I had never really thought of the fact that diabetics have different skin care needs. That is, until recently, one of my diabetic readers asked me if I had any suggestions as to which skin care products would work the best for her extremely dry skin. I did a bit of research, and learned about CeraVe®’s Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief line. I have definitely learned some valuable information, and I am happy to pass it on.
CeraVe®, a skincare brand owned by L’Oréal, has announced four new products joining its expansive portfolio of therapeutic skincare products in late 2018, including a Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum and a Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief line, which 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.
According to a National Health Interview Survey, diabetes currently affects 29 million adults and the CDC predicts this number may grow to one-in-three adults by 2050, as 86 million others have already been diagnosed with prediabetes. Amongst the many symptoms diabetic sufferers can experience are skin itchiness, dryness, cracking and bruising caused by the decrease in their skin barrier’s function. Diabetics are also more susceptible to bacterial and fungal infections, which can be easily contracted via cracks in the hands and feet making skincare an added concern for them.
“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.”
Each product in the line contains a combination of three essential ceramides, plus bilberry and urea which help to soothe the skin and deliver long-lasting moisturization. Bilberry is antioxidant-rich and known for helping to diminish bruising, while urea is a natural moisturizer that adds and retains moisture.
The Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum, created to help consumers counteract the lifestyle habits that dehydrate skin, such as stress, weather and diet, is also set to hit shelves in late 2018. The formulation replenishes skin with hyaluronic acid, a powerful and popular hydrating ingredient that moisturizes dull and dehydrated skin and locks in moisture to prevent water loss. The serum also contains vitamin B5 which aids skin in achieving a more supple and radiant appearance.
The four new products join the brand’s large portfolio of more than 40 therapeutic skincare products spanning moisturizers, cleansers, serums, sunscreens and baby products. The brand also offers products specifically formulated to treat certain skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis. All CeraVe® products are developed with dermatologists and contain ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II, which help repair and restore the skin barrier. CeraVe® products, including the latest launches will be available at Amazon and mass retailers nationwide.
I personally already love CeraVe® products, and completely trust this brand. I was given the chance to review the Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief line, and it is wonderfully hydrating! I was planning to keep it for myself, but my sister-in-law just came for a visit, and she is diabetic. I decided to pass the products on to her, and she is beyond pleased with them. She has very sensitive skin, as well as dry, and she loves the products, so I am happy to share.
