CeraVe Products For Dry, Sensitive Skin
CeraVe makes products for dry, sensitive skin. It is their speciality. Their products are especially made for those who have dermatitis, eczema, etc. Anyone can use their products though. They are great for skin that tends to be drier or harder to treat. I have found that their products are great because they contain ceramides (Ceramide 1, Ceramide 3 and Ceramide 6-11) that most other products do not. Ceramides that our skin loses is the key to helping keep skin in tip top shape. All of their products have been developed with dermatologists.

This is a great moisturizer. It moisturizes throughout the day for all day hydration. And it contains InVisibleZinc Technology, which has microfine zinc oxide that spreads easily, dries with a clear finish. The SPF30 comes from the following sunscreen ingredients: Homosalate 10%, Meradimate 5%, Octinoxate 5%, Ocotcrylene 2% and Zinc Oxide 6.3%. It is a mixture of chemical and mineral sunscreens. I am happy that this product has at least an SPF 30 broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen though, as it will protect against the sun's rays and help protect against free radicals. This moisturizer is also non-comedogenic and will not clog pores. Mainly, it contains the vital ceramides healthy skin needs to help restore and maintain its natural protective barrier. This product is for normal to dry skin.
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF30 makes a wonderful daily moisturizer and anti-aging sunscreen. I have found that once applied it pretty much sinks right into the skin, with just a little bit felt left on the skin. My skin did feel moisturized throughout the day. I like this and would continue to use it throughout the winter and cooler months.

At night you need a different moisturizer than you do for daytime. CeraVe makes a very nice one that hydrates well and is ultra lightweight but still gives you full moisturization. It has controlled release for all night hydration. One of the main ingredients is Niacinamide or Vitamin B5, which helps to calm skin. This is good if your skin tends to be itchy, red or irritated. Also, it is non-comedogenic, so it will not clog pores. This moisturizer helps restore the protective skin barrier with the help of vital ceramides. It is for normal to dry skin.
I like this moisturizer, as I do the one for daytime. As I get older I find my skin getting drier. This lotion is not heavy, it sinks right into the skin when applied. When I wake up my skin does not feel taught or dry, but healthy and nice. This is a wonderful anti-aging moisturizer for dry skins that helps to keep dry skin from being too dry in the winter and helps moisturize it well during the rest of the year. I could see myself wearing this for most of the year, maybe even during the summer.

If you have moderately dry skin, this would be a good lotion for you to try. It is patented with MVE Delivery Technology to have 24 hour controlled release of its ingredients to help repair and restore the skin's natural protective barrier, thus hydrating the skin. There are 3 essential ceramides in this lotion that help restore and maintain the natural protective barrier. This lotion also contains hyaluronic acid, a molecule that holds 1,000 times its own weight in water. Hyaluronic acid helps to draw moisture into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. This lotion is for normal to dry skins and it helps those with eczema and psoriasis. It is lightweight, oil-free and fragrance-free.
I have found this lotion to be very good at getting rid of dry skin. It is so lightweight but hydrates like a heavier lotion or even a cream. You will notice how well it moisturizes and hydrates the skin in the first use. After several uses you will likely not have dry skin anymore. But, don't stop using it as it is not a cure-all. Dry skin is a condition. It has to be continuously treated. Unfortunately. So keep using this as much as possible and your skin will thank you. If you suffer from eczema you will likely be able to tolerate this product and hopefully it will help. It has been recommended by the National Eczema Association. This lotion is also good for those suffering from psoriasis. It does not aggravate the conditon.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is a thicker, creamier version of their moisturizing lotion. It is heavier and more moisturizing, therefore it is for skin that is drier and in more need of something heavier and creamier. This cream is also patented with the MVE Delivery Technology to deliver a 24 hour controlled release of its ingredients that helps to repair and restore the skin's natural protective barrier, hydrating and moisturizing the skin. There are 3 essential ceramides in this cream that help restore and maintain the natural protective barrier. This cream, like the lotion, contains hyaluronic acid, a molecule that holds 1,000 times its own weight in water. Hyaluronic acid helps to draw moisture into the skin, leaving it feeling softer and more supple. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is for normal to dry skins and it helps those with eczema and psoriasis. This cream has also been recommended by the National Eczema Associaton. It is lightweight, oil-free and fragrance-free.
I absolutely adore this cream for my dry skin. I have very dry body skin. So much that showering every day makes me very itchy. I cannot swim in chlorinated pools, the chlorine makes my skin so itchy that it is unbearable. Using CeraVe Moisturizing Cream helps to manage my very dry skin. I am able to have softer skin, more supple skin and not feel itchy all the time. I like this cream for most times of the year. During the summer I will just use the Moisturizing Lotion instead since it is more lightweight. I have used all kinds of creams over the years but nothing has helped my skin more than this cream. It works better than any other and I do not have to use it every day if I do not want to do so. I feel this cream is one of the best for dry, itchy skin more than any other around.
