How to choose the right Skin Treatment for Your Skin Type.

Do you want to know what your skin type is and why it’s so important? Understanding your skin type is the primary stage in taking care of your skin. Understanding your skin type means understanding how your skin responds to certain conditions or seasons.

Every skin type is different but basically falls under the following categories. The four major skin types are Oily skin, Combination skin, Dry skin and Sensitive skin.

Skin Types

Dry Skin

Dry skin is characterized by tightness and flaking throughout the day. It’s caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, lifestyle and diet changes, hormonal imbalances, and environmental factors like climate.
To combat dry skin, it’s important to stay hydrated and avoid diuretics such as alcohol and caffeine.

Combination Skin

People with combination skin tend to have dry cheeks, so it’s important to choose a moisturizer that’s not too thick but strong enough to hold moisture where it’s needed most. People with combination skin generally don’t have breakouts on the cheeks and have a well-maintained t-zone (the area around the forehead, chin and nose).

Oily skin

Oily skin can often lead to clogged and congested pores. However, the beauty of oily skin is that it looks more youthful and supple. Oily skin has more natural hydration and is less likely to develop fine lines.

Sensitive skin

Like dry skin, sensitive skin can come in many forms. Some people have dry skin, some have oily skin, and some have both.

How to care for your skin?
For dry skin, exfoliation daily with gentle, non-abrasive ingredients stimulates skin cell turnover without stripping the skin of its essential oils. Without an extra layer of dead skin cells, your serums and treatments are easier to absorb.

Taking care of combination skin can seem complicated – but it’s actually quite easy. Gentle daily exfoliation will keep your t-zone and your cheek in balance.
For hydration, gel-like moisturizers are easier to absorb and less prone to clogging pores and causing breakouts. Start small and build up as needed to prevent overhydration and stress.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by oily skin, but here are some tips to keep your face looking healthy and glowing.

Daily enzyme exfoliation is important to stimulate cell turnover and stop sebum from building up in your pores. A gentle, non-abrasive exfoliator (which doesn’t use abrasive materials like crushed nuts or seeds, which can cause small tears in your dermis) can also help balance your skin tone and texture.

If you have oilier skin, you’re more likely to suffer from post-inflammation hyperpigmentation (PIH). PIH is a skin condition that leaves dark spots on your skin after a breakout heals. Exfoliation helps lighten those dark spots by exposing new underlying cells and the pigmentation is invisible.

One of the biggest challenges in managing sensitive skin is that it takes a lot of time and energy to figure out which ingredients cause your skin to become inflamed and irritated. The best way to manage sensitive skin is to introduce a new formula or product only once. This is true for both skincare products and cosmetics.
