Do you have sensitive, dry or dehydrated skin, or skin that is easily irritated by external agents? You're at the right place! Dr Althea has created this intensive soothing cream, which contains the best cocktail of ingredients that we've ever seen to soften and soothe sensitive and irritated skin.
You'll notice its light blue colour; it gets it from guaiazulene, a naturally blue ingredient derived from chamomile with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can soothe redness caused by acne. It's free from artificial colouring — it's colour is natural! Its list of ingredients also includes hyaluronic acid to deeply nourish the skin and preserve that hydration throughout the day; panthenol (or pro-vitamin B5), a multi-purpose ingredient that soothes and restores the skin, while protecting its barrier function; squalane, a natural antioxidant that promotes the production of collagen to prevent and minimise expression lines, as well as to hydrate and soothe the skin; corallina officinalis extracts, a red algae that grows on the coast of Ireland and the United Kingdom that helps remove dead cells to brighten the skin; and eggplant from Southeast asia, which has antioxidants and astringent properties. Apart from reducing swelling and alleviating redness and pimples, it leaves the skin visibly more hydrated, soft and silky. You'll love it if you have sensitive, dry, very dehydrated or acne-prone skin and are looking for a cream to combine with other treatments, but it's actually suitable for any type of skin in need of an extra dose of hydration once a week.
