Thank you for joining us during the Facebook Live Event! For those who missed it, you can watch the video here!

Avène’s Regional Trainer for Western Canada, Fabiola, answered some of the questions we weren’t able to get to during the Facebook Live Event. Please see her answers below. Please note that we are not able to diagnose or provide specific clinical answers through a Facebook Live event, but do not hesitate to ask these questions to your doctor.

I’m wondering, can kids use the Thermal Spring Water spray ? Yes. Newborns and up!
I wondered what the Tolerance line was about. Is it closest to our skins make up then? Correct, using naturally based ingredients, we mimic the skins fundamental composition in a texture that mimics our epidermis.
What products would you recommend for aging and acne prone skin? Triacneal Expert is made for adult acne, hormonal or not, and even acne scars. Powerful retinaldehyde will offer anti-age, anti-scar and anti-hyper pigmentation benefits. The unique anti-acne molecule will kill acne bacteria and reduce inflammation when activated and also offers natural exfoliation derived from papaya but as efficient as glycolic acid. Safe for sensitive skin and for night time use only. Apply to the whole face. Suggested cleanser: Cleanance Gel.
I have combination skin, oily t-zone, dry cheeks and prone to break outs (partially hormone related). Can you recommend a good day cream, and night cleansing routine?Cleanse with Cleanance Gel, Day Cream Cleanance Expert and Night Cream Triacneal Expert on the whole face. Use serum underneath day and night cream  – new Hydrance Serum. Include Avène Thermal Spring Water before and after cream application.
Are the anti-age items discussed ok for sensitive or reactive skin? Yes, with very sensitive skin it is advised to begin our anti-age use every other day until the cells have become accustomed to the actives. Afterwards increase to daily use. For more details answers please specify product of interest.
My atopic scalp is driving me crazy. Can you use these products while on steroids? Avène Thermal Spring Water will reduce itch and inflammation. Xeracalm Cleansing oil will help also. Consulting a physician is advised.
