The first step on your Healthy Skin Journey is to know your skin type.
Nimue is known for its expert understanding of the skin and the effective treatment of various skin conditions. The modern and innovative Nimue skin classification looks at overall skin health, skin health improvement and maintenance instead of traditional skin types in order to treat the underlying causes instead of visible symptoms.
Several criteria are used to classify the different types of skin in Nimue Skin Classification. From a cosmetic point of view, skin is classified according to several factors related to its balance: sebaceous secretion, hydration and sensitivity level.
Thus, each type of skin will have its own characteristics and require different care approaches. The type of skin is determined by genetics, although it will also be affected by other factors and can change with time.

Nimue Skin Classification:
Environmentally damaged skin
Sensitive skin / interactive range
Nimue Environmentally Damaged Skin
Environmentally damaged skin results from a history of overexposure to environmental elements. Environmentally Damaged Skin can be caused by many factors. These include over-exposure to the sun, living in a very cold climate, general pollution, stress and of course, smoking. The signs of this skin type are lots of brown spots (“liver spots”) loss of bounce in the skin and signs of premature ageing (that is, serious lines and wrinkles). You may have a dull skintone, freckles in abundance and red-coloured patches. Using products for this skin type must be accompanied by changes in lifestyle, if at all possible.The sun is responsible for up to 80% of all skin ageing concerns.
Nimue Problematic Skin
Problematic skin, also classified as acne affects people of all races and ethnic groups and sometimes persists well into adulthood. The contributing factors for problematic skin may include genetics, hormones, hygiene, incorrect use of skincare products, stripping of the skin’s natural oil barrier, diet, stress, sleep patterns, medication, solar exposure and smoking. Statistics show that 70% – 80% of the population suffer from different forms of problematic skin and acne.
Pigmentation development in the skin is influenced by of a number of internal and external factors, one of the most influential being UV radiation. Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin color of people of any race.
Nimue sensitive skin / interactive range
Sensitive skin is a common issue but not a medical diagnosis in itself. The term generally refers to skin that is more prone to inflammation or adverse reactions. People with sensitive skin may have strong reactions to chemicals, dyes, and fragrances present in products that come into contact with the skin.
