Determine Your Skin Type

Skin falls into four types-

  1. Normal
  2. Oily
  3. Dry and
  4. Combination
  5. Sensitive
  • NORMAL SKIN :shows neither oil nor flaking skin. It should feel supple and smooth. If you have it, consider yourself lucky.

     TREATMENT: it benefits from regular cleansing, toning and moisturizing

  • OILY SKIN is characterized by the grease on the tissue. It is also common for a person with oily skin to have large pores and a shine.

   TREATMENT: deep and clean products to scrub the face in the night, they also use              toner, moisturizers, clean before sleeping at night, it has to be alcohol free.

  • DRY SKIN may feel taut or show flakes of dead skin. It is associated with small pores. Moisturizing is important for this skin type. this is caused by under or inactive oil glands that do not produce enough sebum to keep the skin naturally lubricated, it usually has a dull appearance, feel dry and itchy and is sometimes sensitive. Dry skin must be hydrated regularly from inside with (fresh water)and from the outside with mists as well as moisturized with rich hydrating creams or lotions this kind of skin gets even out without applying powder. they normally have whitish color on their face, they have wrinkled skin.

TREATMENT: use scrub once or twice a week, at most three days interval before                scrubbing. Use moisturizer to balance their skin or toner that contains oil.

  • COMBINATION SKIN is most common. It exhibits traits of all three of the above skin types. Usually, the skin is oily in the T-zone and normal to dry elsewhere. most people have at least two different type of facial skin at any given time .The combination of skin is frequently characterized by an oily “T-zone”area which covers the forehead, nose and chin. While the skin around cheeks, eyes and mouth is normal or dry. these different types of skin calls for different treatments, so people with combination skin should access their skin regularly and use  different product on different areas of the Face.
  • SENSITIVE SKIN: can be dry, normal or oily and it’s characterized by delicacy. That is why we feel it is more of a skin condition than a type. it frequently reacts adversely to environment conditions and often requires special treatment in order to remain in good condition. The skin type is prone to oily type ingredients, fragrance oil and artificial colors.

TREATMENT: sensitive skin benefits greatly from natural, gentle skin care products             treatment including light steaming and some essential oils.

Simple daily routine you might want to consider no matter your skin type

  • Drink more water. Your skin will produce more sebum (oil) if it’s dehydrated to keep itself lubricated.
  • One of the most important things you can do for your skin is to stay healthy.
  • Your skin is part of you. It can be affected by your environment, products you use, your stress levels, diet, lifestyle choices and more.
  •  Exfoliation: This helps to remove dead skin cells, thus boosting tightness. Once or twice a week depending on skin e.g. some skins are very stubborn and have lot of dead cells which stop creams/soaps to be effective, such skin can exfoliate twice a week.

Stay healthy stay purely organic..
