Avene: Thermal Spring Water Spray
I was just having a conversation where I listed the things I did and used during my worst eczema break out and something came up that I haven’t reviewed yet and that’s Avene’s thermal spring water spray. Now a days I save my pennies by using a refillable spray bottle with regular spring water and a dash of aloe vera juice in it as a DIY replacement, however if my skin ever got as bad as it was then again I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to using this stuff; if my homemade solution wasn’t helping that is. The reason is simply because using this did help, especially in the hot summer. I do admit that the fine mist of the Avene spray is better than the big droplets in my homemade spray at covering the skin evenly and sinking into the pores quickly. It helps remove any surface dirt and sweat which can contribute to the itch of eczema. If something on my skin is causing me to itch, be in from a work environment or a dusty book, using this for a few seconds about 20 cm from my face stops that itch by removing the irritating particles. Regardless of whether or not avene’s thermal spring water is actually naturally beneficial to the skin, this mechanism of cooling and cleaning the skin will definitely help stop the itch-scratch cycle, which is crucial in treating eczema. This gets a 5 out of 5 as does the concept of thermal water sprays for the face in general. Handy tip: they are also very nice at setting mineral make-up. If your in Australia (and some other countries) buying this online is much cheaper. Last time I checked the tiniest bottle available (50ml I think) was $10 AU in Priceline, I’ve seen Avene water sprays for half that price online, so it’s definitely worth the P&H costs in my opinion.
