Choosing the right skincare product
What is the difference between BB and CC cream?
Apart from their two-letter names, these two new-generation cosmetics have one aspect in common: offering multifunctional action with a single application. More particularly, they even out the skin's complexion while taking care of the skin and protecting it against UV rays.
1st reflex: favouring all-in-one cosmetics
CC or "Complete Correction" creams are their successors. Created in Asia, this new-generation skincare product is both more advanced and more specific. As such, CC creams target a particular problem: ROSALIAC CC Cream, for example, is enriched with Ambophenol, an active agent known for its effectiveness in fighting redness. It also provides better coverage, thereby concealing redness.
The importance of a simple routine
Skincare and make-up products: be careful of repeated applications
This is true even before applying make-up, in particular foundation to hide minor skin imperfections. It does not pose a problem for most skin types. For sensitive skin, however, repeated applications increase the risk of signs of skin reactivity.
2nd reflex: limiting the amount of cosmetics used
This is why a CC cream, such as ROSALIAC CC Cream, is ideal for sensitive skin: it combines several actions in a single product, thereby simplifying the daily routine.
When sun and sensitive skin do not mix well
The appearance and aggravation of redness
Over one in five cases concern permanent redness caused by years of sun exposure. In order to avoid the onset of new redness, in addition to the aggravation of already visible colour changes, effective protection is essential.

3rd reflex: gentle protection
The face and lower neckline will be protected throughout the day by ROSALIAC CC Cream, for which the formulators of La Roche-Posay Laboratories achieved a major feat: by adding SPF 30, a highly protective filter for a daily skincare product, without affecting its cosmetic properties, the product provides sensitive skin with protection able to prevent the aggravation and reappearance of new signs of redness.
Daily gestures to soothe sensitive skin
Beautiful skin, even when bare
For a healthier looking skin which remains impervious to daily stress, camouflage is not enough. A longer-term solution to these signs of sensitivity is necessary.
4th reflex: avoid stimulants
As a result, the skin becomes more fragile. As such, it is also more reactive. Alcohol is at the top of the list of products to be avoided, if not banished. Not only does it dehydrate the skin, but its vasodilator effect can also make redness more visible on the skin surface. As such, it can visibly alter the quality of the skin.
Did you know?
When skin is sensitive, it shows! That is the conclusion of a study conducted by La Roche-Posay laboratories on the relationship between skin sensitivity and the appearance of redness. Regardless of age, sensitive skin is characterised by a stronger tendency to redness than normal skin. This tendency endures over time.
