NIVEA has a range of skin care products specifically designed to replace what your sensitive skin is missing, keeping it moist and soothed.
What does sensitive skin look like? Visible signs such as redness, swelling or dryness associated with roughness or flaking skin, are particularly noticeable when you have sensitive skin. These are often accompanied by less visible subjective sensations such as surface tightness, itching, burning or even stinging. Sensitive skin can affect all areas of the body, but especially the face. Wherever you are affected, finding a suitable sensitive skincare routine is crucial to managing it.
There are some similarities to other skin conditions that accompany a lack of moisture, like dry skin. The effectiveness of your skin's function depends on enzyme activity, which is often also reducing in sensitive skin. As a result, the skin's natural barrier is affected resulting in lost moisture and increased penetration from irritants. The corneal layer is also often thinner and nerve endings are more sensitive.
