When building your best skin care routine, include these four crucial steps as a base:

Woman cleansing face

1. Cleansing

Cleansing is the most important step in your face care routine.

Before anything else, refresh and prepare your skin with an effective cleanser suited to your skin type – morning and night.

Woman toning her face

2. Toning

If your skin is on the oily or impure side, consider adding a toner into your daily skin care routine as well.

Dab some gentle toner onto a cotton pad, and wipe over your face following cleansing. Toner helps remove the remaining traces of your cleanser and prepare your skin for your day or night cream and eye cream.

3. Day Cream or Night Cream

Day Cream
Before you apply any makeup or leave the house, complete your morning beauty routine with a day cream designed for your skin type.

Always choose a day cream with SPF to protect your face from the sun and if your complexion is looking a little dull, pick it up with a tinted day cream.

NIVEA’s Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturising Day Cream has a light pigmentation that enhances your natural skin tone and provides refreshing moisture.
Night Cream
Before you hop into bed, apply a nourishing night cream.

Your night skin care routine needs to support your skin as it heals and regenerates overnight.

With consistent use, NIVEA’s Cellular Hyaluron Filler Night Cream helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase firmness and improve your skin renewal while you sleep with hyaluronic acid and collagen booster.

4. Eye Cream

The skin around the eye is thinner than the rest of your skin, meaning aging starts to show here first.

Eye cream helps to fight these first fine lines and wrinkles.

After applying your day or night cream, gently pat your eye cream across the lower bone of your eye socket using your ring finger. Always work from the inner to the outer corner of the eye. Continue up to your eyebrow.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
