The right care for every skin type
Skin type 1: combination skin
Care tip: as the skin tends to be dehydrated, a day cream with plenty of moisture can be used.
Skin type 2: oily skin
Care tip: don’t squeeze the spots – this will cause them to become inflamed and will cause unsightly scars. Use products that are especially for impure skin, with ‘non-comedogenic’ formulas (this means that they prevent blackheads forming) and have anti-bacterial properties – like all the products for impure skin from NIVEA. You can be sure that these creams will not clog your skin’s pores. What’s more, they cover up small impurities and give the skin a slight matte effect.
Skin type 3: sensitive skin
Rough flakes often appear on the skin. Impurities such as spots are therefore less common.
Care tip: the skin needs to be supplied with sufficient moisture at all times. In this skin type, the skin’s natural oil and moisture content is very low, because the sebaceous gland performance is low. Use products for sensitive skin without additives such as perfume, for example mild Sensitive Day Care from NIVEA.
Skin type 4: normal skin
For this skin, you can use a tinted BB cream which not only evens out slight irregularities, but also provides your skin with moisture.
Teenage skin needs care
Beauty basics for teens
Step 1: Thoroughly cleanse your face
Wash your face daily with an anti-bacterial wash gels such as Anti-Blemish Daily Scrub or Anti-Blemish 3 in 1 Cleanser from NIVEA. It clears excess sebum and dead skin cells from the skin and prevents the growth of bacteria.For girls: it’s absolutely essential to thoroughly remove your make-up in the evenings.The NIVEA 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water is perfect for make-up removal whilst being gentle on the skin.
Don't over wash
Avoid pimple picking
Step 2: Cleanse your skin with facial toner
Facial toner dissolves excess oil in the pores and thus prevents new spots and blackheads from forming.
Step 3: Care for the skin
Wash your hands
Include SPF in your face care
Step 4: Intensive care for the skin
A nurturing mask soothes irritated skin and provides it with moisture. Clear-up strips keep the T-zone clean and fine-pored.
5 tips for pure skin
- Cleanse the skin regularly in the mornings and evenings. You can remove the oily layer in the meantime using a facial tissue. This allows you to remove excess sebum without stressing the skin.
- Don’t use hot water for facial cleansing. This stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more oil.
- If you have impurities, leave the toothpaste in the cupboard – instead, use an anti-spot product like Anti-Blemish 3in1 Cleanser from NIVEA, which you can also apply to individual spots overnight.
- Keep your hands away from your face. Otherwise your skin will constantly be irritated and bacteria will end up on the surface of the skin.
- Do sports and get plenty of exercise in the fresh air. This will get the blood flowing to your skin and give you a fresh complexion.
Remove spots properly
But if there really is no other way, don’t squeeze with just your fingers – put a clean handkerchief between the skin and your fingertips and only apply gentle pressure. Disinfect the area of skin affected afterwards so as to reduce the risk of infection.
Better yet, go to a beauty salon regularly. You can get your skin cleaned professionally there, meaning that spots will appear much less frequently.
Ideal care for all young skin types
3, 2, 1, go: a fresh start to the day!
Things are heating up
Important: wash every day. As you sweat at night, too, it’s best to have a quick shower in the morning. Use a deodorant to make sure you smell great throughout the day.
This will kill the bacteria responsible for the smell of sweat. It’s best to go for a deodorant that suits your own personal needs, such as Pure & Natural Action Spray from NIVEA, which is aluminium-free and offers 48-hour effective deodorant protection.
