There are many things that are truly a gift from nature – air, sun, earth… and spring thermal water!
Thermal spring water is a type of mineral water that is located deep underground which contains healing properties and is exempt from bacteria and pollution. Naturally pure and rich in mineral salts, iodine and CO2, thermal water is recognized for its therapeutic properties, particularly those that concern the skin.
It was first used by doctors to treat severe skin conditions, but innovative skincare companies like Uriage have combined Uriage Thermal Water with numerous highly innovative active ingredients from biotechnological research so that people of all skin types can benefit from thermal water.
Thermal spring water is more than just water in a can – it packs a great deal of skin benefits like reducing inflammatory symptoms after dermatological surgery, laser surgery or chemical peelings; setting makeup, relief of itch, and more.
Here Are 8 Of My Favorite Uses Of Thermal Water:
 Itch Relief
Eczema flare ups can be controlled with steroid creams but sometimes the itch is unbearable with red patches. Constant scratching can cause infections and scars. I have friends who are eczema sufferers and the wounds on their skin is heartbreaking. =(
Uriage Thermal Water is great for people with atypical skin types like eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, due to the anti-inflammatory and soothing properties of thermal water. I personally have experienced a decrease in itchiness on my sensitive, easily irritated skin.
 Facial Redness
My skin never really recovered from the effects of the facial incident. Apart from itchiness, I have sensitive skin that gets red and raw. Sometimes it is due to the effects of acne control creams, sometimes for reasons I cannot comprehend. The Uriage Thermal Water has so far proven its ability to calm the redness and rebalance my skin each time it threatens to act up.
 Treatment of Burns and Wounds
Because it is loaded with regenerating minerals and antioxidants, it protects our skin against free radicals and helps prevent fine lines and the signs of aging. This product is indispensable especially since our skin is exposed to all that radiation all year round in Singapore. Super refreshing on hot days! It can also treat sunburn and superficial wounds.
 Post-dermo-aesthetic Procedures
As mentioned earlier, Uriage Thermal Spring Water can help treat certain inflammatory skin conditions when used as a therapeutic complement after dermatological surgery, laser surgery or chemical peelings.
Allow me to interrupt for a bit: 😛
I think my skin loves the IDEA of traveling. In the days leading to the travel date, my skin will look super good. It will feel supple and soft, and although not blemish-free, is not breaking out with uncontrollable acne. Throughout the trip, it will behave well. On the eve of the flight back to Singapore, my skin will start to retaliate. Once we get back to Singapore, it will show its resentment with random pimples and dry skin. This phenomenon is not exclusive to this Phuket holiday, it happens every time I travel! My skin is like a rebellious teenage girl with serious hormonal imbalance. It loves the IDEA of traveling but rebels when it actually hits foreign air. Grrrrr!
