Make A Great Impression!

Beautiful, smooth skin does not happen by chance. With effective care products, you can get to grips with the appearance of unpleasant bumps on your bottom, legs and stomach.


How does cellulite occur?

Over 80 per cent of women suffer from cellulite. The skin’s fat cells are responsible for the appearance of cellulite, as they move upwards through the connective tissue. Why is so-called orange-peel skin primarily a female problem? A woman’s skin contains a lot more fat cells, the connective tissue is more elastic and the skin softer, meaning that the changes are more clearly visible.


What conditions encourage the appearance of cellulite?

  • Genetic predisposition: A weak connective tissue is often hereditary. 
  • Excess weight: A few extra pounds are not the key factor, but do promote the occurrence of cellulite. 
  • Hormonal fluctuations: Menstruation, pregnancy or the menopause promote the storage of fat in our cells. 
  • Lack of exercise: Sport not only tones the skin, it also increases well-being. 
  • Unhealthy diet and lifestyle: Banish very fatty and sugary foods from your diet and avoid alcohol, cigarettes and too much stress. 
  • Sunbeds and solariums: UV light damages the connective tissue, meaning that the fat cells stand out more easily on the surface of the skin.


The formula for firm skin

Thanks to Q10, creatine and L-carnitine, the new “energy complex” stimulates the conversion of fatty acids into energy*. The result: the skin cells’ energy is increased*. This has an effect on the regeneration, repair and division of the cells. The innovative formulas of NIVEA Q10 Firming Body Lotion and NIVEA Q10 Firming Body Milk have been proven to boost the skin’s firmness in 2 weeks – making your skin softer, firmer and full of energy. For normal skin, we recommend Q10 Firming Body Lotion. For dry skin which needs extra special care, Q10 Firming Body Milk is the perfect choice.

Burdock fruit extract

Collagen is a structural protein and an essential component of our connective tissue and our skin. The elastic collagen fibres form a supportive corset for our cells. However, from our mid-20s, our body reduces its production of collagen. UV radiation and other environmental influences also cause the elastic fibres to degrade. Anti-cellulite care products with burdock fruit extract can have a positive effect on the body’s own collagen production and also firm the skin.


Argan Oil

The oil is extracted from the fruit of the argan tree, one of the oldest trees in the world. Cosmetic formulations with a high vitamin E content can help to protect the cell walls, and they also have a vitalising and moisturising effect. The firming body care product Pure & Natural from NIVEA contains organic argan oil. It firms the skin and makes it smooth and supple.


Coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine and creatine

This energy complex stimulates the cell metabolism – as proven with in-vitro testing. The formula supports cell regeneration, stimulates the regeneration of cells and improves the skin’s appearance. This has an effect on the regeneration, repair and division of the cells. The firming Body Lotion Q10 and Body Milk Q10 from NIVEA keep your skin elastic. The formula with Q10 massage pearls contained in the new NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion ensure your skin feels toned, even in the shower.


The best method for combating cellulite is a combination of exercise, a healthy diet and care products. If you want to maintain your skin’s elasticity in the long term, it’s best to start early and take preventative measures.

4 tips for beating cellulite!

  1. Switch between hot and cold showers: encourage your blood circulation and boost your fat metabolism with the warm/cold stimulation.
  2. Massages are effective anti-cellulite measures: stimulate your circulation and the lymph flow – you’ll be rewarded with firm skin.
  3. Keep moving: take regular walks, take the stairs instead of the lift or ride your bike into work.
  4. Balanced diet: calcium strengthens the connective tissue – bear in mind the high level of calcium in mineral water and eat yoghurt and cheese. Avoid foods that contain a lot of sugar.


Your anti-cellulite training programme

Sitting down for long periods of time – in the office, in your car or on the sofa – encourages the formation of cellulite. Get moving! A combination of endurance and muscle training breaks down fat and strengthens muscles. Yoga is also a great part of your anti-cellulite programme. Isometric exercises are ideal for every day: tense your bottom muscles and hold the tension for a few seconds or brace your feet firmly on the ground.
