and corrective serum all in one. No need to wear makeup as it will give you a medium to full finish.

Question: If you could only pick three products from the Avene line for daily use which three would it be?
Answer:

I would choose the Avene Thermal Spring Water, the Complexion Correcting Shield, and Physiolift Night Balm.

Question: Is this a good product for aging and acne-prone skin, due to hormonal breakouts?
Answer:

The Complexion Correcting Shield is great for anti-aging as it has SPF and Vitamin C and E.

Question: What would you recommend me if I have an acne prone skin for the summer? I'm always scared to use moisturiser to not clog the pores even more.
Answer:

Avene has the perfect product for you! It would be our Cleanance Expert. Use it morning and night all over the face as a moisturizer. It is very lightweight and will help control oil and fight breakouts. All Avene products are non-comedogenic. They will not clog your pores.

Question: I just turned 50 and have been blessed with normal skin but the fine lines are driving me crazy and I won't do any surgery, botox, etc. What is the best option for me?
Answer:

Congratulations on such a milestone! I would suggest the Avene Physiolift range to combat lines and wrinkles and firm the skin.

Question: What are some new Eau Thermale Avène products on the horizon?
Answer:

We do have some exciting new launches in the fall. Can’t say too much just that they are amazing.

Question: Do you test your products on animals?
Answer:

Animal testing is banned in Europe, and since Avene is a French brand we do no animal testing! Cruelty-free!

Question: What's Avene's best-seller?
Answer:

Our top seller would have to be our Thermal Spring Water. It’s the best product to soothe and hydrate the skin.
