SKIN CONCERNS 101
A destination for education to help you manage your everyday skin concerns
At CeraVe, we know that everyone has different skincare needs and concerns so it’s important that our product range reflects that. Each of our product formulas are formulated with a blend of three Essential Ceramides, fatty acids and lipids to help strengthen and protect the skin’s natural barrier – no matter your skin type.
But this doesn’t mean that our skincare isn’t targeted. In fact, our product range caters for all skin types including oily/ combination, rough and bumpy, blemish-prone and dry. Not sure which one is for you? Take a look at our simple guide below and don’t forget that you can mix and match to answer multiple needs at once.
Oily and combination skin is caused by the over-production of sebum and oil in the skin, so cleansing it twice a day with a gentle product can really help to stay on top of discomfort and imperfections. CeraVe Foaming Cleanser, for example, deeply cleanses and purifies the skin while removing oil, dirt and makeup without disrupting the skin’s protective barrier. Pair it with CeraVe’s AM Facial Moisturising Lotion each morning for all-day lightweight hydration and SPF25 protection, switching to CeraVe’s PM Facial Moisturising Lotion in the evening. Both are non-comedogenic so are ideal for oily skin types that become congested easily.
Rough and bumpy skin is very common, especially on the backs of the arms and legs where it is more prone to appear. While scrubbing at the skin can be tempting, the best way to care for and prevent rough and bumpy skin is with an exfoliating cleanser and moisturiser. CeraVe’s SA Smoothing Cleanser can be used on the body to smooth rough and bumpy skin without the use of physical exfoliants which can irritate the skin – and actually make bumpy skin worse. It does this with a formula containing exfoliating Salicylic Acid and hydrating Hyaluronic Acid to target the concern while protecting the skin’s natural barrier. For improved results, pair it with CeraVe’s SA Smoothing Cream for the body. Fast-absorbing and non-greasy, it’s formulated with Salicylic Acid and Urea to gently exfoliate the skin
If you have a dry skin type, you’ll need skincare that helps to replenish lost lipids and oils while helping to protect the skin’s protective barrier. Try to avoid using anything too harsh on your skin as this can strip the skin of moisture and leave it feeling even drier. CeraVe’s Hydrating Cleanser is an ideal product for using every day. Specifically formulated for sensitive, normal and dry skin that’s prone to irritation, it easily cleanses whilst leaving the skin hydrated. Follow it with CeraVe’s AM and PM Facial Moisturising Lotions to ensure your skin has adequate levels of hydration from day to night. If you have dry skin on your body too, CeraVe’s Moisturising Cream can help to bring instant and long-lasting hydration.
