How do you know if your skin is desperately telling you to step up your skincare routine?
If you are experiencing any of these 5 signs of sensitive skin, it might be time to revamp your skincare products and perhaps change to a more gentle, dermatologically-recommended skincare routine. So check your skin condition and if you notice any of these signs, your skin might be trying to tell you something:
All these indications on your skin could suggest that your current skincare routine might not be the best for it at the moment. When your skin starts acting up, it's best to treat it as gently as possible in order to calm the reaction.
When your skin health is compromised, it is crucial that you start using products that are gentler and kinder to your skin. Need suggestions? Why not try Cetaphil! Cetaphil ranges are highly recommended, especially for troubled skin as their gentle, hydrating formula will ensure your skin is delicately cared for.
Troubled skin requires only the simplest of routine, ideally cleanser-moisturizer-sunscreen. If you don't know where to start, here's what we'd recommend from Cetaphil:
Cleanser: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
This is a soothing foaming cleanser that not only can be used on your face but also on your body too! It contains niacinamide (vitamin B3), panthenol (vitamin B5) and hydrating glycerin to improve the resilience of sensitive skin. It is also proven to provide continuous hydration so that your skin isn't dry even after washing. Suitable for those who have sensitive skin as it is not harsh on the skin at all.
"The cleanser did a great job in cleaning my face without leaving any residual impurities on my face." - Norshuhadah
"Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser is a mild and really helpful to recover my breakout skin from chemical product" - Atieka
Moisturizer: Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream
The Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream binds water to the skin to prevent moisture loss. That way your skin is not dry and flaky but hydrated and healthy at all times. It can also be used on your hands, feet, elbows, knees and any area that needs a little extra moisture.
"As a super busy businesswoman and workaholic with an active lifestyle, it is essential for me to have a perfect cleanser & moisturiser that is gentle on my skin so I can maintain fresh and hydrated skin every day. I stumbled upon Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and Moisturising Cream and immediately fell in love with it because it felt really light and perfect on my skin." - Intan Nur Shaheera
"Almost every day, I'm working with heavy makeup, to take care of my skin and avoid breakouts, I have been using Cetaphil and the results are super good. After using it I noticed that my skin is healthier and smoother. So, you guys should try it!" - Najihah Mazlan
Sunscreen: Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50+
As Malaysians, we are exposed to the sun almost every day since we live in tropical weather. So, it is important to protect our skin from the sun in order to ensure that our skin stays healthy. That is exactly what Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50+ does! It soothes and moisturizes skin while its patented Mexoryl technology with 8 filters provides optimum sun protection against UV rays.
"The sunscreen provides effective sun protection against UV rays, keeping skin healthy. It is a lightweight sunscreen that is highly water-resistant and suitable for sensitive skin. While it has a thick texture it feels light on the skin. It also doesn't clog my pores and it is easy to clean." - Nik Nazirah
"As someone who uses active serums on a daily basis, I have to protect my skin from UV rays and at the same time, be delicate with it. What I love about the Cetaphil SUN SPF50+ Light Gel is that it offers high broad-spectrum sun protection against UVA/UVB rays for both face and body." - Iffah
