Think of your skin as a sponge. If it’s dry, the top layer will be stiff and rough, making it hard for any liquid (besides water) to penetrate. With ample hydration, however, your skin will be moist and plump, and all the skincare you layer on will soak right in, with skin-fortifying and -nourishing nutrients penetrating deep into the dermis. As a result, you won’t just have a healthy complexion, but skin that’s optimised to self-regenerate and shield itself while glowing from the inside out.

Introducing The Hydrance Range

Enter the Hydrance range, by dry, sensitive and sensitised skin experts, Eau Thermale Avene. This collection of hydration skincare seeks to immerse miens with replenishing moisture, helping to rebuild a moisture reservoir beneath the surface, while strengthening skin’s ability to restore and retain all that goodness.

Key Technology

At the heart of the Hydrance range is COHEDERM, a trio of lipids carefully selected for their ability to restore the hydrolipidic film which sits on the skin’s surface. At the same time, it also creates water reservoirs beneath to catch and retain Avene Thermal Spring Water, ensuring that the skin gets a constant supply of hydration.

Must-Have Essentials

Developed to provide intense moisture to dehydrated skin, the Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum is perfect under a day or night cream for an added dose of hydration. It has a unique hybrid gel-liquid texture which melts into skin and is absorbed quickly without feeling thick or sticky. The formula contains microspheres that encapsulate COHEDERM and Avene Thermal Spring Water which then release moisture into the tiny water reservoirs to instantly and continuously quench skin’s thirst for up to 24 hours. Over time, comfort is restored, skin feels softer, smoother and even fine lines look less visible. 

The Hydrance Routine

Complete your hydrating skincare regimen with the following steps: The Hydrance Light Hydrating Emulsion, a lightweight formula that sinks into skin effortlessly, providing hydrating, soothing relief that leaves complexions soft and supple; and the Hydrance Rich Hydrating Cream, a moisturiser which also features COHEDERM and Avene Thermal Spring Water to help reach optimum hydration levels while locking in all preceding products. For night time care and regeneration, the latest addition to the range is the Hydrance Aqua-Gel Night Hydrating Sleeping Mask. Thanks to its refreshing gel texture, it sends moisture deep into skin to hydrate, soothe and detoxify overnight so you wake up to a healthier, smoother and more radiant complexion.
