Best Sunscreen


The sun is good for our health but too much will cause our skin stress, or lead to sunburn or rapid skin ageing. NIVEA sun care products help to prevent this from happening, and there are a range of products suitable for babies, children and adults.


Which is the best sunscreen for my skin type?

Most day creams and moisturising products come with SPF, but it’s best to add an extra type on top of your normal moisturiser if you’re spending a long time in the sun, swimming, or doing a lot of physical activity. Try to get sunscreen with the highest possible SPF.

If you have oily skin and you’re worried about sunscreen being too heavy, then try Protect & Light Feel Daily Face Veil SPF30, or NIVEA Sun Light Feel Everyday Sunscreen Lotion SPF30. Both have been made to provide protection from the sun, but are lighter than other kinds of sunscreen.

NIVEA also have a range of sunscreens specially made for children. To save time and effort, use the Kids Caring Sunscreen Spray, or Kids Caring Roll On Sunscreen Lotion.


Tips about correct sunscreen and sun protection

Protection and care

NIVEA Moisturising Sunscreen lotion not only protects your skin in the short term, but also offers long-lasting care. High-quality ingredients ensure your skin stays hydrated and protected in the sun. The highly effective UVA/UVB protection system ensures immediate and long-lasting protection from sunburn and premature skin ageing.

What is the best way to apply sunscreen?

All exposed areas on your body and face should be covered with sunscreen and the correct amount to cover an adult’s entire body is approx. 35mL.

Don’t forget to always use other ways to protect your skin – clothing, hats and sunnies. Pay particular attention to the nose, shoulders, ears, chest and head, which should be thoroughly covered with lotion with the highest possible SPF. We also recommend that you re-apply sunscreen every two hours, and immediately after sweating, swimming and towel drying off.

Can I extend the period of sun protection by ‘topping up’ the sunscreen?

The protective effect cannot be extended. Once you have selected an SPF, this, along with your own natural protection time, will determine how long you can stay out in the sun without damaging your skin. Regular reapplication (after drying off, swimming, etc.) helps to maintain the desired level of protection.

Always read the label. Use only as directed.
