What-is your skin type?


Normal skin

Have normal skin is a chance! That’s why there are not many. Normal skin may not know they have this skin type because when asked, they simply say they have no apparent problem. All is well! So, no problem = normal skin.

By cons, if one treats the pain, she can easily change and in turn become dehydrated or mixed. It can become dehydrated due to temperature (as eg the Nordic countries), lack of hydration, medication, etc.. It can get a little oily if you apply care too rich or that contain occlusive agents (which prevent the skin from breathing). In this case, it can develop blackheads or other unusual symptoms. It may also become sensitive and develop rashes. Overexposure to the sun, stress, pollution, are examples of factors that can tip a normal skin in sensitive skin. In short, we do not sit on its laurels, and treats both normal skin than other skin types. Simply choose products designed for it.

Dry skin

Dry skin is totally the opposite of oily skin. Oily skin produces too much sebum, while dry skin does not produce enough.

You have dry skin so it is tight and uncomfortable at times, is still matte (low gloss and brightness), it completely absorbs creams you apply, it exfoliates (small dry skin that up) and sometimes rough.

Sebum acts to protect the skin. Dry skin is very vulnerable. It is therefore essential to the spread of very rich cream twice a day without omission. Forget the water foaming cleansers, they dry out even more. Prefer cleansing milks, cleansing creams (non-foaming) or micellar water.

Oily skin

As mentioned previously, oily skin is a problem of overproduction of sebum. Oily skin usually know they are quite easily in this category.

The symptoms are quite striking: skin shines (on the face, including cheeks), even shortly after cleaning, makeup and does not migrate, it is prone to blackheads and pimples, we feel often need to clean the skin with water for a feeling of freshness, etc..

Oily skin, surprising as it may seem, also needs hydration, because it can also become dehydrated. By cons, it is necessary to choose the right moisturizer. Gels and lotions are ideal matting, as well as moisturizing, they contain agents sebo (decrease sebum production) and mattifying ingredients (which absorb oil and give skin less brightness).

Even if it makes you feel good, avoid lotions with alcohol. Other ingredients (such as menthol) can give a feeling of freshness, but without dehydrating the skin as does alcohol. In addition, the skin defends alcohol producing more sebum, so it makes the situation worse.

Also avoid surexfolier skin as well as with alcohol, exfoliation stimulates the sebaceous glands, and they will produce more sebum. You can exfoliate, but be content with light smoothing without pressure (it does not rub), and once a week is sufficient.

And of course, forget creams rich oil based. Everything must be water-based, light and fluid.

Combination skin

Combination skin is very similar to normal skin, but he adds some imbalances: an overproduction of sebum in some areas and lacking in other areas. It has oily skin in some places and dry in others. Often, the area is called the fat area “T” because it is the forehead, nose and chin, creating the shape of a T. The parties are often dry cheeks.

Combination skin is skin type the most common. In fact, it is a normal skin balance.

To rebalance, you should use moisturizing products enough to work dry areas, but not fat not to aggravate the oily areas and matting to reduce oily areas shine. Fortunately, care for combination skin are numerous.

Care for combination skin should be water-based, non-occlusive (to let the skin breathe and does not clog pores and create blackheads or pimples), while moisturizing, but not greasy, oil-free, and in some cases matting. And yes, it exists!

Universal types

I said universal types, because both following skin types can be combined with all other types, so we can not really say that they are classes or types of skins. So depending on your school of thought, they can be considered as types of skin full.

Sensitive skin

As mentioned, sensitive skin can also be oily, dry or mixed. But sensitive skin requires special care, so we must consider the problem significantly and choose products accordingly.

Sensitive skin is in almost all cases redness. It becomes easily irritated, inflamed or it tingles or itches because it is too often reactive.

Several treatments are designed for sensitive skin. Basically, this care contain fewer ingredients, reducing the chances of reactions are unscented, because the perfume is one of the worst enemies of sensitive skin, and sometimes contain active anti-redness and soothing as skin burning must be appeased.

In addition to choosing this type of care, be sure to wear a high sun protection whenever you point the nose out, because the sun aggravates redness.

In addition to fragrances, we must also avoid alcohol, cleansers and exfoliants agressants at the risk of skin irritation.

Dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin lacks water. Dehydration may be occasional (seasonal) or more frequently, depending on each person.

Obviously influences the inside out, so someone who does not hydrate enough (lack of water), will also have dehydrated skin.

Dehydrated skin shows symptoms very similar to dry skin, but with other symptoms not belonging to either dry skin at the same time, or the rest of the year. To clarify what I just mentioned, dry skin is dry all the time, throughout the year, and it will most likely all his life. Dehydrated skin is generally more yoyo. If you have slightest a little oil on the nose or some black spots, or that your symptoms of dry skin appear only in certain occasions (temperature changes, hormonal changes, pregnancy, medication, stress, etc..) this is for sure a dehydrated skin.

As for sensitive skin, it is quite possible to have a combination skin and dehydrated, oily or dry and dehydrated and dried. This is an additional problem.

Treat dehydrated skin is simple: give water, because that is what it lacks. And dehydrated skin is no shortage of oil, so do not treat it with products for dry skin (unless it is dry and dehydrated, so in this case we go with a cream for dry and dehydrated skin, because yes, also it does exist!). Care for dehydrated skin are water-based and are designed to moisturize deeply without being greasy.

So there, now I want to know if you recognize yourself in one or more categories? Are you already soigniez your skin or this article will make you change your skincare routine???

And finally, remember that when you’re unlucky, it is also quite possible to have oily skin, sensitive and dehydrated at the time …: o) But it also can be treated!
