Changes in temperature or humidity, using soaps with harsh chemicals, and skin diseases are just a few of the numerous causes of dry skin on the face. Skin can become dry if not enough sebum is produced or replaced. In addition to appearing flaky, bumpy, or having red areas, dry skin can also be irritating. If this is the major issue we are having with our skin, using a moisturizer is essential and may be quite beneficial.
The La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm Intensive Repair Moisturizing Cream came to my attention just in time. I received this from the Allure Beauty Box. La Roche-Posay claims that this cream moisturizer has a special prebiotic impact on the skin microbiome and is for dry to extremely dry skin. It has been clinically shown to lessen dry, rough skin and offer everyday comfort.
What is microbiome?
The unseen community of bacteria and other microbes that live on the surface of the skin is known as the skin microbiome. This complex and varied environment is distinctive to each individual, just like our DNA. The importance of taking into account both the skin barrier and the microbiome has been revealed by recent study. A disturbance of the skin’s natural barrier, which can result in overly sensitive skin, may be related to changes in the microbiome.
How can a pre-biotic helps?
Prebiotics are nutrients for bacteria that help to create a healthy environment for the skin microbiome. These are not to be confused with probiotics live bacteria that are used to target the gut microbiome and digestive system.

This cream arrived just when I needed it. Due to the surroundings and the face wash I used, I had dry skin. My skin became inflamed and burnt, which was really noticeable since it become extremely red and flaky. It was quite uncomfortable and annoying. It didn’t feel like it would end. My Allure Beauty Box arrived about the same time my friend advised me to use a quality moisturizer.
I haven’t ever used a La Roche-Posay moisturizer before. I was quite pleased to receive this as a trial because I had heard great things about this brand and had previously checked it out and saw how pricey this cream was. Even though this tester only contains 15ml, it is really effective. I observed that my dry skin decreased over the first two days of use and stopped itching.
I noticed my skin was getting healthier and healing after taking it for a week. The texture and smoothness of my skin also seemed to have improved.
For dry skin, this lotion works wonders. I haven’t yet tried applying it on my body, but I will the next time. For anyone with dry skin, I would definitely suggest it.😊
