For dehydrated, sensitive skin
Eucerin Aquaporin Active for normal to combination skin is a refreshing face moisturiser that enhances skin’s own hydration system and leaves skin supple, smooth and radiant.
Our 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 and 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. Our skin also has its own hydration system – the Aquaporins. They transport water between skin cells and support skin’s hydration from within. Eucerin Aquaporin Active enhances their natural strength. The formula contains Gluco Glycerol, a state-of-the-art hydrating ingredient, which has 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 enhances skin’s own hydration system.
The light, refreshing texture of Eucerin Aquaporin Active for normal to combination skin provides intense, 24-hour hydration and is easily absorbed by the skin. It relieves tightness and leaves skin smooth and supple. Eucerin Aquaporin Active is clinically and dermatologically proven to be compatible with sensitive skin and doesn’t contain fragrance or parabens.

Start your skincare routine by cleansing your face thoroughly but gently with Eucerin DermatoClean Refreshing Cleansing Gel. Follow with Eucerin DermatoCleanClarifying 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 dehydrated and sensitive skin need special sun care?
Skin is often dehydrated or sensitive 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. For normal daylight UV rays try Eucerin Aquaporin Active with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types and, for higher protection, Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF50+.
