More than 20 years ago, Laboratoire NUXE created the Rêve de Miel® skincare range.
Its special ingredient: honey, a beauty treasure with comforting properties, which is ideal for dry skin!
The Rêve de Miel® skincare range has been specially designed to provide comfort to dry and very dry skin types and to preserve the skin barrier, thanks to Precious Botanical Oils* which offer a NOURISHING ACTION*, and Acacia Honey due to its SOFTENING ACTION.
The generosity of Honey, combined with these Precious Botanical Oils form the core of 7 effective and ultra-comfortable face and body formulas for dry and sensitive skin.
Rêve de Miel® is also NUXE's inimitable signature, with smooth, melting, creamy textures and delicious honey scents, to cloak the skin in comfort.

The 3 golden rules for dealing with dry skin
1. When you have dry skin, it's very important to choose a suitable cleanser, that is to say, it should be soap-free and enriched with lipids.
2. Every day, apply a nourishing treatment to your face and body; choose rich and creamy textures.
3. Choose cotton clothing and avoid clothes made from wool or synthetic fabrics, which are an irritant for your skin.
What is the impact of winter on skin?
During the winter, our face, hands and lips are the first to suffer from external aggressions. On the surface of the skin, the hydrolipidic film becomes thinner. The skin becomes more fragile, and loses its suppleness and its elasticity. Scaly-looking and chapped areas appear.
It is therefore important to replenish the lipids (with formulas that are rich in botanical oils), to soothe and repair the skin (with honey, for example).
Should you target particular areas with a specific treatment (elbows, knees, etc.)?
Skin can be even drier and start to thicken on areas that are subject to frequent rubbing. To soothe these areas, use an exfoliating treatment once a week and apply ultra-nourishing and repairing products every day.
How can you avoid chapped lips?
Biting your lips is a bad habit!
Apply a hydrating stick during the day to protect your lips.
Once a week, exfoliate your lips with a small amount of powdered sugar mixed with Rêve de Miel® Lip Balm to remove dead skin cells.
When you go to sleep, apply a thick layer of nourishing Lip Balm; it will have a nourishing and repairing action throughout the night.
How can you avoid very dry hands during the winter?
When it's very cold, wear gloves every time you go out and apply a fine layer of nourishing hand cream.
When you go to bed, don't hesitate to massage in a greater quantity of hand cream: it will be absorbed during the night. When you wake up, your hands will be soft and supple.
What Rêve de Miel® skincare routine should I adopt?
During your morning shower, cleanse your body with Face and Body Ultra-Rich Cleansing Gel. Once skin is towel-dried, apply Ultra-Comforting Body Cream to soothe irritations and feelings of tautness. Apply Ultra-Comforting Face Cream (Day) and a smudge of Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm to protect your lips throughout the day.
Apply the hand and nail cream every day to nourish and repair the skin on your hands.
In the evening, remove make-up with the Face Cleansing and Make-Up Removing Gel and apply the Ultra-Comforting Face Cream (Night). Before slipping in between the sheets, apply a thick layer of Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm for super-soft lips when you wake up.
NUXE DIY Beauty Tip: for skin that's as soft as honey
Both complex and wonderful, honey is the ultimate gift that nature has to offer. It is the fruit of an alchemy between the nectar from the flowers gathered by the bees and the transformation that takes place within the beehive. Used for millennia due to its sugary properties, honey has numerous therapeutic benefits: toning, anti-septic and, above all, healing. It was already being used by women as a beauty product in ancient Egypt and Rome.
NUXE Research uses honey due to its richness in sugars, which make an excellent ingredient with comforting properties for protecting the skin barrier against external aggressions and dehydration: a real treasure for dry skin!
With a large yellow flower head which "follows the sun", and a tall, fairly smooth stalk, everyone recognises the sunflower, an annual plant which is grown for its seeds, which are rich in a high-quality food oil. Originally from North America and Mexico, sunflowers are now cultivated worldwide. The oil extracted from sunflower seeds is valued due to its balanced content in unsaturated fatty acids, including linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid. It is ideal for managing diabetes and it is also an excellent source of anti-oxidant Vitamin E.
NUXE Research has chosen a derivate of Sunflower Oil, obtained through molecular distillation, a non-chemical procedure. Composed of 90% unsaturated fatty acids, of which 20% are oleic acid (omega 9) and 60% linoleic acid (omega 6), this extract activates the synthesis of the skin's natural lipids. It is therefore ideal for replenishing lipids in dry and sensitive skin and thus improving their barrier function.
How can we tell when skin is dry?
The symptoms are clear: skin is rough, it loses its suppleness. Scaly areas (composed of dead skin plaques) can appear. This is what we recognise as "crocodile skin" on the legs. And these visible signs are accompanied by a permanent feeling of discomfort: skin feels taut, itchy and is sometimes reddish in color. It needs some tender loving care!
Why does dry skin need specific skincare?
Skin is a barrier that is made up of "bricks" = the cells, cemented together by a "cement" = lipids. When these lipids (ceramides, cholesterol, fatty acids, etc.) are lacking, the skin loses its barrier function: it allows its precious water content to evaporate, and it becomes more sensitive to environmental aggressions.
What are the benefits of the Rêve de Miel range?
Rêve de Miel® is a nourishing and ultra-comfortable skincare range whose efficacy is based on a triple R.S.R. action = Replenishes lipids, Soothes and Repairs.
Laboratoire NUXE discovered that Honey, with its multiple properties, combined with precious botanical oils* is the ideal solution for treating dry skin.

Laboratoire NUXE has always drawn its inspiration from Nature and made biodiversity one of its major concerns.
Bees, pollinating insects which are essential for the reproduction of more than 80% of plant species, are now threatened with extinction, which would have a dramatic effect on the ecosystem.
This is why NUXE is supporting efforts to protect bees, by working with the company "Un toit pour les abeilles".
This association sponsors hives located in the Vosges area of France, with the aim of encouraging the establishment of a new colony in the region, helping to protect bees and increase their numbers.
