The NIVEA Sun UV Face Range offers light feeling UV sun protection for your face with a formulation to suit every individual’s unique requirements, including oily and blemish-prone skin.
What’s the must-have beauty skin saver that no woman should be without? An everyday sun protection for your face. While our body is covered by clothing, our facial skin is exposed daily to natural influences like sunlight, which accelerates ageing and causes pigmentation. Wearing a SPF 50 on the daily will guard your skin against dark marks and keep it looking youthful and radiant.
But what if you’ve got oily, blemish prone skin? Will sun protection make your skin shiny or cause blemishes? Everyone’s facial skin is different, so the trick is to find the right sun protection formulation for your particular skin.
The facial skin requires completely different care and protection as it is more exposed to the sun than other parts of our body. “Its epidermis is much thinner and more sensitive than the skin on our body. It is put under high mechanical stress resulting for example in laughter lines. And our facial skin is always unprotected against natural influences like temperature or sunlight,” explains Dr. Dominik Göddertz, Lab Manager for NIVEA Sun. “All of these factors can cause premature skin ageing and make our facial skin more prone to pigmentation disorders than the skin on our body. Insufficient protection against UV rays can even result in skin diseases like melanoma.”
The NIVEA Sun UV Face range offers ‘barely there’ sun protection which absorbs instantly and is light enough to wear under your make-up. Choose one of three products that best suits your needs, whether its mattifying shine control, anti-age care or a tinted sun cream you’re looking for. Either way, you’re guaranteed 0% sticky feeling, and effective, high SPF 50 protection.

An oily skin calls for a mattifying sun care formula which absorbs the excess oil from the surface of the skin and controls shine.
This is exactly what the NIVEA Sun UV Face Shine Control SPF 50 offers – in addition to immediate and reliable sun protection. It feels incredibly light and non-greasy and remains invisible even on very dark skin tones. The hydrating formula with naturally derived antioxidants mattifies instantly and keeps skin mattified – making it ideal for everyday use.
Anti-Ageing sun protection & care
Excessive sun exposure not only causes sunburn but also premature skin ageing (loss of skin volume, wrinkles, pigmentation and elasticity decline). The good news is that, with the right face sunscreen, you can delay this.
The moisturising NIVEA Sun UV Face Q10 Anti-Age & Anti-Pigments SPF 50 contains Coenzyme Q10 (Q10), found naturally in the skin which helps skin fight premature skin ageing, as well as naturally derived antioxidants which help the skin to protect itself against sun damage.
Sun protection with natural built-in coverage
Reliable sun protection or perfectly even looking skin? With the new NIVEA Sun UV Face BB SPF 50+, there is no need to decide between the two. The tinted face sunscreen moisturises and adds a touch of colour for even and healthy-looking skin.
Unlike a normal foundation, it leaves the skin with 0% sticky feeling, providing instant very high protection against the sun. The tinted formula adapts to your individual skin tone and covers blemishes discreetly. The formula with naturally derived antioxidants provides very high levels of protection against premature skin ageing caused by too much sun exposure.
NIVEA Sun, the World’s No. 1 Sun Care Brand*, provides effective and immediate, balanced UVA/UVB protection which is COLIPA (European Personal Care Association) and CANSA approved. The products are dermatologically approved for skin compatibility and have an ophthalmologically tested eye-friendly formula so they do not burn the eyes.
