Face Care Tips For Beautiful Healthy Skin

Find your best face

Beauty is not just skin deep. Being healthy and happy radiates from within us, but that doesn’t mean our skin can’t use a little help. Whether it’s taking care of blemishes, like blackheads and pimples, or you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, a regular, tailored face care regime is the way to go.

Because everyone is different, the first step is to identify your skin type and any trouble areas. The most common skin types are dry, sensitive, oily and combination.

Using the right day cream, night cream, eye cream, make-up remover, and toner for your skin type, age, and lifestyle is the best way to achieve clear skin and a bright, younger looking face.

Don’t forget: prevention is better than cure. Yes, it’s a cliché, but when it comes to face care, nothing is more important than protecting your skin from damaging UV rays. Be sun smart – wear good quality sunglasses, apply sunscreen regularly, and seek shade under a hat or a tree. Your face will thank you!

At NIVEA, we have a range of day creams, night creams, eye creams, make-up removers and toners for your skin type that provide deep moisture, invigoration, and SPF protection.

Moisturiser – Keeping Your Skin Soft and Supple

Moisturisers, especially those with SPF and UVA/UVB filters, help to protect and replenish our skin on a daily basis, and help us to maintain a healthy, radiant glow.

Because everyone is different, the first step to achieving healthy, hydrated skin is to identify your skin type and any trouble areas. Using the right day cream, night cream, eye cream, or tinted moisturiser for your skin type, age, and lifestyle is the best way to achieve clear skin and a bright, younger looking complexion.

Nothing makes us looks tired and worn out quite like panda eyes. Those tell-tale dark circles under the eyes can signal to everyone that we have been over-doing it. Never fear – there is a way to get rid of them!

The Causes
First, let’s think about why we get discolouration under the eyes. Most often it’s a lack of sleep but there are a few things which can make it worse. Here are some tips:

  • Remove all make-up before bed
  • Limit caffeine and alcohol
  • Don’t smoke
  • Take B6 vitamins to increase adrenal function
  • Eat your greens for calcium and magnesium

The Cures
Home cures are not a long term solution, but they can help. Try cool tea bags, cucumber slices, or even a frozen spoon on the affected area. It may reduce the puffiness.

An excellent face care regime is your best weapon against dark circles. Eat well, rest lots, and apply the war paint of a regenerating night cream or eye cream to conquer the dark circles for good!

Magnolia Bark Extract

Magnolia Extract

The Benefits of Magnolia Bark Extract
Magnolia bark extract has been used for centuries as a herbal remedy in traditional Chinese medicine. It has long been known for its high levels of organic compounds magnolol and honokiol - two substances with great anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

As well as this, magnolia bark extract has excellent antioxidant properties (up to 1000 times more potent than Vitamin E in antioxidants), meaning it can fight free radicals in the skin. Our testing at Beiersdorf shows that magnolia bark extract is one of the most powerful anti-wrinkle ingredients.

How it can help your skin
Our skin care experts have proven that magnolia bark extract can help to repair fine lines and reverse the early signs of wrinkles.

This traditional ingredient can increase your skin cells’ resistance to oxidative stress and inflammation. This action decelerates the ageing process and stalls the appearance of further wrinkles. Magnolia bark also helps fade dark spots, puffiness, and pigmentation, so it’s great for those trouble areas and dark circles under the eyes.
