"Your health is more important than beauty, but your skin health is your most visible beauty ."
Q. “I have been using your True Moisture® Gentle Face and Body Skin Cleanser twice a day. I scrub, I scrub, and I scrub. I now have a scaly rash on my face. Why is this?”
True Moisture® Gentle Face and Body Skin Cleanser is a
very gentle cleanser, but it is in fact a cleanser. It contains a very gentle
sulfate free surfactant system that is even gentler than TEA Laureth Sulfate.
Thus, True Moisture® Gentle Face and Body Skin Cleanser or any other gentle
cleanser can eventually dry out the skin if not used correctly. As an analogy,
think of True Moisture® Gentle Face and Body Skin Cleanser as a baby soft
toothbrush compared to a hard adult toothbrush. Though a soft toothbrush is
gentler, if used too vigorously, it will still cause damage to your teeth
and gums. Similarly, take it easy with True Moisture® Gentle Face and
Body Skin Cleanser or any other gentle skin cleanser. Use True Moisture®
Gentle Face and Body Skin Cleanser very sparingly. It is concentrated, so
you only need a dime size amount to cleanse your whole face, or a dime size
amount to cleanse your under arms or groin. Thus, one tube will last a long
time. Do not rub vigorously. Be gentle in your skin care. At times when your
skin is very dry, you may need to avoid all cleansers, even gentle ones, and
cleanse with water only.
True Moisture® offers to you two different skin cleansers for people with different skin care needs. True Moisture® Gentle Face and Body Skin Cleanser is, of course, very gentle, but our most gentle cleanser is True Moisture® Clinical Lipid Therapy® Rinse Optional Skin Cleanser “C.” Cleanser C is designed for people with extremely sensitive skin. True Moisture® Clinical Lipid Therapy® Rinse Optional Skin Cleanser C is our gentlest skin cleanser. I suggest Skin Cleanser C for my patients with severe eczema of the hands, face, or body. I also suggest Cleanser C for my severe dry skin patients with diabetes, thyroid, or kidney problems, and severely dry acne patients on Accutane™, Retin-A™, Differin™, Tazorac™, or benzoyl peroxide medications. Here is how you use Cleanser C: Apply Skin Cleanser C to dry skin. Massage to cleanse. Cleanser C may either be wiped off with a clean towel or rinsed off with water. For severe dry hands I suggest cleansing with Cleanser C, wiping it off, and then moisturizing with True Moisture® Clinical Lipid Therapy® Cream A and Cream B.
So, you see, we have two cleansers. Many patients use the Cleanser C for extremely dry hands and faces, and also for babies with atopic dermatitis. Because it is very concentrated and economical, many adult patients use a dime size amount of True Moisture® Gentle Face and Body Skin Cleanser to cleanse their arm pits and groin. Many adult patients with rosacea use it to cleanse their oily skin. Many teenagers with acne who use over the counter benzoyl peroxide use it to cleanse their oily face. They like it because it foams. But, when my teenage patients are on stronger acne meds, I often suggest Cleanser C.
