I also tried La Roche Posay's thermal spring water but this one is clearly superior. It actually calms and soothes red and inflamed skin.

Using it in of all my day routines
This is a permanent component of all my day routines which hydrates, soothes and calms irritated skin and also has great long-term benefits. It is rich in Selenium, a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation and improves elasticity. I generally use it during the day because Selenium also provides triple benefits to the complexion, protecting against UV damage, inflammation, and hyperpigmentation. I spray it on my face to dampen skin, then apply products with Hyaluronic Acid.
