How to choose a Nivea face wash
The essence of a facial cleanser is to remove dirt, sweat and makeup without completely drying out the skin.
First, note that many products are made for specific skin types. Some help with heavier cleansing while others are better at protecting delicate skin. Here’s how to choose depending on your skin type.
How to choose Nivea face wash for dry facial skin
Dry skin is difficult to moisturize because it lacks lipids (fats), water, or both. Your skin may feel tight and look flaky. Often, dryness or symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema worsen during the winter. When winter hits, switch to an oil-based cleanser and a heavier face cream to moisturize multiple times throughout the day as needed.
If you have dry skin, look for cream or milk-based cleansers to retain your precious oils and prevent further drying.
How to choose Nivea face wash for oily facial skin
Oily skin overproduces sebum and is more prone to breakouts but retains moisture fairly well. We do not fully understand the relationship between sebum and acne development. Acne is affected by many factors, including genes and hormones, so the best thing to do about it is to work with a dermatologist and wash your face properly.
For oily skin, choose an oil-free foaming cleanser that won’t clog pores but also contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. This may help prevent acne.
How to choose Nivea face wash for combination skin
For many people, different areas of your skin can be normal, dry, or oily. The most common oily areas are the forehead, nose, and chin (nicknamed the “T-zone”), while the cheeks, neck, and eye area tend to be dry or normal. It is recommended to choose a mild cleanser that is not too heavy on the skin and does not remove a lot of sebum. You will know that the product is not suitable for you if your face is left with a feeling of “tough” after washing.
How to choose Nivea face wash for sensitive facial skin
Most people will have reactions of varying severity to specific cosmetics, soaps, lotions, and other common household products and then think they have sensitive skin. However, this is not necessarily the case. Sometimes the annoyance is a matter of overusing a particular product or simply using the wrong product for them. Check with your dermatologist or immunologist to run patch tests to see what might irritate your skin if you’re unsure or think you might have sensitive skin.
In most cases, people with true skin sensitivity also have skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis, among others. They tend to have a thinner outer layer of skin that is easily irritated and easily reactive. Stay away from products that contain fragrances or alcohols, and look for “soothing” ingredients like green tea polyphenols, chamomile, and aloe. In general, the fewer ingredients on the label, the better. Some active ingredients such as lipoic acid, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid are well-known skin irritants.
How to choose Nivea face wash for normal facial skin
This type of skin becomes neither very oily nor very dry. Most cleansers will work for you, but as with combination skin, look for mild cleansers that remove dirt and oil but retain the natural sebum you have. The usual recommendation is a neutral cleanser, but I encourage you to try a variety of gentle cleansing products—be it a gel, cream, or foam.
