Use lotion to look younger

I'm approaching my 80th birthday and I never wash my face with soap. I apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion to wipe off my makeup and then I reapply the lotion. I have beautiful skin and very few wrinkles. I think I look 65!

Lather up after laps

I love using Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion after I go swimming. It completely moisturizers my skin after the swim!

Bring it to “bath time”

Use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser to bathe kids with dry or sensitive skin.

Leave it on, then… loofah!

I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser by wetting my face with warm water, applying it and leaving it on for over 5 minutes. I then moisten a loofah facial buff to gently scrub my skin with the rough side followed by the soft side. I rinse my face with water and dab my skin dry. The result is a very nice, glowing and soft complexion!

Stay sun-safe on the slopes

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15 or SPF 50 is an excellent moisturizer to use before heading out to the slopes or doing other outdoor winter activities.

Rely on RESTORADERM when other lotions burn

I work as a full-time embroidery artist. Working with thread on important projects means a lot of hand-washing to keep my work free of dirt and oils. Continual washing dries out my skin so badly! Regular lotions are too greasy and over-scented and need to be washed off before I work again. I tried my son's Cetaphil RESTORADERM Lotion, and it's wonderful! It doesn't burn my dry skin like other lotions do. I figured if it doesn't hurt his sensitive skin, it can't hurt mine either. It's also not greasy or sticky. Thank you!

Prevent dryness

I have lukewarm showers and then apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion to prevent dry skin.

Don’t dry off before moisturizing

I always moisturize while my skin is still damp to ensure better absorption.

Make harsh exfoliants milder

I have been using Cetaphil skin cleanser for over 20 years. Having fair, sensitive skin, it is the one product that I make sure to never run out of. I turned 50 last year and have started to exfoliate once every week or two. I find most exfoliants are a little harsh, so I mix them with my Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. My skin feels amazing when I do this! Thanks for making such a wonderful product!

Find ways to get more moisture

I live in a cold, dry climate (Calgary), so gentle cleansing and extra moisture is key. I use my Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser in the shower and Moisturizing Lotion straight away when I get out, while my skin is still damp. Then, I mix Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with my foundation for more natural coverage – a "dewy" look – and to give my face more moisture. Finally, I "set" my foundation with a spritz of moisturizing toner instead of powder to keep my skin looking fresh.
