The gentle products your skincare routine needs RN
Could a beauty routine based on this super gentle skincare range be the answer to our post-winter looks? So many things can send our skin into a spin – a sudden change of weather, air pollutants like city smog and cigarette smoke, as well as certain foods if you eat too much (or too little!) of them. The list is relentless and the visible effects on our skin, especially if it’s sensitive, can be a downer.
That’s why most experts recommend a simplified skincare routine as the first step towards clearer, fresh-looking and more radiant skin. But finding the right products and perfecting a routine that makes your skin happy is often easier said than done, right?
With the current mood for a more natural approach to make-up – as seen on the models at the John Galliano and Elie Saab catwalk shows – it may be time to reassess your skincare regime to make sure your skin’s as healthy as possible, giving you the best starting point for creating that fresh, new look. The good news is it doesn’t have to be complicated, in fact we’re about to suggest the polar opposite with a skincare range that’s both effective and amazing value for money.
Next time you’re doing your Boots haul, head straight for Cetaphil’s range of fragrance-free, gentle skin cleansers and moisturisers for face and body. Supercharged with ingredients to help skin retain its moisture, this is where you’ll find inexpensive beauty buys that are hot on the lips of beauty industry insiders, which will help bring out the best in your skin.
Depending on your skin type, choose Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, £8.99 236ml, or Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser, £8.99, and use your fingers to gently massage the cleanser over your face before rinsing off with water. Both formulas are soap-free and will lift any dirt, excess oils and make-up without leaving your skin feeling irritated or stripped of its natural oils.
After cleansing, pat skin dry and apply Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion, £8.99 236ml, to both refresh and soothe the skin. It’ll enhance your skin’s natural moisture protection system and help restore its protective barrier. The result? Soft, clean skin to complement your move towards a more minimalist, fresh-faced make-up look for spring.
Charlize Theron is one of the many A-list fans to sing the praises of this skincare line – and tbh we couldn’t agree more. Who else is with us?
Cetaphil is available at Boots, Superdrug, Lloyds Pharmacy, Amazon, Tesco and independent pharmacies.
