When it comes to skincare there are so many options these days.
Just a wander down the aisles of your local pharmacy or supermarket will have you wondering what half the products are even for.
Starts at 60 chatted to Nivea skin expert Robyn Hutch to get her to answer some of our question, which might also answer a few of yours too.
Micellar Water is a relatively new innovation in the world of skincare. Micellar Water is made up of Micelles which, when applied to a cotton pad, attract make-up and dirt like a magnet off the skin. Micellar Water is perfect for toning and cleansing the skin and there’s no need to rinse afterwards. For those with mature skin, I recommend using Micellar Water alongside a nourishing moisturiser to replenish the moisture that the skin loses over time.
Products should be chosen based on the ingredients suitable for your skin type and skin needs. Mature skin can lack energy and hydration. To counteract that, those with mature skin types should look for products that include coenzyme Q10, creatine and hyaluronic acid. These elements are naturally found in young skin however, their levels decrease with age, leaving the skin prone to wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Creatine and hyaluronic acid have been incorporated in the formula for NIVEA’s Cellular Anti- Age Volume Filling Pearls, helping with regeneration and youthful looking skin.
Night time skincare is essential to maintaining an effective routine as your skin works harder to repair itself overnight. Therefore, a nourishing night cream can enhance skin regeneration while you sleep. Night cream intensely moisturises, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking young. Don’t forget to complement this with a day cream in the morning! We recommend using the NIVEA Cellular Anti-Age Skin Rejuvenation Day Cream and NIVEA Cellular Anti-Age Skin Rejuvenation Night Cream to complement NIVEA’s Cellular Anti-Age Volume Filling Pearls.
As you get older, your skin changes and develops different specific needs. For instance, the skin’s natural supply of coenzyme Q10, creatine and hyaluronic acid deplete. Therefore, it is crucial that you change your skincare products to support your skin through the ageing process as covered above. It might even be a matter of adding a product to your routine to add a that little bit more back to your skin.
Those areas can be drier than most regardless of age. We recommend using an intensive moisturiser to help restore hydration in your hands, feet and elbows, such as NIVEA Creme.
Apply a generous layer of NIVEA Creme on your feet before bed, pop on a pair of socks and leave overnight. Its thick consistency will deeply moisturise the feet, leaving them feeling soft. The protective layer also prevents loss of moisture by retaining it within the skin.
