What Skincare Type Are You?

Different skin types need different care in order to be radiantly beautiful.

Tailor-made care

Choosing the right care for your skin type is your way to get soft and beautiful skin. Tailor your selection of skincare products to the individual needs of your skin type.

What type of skin do you have?

  • Normal skin is naturally smooth and supple. Dry areas and feelings of tightness are not common in normal skin. It is almost perfect. Its ideal level of tightness makes it smooth and supple. It is not sensitive and has good blood circulation. But even normal skin needs moisture and protection to keep it looking healthy. You can use just a light moisturising lotion to nourish your normal skin to keep it soft and radiant.
  • Dry skin needs moisturising care tailored specifically to its needs, otherwise it can dry out and cause itchy areas. With this skin type, the shins and knees are specifically vulnerable.
  • Does your skin itch, feel uncomfortably tight and rough? This means you have very dry skin. It needs rich care to restore its natural protective barriers.
  • Sensitive skin can be recognised by redness, which can also occur as a reaction to incorrect care. In this case, choose a mild, pH-neutral care product.

Normal skin – gentle care keeps it in balance

Normal skin has a balanced moisture content. Even daily care with a gentle cream or lotion is enough to keep this skin type smooth and healthy.
dry skin

Dry skin needs lasting care

Dry skin has high care requirements. Its protective barriers are weakened very easily, allowing it to dry out and become chapped and raw. Rich creams and masks restore the protective lipid layer.


very dry

Very dry skin – protective care from NIVEA

Dry and very dry skin needs to be supplied with lipids and moisture so that it can restore its natural protective layer. Rich, intensive caring creams help it to do this.

Mature or sensitive skin types

Anti-ageing care products help to specifically maintain the elasticity of mature skin. Sensitive skin needs soft lotions to keep it in balance.
Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin – gentle care with a great effect

Sensitive skin needs to be nourished with extra care. Mild care stabilises the moisture content in sensitive skin and protects it from becoming irritated.
mature skin

Mature skin – care products from NIVEA ensure regeneration and elasticity

As we get older, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity. Choose the right care products, such as Q10 Firming Body Lotion, which has been enhanced with twice the quantity of Q10.
