Our skin is naturally finer in certain areas of our bodies. Eye contour, ears, lips ... some areas are more sensitive than others to the effects of the sun. This is also the case for areas of the skin that are regularly affected by eczema or other types of skin reactions such as herpes.
A stick for protecting fragile areas
The often neglected areas such as the eye contour, lips, the nose, scars or moles are the more sensitive areas of the body. If they are over-exposed to the sun, they are the first to succumb to the damaging effects of UVB and UVA rays. To prevent these areas of the skin from being over-exposed, they must be protected using a high protection factor. The Laboratoire Dermatologique La Roche-Posay has developed the Anthelios SPF 60 Stick for Sensitive Areas.Find out more about

Smooth on the lips
The lips are naturally fragile, without a corneal layer or sebaceous glands, and need extra protection. Each day they are exposed to external stress (UV rays, wind, etc.), thus the skin of the lips becomes finer and more irritated over time. To combat dryness and tightness, the Laboratoire Dermatologique La Roche-Posay has created Cicaplast Lips, the ultimate barrier for external aggressors. Fragrance-free and paraben-free, this lip balm prevents dryness while nourishing the lips. Use this prior to using the Anthelios SPF 60 Stick for Sensitive Areas.
Open your eyes
The skin is not the only organ that reacts to UV rays. The eyes and eyelids are extremely delicate areas. To prevent glare and to prevent lesions of the retina, wearing sunglasses marked with the CE standard is as vital as using a good sunscreen. There are four different categories of glass: only categories 3 and 4 are suited to strong sunlight such as that at the beach or in the mountains.
Sensitive skin needs special care
Skin prone to atopy reacts more strongly than others to environmental factors such as the cold, the heat, UV rays and pollution. This type of sin is already ultra-fragile, and is even more sensitive to the short and long-term risks of exposure to the sun.
Applying the right sunscreen can help prevent certain discomfort.
A pioneer in sun protection, the Laboratoire Dermatologique La Roche-Posay creates skincare products enriched with Thermal spring water with anti-oxidant and soothing properties, available in various textures for each type of exposure and skin, including sensitive skin. ANTHELIOS SPF 60 Ultra-Fluid Lotion is ideal for this type of skin, offering very high protection against long UVA rays in a new ultra-light texture. It feels like bare skin, with a non-greasy finish.
