The cold clear days of winter bring in uncomfortable dryness to the skin, for some people just a general tight, dry feeling. Naturally this would mean changing our skin care routine and using more butters and oils that care for dry skin.

NIVEA has always been part of my beauty routine, I swear by it. From face products, to shower care and definitely lotions and creams. Having used NIVEA for so long, I know which products are best for me to use during the various seasons.

During winter, my skin gets very dry and tight so it is important for me to use a thick and rich moisturizer, one that does not work only on the surface of the skin but deep within the skin cells, ensuring that my skin is moisturised throughout the day. This is why I switch to NIVEA Rich Nourishing Body Lotion.  Rich in texture, insures smoothness and strengthens & protects the skin from dehydration – perfect for Dry to Very Dry Skin!

To complete my winter skin care routine, I use the NIVEA Q10 Plus Firming Body Oil. Which nourishes the skin intensively and reduces the appearance of stretch marks, it also firms the skin in 2 WEEKS.

(TIP: Limit your time in the tub / shower – Although long baths and showers seem appealing, it’s not best for your skin. You don’t want to wash away the protective oils which help lock moisture in)
