About Face: Uriage Bariéderm CICADaily Gel Cream

There’s a new category in skin care called weakened skin. Not to be confused with not working out at the gym or a lack of muscles, this skin type is real and an equal opportunist. Dry, oily, sensitive, combination and any other skin type can have it and can correct it, too, with regular use of products like Uriage Bariéderm CICADaily Gel Cream.

That’s because a weakening in your skin’s barrier can happen to anyone. Drank too many beers during the pandemic and didn’t get enough zzzzs? Your skin can be impacted. Spend too much time outdoors in highly polluted areas or maybe your workplace’s mask-wearing routine has reduced your skin’s ability to breath? Yup, that can do it too.

Rich with ingredients such as centella asiatica, hyaluronic acids and vitamin B5, Uriage Bariéderm CICADaily Gel Cream’s formula can fix every symptom by moisturizing, regenerating and increasing your skin’s radiance. An inclusion of copper-zinc works hard to soothe and balance, while the brand’s 10.5 per cent Thermal-Biotic Complex of eponymous thermal water and prebiotic inulin work to rebalance the epidermis’ cutaneous and microbial barriers. Use it twice a day, once in the morning and again before bed at night and all you’ll have to think about is when to hit the gym next. Because, you know, it’s one thing to have weakened skin, but…
