Know Your Skin Type and Cater to It!

Do you know your skin type? It’s an important question to have answered before you dive in and start purchasing your favorite skincare products. We will start with the basics. There are four different types of skin: normal skin, dry skin, oily skin, and combination skin. Skin types are caused by genetics but can vary greatly due to internal and external factors. Here we will break it all down.

Normal skin: ‘Normal’ is a term that is used to described well-balanced skin. Normal skin has good blood circulation, a smooth texture, and little to no blemishes. Lucky you! To view your ideal skincare set, click here!

Dry skin: ‘Dry’ skin is a type of skin that produces less sebum than it normally should. Dry skin, therefore, lacks the lipids it needs to keep its moisture and build a protective layer against any external forces. Skin moisture depends on the supply of water in the deeper skin layers and perspiration. You typically know if you have dry skin because it often feels leathery, chapped, or tight.

Oily skin: This skin type describes skin with heightened sebum. The overproduction of sebum is known as seborrhea. There are many causes of overproduction of sebum including hormonal changes and imbalances, stress, and medication. Oily skin is usually marked by enlarged, visible pores, a shine, as well as thicker skin. To view your ideal skincare set, click here!

Combination skin: This type of skin refers to a combination or mix of skin types. This combination skin type occurs in the T-zone. The T-zone consists of the forehead, nose, and chin. Combination skin is defined by an oily T-zone, normal to dry cheeks, and enlarged pores. To view your ideal skincare set, click here!

Sensitive Skin: {Although not a technical skin type, many people have sensitive skin, so we included it here.} Those suffering from sensitive skin usually incur redness, burning and or itching with the use of certain products. Sensitive skin is a symptom caused by various factors including allergies and or an underlying skin disorder. Sensitive skin is easily irritated and should be catered to by using very clean, mild cleansers and toners. To view your ideal skincare set, click here!

Throughout the course of your life, it would not be abnormal for your skin type to change. There are many factors at play, including climate and pollution, hereditary factors, pregnancy and postpartum, and medications.

With this knowledge in mind, skincare products should be chosen to match your skin type. Always remember to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water and treat your skin like you would any other part of your body, with care. In return, you should look in the mirror and see a reflection that glows.
