Description

La Roche-Posay Lipikar Xerand Hand Repair Cream is formulated for daily use by men or women with dry to very dry, chapped hands.

In people suffering from a skin condition, the skin on the hands is often the first to show symptoms – dry, rough skin, chapping, and irritation. This is often triggered (and worsened) by the use of standard household soaps and detergents, many of which contain harmful chemicals that strip essential oils and moisture from the skin, aggravating the condition.

This cream is gentle-acting, and works in two ways: firstly, it moisturises the hands, softening the skin and making it feel less tight. Secondly, it helps to restore the protective cutaneous barrier. This is the body’s own protection mechanism against excessive moisture loss from the skin and it is often damaged by dry skin conditions. The cream helps to restore moisture to the skin, leaving it feeling softer and suppler in the long term. It contains the same thermal spring water present in all La Roche-Posay products, rich in the antioxidant selenium and helping the skin to look and feel healthier.

It is lightly fragranced, non-greasy, water-resistant, and leaves is a light film on the surface of the hands that is absorbed quickly into the skin. Lipikar Xerand Hand Repair Cream can be used by adults with sensitive skin, as part of the daily skincare routine.
