Many people suffer from dry skin in the winter months; some have an inherent predisposition to dry skin or want to provide their skin with a great deal of care and attention the whole year round. To prevent dry skin you should apply a nourishing body lotion or body milk every day – preferably directly after showering or taking a bath. It is true that this takes a little time, but it is worth it and your skin will thank you. Taking care of skin care under the shower really quickly is made possible by NIVEA In-shower Body Lotion. The innovative formula of NIVEA In-shower products is activated by water – there is no longer any need to apply more body lotion after drying. The elbows, knees and shins are areas that suffer particularly from dehydrated skin. The reason for this is that the skin has very few sebaceous glands in these areas and very little subcutaneous tissue. The skin on these areas therefore needs a great deal of care especially in winter, when the sebaceous glands produce less oil.
