Simple and effective care tips for very dry skin everyday

  • Don’t shower or bathe for too long in water that is too hot – 32 degrees is a sufficient water temperature. 
  • Cleanse your skin in the shower with care products developed for very dry skin such as NIVEA Creme Sensitive Shower Cream range . 
  • Moisturise on a daily basis with the best moisturiser for very dry skin. Rub in plenty of cream on especially dry skin areas such as the elbows, knees and shins, and let the body lotion absorb before you get dressed. 
  • Always rub cream into your hands after you wash them. Hand creams with macadamia oil are absorbed quickly and provide very dry skin with intensive care. 
  • Set up air humidifiers during the winter months. The air humidity in internal rooms should ideally be between 50 and 70 per cent.
