Cleanse before bed, especially if you miss the morning

I don't necessarily wash my face every morning, but I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser nightly to remove my makeup.

Apply lotion to sun-damaged skin

I use Cetaphil lotion due to all the sun damage I endured as a teen. I would spend all my summers burning and tanning, and never used any sun protection. I now have dry skin that needs daily lotion. Cetaphil helps it look nice and feel smooth.

Pass it on!

I have extremely dry feet/heels (they're like sand paper!) and tried many products to help soften them, but none has worked as well as Cetaphil. I was so amazed by it that I started using it on my hands and all over my body! My elderly mother-in-law also has problems with dry skin so I bought a bottle for her as well. Then, my son asked if I had any hand cream, as he noticed his hands were peeling, so I gave him my bottle of Cetaphil. Thank you from all of us for your product!

Keep cream close in the winter

Cetaphil is so great for my very dry and sensitive skin. Any other lotion or cream that I had used before would need to be reapplied within an hour, but Cetaphil gives enough moisture to last all day. Due to it being non-irritating, it does not cause itching or create a reaction with my skin. The Moisturizing Cream works amazingly in the winter, even with the dry air and lack of humidity. The cream protects my skin from drying out. Overall, Cetaphil makes great products that everyone can use!

A smooth transition between seasons

Legs can become very dry in fall and winter. Shaving less actually makes the problem worse, since shaving helps exfoliate the skin. Consider shaving with gentle skin cleanser rather than a shaving product.

Gently and easily exfoliate

Follow these three simple steps for a gentle, easy way to exfoliate your skin...

  1. After cleansing your face, mix 1 teaspoon of Cetaphil cleanser with 1/3 teaspoon of baking soda in the palm of your hand.
  2. Apply to the skin and gently massage in a circular motion, creating a freat sloughing action that leaves your skin smooth and refreshed.
  3. Rinse with water.
