With award season upon us, we’re seeing our favourite celebrities looking flawless every time they step out on the red carpet. From wardrobe to hair and makeup, a lot of time and effort goes into each and every one of their award season looks. However, it’s the stars who have a perfect complexion and glow naturally that really shine.
To help emulate those glowing complexions, NIVEA, the brand with over 100 years of skin expertise, and its Skincare Expert, Robyn Hutch, are here to guide you in 5 simple steps on how to put in the extra effort where it really counts: your skin!
NIVEA Skincare Expert, Robyn Hutch, comments: “This season is all about achieving a no-makeup makeup look, allowing your natural beauty to shine through. We all know the stars spend hours in preparation for their walk down the red-carpet, but there’s no reason you can’t achieve the same look at home.“
Step 1: Scrub
For radiant and glowing skin, gently remove impurities and dead skin cells with a cleansing exfoliating scrub. During cleansing it is important to respect skin’s moisture balance to keep it fresh and hydrated all day long so exfoliate once or twice and week and apply in gentle circular motions. Choose a scrub with Vitamin E to give your skin an intense moisture boost and instant freshness.

Step 2: Tone
Toning will bring new life to your complexion, whether you have dry, normal or oily skin. Choose a cleansing toner that has been specially formulated with Vitamin E to gently revitalise and support your skin’s natural balance whilst enriching its healthy glow.

Step 3: Moisturise
Moisturising is essential to achieving a youthful complexion. Using a high quality moisturiser on a regular basis will help improve the way that your skin looks and feels. Look for products with Coenzyme Q10 as it will boost energy production to regenerate your skin cells for radiant, glowing skin.
Robyn’s recommendation: NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-wrinkle Day Cream.
Prices & Sizes: RRP $19.55 / 50mL
Step 4: Apply a light BB Cream
For a natural looking radiant complexion, apply a BB cream with just enough coverage to help even out your skin tone without using make-up. BB creams work to moisturise your skin, whilst the mineral oil free formula provides fast absorption and a matte finish.

Prices & Sizes: RRP $9.95 / 75mL
Step 5: Make-up removal
Makeup removal is one of the most important steps to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh and healthy. Micellar water is an ideal option as it effectively removes your make-up and cleanses whilst being kind to your skin. Micelles on a cotton pad work like a magnet lifting dirt and make-up away from your skin, so no vigorous rubbing or rinsing is required. Choose a Micellar Water that is also enriched with moisturising ingredients to leave your skin feeling supple, healthy and beautiful.
