Based on the ancient medical ingredient Centella Asiatica, Cica balms are a pretty big thing right now. They have the potential to treat everything from cellulite and scarring to psoriasis and dehydration while dramatically improving the skin’s overall health and moisture levels, especially during the winter. Here are just a few of our favourites…
If you have dry, inflamed or sensitive skin, this Cica-infused product is a must-have. This multi-tasking balm and mask blankets the skin in Centella Asiatica to support post-procedure cell recovery whilst providing long-lasting relief from redness, discomfort and sensitivity, making it a skincare staple to tackle the harsh winds and dryness of winter. It can be applied to clean skin as and when required or applied overnight as an intensive, repairing treatment.
To refresh and restore a dull complexion, try this rich, honey-like cream. As this luxurious product melts into the skin, it locks moisture deep into the skin while soothing any discomfort to banish the signs of dehydration; and it’s all thanks to its key ingredient, Centella Asiatica. All it takes is a small amount massaged into cleansed skin before bed to reveal a more youthful, smooth complexion by morning.
Designed to soothe and calm stressed, sensitised skin, this unique blue cream contains Centella Asiatica to ease stress while providing much-needed hydration to a thirsty complexion. It also prevents the development of scars or pigmentation and can be used to heal eczema flare ups or painful sunburn. This gentle cream can be applied to even the most sensitive skin, either all over or to key areas every evening to reduce any discomfort.
If you like an indulgent skincare experience, this is the Cica balm for you. This moisturising balm can be applied to problem areas on the face and body to provide the skin with the key nutrients and moisture it needs. The added Centella Asiatica helps to ease any feelings of tightness while intensely nourishing the complexion, to leave it feeling more supple and comfortable almost instantly.
For a more targeted treatment, try this potent cream that is designed to calm, strengthen and repair. The Centella Asiatica in this product works to stimulate the production of Collagen type I, which improves skin density following trauma or irritation, which not only helps to support barrier functions but can also reduce UV damage, scarring and inflammation. When applied to problem areas after moisturising, this effective cream aids the skin’s healing process and hydrates any dry patches for instant relief.
