Personalize your skincare routine with Cetaphil
October 12, 2016
Nowadays we are so spoiled for choice when it comes to skin care and creating your own personalized regime, it would be quite shameful if you didn’t adapt your skin care time to suit your skin’s needs. An oily skin might not need only oil control products, so I encourage users to mix and match, play around, ask for testers and try different things until your skin is happy. Trust me, you’ll know.
Within the CETAPHIL range I’ve managed to pinpoint three items that suits my needs down to the T at the moment. The GENTLE CLEANSING LOTION, as I’ve mentioned before is a non-soapy formula that is as effective in removing dirt and makeup as it is gentle. It has a lightweight milky consistency that coolingly soothes irritated and enflamed skin while keeping it smooth and moisturized, even while cleansing. You don’t need to have eczematic or irritated skin to use it, I personally use it all the time! During winter it is the perfect nourishing cleanser and in summer it soothes dehydrated skin. I think apart from the fact that this cleanser is gentle enough to remove eye makeup even without water, I like that it does not dry out my skin. In summer when skin has excess oil on it I’ve been known to just ‘wash-n-go’ with this cleanser.
Along with the Gentle Cleansing Lotion I adore using the MOISTURIZING CREAM. It absorbs quickly, smoothes skin, adds incredible moisture and dry or damaged skin absolutely loves this formula. It maintains the skin’s natural moisture barrier so it’s perfect for those dehydrating summer days and drying winter times. The formula is non-greasy and does not clog pores. I tend to use it at night and I sometimes even use it on my elbows, knees and heels before bed time.
Because we’re going into a time where sun care is key (see next month’s feature on this), using a light UVA UVB DEFENSE cream during the day is super important. This daily moisturizer with broad spectrum spf50 protection will protect even the most sensitive of skins ultimately. Seven filters and a physical blocker is combined to protect against sun aging, further sun damage and sun burn. Initially I thought the formula would be on the thick side but surprisingly it absorbed well and I was able to apply makeup without it feeling like it’s floating on a movable layer.
I can say that the more and more I use and play around with the Cetaphil range, I realize what a truly amazing product listing this brand offers. It’s clean, simple, does the job brilliantly and does not break the bank. I’ll say it again, the more and more I use it, the more I #SwearByCetaphil !
