Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types

For dehydrated, sensitive skin

A unique moisturiser that provides intense, 24-hour hydration to dehydrated, sensitive skin.

Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection is an innovative face moisturiser that enhances skin’s own hydration system to leave skin supple, smooth and radiant. At the same time it protects skin from UVB and UVA-induced damage.

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. When 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 it 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 microscopic channels 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 enhances skin’s own moisture supply.

The velvety texture of Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types provides intense, 24-hour hydration and is easily absorbed by the skin. It relieves tightness and leaves skin smooth and supple. SPF 25 and UVA protection also effectively prevent UV-induced skin damage. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE is clinically and dermatologically proven to be compatible with sensitive skin and is fragrance and paraben free.

Your daily skincare routine

Remove any waterproof eye make-up with Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover, then cleanse skin thoroughly using Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Mild Cleansing Milk (if you have dry skin) or Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Refreshing Cleansing Gel (for normal to combination skin).

First apply any special care products you are using, such as Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care.

Follow with Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types in the morning before exposure to sunlight. Use a product without SPF for overnight. Try either Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for normal to combination skin or Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin depending on your skin type.

If your skin is going to be exposed to high levels of sun, additional protection is recommended. Try Eucerin Sun Creme SPF 50+ for dry skin and Eucerin Sun Fluid Mattifying SPF 50+ for normal and combination skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pick the right moisturiser for me?

Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types is particularly good for those with sensitive skin who are looking for an intensely hydrating face moisturiser with added SPF. You can find information on alternative moisturisers, sun care products and different skin types throughout our website, but if you are unsure, we recommend that you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for a face-to-face diagnosis.

How should I prepare my skin before using Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types?

Start your morning skincare routine by cleansing your face thoroughly but gently with Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Mild Cleansing Milk or Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Refreshing Cleansing Gel. Follow with Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Clarifying Toner. Once your skin is clean, it will be better prepared to absorb the active ingredients in Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types. We recommend that you only use products containing SPF in the daytime. Follow your evening cleansing routine with Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin.

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. Prorogued 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 guards skin against UVB and UVA rays. For higher protection try Eucerin Sun face products with SPF 30 or 50+.
