Body Care

Great looking skin can be easy to achieve by looking after your health and fitness, following a skincare routine and by finding products that suit your skin type.

Best Body Moisturiser

So what is the best body moisturiser? The best body moisturisers hold water in the outermost layer of your skin, keeping it soft and hydrated. Moisturisers also act like a barrier to protect our skin from damage. The ingredients that help moisturisers accomplish this include shea butter, UVA and UVB Filters and formulas like NIVEA’s Hydra IQ that supports the skin's own water channels to enhance your natural moisturisation.

Nivea Creme Versus Nivea Soft

Nivea Creme is a water-in-oil emulsion, meaning it contains many water droplets embedded in oil. As a result, your skin first receives intensive care from the outer oil phase and then is supplied with moisture.

In contrast, Nivea Soft is an oil-in-water emulsion: Small oil droplets are embedded in water. Therefore first the outer water phase of Nivea Soft absorbs quickly into the skin, making the skin feel refreshingly moist. Then fine oil droplets care for the skin.

Cellulite and Stretch Marks

Even though cellulite is unattractive, seemingly unnecessary and cause for lots of frustration, it is technically harmless and does not negatively affect your health.

Cellulite also affects up to 90 percent of women regardless of weight, size or ethnic background so you’re certainly not alone.

Stretch marks are another annoying and unwanted skin condition we have to face. Men and women both experience stretch marks. It can be caused by occurrences like putting on or losing weight, going through puberty, pregnancy and simply from growing a bit too fast for your skin to catch up. Understanding how stretch marks are caused is the first step you can take in trying to avoid them.
