Cetaphil Daily Skin Care Routine

You can’t achieve healthy-looking skin in one day, but you can follow a total skincare regimen that includes Cetaphil cleansers and moisturisers. These products are specially formulated to gently cleanse, soothe and soften dry skin without harming your skin’s natural protective barrier or pH balance. Follow these simple steps — and within weeks you’ll see and feel the difference.




Cetaphil cleansers are specially formulated to gently cleanse your skin and minimize dryness and irritation. Unlike everyday soaps, which are often harsh, Cetaphil cleansers are non-drying and non-irritating. They gently cleanse, soothe, and soften dry, sensitive skin without harming your skin's natural protective barrier or normal pH balance.

For facial cleansing morning and night, apply Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Massage gently and rinse. Gentle Skin Cleanser can be used with or without water.

For bath or shower, use a Cleansing Bar.

For oily and acne-prone skin, try Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser.

If you are using a topical medication, cleanse before applying your medication. Follow any special instructions from your dermatologist.




When you use Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion or Cream, you're restoring your skin's ability to retain the moisture it needs. With regular use, your dry, sensitive skin will feel soft, smooth, and moist. Perfect for the hands, face, and total body, Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion and Cream are long-lasting, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic.

After cleansing, pat skin dry. Try to avoid rubbing your skin.

While skin is still damp, apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion or Cream. This helps trap moisture to keep your skin soft and smooth.

During the day, reapply moisturizing lotion or cream as needed, especially after wetting the skin.




Facial skin is exposed to UV radiation every day so it needs facial sun protection every day. So use a gentle, effective facial moisturizing and sun protection lotion.

Apply daily to face, neck and ears before exposure to the sun.


Simple Skin Care Tips:


Ditch the Itch

Ditch the dryness by washing your skin with a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser or Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar. Right after washing, apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream or Lotion for long-lasting hydration. Keep Cetaphil Barrier Cream in your bag or desk drawer and a pump bottle of Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion by the bathroom sink for use after each hand wash.



The morning routine of shaving can be drying and irritating to the skin. Try Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser instead of your regular shaving cream or foam and get a soft, smooth shave. Finish with Cetaphil lotion or cream.


Use Cetaphil After a Shower or a Bath

Apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion or Cream from your neck to your toes within five minutes of your bath or shower – while your skin is still damp. And don’t use too little! This isn’t the time to skimp.


Gentle Facial Exfoliation

A gentle, easy way to exfoliate your skin is simple with Cetaphil. This gentle combination creates a great sloughing action that leaves your skin smooth and refreshed!

1. Cleanse your face.

2. In the palm of your hand, mix 1 teaspoon Cetaphil cleanser with 1/3 teaspoon of baking soda.

3. Apply to the skin and gently massage in a circular motion. Rinse with water.


Infant Care

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is gentle enough for baby’s sensitive or irritated skin, and with no water required for use, it’s great to add to the diaper bag or keep in the car.


Treating Visible Pores

Although you can’t change their size, you can help make visible pores less noticeable by keeping them clear of dirt and oil. Try an oil-free cleanser, like Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser. Complete your routine with a non-comedogenic moisturizer (that means it won’t clog pores) that contains sunscreen like Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 50, to protect your face from the sun, which can increase oil production and lead to—you guessed it—plugged pores!


Managing Acne Breakouts

Breakouts don’t just happen on your face! Acne can occur on the neck, chest and back– so a full-body skincare routine is important. Wash with a non-comedogenic cleanser like Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser and follow with a light lotion-like Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion.


Using Cetaphil in the Outdoors

Cleansing: Whether camping or just cooking out, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is ideal for outdoors since no water is required for use! Just apply, rub in and towel off. No residue remains, just clean, smooth skin. Protecting: Before daily exposure to the sun, apply Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 50 to the face. For additional protection, extend lotion to the ear and neck area.


Removing Makeup

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser can be used as a gentle make-up remover that is non-irritating to your eyes.


Removing Face Paint

Painting your face can be fun on Halloween and lots of other special occasions but when the party’s over don’t go to bed with your makeup on! Remove it the way the label says. If it says to remove it with cold cream, try Cetaphil moisturizing cream. If it says to remove it with soap and water, try Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for a gentle non-irritating cleanser.
