I first used Cetaphil when I was around 15 years old; it was a product from my doctor prescribed by my doctor to try for my acne. Although 14 year old me, I didn’t know about cleansing or have the effort to do so. Once I started using the product, my opinion soon changed. After several weeks my skin appearance began to change, so using the product became my holy grail.
Fast forward a few years, and I became obsessed with the idea of cleansing, especially using a Magnitone brush with my favourite cleanser. Despite trying new cleansers along the way, I always find myself seeking out old friends such as Cetaphil and re-adding them into my routine. Whether you suffer from acne, have oily or dry skin or don’t often get acne at all, using a good cleanser regularly provides an altitude of benefits. If your new to the world of cleansing or you’re looking to try a new product, Cetaphil is a great place to start. Keep reading to find out more about my skincare routine and common skincare myths which need to be dispelled.
When looking into cleansers for your skin type, it’s essential to consider the ingredients list and the skin type recommended. If you have oily or dry skin, making sure the cleanser you are using is compatible with your skin. You can get specific cleansers for oily skin, including the one offered by Cetaphil. Aiming for a kinder cleanser with less harsh products can stop your skin from providing extra oil, which happens when your skin is stripped of oils as a natural response.
Adding a tool into your cleansing routine is ideal for those who love a deep cleanse. Over the years, I’ve tried various cleansing tools such as Magnitone, Foreo, and now I use the PMD Clean. I find using an anti-bacterial silicone-based brush is ideal for my skin. Although the use of tools which require a brush change are still outstanding, the silicone ones don’t need replacements later down the line. The PMD clean gives off 7,000 vibrations per minute to deeply cleanser your skin. I have noticed silicone-based tools can be more expensive than those requiring replacement brushes. However, they’re worth the money, in my opinion.
I know whenever I am having an acne breakout my skin feels dirty and all I want to do is scrub it with an exfoliating scrub, however, limiting your use of these can be beneficially for your skin as they can be damaging to your skin if used daily. If you’re looking to exfoliate it’s best to do it around two times per week as long as your skin can handle it.
The final point I thought would be worth mentioning is the water temperature; there are plenty of sources online which tell you to use cold water or even hot water. But according to experts you need to use lukewarm water when cleansing your face. Using this temperature, you can expect the best results as it is gentle, and most products were tested at this temperature for the best results.
