A couple of years ago, during the monsoons, I developed a nasty rash. My skin used to itch every night and swell up every time I scratched it. It got even worse after it started spreading to different parts of my body. I told my mom about this and she flipped! The very next day, she booked an appointment with the dermatologist.
As soon as I showed him my skin, he could tell that it lacked moisture. When he asked me how often I moisturized my skin, I didn’t have an answer. The dermat then told me that if my skin was dry, it was inevitably going to itch and swell up. He added that the weather, choice of beauty products and surprisingly, taking hot showers, can strip skin of its natural oils and cause dryness.
Apart from prescribing medicines, he also suggested that I pick up a moisturising lotion from the chemist. I thought to myself, why a chemist? Shouldn’t one keep an eye for a popular moisturising lotion at maybe a supermarket or something?
Anyway, I picked up the moisturising lotion he asked me to get and trust me, there was no turning back after. It’s called the Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion and it’s a product I swear by. Even though the bottle has a minimalistic design to it, the quality of the product is outstanding.
It hydrates my skin to perfection and keeps it smooth and hydrated all day long. I use it twice a day - once in the morning and once before I go to bed. I’ve been using it religiously for two years now and I couldn’t be happier. It’s available at almost every drugstore and the best part is that you don’t need a prescription to buy it.
I’m now tempted to now pick up the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. I’ve heard good reviews about it and I’m pretty sure that just like the moisturising lotion, it’ll agree with my skin too. Ever since I started using it, I haven’t experienced any more rashes or itchiness. After what my skin has experienced in the past, I can’t afford to neglect it ever again.
I think anyone who has dry skin should definitely give this product a shot. As compared to most lotions, this one comes with an affordable price tag and gets the job done like a pro! I think I need to thank my dermatologist for introducing me to this amazing product, because it truly does take good care of my skin.
