Soaps and facial toners or heavily foaming makeup removal products containing alcohol may dissolve natural oils from the skin and destroy skin’s natural protective barriers. Cleanse your skin with extra gentle care, for example with a lipid balancing cleansing milk.
Exfoliating is a tricky balance for dry skin. You don’t want to overdo it and further dry the skin out. However, using a gentle exfoliator once a week, such as our NIVEA Gentle Exfoliating Scrub will buff away dead skin cells and allow serums and moisturisers to deeply penetrate the skin for a more hydrating effect. Plus, it’s enriched with moisturising Vitamin E to help skin keep its natural moisture balance.
Serums are a great way to seal an extra surge of moisture within your skin. Look for ones with vitamin C or hyaluronic acid. As a humectant, hyaluronic acid pulls water into the skin and also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
