Sufficient lipids will combat dryness
It is because of the lack of moisture that dry skin is so sensitive. NIVEA products address this problem. To best address dry skin, it is important to improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture. This can be done in particular by strengthening the skin’s natural protective barrier. Nurturing ingredients that add oils to the skin are especially beneficial to this protective barrier. It is therefore advisable to use skin care products containing oils during your morning and evening skin care routine. Additional moisturising products are also important.
In order to maintain its own (protective) functions, your skin generally requires both an optimum level of moisture and an intact (lipid) barrier. Depending on the skin type, it is therefore advisable to look for different care properties in your skin care products. Dry skin refers to skin that is lacking in both moisture and lipids.
Skin is rough and chapped with fine pores, it cracks easily and is often tight. Dry skin also becomes itchy easily and can be sensitive to temperature changes. Dry skin becomes a problem especially in air-conditioned rooms or in the winter. The skin lacks moisture and “fats” (skin lipids). In addition to providing the skin with the ideal moisturiser, it is therefore important to build up the skin’s protective lipid barrier again.
The best advice is to use a rich moisturiser that restores to the skin what it lacks – moisture & fats (lipids), which also ensure that the skin can then better retain the moisture it receives by strengthening the important barrier function.
In order to provide dry skin with sufficient moisture, we recommend that you use day and night care products that contain fats. Moisturising substances are particularly important. The drier your skin is, the richer the care product should be.
