SKIN CONCERNS 101
A destination for education to help you manage your everyday skin concerns
Applying moisturiser to our face has many benefits, from plumping the skin, to brightening the complexion and providing protection from the elements. Moisturiser can also help our skin to repair and renew itself as we sleep, when applied before bed.
As the skin needs slightly different things at different times, we recommend using moisturisers created specifically for night and day. Cerave AM Facial Moisturising Lotion, for example, is formulated to work in harmony with the PM Facial Moisturising Lotion, ensuring your skin is beautifully hydrated and protected 24-7.
Read on to learn more about these two superstar products and why they should be used together for best results.
During the day, your skin is exposed to harmful UVA and UVB exposure rays which can cause deep structural damage and put you more at risk of skin cancer and skin damage – such as sunspots and pigmentation. That’s why CeraVe AM Facial Moisturising Lotion is formulated with broad-spectrum SPF25 protection to ensure your skin is not just hydrated but protected from environmental damage too.
It also contains three naturally occurring ceramides: 1, 3 and 6-II. These important lipids help to support the skin’s natural barrier and retain hydration. Our CeraVe moisturising lotions help your skin feel much smoother and hydrated immediately after applying and long after too..
The humectant hyaluronic acid also plays a vital role in the moisturiser’s ability to plump up the feeling of the skin and keep it feeling moisturised for longer, while Multivesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE®) delivery technology works with the ceramides, and active moisturisers within the formula to deliver controlled and long-lasting hydration to the skin. If you’re concerned about moisturiser blocking your pores or causing congestion, rest assured that Cerave AM Facial Moisturising Lotion is non-comedogenic and super lightweight.
Once you’ve cleansed your face as usual before bed, it’s important to apply a moisturiser. Firstly, this will help to replace the hydration your skin loses throughout the day and from exosire to water, and secondly to aid the skin’s natural regeneration and repair process that occurs when the body is in ‘rest mode’.
CeraVe PM Facial Moisturising Lotion contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid that the AM Facial Moisturising Lotion has but doesn’t contain the added SPF. Multivesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE®) slowly releases a rich dose of moisturising actives over time which allows them to hydrate and restore the skin overnight while helping to maintain the skin barrier. Apply a thin layer over your face and neck after cleansing to leave it feeling softer, plumper and more comfortable by morning.
