    How often should Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser be used?

    How often you need to cleanse your skin depends on many factors including where you live, what you do for a living and your skin type. People who live in the city, for example, endure poorer air quality, which can clog the pores needing more frequent cleansing. If you have really dry skin, you may need to cleanse less frequently to prevent stripping away your skin’s natural oils.


    The beautiful thing about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is it doesn’t exacerbate dryness but works to hydrate and soothe dry skin. It’s a common misconception that the more you wash your face, the better. But this isn’t true — you can overdo your skincare routine. Washing oily skin too often can cause your skin to produce more oil[1].


    For best results to encourage healthy, clear skin, we recommend cleansing twice a day — morning and night — and once after workouts that involve heavy sweating.


    Is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser good for acne?

    Acne is a common skin condition, especially among teenagers. Acne occurs when pores become blocked by oil, bacteria, dead skin cells and dirt, causing pimples[2]. In most people, acne clears up after a few years, but it can be a persistent and painful problem causing permanent scarring of the skin. To help manage acne and promote clear skin, cleanse your face morning and night with a mild, non-soap cleanser such as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.
