[THE IMPORTANCE OF CHANGING UP OUR SKINCARE ROUTINE] FEAT. CETAPHIL SKINCARE ESSENTIALS + TOP TIPS BY DR. ADAM SHERIDAN!


 HELLO GUYS, 

WELCOME BACK! 

It's essential that we look to change up our skincare routine as it needs to be adapted to every season. Take Winter as an example, where we all know that the weather can leave the skin feeling dry, flaky and irritated. So that means we need to change up our current skincare routine or perhaps look to source the 'right' products that can assist with skin dehydration and sensitivity.

Leading dermatologist, Dr. Adam Sheridan explains to us that "it's so important to change up our skincare routine to deliver and maintain skin that not only looks healthy, but functions in the healthiest way possible through the harsh winter months. And in Winter, our skin becomes dehydrated and tends to appear dull, blotchy, flaky and irritated. A supportive soap-free cleanser, effective moisturiser and some sort or environmental barrier (i.e. SPF 50+ UVA/UVB sunscreen) are essentials in delivering and maintaining skin."

For some of Dr Sheridan's Top Tips on conquering winter skin woes, check out the below: 
  • Opt for a hydrating cleanser to lock in moisture, 
  • Apply SPF in winter - Cloud, fog and haze do not fully screen out UV rays (with up to 80 per cent of the sun's rays travelling through clouds). 
  • Switch from a lotion to a thick moisturiser at night time to hydrate dry spots, soothe irritation and restore radiance.

So for some of the ideal products to use in your new skincare routine for winter, be sure to check out the below for some suggested products that are highly recommended. 

I hope you all enjoy the read,

Featuring the Cetaphil range for an ideal winter skincare routine. 


Step 1: Cleanse the skin 

  • Cetaphil, Oily Skin Cleanser - (RRP $11 for 235ml) - This cleanser is made for sensitive type skin and of course for those who have oily, combination or blemished skin. It effectively removes oil, dirt and residue without that drying out feeling which is amazing. There's a really nice and gentle foam action that you get from using this cleanser and I can say that it effectively cleanses my skin really well which I am very impressed with. What makes the Oily Skin cleanser different from the Gentle Cleanser is that it is formulated to remove oil without affecting your skin's barrier. Most importantly, the cleanser does not clog the pores, comes as soap free and has also been dermatologist recommended as a cleanser to help those with oily and combination type of skin. I would definitely have to agree with how effective this cleanser is in terms of removing oils, dirt and make-up from your skin's surface. Other products out there can sometimes dry out your skin, but with the Oily Skin Cleanser by Cetaphil - it lives up to its expectations of being a top oily skin cleanser in the market so far. This product is made to be used on both face and body. 
  • Cetaphil, Gentle Skin Cleanser - (RRP $8.60 for 125ml) - Then we have their gentle and skin cleanser which is made suitable for all skin types. Looking for a gentle way to remove dirt, oil and make-up from your face without clogging the pores? Check out their Gentle Skin Cleanser which moisturises and cleanses all at the same time. It's a soap, pH balanced and fragrance free product and it won't even sting your eyes. You can choose to use the Gentle Skin cleanser with or without water. 
Dermatologist Dr. Adam Sheridan's skincare tip: "A good cleanser will 'reset and re-balance' the skin as it cleans, removing environmental pollutants and microbes to encourage healthy skin cell turn over. It should also maintain the skin's natural pH, replenish lost moisturising factors and avoid undue disruption of the skin barrier through abrasion and stripping."


 2. Moisturise, Protect and Condition

Once you've cleansed your skin, make sure you do look to apply a daily moisturiser with a high SPF factor to it (or at least has some form of SPF to it) because we may believe that not all days we require sunscreen right? Wrong! Have you all head of overcast before? Protecting the skin is so important guys so make sure to use products that contain SPF+ to them as it can help protect your skin from the sun's rays. UV levels are actually higher during winter which means that your skin is prone to ageing much quicker. Hence, you're going to need a good sun protection during the day. I recommend the Cetaphil Suntivity Liposomal Lotion SPF 50+ because of the ultimate protection that it provides to your skin. To hear more, check out the below: 

  • Cetaphil Suntivity Liposomal Lotion SPF 50+ (RRP $20.95 for 100ml) -  This is the highest protection of SPF 50+ that Cetaphil offers for those with sensitive type skin. There's definitely a broad spectrum for UVA and UVB, is fragrance free, is non-greasy and does not clog the pores! Most importantly you can easily wear this under your make-up. 

Furthermore, remember to condition your face and body during winter because we all know how dry and flaky it can affect our skin. To assist with any dry spots on the skin, use a heavier moisturising cream on the patches. This soothes any sort of irritation and discomfort of the skin. I looked to check out a Moisturising Cream by Cetaphil - (RRP $9.00 for 100g) -  which is essentially the perfect ideal for dry and sensitive skin as it's fragrance, paraben and lanolin free and also has been dermatologist recommended. The Moisturising cream contains Sweet Almond Oil which is so rich in Vitamin A, B and E which all provide soothing and nourishing benefits for the skin.
