We all know that choosing the right product for your face is very important. However, what may work for one person might not be ideal for another depending on their skin type. So how do you choose? Here is a little guide to help you out!
Types of Skin
Normal Skin: Normal skin is aptly named because there are no outstanding issues with it – no dryness or oiliness – and people who have it tend to mostly only use moisturizer.
Combination Skin: These people have both an oily T-zone area and normal skin elsewhere on the face. The general rule of thumb here would be to target your T-zone with a balancing toner (used to “balance” the face) and moisturizer.
Oily Skin: Oily skin has visible sebaceous glands, which are tiny oil-producing glands in your pores that don’t necessarily appear on your face even though they are still there. To get rid of excess oil, you would want to use a toner with salicylic acid in it. This helps balance the amount of oil on the surface of your skin while also unclogging pores for better skin health!
Dry Skin: When your skin does not produce enough natural oils or moisture, it can feel tight and dry. You should look for skincare products with ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, glycerine, and jojoba oil to keep your skin moisturized.
Sensitive Skin: If your skin easily reacts to the products you use (by turning red, for example), it’s probably sensitive! Look out for soothing ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile in your products.
If you have Sensitive Skin, pay extra attention to these tips:
- Do not pick or scrub – this may irritate your skin further.
- Always follow up with a good moisturizer
- Avoid applying cosmetics.
- Use cosmetics that are perfume-free and hypoallergenic.
- Gently wash off dirt.
- Don’t let the weather get too cold.
- Be wary of strong winds
- Protect yourself from harsh sunlight.
- Don’t over-exfoliate.
- Avoid using abrasive cleansers.
- Seek help from professionals
