NIVEA Celebrates Your Shade of Beautiful

Your skin is unique to you, and that alone is worth celebrating. There are countless reasons to honour your skin however, as it holds the key to your identity and strength. Part of that celebration is an inspired community of so many diverse shades of beautiful. And that’s why we love and applaud NIVEA for meeting the often-overlooked needs of melanin-rich skin.

Targeting the specific concerns of darker skin tones, NIVEA is helping women chase that confidence-boosting glow. It’s truly about celebrating all skin!

The Skin You’re In

Beauty and lifestyle digital creator Vongai Mapho, describes skin as “glorious.” Is that how you feel about yours? Vongai and four other influential South African women are at the forefront of the inspiring campaign – and they’re all speaking out about their experiences of skin and beauty. Confidence came up as a strong theme. Author, Goodwill Ambassador, Miss SA 2020, and Glamour’s Wellness Issue Cover Star, Shudufhadzo Musida notes that it’s human nature to seek validation from the world, and affirms that “the only person who can validate you, is you.”

Let’s talk smart solutions for those struggles that may be making you feel less than your best. According to Shudu, her skin is her crown, “and when I protect it with quality products that help to give it that sheer skin tone, texture and glow, I feel super confident in my melanin skin no matter the occasion.” What’s her new go-to? NIVEA’s Radiant & Beauty range for nourishment and protection of every shade of beautiful.
