We all desire beautiful skin – healthy, radiant and flawless skin and we can achieve this by putting in extra efforts in our daily skincare routines.

The facial skin is finer and more sensitive than the rest of the body, this is why taking care of the face is so important. We take care of our facial skin by cleansing it regularly, this is called Facial Cleansing; intensive cleaning of the skin. We do this both in the morning and at night to remove day-to-day build-up of make-up, germs and all types of dirt. Some of us assume that facial cleansing is a basic task, we assume that soap and water is enough, but water alone does not remove excess oils, dirt etc. – so this is why we invest in the right facial cleansing products, from facial cleansers & scrubs to day & night creams. But before choosing the right products to use, you need to know what skin type you are.
We distinguish between 3 different skin types:
– Normal skin (smooth, rosy, little pores)
– Dry skin (feeling of tightness, dry skin flakes)
– Combination skin (mixture of different skin types. Often oily in the T-zone and dry on the cheeks. The t-zone is also prone to blackheads, pimples & blemishes)
By knowing which skin type you are, you can access and choose the right products from the NIVEA cleansing range so you can start the process of cleansing your face. A simple 3, sometimes 4 step process that will leave you feeling beautiful and fresh.
