Question: I've noticed that my sun spots seem to be more prominent than before...is there anything that can help protect my skin against them?
Answer:

To help with sun spots and pigmentation problems you need to take two steps; Protect and Treat. Use an SPF of at least 15 with high UVA and UVB protection on a daily basis! This will help prevent sundamage in the long term. To breakdown exisiting sun spots, apply an anti-dark spot product to your face and your neck.

Question: I suffered with acne when I was younger and panic when I have outbreaks of spots now I'm an adult, is there anything that can effectively treat these?
Answer:

For long term prevention of outbreaks, we recommend a product which helps unclogs pores and treat any blemishes to prevent scars and marks. The cult product, Effaclar Duo + is an absolute miracle for anyone with oily, blemish-prone skin. It is gentle on the skin and enriched with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, making it suitable for sensitive skin.

Question: I work in the beauty world and I'm always trying new skincare brands, but my skin always gets irritated when I try anything new and it takes ages to get used to it, will I have the same problem with La Roche-Posay?
Answer:

All of the La Roche-Posay ranges are specifically formulated to do the complete opposite; they repair damaged skin and are developed to be used on irritable skin without causing irritation! If your skin is really struggling or you have specific dermatological problems like Dermatitis or Psoriasis, the Cicaplast range is the best range to try first. The Cicaplast Pro Recovery balm will aid the skin’s natural barrier by protecting it, meanwhile repairing signs of any prior skin irritation and promoting a healthy skin regime.
