There are many cleansers and moisturisers out there which claim to have been specifically developed to assist with healing problem skin and for use with highly dry and sensitive skin. These products can often do more harm than good which results in a lot of skepticism about whether budget skincare products are worth the buy.
Cetaphil® was recently launched in the UK and already it has recommendations by celebs such as Amanda Holden, but what is it about this affordable skin care range of moisturisers and cleansers that's causing people to rush out and grab theirs?
Lets start by looking at the skin. Your skin's outer layer is shielded by a barrier which prevents bacteria and chemicals from entering. The outer layer stays protected and hydrated using the skin's natural oils; however skin damage due to dryness and other skin conditions such as eczema, acne, rosacea and psoriasis can pervade this barrier.
The Cetaphil skincare range provides support in protecting the barrier with its remarkably gentle formula. Cetaphil cleansers are non-drying, non-irritating and help restore the skin's ability to retain moisture. Cetaphil moisturisers work effectively to restore the skin's natural barrier whilst providing long-lasting skin hydration. Each product is fragrance free, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic and recommended by dermatologists for use on dry skin, highly sensitive skin, and problem skin.
Tip: For a natural exfoliation on your face and neck, mix Cetaphil lotion with oatmeal and sugar and massage in to help remove dry and dead skin cells.
