As a psoriasis sufferer, finding a suitable body moisturiser often poses a challenge. Even when my psoriasis isn’t too severe, my skin still often feels dry all over and requires daily moisturisation. Symptoms aside, one of the main difficulties of living with a chronic skin condition is the need to use greasy sticky ointments.
Having just started using Cetaphil Restoraderm Skin Restoring Body Wash, I found that it works well in my daily skin routine and in fact is probably the best body wash I have used to date. You don’t need to use a lot of product for each use and I find it leaves my skin feeling clean, without getting that dry tight feeling.
I also recently tried Cetaphil Moisturising Body Mousse and it’s brilliant. You don’t need a lot to go a long way and it is great as you can use this all over, even if you have a few patches of psoriasis . It is really light and soaks in quicker than anything else I have come across. This means you don’t feel like you need to let it soak in for half an hour or so before getting dressed. You can put it on and in seconds feel dry enough to dress. It is great to have something that can be put on quickly and still feel comfortable. It seems like such a simple idea to make it a mousse, yet it is life changing. It is always difficult to explain to people how much their products affect our lives when you live with a chronic dry skin condition. We have to suffer not only with the condition but all too often greasy sticky ointments. It is great to have something we can put on quickly and feel comfortable. It gives us back some confidence and some very valuable time.
