when moisturizing is no longer enough
Health care providers, manual laborers, hairdressers, bakers, etc. are regularly in contact with solvents, detergents and abrasive soaps. Hands that become too vulnerable can prevent professionals from working.
For demanding hands such as these, with special requirements, moisturizing is not enough. A two-tier action is needed, providing both a protective surface barrier and intense repair.
Opt for a skincare product specifically formulated for professionals
It offers long-term protection lasting up to 2 hours* and has an instant soothing effect from the first application. It sheathes the skin in an "invisible glove" film thanks to its non-greasy, film-forming, non-sticky rapidly absorbed texture resistant to washing and mechanical friction.
Both effective and convenient, CICAPLAST Hands has been tested and approved by the most demanding hands, those of professionals.

Choosing the right gloves
In addition to applying your CICAPLAST Hands cream, it is therefore important that you choose the right gloves for your activity: domestic or professional, medical or industrial protection, contact with tools or chemicals, etc. It is also very important that you change your gloves regularly to ensure you always benefit from optimum protection.
Wear gloves at night
heal and protect
Some treatments, such as acne isotretinoin-type treatment, contain active ingredients that have a drying effect on the skin and can cause severe inflammation.
One such example is cheilitis, which is often observed in subjects taking isotretinoin. Its clinical appearance can range from simple lip desquamation to erosive and fissural inflammation. Lips that have become extremely dry and fragile in this way need a two-tier action, providing both a protective surface barrier and intense long-term repair.
Choose a treatment designed for dry, irritated, chapped lips
The lips feel comfortable for up to 12 hours after application*, even when eating and smiling. Its beveled tip, perfectly adapted to the shape of the lips, allows for an ultra-precise application. Its efficacy has been tested on the lips of volunteers taking isotretinoin.
CICAPLAST Lips is also a multi-purpose product, and can be used on the contour of the mouth, nostrils and philtrum, the small groove found between the upper lip and the bottom of the nostrils.

Beware of climatic factors
In winter, when outside, protect your mouth and nose with a scarf. And when indoors, avoid overheated rooms. In summer, beware of excessive air conditioning. And remember to always apply suitable sun protection against UV rays.
Avoid thermal shocks
If your face feels cold, do not use very hot water to warm yourself up. Even in summer, always use warm water on the skin.
Did you know?
Water dries the skin, especially when it's already damaged and irritated. Make sure your cleansing routine is as gentle as possible. To neutralize hard water, remember to use lipid-enriched cleansing products for both your hands and your face. It is best to avoid leaving your hands or face wet after washing. Rinse carefully to leave no residue then dry thoroughly, but without rubbing to avoid damaging the skin. Simply pat and press with a soft, perfectly dry towel.
