How To Take Care Of Your Skin Type
When trying to take care of your skin, it is important to know what your skin type is. But once you are aware of your skin type, what is the next step? You will need to discover the best way to take care of your skin type to create happy skin. Here are a few ways to take care of your skin according to your skin type:
Normal skin is the easiest to take care of. Although it is not necessary to use drastic measures in your skin care, this skin type needs a skincare routine. Normal skin can use almost any cleanser: gel, milk, or oil. Since this skin type is neither too dry or too oily, it is probably best to use nothing too harsh. A balancing toner is great making sure your skin stays at the correct pH level, aiding your already happy skin. With normal skin, there is no need to over moisturize. Something light and moisturizing like Triple Threat is perfect for all skin types and it contains healing properties, plus adding a Hyaluronic Serum is a perfect way to add natural moisture. For those times when the skin is needing a little extra help, a gentle exfoliator is a great way to brighten the skin and rid the skin of dead cells.
Dry skin requires a bit more love than normal skin. With all skin types, less is always more, but it is especially true with dry skin. Dry skin benefits from cleansers that are gentle, like our Triple Threat Serum which doubles as a cleanser and moisturizer. Speaking of moisturizers, dry skin will benefit from not only a repairing serum but also a hydrating cream. It can also be important to add a HA serum that will neither make your skin oily or congested. (Do you know the benefits of HA serum and the difference between HA serum and other oil serum?) Be careful with exfoliating when it comes to dry skin, once a week with a gentle exfoliator will be plenty of care.
Since sebum is being overproduced in oily skin, it can be helpful to cleanse the skin often. It is not necessary to use a gentle cleanser, but it is also not helpful to use a cleanser that will completely strip your skin of all its oils. It is better to opt for something more on the gentle side rather than harsh. Moisturizing is important for oily skin. Most people think they should skip this step, but moisturizing oily skin with something light and natural found in the skin like HA is an amazing way to add hydration that doesn’t clog pores and leaves the skin feeling moisturized without an oily feel. If you are dealing with a lot of congestion, a detox mask can help decongest the skin and leave it feeling more balanced.
Combination skin is a combo of dry and oily skin. A great way to treat this skin is to be gentle with it. Using both recommendations for oily and dry skin will help create happy skin. When it comes to exfoliating, maybe use two different masks if you are not only doing spot treatments in order to keep from creating more dryness on the parts of the skin that is already dry.
With sensitive skin, you can usually follow care tips for dry skin with the added help of using unscented products. Scents can often cause unwanted reactions in sensitive skin. Keep it simple!
As you can see with most skin types, it is important to not use harsh products on the skin. Another aid to add to a skincare routine is not a product at all but rather tools. Tools, like gua sha, rollers, dry/wet brush, and facial cupping, can be helpful in moving out congestion, ridding the body of toxins, and removing dead skin cells. The foods you eat are also another factor that can aid in healthy and happy skin. Drink lots of water and eat all the whole foods, like fruits and veggies. Remember less is more!
