NIVEA In-Shower Skin Con­di­tioner now comes with skin-nour­ish­ing benets, so you can shower your way to smoother and more lu­mi­nous skin.

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Nivea Special -

Time is a lux­ury for many of us, which is why NIVEA In-Shower Skin Con­di­tioner has been such a hit since its launch. Meant to be used in the shower af­ter cleans­ing, then rinsed off, it cuts out the ex­tra step of slather­ing on body lo­tion post-shower, but leaves skin feel­ing just as soft and pam­pered as a lo­tion does.

Now, the body con­di­tioner de­liv­ers even more: ac­cord­ing to NIVEA, its new launch, the In-Shower Whiten­ing Skin Con­di­tioner, $10.90 (250ml), prom­ises to hy­drate and “make the skin fairer”. It re­tains all the moisturising power of the orig­i­nal, but also con­tains ex­tracts of the camu camu plant, which is rich in the an­tiox­i­dant vi­ta­min C. The new prod­uct tar­gets 10 signs of dull and dam­aged skin, in­clud­ing itch­ing, flak­ing, dull­ness, cracks and scratch marks. The brand says that it aims to help lighten your skin tone even as it mois­turises, from the very first shower on­wards.

So take your pick of NIVEA In-Shower Skin Con­di­tion­ers – along­side the Whiten­ing ver­sion, there’s one for nor­mal skin (with Sea Min­er­als) and an in­ten­sive one for dry skin (with Almond Oil), $7.90 (250ml) or $10.90 (400ml) each.

Un­der­stand your skin’s con­di­tion and needs by get­ting it checked with a skin-anal­y­sis ma­chine. SK-II coun­ters of­fer a com­pli­men­tary ser­vice where they use their Magic Ring de­vice to see how well your skin is do­ing in terms of tex­ture, firm­ness, wrin­kles, spots and ra­di­ance. With the re­sults and in­for­ma­tion col­lected from its data­base of cus­tomers, it can even tell you the age of your skin.

Pamper Your Neck and Decol­letage

Skin at the neck is thin­ner than fa­cial skin, which is why lines tend to ap­pear ear­lier on the decol­letage. Take bet­ter care of this del­i­cate area by ex­tend­ing to it the ap­pli­ca­tion of all your sk­in­care prod­ucts – cleanser, serum, mois­turiser and sun­screen.

Mist Away

Face mists re­fresh your skin, but as they eva­po­rate, they take away some mois­ture too. To pre­vent this, blot off ex­cess mist from your face af­ter a few min­utes. Bet­ter yet, dab on mois­turiser af­ter­wards.

Keep Your Hands Away Stop Purs­ing Your Lips

Just like re­peated move­ments around the eyes cause ne lines and crow’s feet, purs­ing your lips when you speak, sip through straws, drink hot bev­er­ages or smoke can cause wrin­kles to form ear­lier around the mouth. So stop purs­ing them – and stop smok­ing! Al­ler­gens, bac­te­ria and viruses trans­fer from your hands to your face ev­ery time you touch it. If you are prone to break­outs, ex­ist­ing acne-caus­ing bac­te­ria can spread to other parts of your face, to­gether with ex­cess oil and dead skin cells, caus­ing more pim­ples. Eczema can also be ag­gra­vated this way. Also, rub­bing your eyes has­tens the on­set of wrin­kles, and breaks the cap­il­lar­ies, in­ten­si­fy­ing the ap­pear­ance of dark un­der-eye cir­cles.
