Are you cleansing all wrong?
A cleansing routine that doesn’t suit your skin can dry it out and leave it feeling tight and uncomfortable. This is because a lot of cleansers – often those containing soap – strip the skin of its natural oils.
The new NIVEA Creme Care Facial Cleansing range has been designed to combat this by caring for the skin and protecting its natural moisture balance, preventing skin from drying out and leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
