For dehydrated, sensitive skin
Eucerin Aquaporin Active for dry skin is an innovative face moisturiser that enhances the skin’s own hydration system and leaves skin supple, smooth and radiant.
Skin needs water to work efficiently and effectively. Well hydrated skin is smooth and supple and looks radiant. When skin’s natural protection barrier is compromised, it loses moisture and becomes dehydrated. Dehydrated skin looks dull, feels tight and is unable to keep external irritants at bay. It becomes sensitive as a result. Intense, long-lasting hydration is necessary to keep skin looking and feeling its best.
Most moisturisers improve skin hydration by limiting the evaporation of water from the skin and/or by binding moisture in to the outer layer of the skin with humectants such as Glycerin. Skin also has its own hydration system – the Aquaporins. These are microscopic channels that transport water between skin cells and support skin hydration from within. Eucerin Aquaporin Active enhances their natural strength. The formula contains Gluco Glycerol, a state-of-the-art hydrating ingredient, which is proven to increase the number of Aquaporins in the skin. This means that, in addition to limiting evaporation and binding water into the outer layers of skin, Eucerin Aquaporin Active supports skin’s own hydration system.
The velvety texture of Eucerin Aquaporin Active for dry skin provides intense, 24-hour hydration as is quickly absorbed by the skin. It relieves skin tightness and leaves skin smooth and supple. Eucerin Aquaporin Active is clinically and dermatologically proven to be compatible with sensitive skin and is free from fragrance or parabens.

How should I prepare my skin before using Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin?
Start your skincare routine by cleansing your face thoroughly but gently with Eucerin DermatoClean Mild Cleansing Milk. Follow with Eucerin DermatoClean Clarifying Toner.

Why should I integrate sun care for my face into my daily routine?
It is very important to protect facial skin from the sun. It’s thinner and more sensitive to UVA and UVB radiation than the skin on the rest of the body. And, because it isn’t protected by clothing, our face is exposed to the sun all year round. Prolonged UV exposure also decreases aquaporin activity, causing the skin to look and feel dry and dehydrated. Sun protection can help you to avoid cellular DNA damage, photoageing and hyperpigmentation.
Why does sensitive and dehydrated skin need special sun care?
Skin is often sensitive or dehydrated because its natural barrier is compromised. As a result, it is more reactive to sunlight and more susceptible to sun damage. Sunlight can cause sensitive skin to dehydrate further, aggravating symptoms and making it to look and feel drier than before. It is a good idea to use products that have been specially formulated for sensitive skin because they are less likely to trigger a reaction. Eucerin Aquaporin Active with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types offers effective protection against UV-induced skin damage. For higher protection, try Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF30.
