Our bodies are resilient. This is something most of us learned from a pretty young age thanks to countless schoolyard scrapes and bruises. As we’ve grown older, we’ve experienced different types of pain and hardships, but our bodies are there to support us through life’s highs and lows.
Whether you’re highly active and enjoy keeping your body moving with sports and exercise, or you crave more artistic and cultural activities like dancing, travelling or appreciating a piece of music or art— notice how your body allows you to do the things you love.
Reflecting on what our bodies physically allow us to do is a powerful way to shift the inner narrative and expectations society projects onto us, to instead appreciate all they do for us; supporting us through life’s challenges and making life’s best moments possible.
With that in mind, it’s important to acknowledge and further fuel this resilience and beauty by showering our bodies with the love and care they deserve.
NIVEA encourages women to do exactly that through their 48H Body Diary series. From morning to night, our bodies are doing everything in their power to keep us alive and well, while also working through a never-ending list of tasks. In the #Nivea48hBodyDiary movement, a group of women produced video diaries to capture everything their bodies accomplished over a span of 48 hours and how they use NIVEA’s 48H body lotions to nourish, protect and give back to it.
All three products in this range are infused with NIVEA’s staple Deep Care Serum® and lock in moisture for up to 48 hours to help maintain a healthy skin moisture barrier, which is essential for protecting it against environmental stressors. The collection has an option for every skin type. Their Nourishing Body Milk is perfect for dry to very dry skin thanks to its key ingredient almond oil which provides intense nourishment. Their Smooth Body Lotion is infused with shea butter and melts gently into the skin leaving it soft and hydrated. Finally, their Cocoa Butter Body Lotion is ideal for dry and rough skin and is enriched with Vitamin E, which is highly moisturizing, fast-absorbing and leaves the skin with a healthy-looking glow.
Ready to appreciate and give back to your body for all the wonderful things it does for you? Here’s a deeper look into NIVEA’s Body Diary series which captures the daily routines of four resilient women and how they give back and nourish their bodies.
In a span of 48 hours, these four women worked, exercised, prayed, ran errands, cooked and took care of their families, among many other tasks and duties. Through these highs, lows and in-betweens, their bodies gave them the energy and capability to move through them with grace and ease. Each woman also demonstrated how they thank their bodies and honour the skin they’re in by incorporating NIVEA’s 48H body lotions into their daily routines.
Take the time to do the same and give back to your ever-giving body through acts of self-care and love, which include taking care of your skin with hydrating products such as NIVEA’s 48H Body Lotions.
