Since I started working out daily, I also started washing my face more than just once a day… You know, because sweat is kind of gross. But doing so twice a day started to really dry out my skin and made it very very sensitive. 1 person out of 2 experiences sensitive skin at least once in their life. From babies to the elderly, sensitive skin is a concern and it needs very specific care as well too. I was excited when La Roche-Posay Canada contacted me to try out their newest Toleriane Caring Wash and Toleriane Sensitive specially formulated for sensitive skin. And I really hoped that it would provide me with the gentle care my skin needed. Made with minimal ingredients and thermal spring water, Toleriane Sensitive provides both moisture and protection for the skin that can create sensitivity over time.
While my body got stronger my skin remained sensitive so I decided to embrace my sensitivity and give Toleriane Sensitive a try. I started using it last week after my workouts and the breakouts that I had along my chin went away along with some of the dryness, so I love this wash and cream so far, its soft and smooth when I use it. It is also fragrance, alcohol and paraben free and feels super gentle on my skin. It is also the first prebiotic moisturizer for the face available in Canada and that’s important because we need to nourish both the skin barrier and its microbiome. A couple of my friends who also have sensitive skin swear by the La Roche-Posay products and I use quite a bit of it on Magnus who is my one baby with eczema, and have been using it with Henrik too for quite a while!
So what does my post workout routine consist of? Make a smoothie, wash my face, moisturize, drink the smoothie…done.
Do any of you find that your face is more sensitive when you work out? Or from frequent washing?? What are your tips? #LRPartner #embraceyoursensitivity #SensitiveSkinSquad
