Its Saturday! Another weekend. Most of the time the weekend is to wear off the stress of the work days that’s why we relax, lazy around… Eat nice food and even do some therapy especially when it comes to the skin(face), but most of our problems are, which products should I use to give me my desired outcome. Before picking a skincare product you have to know your type of skin. Someone would ask “does it matter?” hell yeah it does!
Observing to know your skin type is a basic guide on how to properly take care and pick products for your skin. There are 6 skin types;
1. Normal skin: This type of skin can use regular products. To know if this is your skin type, you would notice you have a slight oily shine, some pores along your T-zone and rare breakouts on the face. This skin is neither oil-free or sensitive.
2. Dry skin: You would observe that this type has got little to no pores or shine. The skin is usually flaky or tight. What to use? Products with adequate moisturizing formulas. Tip: When picking a product look out for products with hyaluronic acid; This particular organic acid will moisturize and plump skin up by drawing in moisture from the surrounding environment.
3. Oily skin: Its has got frequent breakouts, large pores and an oily shine. What you need to do if you have this skin type is to regulate sebum production and moisture. Always cleanse and exfoliate your skin as it is prone to acne and oil build up.
4.Combination skin: This type is oily only at the T-zone and dry everywhere else. If this is your skin type, pick products with minimum moisture. Don’t pick harsh products that would totally make your face dry or products for oily skin to avoid build up and then acne breakouts.
5.Sensitive skin: If you have this do not fear😽 This skin reacts easily to products and surrounding environment, your face might turn red, bumpy or itchy. All you need do is to carefully select the skin care products you use. Eat healthy(I mean eat lots of vegetables and fruits) use gentle products like a potent antioxidant and STAY AWAY from products with synthetic fragrances use products that reduce inflammation as a result of irritation.
6.Under circulated skin: If you don’t experience redness or hurt on your skin after a hot bath, using a scrub, getting a bruise or a facial. And your skin is usually pale. Then this is your skin. Why your skin is this way is because you don’t have enough oxygen and nutrient rich blood flowing, so it usually looks pale. A good way to get glowing skin and normal skin is to use ingredients that will increases the dilation of good vessels and promote oxygen and blood flow like peppermint, rosewater and massaging your face regularly to help blood flow.
And if you’re already on track with your skin care regime don’t forget to follow these steps:
3.Hydrate (during the day to reduce the sun’s harshness)
4. Nourish, Moisturize(at night before going to bed)
