What is Cetaphil Moisturising Cream?
Cetaphil Moisturising Cream is a form of treatment that helps to relieve the effects of dry and sensitive skin. This cream contains a number of ingredients that help to restore the skin’s protective barrier and make the skin softer, smoother, and healthier. Ingredients in the cream include dimethicone and almond oil, which provide protection for the skin and reduce dryness.
What causes dry skin?
Dry skin occurs as a result of the skin’s barrier becoming damaged, which allows for moisture to escape, leaving dry skin behind. There are a number of factors that can cause dry skin. These are categorised as external and internal factors. External factors that cause dry skin include:
- The weather
- Seasons – Summer and winter especially
- UV rays
- Washing the skin
- Strong soaps
- Some medications
The internal factors that can cause dry skin include:
- Hormones changes – Such as the menopause
- Family history- If there is a history of dry skin in the family, then you are more likely to get it yourself
- Your diet
Some causes of dry skin cannot be controlled or stopped completely. Having the right treatment can help reduce its effects.
