My grandmother — who inspired me to be strong and independent — used to give me little nuggets of advice that I cherish today, now that she is gone. When she visited me in my first apartment, she witnessed all the pricey skin care products that were in my medicine cabinet, then the questions came: “How do you keep track of all that stuff? Why do you spend so much money on this? Do you really think these products will make a difference?” She was particularly curious about all the crèmes and moisturizers on one shelf – eye, neck, face, lip, body, hand and feet. She continued, “In my generation, we just used soap and water, and our skin was beautiful!” While I listened, I didn’t make any changes in my routine — until decades later after I had my three children.
One day, I woke up and just got to a place where I needed simplicity throughout my life. There was just too much of most everything and so I started to reevaluate my life to determine where I could make changes. I wanted more time with my kids, and less time focusing on obtaining more stuff. I reflected on what my grandmother said about my skin care regimen all those years ago. I jettison the need for department store products, and went on the hunt for one product that I could get at a grocery or drug store or online, which was a welcome addition to my medicine cabinet, wallet and how I spend my time.
Besides, I needed to find my beautiphil….and simplicity was going to help get me there.
Searching for that one product that was going to bring me simplicity and beautiful, a friend recommended that I try Cetaphil, and I have to say that I have found what I’ve been searching for. This was the one product that I found cleaned my skin, but didn’t strip it away from all my natural oils. I used to always feel the need to put on moisturizer the minute I toned my face, because it felt like my face was going to crack if I didn’t treat it immediately. With Cetaphil, I didn’t even feel like I needed to moisturize. Cetaphil delivers results without compromising gentleness; everyday skincare even for the most sensitive skin, like mine.
I learned that Cetaphil is recommended by more dermatologists and pediatricians than any other cleanser and moisturizer brand. We believe skin should be clean, but not stripped. Smooth, but not greasy. For more than 60 years, Cetaphil has been helping people simplify the way they care for their skin. This is the gentle power of Cetaphil®.
So, going back to my grandmother, my question to you is …how do you find your Beautiphil?
