How to use this product
After cleansing, pump the applicator to release the moisturiser onto clean fingertips or directly onto the face. Apply liberally onto your face in the morning. CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion is for daily photoprotection care. When exposed to intense or prolonged sun, use an adapted sunscreen. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.
Why is an SPF in skin care important?
Ensuring that your skincare products (i.e your moisturiser) contains an SPF isn’t just important on warm, sunny days, but on cloudy and rainy days, too. Without it, your skin is at risk of being exposed to harmful UV rays which can lead to skin damage, wrinkles, sunburn, and sometimes skin cancer. It’s important to wear an SPF of at least 30 to ensure you’re protected.
What SPF should you wear daily?
You may believe that your SPF 15 sunscreen is enough to prevent skin damage, and although it’s certainly better than nothing at all, you should choose a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. There are two types of UV rays that you should protect yourself from - UVA and UVB. When buying your sunscreen, look for the UVA star rating; this should be no less than 4.
When should I use moisturiser?
Moisturisers are one of the most essential components of a skincare routine, but when is the best time to use it? Always use a moisturiser after cleansing or washing your face for a boost of hydration that will prevent your skin from drying out. Generally, using a moisturiser once in the morning (along with SPF!) and once in the evening is a good benchmark.
