Skin Care Tips For Beautiful Glowing Skin

Find your skin type

Here at NIVEA, we understand that different complexion types have different needs. Great looking skin can be so easy to achieve, once you know how to care for your specific skin type.

If you’re asking, “What is my skin type?”, a simple skin test by your dermatologist or skin expert can help you determine whether you have dry, oily & impure, normal & combination, or sensitive skin. Or use our Complexion Types tool.

Beautiful skin begins by developing a care routine that maintains your skin’s natural balance, and choosing to use products that are made specifically for your complexion.

Perfect skin health is a real science for us: it’s why we invest heavily in skin research. Our experts have put together these healthy tips by NIVEA to help you find the best possible care for your skin.

Learn more about the different skin types and how to care for your own skin complexion type through our expert advice and useful information articles below.

Our Skin: The Body’s Protection

Face Care

Beauty is not just skin deep. Being healthy and happy radiates from within us, but that doesn’t mean our skin can’t use a little help. Whether it’s taking care of blemishes, like blackheads and pimples, or you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, a regular face care regime is the way to go.

Our Face Care Tips includes information on anti-ageing, pimples, moisturisiation, cleansing, skin around the eyes, your lips and a few DIY face mask recipes.

Sun Safety

While there are clear physical and mental benefits of spending time in the sun, excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can accelerate the ageing process as well as increase the chances of developing sun spots, moles and even skin cancer. So, it’s very important to make sure you are protected from the sun by using a high SPF sunscreen to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.

Being the first to produce sunscreen with UV filters, NIVEA has done extensive research on sun safety. We are here to help you learn more about the effects of sunburn and the best thing to do if you do get burnt. We also have tips on general sun safety for you and your children.

Beauty Tips: True or False

Many skin care tips have been passed down from generation to generation, however with this sharing of knowledge a number of misconceptions have come to light.

We have collected a few of these common misconceptions, such as using toothpaste on pimples and skin becoming addicted to moisturiser, and put them to the test.

Because it has such a tough job to do, the skin often gets dry and flaky. That’s why it’s important to exfoliate regularly. Exfoliation helps to remove impurities and dead skin cells to unclog pores and reveal the new, healthier skin underneath. This gives you a smoother and more radiant complexion.

Men's Skin Care

Best skin care for teens

Teens going through puberty have a myriad of body concerns to deal with. The hormonal changes in their body can wreak havoc on their skin and send their sebaceous glands into overdrive. The glands increase their production of sebum (natural oil secreted by the sebaceous glands) which leads to blocked pores and varying degrees of acne. These breakouts are often the first trigger for teens to consider caring for their skin regularly.

why Use Preservatives and Parabens?

Did you know that parabens are safe & tolerable substances that play an important and necessary role within NIVEA products? Many skin care products would quickly reach their best before date after opening if they did not contain preservatives. By using parabens, we can guarantee that the quality of our NIVEA products is maintained over a long period.

Find out what parabens are and how they’ve been used in skin care for over 80 years.
