Everyday simple and effective care tips for very dry skin

  • Don’t shower or spend too long in the bath in water that is too hot – 32 degrees is a good water temperature. 
  • Cleanse your skin in the shower with care products developed for very dry skin such as NIVEA Creme Sensitive Cream Shower or Natural Oil Shower Oil. 
  • Make sure to moisturise on a daily basis with the best moisturiser for very dry skin. Rub in plenty of cream on especially dry skin areas such as the elbows, knees and shins, and let the cream absorb fully before you get dressed. 
  • Always rub a hand cream onto your hands after you wash them. Hand creams with macadamia oil are absorbed quickly and provide very dry skin with intensive care. 
  • Set up air humidifiers during the winter months. Recommended air humidity in internal rooms should ideally be between 50 and 70 per cent.
