Itching to Get into Your Summer Gear? Win; WIN A DRY SKIN DUO

Article excerpt

CETAPHILA[R] RESTORADERMao has been developed by dermatologists and especially formulated for use by those that suffer from eczema. The advanced formulations and patented technology help restore the skin's natural moisture barrier and protect it against dryness.

The innovative CetaphilA[R] RESTORADERMao Skin Restoring Body Wash & Moisturiser formulas include filaggrin breakdown products -- proteins which have both been shown to be depleted in sufferers of eczema and those who suffer from dry, itchy or irritated skin.

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a recurring, non-infectious, inflammatory skin condition that affects a staggering one in three Australians at some stage throughout their lives.
