CeraVe face creams are an established brand. They have a simple and effective composition. But the most important feature that proves their quality is their unique technology that will take care of your skin's hydration for up to 24 hours.

The shelves of pharmacies and drugstores are overflowing with face creams, and on online beauty portals you sometimes have to click through dozens of pages with different types of such products. Among them the eponymous CeraVe face creams. When the company entered the Polish market in 2018, it became #instantclassic.

    Ceramides in CeraVe creams are special lipids that fill the intercellular spaces in the stratum corneum. We can compare them to the mortar between the bricks. When it starts to crumble, holes are created through which rain (and, in the case of the skin, external pollutants) can invade us.

    "An adequate amount of ceramides forms a hydrolipidic barrier that acts as a regulatory barrier for active ingredients. In combination with corneocytes (dead cells located in the stratum corneum), ceramides form an impermeable barrier to water. In this way, they ensure that the skin is properly hydrated," adds the pharmacist.

    Cosmetologist's comment:

    .
    I particularly recommend this cream to allergy sufferers, people struggling with atopy and skin sensitivity. The product provides rapid relief, eliminates the sensation of skin tightness and burning, instead restoring elasticity and hydration - lasting up to 24 hours. The fully safe formulation supports the condition of the hydrolipid layer, while the formula rich in hyaluronic acid, ceramides and niacinamide soothes irritation.

    This cream will be for you if your skin needs rapid regeneration and lasting hydration. I recommend using it not only on your face, but also on your body - thanks to the presence of urea, it can perfectly deal with calloused areas such as heels and elbows.

    Ceramides contained in the formulation have a regenerative and protective effect on the epidermis, while hyaluronic acid will provide lasting hydration.

    Please note!

    The cream can be used on the face, but be sure to keep a safe distance from the eyes - urea in such high concentrations can irritate the delicate skin around them.

    CeraVe is valued by me for its well-thought-out cosmetic formulations and the ability to tailor them individually to my skin's needs. In my office work, I place great emphasis on the state of the hydrolipid barrier, and the vast majority of CeraVe dermocosmetics support it, thanks to the presence of ceramides.

    CeraVe creams are noteworthy mainly because they contain valuable ceramides (hence the brand name). Ceramides are key to maintaining skin balance. Their function is to retain water in the epidermis, as only a properly hydrated epidermis properly performs its physiological functions.

    Facial care doesn't end with creams - advice from a cosmetologist

    .

    Beautiful, moisturised and healthy skin is not only the result of a good cream, but also of proper care. Take note of some tips from Catherine Srebr - an experienced cosmetologist.

    1. Choose cosmetics for your skin. Choose products to suit your needs and skin type. Make an appointment with a beautician who can give you suggestions on what to use.
    2. .
    3. Proper facial wash. Use gentle cleansers, don't rub your face too hard, and use a dedicated towel to dry your skin.
    4. Facial massage. Try jade rollers or Gua-Sha stone massages. The effects are immediate and regular use smooths and firms the facial skin.
    5. .
    6. Hygiene. Avoid touching your face with your hands. This habit prevents your skin from being exposed to germs and prevents contamination.
    7. .
    8. Hydration. Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day - two litres of water is the minimum. Not only will your skin thank you.

    Maybe you'll be interested in other top beauty products?

    .

    If someone asked me what 3 things I'd take to a desert island, I'd answer that a good moisturiser for sure! I would probably pack an almost half-kilo pack of CeraVe Moisturizes... triple!
