Skin health education


A program of Conferences and Practical Workshops to help patients to better manage their pathology.

In addition to the actual hydrotherapy treatments, the Avène Hydrotherapy Center staff offers a complete programme of conferences and educational workshops for patients and the parents of child patients, to enable them to take care of their health in a global and personalised way.

Workshops for children and parents

Emollient application worshop for children

Two techniques are introduced to either apply the emollient in a fun way, or while de-stressing:

  • a rhyme to make a game of the application,
  • and using a massage to apply cream



Applying cream can be fun

We offer a fun way to get children to apply their emollient daily. The objective here is to transform an unpleasant task into a game that helps children apply their emollient.

Coco and Leo's rhyme

The massage technique

Massaging with an emollient ensures reinforced skin softness and an opportunity for bonding between parents and children, and thereby improved acceptance of treatment.
