Add Barrier Cream when it’s cold out

At the height of brutally dry Calgary winters, I use the Barrier Cream on my face. Before going to bed, I first wash my face and moisturize as usual, but then I apply Cetaphil Barrier Cream to the red, flaky areas. By morning, it has worked its magic and – presto! – no more unattractive “face dandruff”!

Prevent post-shave dryness

I apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion right after shaving my legs. It really helps prevent dryness.

Don’t go to bed dolled up

Never go to bed with makeup on your face. Use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser followed by Moisturizing Cream.

Use on babies’ bottoms and after bathing

When our son was 3 months old, his skin became red, extremely dry and itchy. Moisturizing his skin was a nightmare, as he would cry in pain. We tried all kinds of products to keep his skin moisturized, but other products were harsh on his dry, cracked skin. Soon, we discovered Cetaphil RESTORADERM, and what an amazing product it is! In less than a week, our son's skin got better. Now, we apply the lotion on his skin after a bath and whenever we change his diaper. We can tell Cetaphil RESTORADERM Replenishing Lotion is not harsh on his skin, as he does not cry whenever we apply it. Thank you!

Swap your soap for the Gentle Cleansing Bar

I recently bought the Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar and it is amazing. It just has so much lather and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth all over. Whether you have skin problems or not, Cetaphil is the best product on the market! I will never use anything else. Thanks, Cetaphil!

Use a dab of lotion to last the day

While I was using prescription medication for my face, my skin was very dry. It would peel and become red. So I asked my dermatologist, and he recommended Cetaphil. I instantly fell in love with the Moisturizing Lotion! It's a very light formula, but it stays on. You need the tiniest amount and you’re good to go! And it’s not scented like other brands. This is definitely one product I will be using for the rest of my life, and passing it on for many generations!

Replace your baby lotion

We recently had twins and we find that the winter months make their skin very dry. They get red, itchy blotches on their skin and they don’t sleep as well. We switched from using baby lotion to using Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion and it has made a big difference. They even sleep better!

Use a cotton ball to cleanse

I cleanse with Cetaphil DERMACONTROL Foam Wash using a cotton ball. Then I use the DERMACONTROL Moisturizer SPF 30 in the morning. My face looks the best it ever has! Thank you, Cetaphil!

Start a maintenance routine to stay radiant

I am (ahem!) 50+ and include Cetaphil as part of my daily skin care routine. (It's not just for problem skin, you know!) Skin texture and pores change as you get older, and using Cetaphil keeps my skin clean and radiant. I call it my “low-cost maintenance routine”.

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.
