The signs of sensitive skin will appear when our skin reacts negatively to a certain product or environment. The reactions usually are irritation, itchiness, pain, stinging feeling, or tightening of the skin. To keep our sensitive skin healthy, it’s very important to choose the right skincare regimen.
The key for any for sensitive skin regimen is to use products with simple yet gentle formulas which will not increase the chances of skin irritation. You also need to avoid skincare products with active ingredients that are not necessary or suitable for your skin type. In fact, perfume in skincare products will trigger the skin irritations.
Moisturizing your sensitive skin regularly is also important. When your skin loses its moisture, the protection layer becomes weak and can get irritated easily. Therefore, you need to avoid skincare with alcohol and detergent which can reduce skin’s natural moisture.
As a brand dedicated to skin health, Cetaphil is formulated without excessive foam and added fragrance so it can be used for any skin type including the sensitive skin.
Below are the three steps for sensitive skin using Cetaphil products:
Cetaphil has cleansers with simple yet gentle formula which effectively cleanse and keep the skin moisture at once, so it is suitable for normal or even sensitive skin. Dry, normal, combination, acne-prone and sensitive skin can use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin can use Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser.
Cetaphil moisturizers don’t have added fragrance so it will protect your skin’s natural moisture and against external factors. To protect your skin’s moisture, you can use Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion or Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream – the moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin – or Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion – the moisturizer for dry, normal, combination, oily, and sensitive skin. With hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic formula, Cetaphil moisturizers will not clog your pores and are suitable even for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Sunscreen can protect your skin against the UV/UVB radiation effects such as burnt, reddish, dry and dull skin or in worse cases – skin cancer. Sunscreen with micronized titanium dioxide such as Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 or Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 will help to build a protection layer on top of your skin. They are also non-comedogenic products, so it will be easily absorbed and won’t clog pores. With hypoallergenic formula, these sunscreens are suitable for all skin types even for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
These three steps are important to be done regularly and everyday, whether you have normal skin or sensitive skin. This rule is also applies for acne-prone-skin. The skin regimen for acne-prone-skin starts from cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin.
