Cetaphil® is a brand I’ve talked about before, because it’s gentle, great for dry skin, and amazingly affordable. With my hectic schedule these days, it’s super important that my skin care routine is quick, but still effective. Today, I’ll be sharing my AM routine, which features my cold weather secret weapon – the ultra hydrating Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream!
IT STARTS IN THE SHOWER…
First things first. Like all morning routines, this one starts in the shower. This time of year, it’s imperative that you take it easy on hot showers. They are relaxing, but hot water (mixed with cool temps), means your skin will be drier than the Sahara. Instead, stick with lukewarm water.
Another tip I have for combating dry winter skin is to make sure you’re properly exfoliating. Do it too much, and you’re left with irritated skin, do it too little and it’s not going to make much of a difference. So, what’s the magic number? Try to aim for twice a week. It sloughs off dead skin, and helps with application of moisturizers.
TIME TO MOISTURIZE!
The most important step in my routine is post-shower moisturization. The Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream is clinically proven to provide immediate hydration without any greasy or heavy residue. It absorbs quickly (so it’s great for mornings), and it instantly makes my skin feel hydrated and smooth.
Cetaphil® is gentle for sensitive skin. It’s jam packed with emollients and humectants, that are formulated to bind water to the skin to prevent moisture loss. The result is soft, smooth, comfortable skin that’s protected against the harsh winter elements. It’s my secret weapon this time of year, when my legs and arms are prone to dry, itchy patches.
CLEANSE & PROTECT
Once my body care is done, I move on to my face. Cetaphil® offers a wonderful range of gentle face products, that are great for sensitive skin types. The Daily Face Cleanser is a low foaming, gentle face wash that’s formulated to remove surface oils, dirt, and makeup. It’s gentle enough for everyday use, and easily washes away without stripping skin of its natural oils.
For sun protection, I reach for the Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15. It’s lightweight, works beautifully under makeup, and provides broad spectrum sun protection. In addition, with daily use it actually improves skin’s ability to retain moisture!
FEEL THE GENTLE POWER OF CETAPHIL®
As I mentioned earlier, my skin is very dry and sensitive this time of year. But, since I started incorporating the Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream into my daily routine, my skin feels soft and hydrated all day – from the moment I walk out the door, until I get home in the evening.
The rich formula feels lightweight on the skin, and instantly delivers a boost of moisture. You can find yours, and all the other Cetaphil® products mentioned, in the skin care section at your local Target. You’ll find it in two places, on an end cap near the beauty items, and also in the skin care aisle!
