How Modern-Day Moms Balance Taking Care of Themselves and Their Growing Babies

Caring for your family starts with caring for yourself

Moms have the kind of selfless love that makes them akin to saints. The welfare of their families, especially their kids, comes first. But as modern thinking has dominated traditional values, modern moms have also reinvented their parenting techniques and priorities. Moms today understand that in order for them to take good care of their kids, they must take care of themselves too. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Moms are now paying as much attention to their own welfare as their children, and it starts from taking care of their skin.

Moms put all kinds of creams and products on their babies’ skin to protect them, but their own skin needs just as much nourishment. Cetaphil understands the needs of moms as both women in their own rights and as the heads of the household. The brand empowers women to be their best, most confident selves so they can do their best for their loved ones too.

Cetaphil offers a wide range of products to suit moms and their babies. Its core line is dedicated to everyday care for mom’s skin. It includes the cult-favorite Gentle Skin Cleanser that has been loved by generations. Its soap-free formula and pH level of 5.5 makes it gentler on the skin than water. It’s also free of fragrance and coloring agents so it’s perfect for those with sensitive skin. Another core product is the Ultra Gentle Body Wash that’s ideal for those with dry, sensitive skin. The gentle formula delivers a unique nourishing combination of hydrating pro vitamin B5 and aloe vera extract to seal in moisture. It cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural moisture, and leaves skin feeling soft and replenished during and after taking a shower. It’s also fragrance-free and dermatologically tested to ensure safety.

The brand also provides a skincare line that’s dedicated for moms who want to achieve healthy radiant skin that is gentle and friendly even for those with sensitive skin. Cetaphil’s new Bright Healthy Radiance range is made with the same care for sensitive skin as its core line, but with the added benefits of reducing dark spots, offering anti-pigmentation, and improves skin evenness and appearance of aging skin. The skin-perfecting Brightness Refresh Toner gives instant luminosity and hydration, while softening and smoothing the skin. In just 4 weeks, the skin becomes visibly more even and radiant. The Daily Brightening Protection Cream SPF15 offers a gentle daily protection against sun damage. The moisturizing cream also helps to brighten the skin tone while preventing dark spots. Then you can cap the day off with the Brightening Night Comfort Cream for an intense hydration that corrects dark spots, revives complexion clarity, and replenishes the skin’s moisture, so you wake up with visibly luminous, radiant skin every morning. All the products in the Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance range are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and clinically tested to be safe for sensitive skin.

Keeping your little ones in mind, Cetaphil has curated a special line for your baby’s delicate skin. Cetaphil Baby supports and strengthens the natural development of babies’ sensitive skin with a range of daily care products especially designed to protect and nourish from birth onwards. Designed as a head-to-toe wash, the Wash & Shampoo gently cleanses the hair, scalp, and skin without drying it nor irritating the eyes of your baby. It contains glycerin and panthenol which are known emollients for strengthening the skin barrier. The Gentle Cleansing Bar is perfect for daily use on the face and body of your newborn. Its key ingredient, glycerin, helps retain moisture in the skin. Complete the circle with the Advanced Protection Cream to help prevent and relieve chapped, chafed skin. The non-sticky, non-greasy formula is easy to apply. It also keeps your baby’s skin hydrated and provides a long-lasting breathable barrier to reduce skin irritation. It’s formulated with organic calendula, allantoin, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, and vitamin B5 to soften and moisturize your baby’s skin all day long. All the products in the Cetaphil Baby range are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, alcohol-free, mineral oil-free, and formulated with natural extracts. Each cleanser and moisturizer is recommended by dermatologists to give your baby’s sensitive skin the gentle care it needs to stay healthy. 

Care for your family better by also caring for yourself. Let Cetaphil be your aid to becoming a modern mom and woman for yourself and your baby.
