    Protect your skin

    In the shadow

    UV-rays meet your skin in the shadow because the seawater reflects them. Hence, it is vital to use a sunscreen even in the shadows.

    After sun care

    Soothe sun-stressed skin

    UV-rays, heat and salt water can stress your skin during the day. That’s why you should always use an after sun lotion after a long day in the sun. It provides intense moisture and avoids flaking.

    Enhance your beautiful tan

    With healthy summer food

    A healthy and light nutrition also helps you to get a beautiful tan thanks to the vitamins and minerals in the food. Drink a lot of water to hydrate your skin and eat food with vitamins and minerals, e.g. watermelons and cherries.

Frequently Asked questions

1How do sun protection and a fabulous tan go together?
2What is special NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range?
NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze has two desirable effects: first of all, it protects the skin from harmful UV rays. Plus it activates the individual, natural tanning process – without being a self-tanner.
NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze cleverly unites sun protection and getting a tan. When the skin is exposed to UV rays, it starts a protective mechanism by naturally producing the brown pigment called melanin. Melanin gives the skin its colour and is a natural protective shield for the cell. Getting a tan is thus part of the skin´s protection mechanism. NIVEA SUN has integrated an active ingredient that activates this simple yet brilliant natural skin mechanism. The key ingredient of the unique NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range is the Pro Melanin extract. It activates the skin’s melanin production within our skin significantly. Even after sunbathing, the natural melanin production remains activated. NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze products support the skin’s natural ability to develop its long-lasting tan, while reliably protecting the skin.
3How do I use NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze products?
4How can NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze be best effective?
The Protect & Bronze sunscreens protective filters start working immediately upon application.
5Is the NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range dermatologically approved?
6Is NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range suitable for sensitive skin?
NIVEA SUN also offers sun care products for skin types with special requirements. For sensitive skin we recommend the NIVEA SUN Protect & Sensitive Sun Lotion.
7Is NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range just for women?
8Are the NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze products self-tanners?
No, self-tanners are products, which contain an ingredient that works on the upper layer of the skin to form a brownish color, which has no sun protection effect. It may result in patchy colouring of the skin if applied unevenly and leads to an unnatural skin colour. The NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range has a different effect. The pro melanin plant extract is a plant-based ingredient, which acts in the lower layers of the skin and triggers the production of melanin there. The NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze range protects your skin and activates its melanin production, for a beautiful and fully natural tan.
