What Is My True Skin Type?
CARING FOR DIFFERENT SKIN TYPES
Identifying your skin type category can help to create a skin care regimen that will help you have vibrant and healthy skin. It is important to note that your skin type can deviate with the season, changes in lifestyle, and hormonal surges.
NORMAL TO DRY SKIN
Smooth in appearance - Firm to the touch - No excessive dryness - No excessive oilyness.
Dry skin can be a blessing, but overly dry skin can lead to premature aging and wrinkles. Combat dryness by applying moisturizer when skin is just barely dry from toning to lock in moisture. Using Intense Nutrients Organic Moisturizer with hyaluronic acid and DMAE can help increase water bonds in the skin cells and improve overall skin tone and smoothness.
Combat dryness from the inside out by using Amino Collagen C and Norway Pure Omega-3 supplements. Amino Collagen C contains hyaluronic acid which helps skin cells retain moisture as well as collagen peptides to galvanize skin structure. Omega-3 fish oil is a wonderful way to protect age-sensitive tissues and give skin a truly healthy glow that come from deep within.
Coloring in the high cheek area - Skin reactions to weather - Reactions to scented cosmetics greasy or shiny - Visible Pores - Acne
Avoiding harsh chemicals, perfumes, and over cleansing is key to maintaining sensitive skin. Keeping oils at bay with Pore Refining Exfo Toner not only strengthens pore walls, but calms skin from outside irritants.
COMBINATION & OILY SKIN
Forehead, nose, and chin are oilier than the rest of the face - Cheeks are usually dry/normal - Occasional blemishes.
You may be tempted to get your skin squeaky clean with a detergent cleanser, but avoid this. Over-cleansing can create a reverse reaction where you skin creates more oils and lead to acne. Gently wash with Nourishing Pomegranate Organic Cleanser which leaves your natural lipid barrier intact. Follow up with Pore Refining Exfo Toner and lightly moisturize with Intense Nutrients Organic Moisturizer or pure Aloe Vera.
