What is Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion?
Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion is a form of treatment that helps the skin to look and feel at its best. It helps to restore moisture that has been lost due to dry skin. This lotion is fragrance-free and does not block the pores of the skin. This lotion works to restore the skin’s natural protective barrier that has been damaged, causing dry skin.
How is dry skin caused?
Dry skin occurs when the skin barrier becomes damaged because of a number of potential factors. These causes are either caused by external factors or internal factors. External factors that can cause dry skin include:
- The weather
- Seasons – Summer and winter especially
- UV rays
- Washing the skin
- Strong soaps
- Some medications
Internal factors that can dry out the skin and cause sensitivity to 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
Not all causes of dry skin can be controlled. Having the right treatment for you can reduce its effects and restore the skin’s natural barrier though.
