Smooth skin tips - radiance starts within

Find out how to get glowing skin by making small changes to your lifestyle - from sport all the way through to your skincare routine.

4 natural ways to get smooth skin

1. Steaming

Steaming your face over a bowl of water is a great way to exfoliate the skin in a gentle way. The steam also hydrates to give you smoother-feeling skin.

2. Face masks

Face masks help to clear the pores and remove any stubborn dirt on the top layer of your skin. This deep cleansing increases the blood flow, giving you smoother-looking skin.

3. Healthy diet

They say you are what you eat. Having a healthy diet certainly shows on your skin. Green leafy vegetables and foods packed with omega-3 fatty acids, such as avocados and salmon, moisturize your skin from within.

4. Exercise

As with face masks, exercise helps to increase the blood circulation, making your skin look healthier.

Exfoliate your way to smooth skin

One of the most effective ways to get radiant skin is through exfoliating. The reason being that scrubs such as NIVEA Skin Refining Scrub remove dead skin cells and increase blood circulation. Moisturizing the new skin underneath helps to keep everything baby soft.


The choices you make on a daily basis can have an impact on your appearance. Too many late nights, fast food or lack of exercise can leave your skin looking lifeless. Taking small steps to look after your body can make a big difference in your overall health and that of your skin.


Unfortunately, chocolate bars and chips are not as good for you as they taste. Processed food, sugar and artificial colours and flavourings wreak havoc on your whole body, not just your skin. Eating wholefoods gives you a clearer, smoother complexion - and that’s even before your make-up.


Just like lack of sleep, stress will show on your skin. Whether it is in the form of breakouts or a lacklustre complexion, stress is hard to hide. Including me time in your routine every day helps to bring radiance back to your skin. It can be as simple as a candlelit bath or some yoga.

Skin type

Genetics also play a part in the appearance of your skin. If you have dry skin, it is unlikely to look as smooth as someone with combination skin, unless you work at it. NIVEA Creme is dry skin’s best friend. With regular use, it will have your whole body feeling softer and smoother.

Skincare routine

The right skincare routine can be a complete turnaround for your skin. If you are using the wrong products for your skin type, your body will usually tell you. As a general rule, cleansing and moisturising twice a day with regular exfoliation make the basis of every skincare routine.

Smooth skin tips - your skincare routine

Whether you are a stay-at-home mum or on the 9 to 5, we have ideas to help you fit caring for your skin around your busy schedule.

Time out - how to get glowing skin

When did you last have some me-time? Setting aside some of your weekends just for yourself should not make you feel guilty.

In fact, it could make you feel much better in yourself and ready to tackle all of the next week’s tasks.

Relaxing in a candlelit bath with some music or your favorite relaxing radio station can be a great way to relieve the stresses of the week.

Massaging some lotion into your skin afterwards not only helps you feel good, it makes your skin look good, too. NIVEA Oil in Lotion Cherry Blossom intensely moisturizes the skin while relaxing those tired muscles.

Our smooth skin tip for busy women

Whether you have to rush to work or sort out the kids’ lunchboxes, every little helps. With NIVEA’s shower gels, you don’t have to sacrifice your skincare routine - no matter how busy you are. Once you are dry, you can just get dressed and go. No stickiness, just smooth skin.


Cleansing your face and body helps to remove the dirt from the day as well as any dead skin cells. So it is no surprise that it should be part of your daily skincare routine. Cleansing also removes excess oil and can avoid blackhead build-up - both of which are key for smooth, soft skin.


Exfoliating is like having a spa day at home. It leaves your skin feeling fresh, invigorated and baby soft. Don’t forget that your body can benefit from exfoliating, too, with NIVEA Skin Refining Scrub. This is perfect if you are short of time, as it cleanses and exfoliates as one.


Body lotion products are the convenient way to keep your skin smooth and cared for. Simply apply a moisturising body lotion right after your morning shower – your skin will thank you for it with a long-lasting soft skin feeling.

Wear sunscreen

UV rays can dry out your skin if you don’t stay protected, leaving you with rough, flaky patches or redness. Wearing sunscreen such as NIVEA SUN Protect & Moisture Sun Lotion not only protects the skin from sunburn, it also helps to prevent wrinkles and visible signs of aging.
