The weather is warming up and at this time of year it’s important to stay hydrated. Tuesday 23rd June is National Hydration Day so why not celebrate by establishing a new routine to ensure your skin and body stay hydrated this summer season.
Drinking sufficient amounts of water each day is imperative for healthy brain function, energy, movement and more. It is also important for skin health.
Dehydrated skin can have a dull, lackluster appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles appear more prominent and skin can also become more sensitive when dehydrated.
Eau Thermale Avène’s hero range of Hydrance products, can slot easily into any regime, helping to keep skin nourished and hydrated and complexions looking healthy and glowing coming into summer!
To start your day on the right note, why not challenge yourself to drink a large glass of water while you get ready in the morning. By just taking a few sips between each step in your skin, makeup and hair routine, your body will thank you when you sit down at your desk or start working on your to-do list.

Since mid-March, staff from Pierre Fabre, the company behind French brands Eau Thermale Avène and Klorane, has fully mobilized dermo-cosmetics plants in Soual, southwest France, and in Areal in the State of Rio de Janeiro to produce hydroalcoholic gel, in an effort to assist with the current global shortage of the product as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the context of the unprecedented and worldwide public health emergency caused by Covid-19, hydroalcoholic gel has become an absolute necessity. Hospitals, pharmacists and pharmacy staff are on the front line in the fight against the virus and need it to protect themselves in exercising their duties and to meet the exponential and huge demand of their patients.
As the long-standing partner of dispensing pharmacists, the Pierre Fabre Group was eager to assist where possible and while hydroalcoholic gel is not a product usually manufactured by Pierre Fabre, the teams in its laboratories worked tirelessly to find means of producing the essential product for distribution throughout pharmacies and hospitals in the 4 most affected European regions of France, Spain, Italy and Germany as well as in Brazil.
Pierre Fabre is in permanent contact with component and packaging suppliers to increase these volumes in the coming weeks and cover more markets if possible.
The Pierre Fabre Group extends its heartfelt thanks to its staff and partners who are working hard make this operation a success.
