A hot shower can be incredibly soothing for the mind and soul… but not so much for the body. In fact, you may find your skin feeling itchier after a shower. When you wash away dirt and dead skin cells, you also remove the skin’s natural oils that keep it hydrated. And as you get older, the skin slowly loses its ability to produce these protective oils. When that happens, your skin starts to feel dry and itchy.
Alleviate the Itch, Soothe Dry Skin
French skincare expert Bioderma offers deep hydration for the skin right from the shower with its Atoderm Huile de douche (Anti-Irritation Cleansing Oil). This shower oil works to address very dry, irritated and eczema-prone skin. It is developed to provide up to 24-hour hydration, so the skin feels comfortable right after your shower.
What sets it apart: The Bioderma Anti-Irritation Cleansing Oil lowers the likelihood of your skin getting itchy with a patented Skin Barrier Therapy technology that helps prevent skin-irritating bacteria from sticking to your skin. The moisturising body wash has vitamin PP to help stimulate ceramide production to strengthen the skin barrier, which helps to lock in moisture and keep skin soft and supple.
Not just a product to keep the skin moisturised, this body cleansing oil is also created to make bathtime enjoyable. Although it is a cleansing oil, it has a light, gel-like texture that transforms into a fine lather when massaged over wet skin. The moisturising body wash washes off easily without leaving any sticky or greasy residue. Its light, soothing scent from an allergen-free fragrance leaves a clean-skin scent on your skin.
Further Reduce Itch and Dryness
Once you get on with your day, your skin is exposed to more drying environments, such as air-conditioned rooms. So reach for Bioderma’s Atoderm PP Baume (Ultra-nourishing Balm) after your shower.
This lightweight lotion is one heavyweight moisturiser. It protects healthy bacteria on the skin, so the skin is less likely to dry out. It helps to stimulate ceramide production to help lock in moisture. And like a veil of moisture, it calms irritated, itchy or eczema-prone skin from the very first application.
The Bioderma Atoderm Huile de douche is priced at $18.90 (limited edition – 200 ml); $39.90 (1 litre), and Atoderm PP Baume, $25.90 (200 ml); $49.90 (500 ml), and available at Guardian Health & Beauty, LazMall Official Store, Robinsons, Shopee Mall Official Store, Unity, Watsons and Welcia-BHG stores.
