It’s a known fact that not everyone has the same type of skin and there are different factors that come into play when determining which kind you have. In today’s post, we are sharing the different skin types that are out there and what you should do to help treat or maintain them. Let’s jump in!
Just as this section’s title states, normal skin is exactly what it says it is - normal! Known as eudermic, this skin type is well-balanced and not oily or dry. Your pores will appear fine and your skin will have a smooth and soft texture. You won’t find a blemish on a person who has normal skin because their skin is not prone to any sensitivity. What a lucky duck! However, as time goes on and you age, your skin can potentially become dryer, which is known as age induced dryness.
While having normal skin may sound like you don’t need to follow a skincare regimen or apply any products, think again! Using skincare products to maintain your skin’s beauty is oh-so important. Find the right routine and products and you’ll continue to rock gorgeous skin!
Moving onto oily skin, this skin type occurs when there is too much sebum production, aka seborrhea. When this occurs, your pores will appear enlarged and your skin will appear glossy. The cause of oily skin can vary from person to person, but some factors include genetics, hormonal changes or imbalances, make-up, medication, or even stress. For those that have oily skin, blackheads, whiteheads, papules, or pustules can appear.
Not all hope is lost though! To help combat oily skin, we offer a few products that can help reduce it. Our Ashes Clay Mask is a great example because it will clean your pores and detox your skin to leave it feeling squeaky clean!
Do you feel like your skin is constantly dry and in need of some serious nourishment? Dry skin occurs when your skin does not produce enough sebum compared to normal skin. Due to the lack of sebum, your dry skin will not have enough lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a shield against any outside influences that there may be - resulting in an impaired barrier function. Not fun right?
What is also a factor in dry skin? The lack of natural moisturizing factors, also known as NMF’s! Urea, amino acids, and lactic acids are what help bind in water and when epidermal lipids (ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids) are not present, your skin’s barrier becomes compromised. Rough patches, itchiness, and tightness will be the result but fear not, there’s some solutions! A product like our Queen Cream and Naked Moisturizer both respectively moisturize your face and body to restore your skin back to a healthy state. Nourished skin is happy skin!
This skin type is a mixture of the not-so best of both worlds! Combination skin consists of both oily and dry skin, and can vary in appearance between your T-zone (forehead, chin, nose) and cheeks. Enlarged pores in your T-zone are common with some possible impurities (acne) and your cheeks will look normal or dry. To help balance out your skin, our Sensitive Skin Starter Set will tackle all your problem areas and get your skin back on track!
