SKINCARE TARGETED AT DIABETIC PATIENTS

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

According to a National Health Interview Survey, diabetes currently affects 29 million adults in the United States. Among the many symptoms diabetic sufferers experience are skin itchiness, dryness, cracking and bruising caused by the decrease in their skin barrier’s function.  L’Oréal skincare brand, CeraVe, has introduced three new products targeted at diabetics  Its Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief line includes a Moisturizing Cream, Hand and Foot Cream, and a Cleansing Wash.

The Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief line was developed to address the specific skincare needs of people with diabetes and help reduce their risk of skin complications, which diabetics are prone to, including bacterial and fungal infections, which can be easily contracted via cracks in the hands and feet, making skincare an added concern for them.  Each product contains a combination of three essential ceramides, plus antioxidant-rich bilberry, which helps diminish bruising, and urea to soothe the skin and deliver long-lasting moisture.

“As the number of diabetes sufferers continues to rise, it was important to us that we develop this trio of products to help this growing segment of consumers seeking specialized skincare,” said Derrick Booker, Vice President of Marketing at CeraVe. “We know that people with diabetes have unique skincare concerns and these new products demonstrate our commitment to providing diabetes sufferers with affordable and therapeutic skincare offerings.”

There are so many acne and breakout busting treatments on the market. It’s common to get a feeling of product overload. Dr. Magarita Lolis, a Board-Certified Dermatologist in northern New Jersey, takes a holistic approach to treating skincare issues.  Here Dr. Lolis breaks down the list of common products to consider using for adult acne, with the benefits of each.

Go simple on cleanser. People who are prone to breakouts may use a cleanser with salicylic acid triggering excessive dryness which only increases oil production leading to a breakout cycle. Gentler products that are appealing to all skin types, such as Cetaphil or CeraVe, are great options because they don’t strip away moisture and soothe the face.

Exfoliate weekly. They key here is not to be too harsh!. You want to gently rub product into your face in circular motion then rinse with luke warm water. There are new products available with charcoal an ingredient which does a great job controlling oil in acne prone skin. People with sensitive skin should opt for an exfoliating mask, which is less irritating.

Soothe with serums. Acne prone skin needs moisture not oil. Serums that address acne without compromising moisture are a great bet. Serums penetrate the skin quickly making them a great option for nighttime healing as you sleep. (more…)
