From a drop in temperature, to harsh winds and central heating, your skin faces a whole new set of challenges in the winter months. You might find that your skin feels more sensitive than usual with patches of dryness across your forehead and cheeks, or perhaps it’s the skin on your body and hands that suffer the most.

Whatever your skin concerns are this Winter we are here to help with CeraVe’s hydrating skincare range.


First of all, winter skin requires a hydrating and gentle cleanser to prepare the skin for the rest of the products that follow.This first step also adds must needed moisture to help protect the barrier from external aggressors.

It’s also critical for keeping the skin soft and supple, which makes it excellent at smoothing away ageing signs and plumping up the surface of the skin. It’s also ultra-gentle and lightweight so everyone – not matter their skin type - can benefit from its power.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is suitable for use in the morning and again in the evening pollution and debris. It’s ideal for winter as it’s formulated with the humectant hyaluronic acid – an ingredient that attracts water to the skin’s surface while helping to lock it in. MVE Delivery Technology also supplies the skin with a steady stream of nourishment throughout the day and night while ceramides help to maintain a healthy skin barrier that’s essential for keeping moisture in the skin.


Once you’ve laid the groundwork with a hydrating cleanser,you can apply a protective moisturiser to the face to lock in all of those essential lipids. CeraVe AM Moisturising Facial Lotion is a daily moisturising lotion which enriches the skin with three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid and MVE Delivery Technology (for 24-hour controlled release hydration).It also contains SPF 25 to protect the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
