Determining your skin type and which products suit you best pave the way for healthy and vibrant skin. The most important part of your beauty routine should be skincare. Smooth, supple and healthy skin makes for a superb canvas. Go beyond the usual wash, exfoliate, tone and moisturize routine and get the most out of your skincare when you target problem areas. Here's a quick and easy guide to get you started:
Normal skin looks consistently plump, moist and vibrant. What a great blessing but it still requires no less attention than other skin types. It benefits from regular cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
Caused by inactive oil glands that do not produce enough sebum to keep the skin naturally lubricated. It usually has a dull appearance and leaves skin feeling dry and itchy as it is sometimes sensitive. Dry skin must be hydrated regularly from the inside (with fresh water) and outside with (mists), as well as moisturized with rich hydrating creams or lotions.
You may have enlarged pores and you may be prone to blackheads and breakouts due to the overproduction of the sebaceous (oil-producing) glands. You'll notice that the oiliest parts of your face is the “T-zone” area (forehead, nose, chin) while your cheeks and temples may feel dry.
This is characterized by an oily “T-zone” area, which covers the forehead, nose and chin. The skin around the cheeks, eyes and mouth is normal or dry.
This skin type is prone to react adversely to cosmetics containing alcohol, synthetically manufactured oil type ingredients, fragrance oils and artificial colors. Sensitive skin benefits greatly from natural, gentle, skincare products and treatments, including light steaming and some essential oils.
Skincare is as extensive as it is important.
