The colder the weather, the drier, more dehydrated and generally miserable our skin seems to be. With the arrival of a wet and windy autumn, it’s no surprise that most of us have found our complexions in need of a little extra TLC, and not just when it comes to our faces.
Even if you’ve got your daily cleanse, tone, moisturise routine mastered, you might still be guilty of neglecting the rest of your body, but it’s a habit we need to break – especially as we enter during the harsher winter months.
Luckily, CeraVe’s affordable line of products is here to help. The skincare line is a cult favourite amongst celebrities and make-up artists who love its simple yet effective formula, and now there’s another product that’s soaring in popularity: the SA Lotion for Rough & Bumpy Skin.
According to recent reports, sales of the moisturiser shot up 10,000 per cent on Amazon’s Movers & Shakers list in just 24 hours this month, and for good reason. Packed with salicyclic acid to exfoliate, ceramides to support the skin’s natural barrier and hyaluronic acid for ultimate hydration and nourishment, the dermatologist-developed cream is fast becoming another holy grail buy.
In fact, it’s already racked up almost 900 5-star reviews from customers who say its worked miracles on everything from dry, cracked heels to keratosis pilaris (the small bumps that often on areas like the upper arms), and even conditions like psoriasis and acne.
‘This really helped reduce the red bumps on the back of my arms. The redness is gone and the bumps are drastically reduced,’ said one. ‘I don’t have particularly sensitive skin, and I never notice any irritation or stinging when using this, even with broken skin. It really feels like any other lotion to me, but with the added benefit.’
‘For a long time, I suffered from tiny bumps all over my skin that caused a rough texture. It made me lose confidence. But I saw results after the first night!’ agreed another. ‘Seriously, I have yet to find a comparable moisturiser. If texture or breakouts is your concern, this is for you!’
‘This lotion was life changing. I was struggling with keratosis pilaris (chicken skin) that made me very self conscious of the look and feel of my skin,’ echoed a third.
‘The condition seemed to never go away. But after just three days of using this lotion three times a day, my skin had improved greatly & in less than two weeks my skin became almost completely normal again! I’ve been applying it to my face as well and it has been clearing up my acne! 10/10 do recommend.’
There’s only one catch, and it’s a minor one: CeraVe’s SA Lotion for Rough and Bumpy Skin isn’t widely available in the UK, and is only available through the American Amazon site right now.
However, you can still pay get it shipped to your door – we calculated that with conversion and postage to be just under £20, which, when you consider the transformative results that hundreds of previous customers say they’ve had, could well be worth the investment.
