Washing up too often can damage your skin, but only if you’re using the wrong cleanser. This is why athletes should have this cleansing bar with them at all times.
Training is a huge part of an athlete’s daily routine. Whether they train in the morning or afternoon (or both), an athlete will usually carve out big chunks of their day dedicated to the sport they are passionate about. And we aren’t just talking about professional athletes — casual and amateur athletes also dedicate a lot of time for their sports too.
While getting regular exercise is healthy for the body, one thing that some athletes might take for granted is the state of their skin. With consistent training also comes consistent washing, sometimes even twice a day, and this can sometimes lead to dry and unprotected skin — that is, without the right kind of cleanser.
Enter Cetaphil. This is why athletes need to have their Ultra Protect antimicrobial cleansing bar in their training bars.
Going to Bare with Cetaphil
Cetaphil treated us to a class in BARE so that we could test out their Ultra Protect antimicrobial cleansing bar for ourselves.
For those of you who may not know, BARE is a fitness studio in Metro Manila that offers high-intensity workout classes that combine HIIT and strength training using weights — what they refer to as the ‘world’s most effective science-backed workout’.
They offer two kinds of classes. Their ‘Lab’ classes are their strength workouts that focus on technical strength training to improve body composition and build muscle. On the other hand, their ‘Black’ classes, which is what Cetaphil had us try, are their calorie-torching workouts that combine cardio with functional strength routines using barbells. And yes, it truly did feel like a calorie-burner, as we cycled through various strength moves and treadmill intervals.
If you’re an athlete looking for a way to burn fat, build lean muscle, and increase your metabolism, either one of BARE’s classes is sure to put you in the right direction.
Thanks to the Black class, all the participants invited by Cetaphil worked up a good sweat (not to mention the endorphin rush). And this was the perfect setup for everyone to see what the Ultra Protect cleansing bar was all about.
Although cleansing oneself is a necessity, especially for athletes who frequently sweat during training, using harsh soaps or cleansers can chip away at the outer layer of the skin, which also acts as the protective layer, leaving the skin vulnerable. Washing too often can sometimes lead to very dry, inflamed, or even hypersensitive skin because of this.
But, athletes have no choice but to cleanse often. After all, no one wants to show up to work or to a dinner party all sweaty.
This is why Cetaphil’s Ultra Protect antimicrobial cleansing bar is the right soap for anyone who leads an active lifestyle. Cetaphil puts healthy skin at the top of their priorities, and with this, they have developed a cleanser that uses advanced technology to ensure skin hydration and protection, no matter how many times a day you use it to cleanse your skin.
Cetaphil Ultra Protect cleanses and protects your skin with 99.9% germ protection, keeps you intensely moisturized, and its 3D DERMA-MIMIC Technology and ingredients of Glycerin, Vitamin B5 & B3 are proven to effectively wash away bacteria while still respecting the skin’s moisture barrier.
After a sweaty and tough workout class with BARE, all the participants got to see the difference with Cetaphil for themselves.
With the Cetaphil Ultra Protect cleansing bar, now athletes don’t need to worry about their skin on top of all the other things they already worry about. Cetaphil will take care of your skin so that you’re free to simply do you.
The new Cetaphil Ultra Protect Antimicrobial Cleansing Bar is available at the official Cetaphil Philippines stores in Lazada and Shopee. You can also find Cetaphil products at Mercury Drug, Watsons’ stores, and supermarkets nationwide.
