What kind of skin I have

How to know what kind of skin do I have?

Find out here what type of skin you have and how to take care of it according to your skin type

 

Oily skin

  • Your skin is oily and bright, especially in the area T (front, nose and chin)

  • It is prone to open pores, black spots and pimples

  • Irregular and oily touch

  • Little presence of wrinkles but skin sagging usually appears at an earlier stage

Recommendations

A gentle facial cleansing is essential if you have an oily skin, if you want to avoid your skin to become oilier. If you use a harsh cleanser, your skin will generate more sebum and therefore become oilier as a measure to protect itself. So please make sure you cleanse your face only with a very gentle cleanser (sulfate free + pH 5 only). 

We also recommend you to use a sebum regulating spray such as our Cool Splash. Due to its content in Hamamelis, (a great sebum regulating agent) and the fact that this spray only contains active ingredients non-oily ingredients, it is the perfect product for an oily skin

And most important of all, your facial moisturizer should always be in gel texture, in order to avoid excess skine on the skin. Our Youth Blend Gel also contains Larch Tree extract to prevent skin sagging that appears earlier in oily skin.

 

Combination / Mixed skin

  • Combination skin is halfway between oily skin and normal skin.
  • The oilier area is normally the forehead, nose and chin, the so-called T zone.
  • The driest areas are often on the cheeks and also on the neck.

Recommendations

 

Dry Skin

  • Tends to be rigid and even itchy, especially after cleansing or shaving. 
  • It is prone to peel off.
  • It can look aged and without tone

Recommendations

If you have a dry skin, it is basic that you hydrate every single day and night with a Good Moisturizing Cream, if possible wih no petroleum derived oils (such as silicones or paraffins, as it is proved that they end up drying up the lower layers of your skin).

It is also essential that your facial cleansing is pursued with a gentle cleanser. That means, a sulphate free specific cleanser and with pH 5.5. Do not use a conventional shower gel to cleanse your face. 

We also recommend to boost your facial hydration with our Revitalizing spray. For best results, apply first the spray on your face, and right after that apply the moisturizer

If you blend both textures (spray + cream) together, this will create an emulsion that will help the spray to penetrate to lower layers of the skin in order to achieve a deeper hydration.

 

Normal skin

  • The texture of your skin is regular
  • You do not have problems of blackheads, excess shine, redness or imperfections
  • Apparently soft, clean and healthy

Recommendations

You are lucky enough to have normal skin, but do not stop hydrating it. The type of moisturizer (either gel or cream) to be used will depend on where you live and on the season of the year.

If you live in a humid or warm climate, then our recommendation is to use a moisturizer with a Gel texture. If, on the contrary you live in a dry or cold place, we recommend a facial moisturizing Cream.

And if you live in a climate with a big weather difference in each season, then you should combine both textures. In summer or during the hot season, we recommend you a Moisturizing Gel, and in winter or cold season, a Moisturizing Cream.

 

Sensitive skin

  • It reacts to most skin care and shaving products. Frequent redness. 
  • Your skin becomes red easily when sunbathing or during both very hot or very cold weather. 
  • Reacts easily when you eat certain foods or is in touch with synthetic fragrances causing rash or itching.

Recommendations

  • It is vital that you use a very mild and gentle Facial cleanser.
  • When you dry your skin after cleansing, apply your towel on the face and let the towel or cloth absorb the humidity. Do not rub your towel on your skin. 
  • Avoid too much scrubbing, and always use a physical scrub, never a chemical one.
  • Avoid products with aggressive chemical ingredients.
  • If your skin reacts even to a natural product, rinse with plenty of cold water and you will see that the reaction will go easily.
  • Always use a Powerful moisturizing cream that protects against external agents such as cold or pollution. That will help you to have your a healthy and balanced skin.
