How it works
Dry skin is not only lacking in moisture, but also deficient in moisture binding substances, such as Urea and Lactate. Replenishing dry skin with these natural moisturising factors restores its natural moisture control system, reducing dryness and tightness to keep it soft, smooth and healthy.
Why do I need a special moisturiser for my face?
Your face is generally exposed to the causes of dry skin, like sunshine, wind and detergents, much more frequently than the rest of your body, and therefore needs frequent moisturisation to prevent dry skin symptoms, such as itching, redness, scaling and irritation. Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea contains key ingredients that lock in moisture to maintain long-lasting hydration. Learn more about dry facial skin.
Why should I use Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea instead of just using a body product, such as Eucerin Smoothing Cream 5% Urea, on my face?
Facial skin is different to body skin, and Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea is specifically formulated for facial skin - it has a superior texture to Eucerin Smoothing Cream 5% Urea, making it more easily absorbed and better tolerated (when used on the face).

What is the difference between Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea and Eucerin Smoothing Night Creme 5% Urea?
