What's Your Skin Type?
Posted on 11 March 2020
Determining your skin type can unlock the secrets to a clear, radiant complexion. You can choose products that address your specific skincare needs and accentuate your natural beauty. Get started with this guide:
A normal complexion is considered the baseline for healthy, balanced skin. Individuals who fall into this category have few visible blemishes, pores, or imperfections. Skin feels supple and hydrated, but not oily.
When skin is dry, you will have a rough complexion with barely visible pores. Lines, dark spots, red patches, and discoloration are more evident when the skin lacks hydration. Without moisture, itching, inflammation, and peeling can develop. Infuse with a rich night cream to hydrate and give it some life.
Oil overproduction can create a shiny complexion with large pores, blemishes, and blackheads. This type of complexion is often influenced by hormones, so it's common during puberty, as well as that dreaded ‘time of the month’ and pregnancy for women. Use a light, oil-free moisturizer to avoid clogging your pores.
This is the most common skin type, where normal, dry and oily patches of skin occur. This type of complexion is often characterized by an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). You may have some enlarged pores, blemishes, shiny areas or dry spots.
This type of complexion responds unfavorably to irritants and allergens, such as environmental debris, or harsh ingredients and chemicals in beauty products. People with sensitive skin may develop redness, dry patches, itching and even burning. Identify ingredients that bother your skin and eliminate these specific items from your skin-care routine. You should also look for simple formulas without added fragrance such as our Vitamin C Exfoliating Cleanser, Hyaluronic Dew Serum, and Breakthrough Night Cream.
