Face creams and moisturisers are essential for every skincare routine and to maintain skin health. Using a facial moisturiser is a crucial step in skincare routines to utilise the benefits of efficacious skin ingredients to help hydrate and strengthen the skin. La Roche Posay's range of face moisturisers has been developed by dermatologists to deliver visibly-healthier skin, discover the ideal facial moisturiser for you to visibly improve your complexion and support your sensitive skin concerns.
Face moisturisers work to support the skin barrier which can block any potential irritants from entering the skin and helps build tolerance against harmful environmental aggressors. A healthy skin barrier acts as a shield for the skin and can help minimise concerns like trans-epidermal water loss, unwanted blemishes or heightened sensitivity. It is crucial to choose a face moisturiser that is formulated with hydrating properties while enhancing the skin's ability to retain moisture within the skin cells.
A face moisturiser should be selected to address specific skin types and skin concerns. If you have an oily skin type that is prone to acne, the Effaclar Matte Anti-Acne Moisturiser 40ml is an oil-regulating mat finish moisturiser that helps reduce shine due to excess oil production. While all of the La Roche Posay face creams deliver hydration, those with particularly dry skin types should consider the Toleriane Dermallergo Hydrating Moisturiser for improved moisture and reduced skin irritation or itchiness. For best results, face creams should always be chosen based on the skin type and skin concern for that person.

All La Roche Posay’s moisturisers are formulated for sensitive skin with gentle yet potent ingredients. However, if looking for specific recommendations, the Cicaplast, Lipikar and the Toleriane ranges offer deep hydration and are delicate on the skin to support skin sensitivity.
