Dry skin usually feels tight throughout the day or after washing.
- Skin may be prone to flaking
- Appears dull
- Itchy, which is your skin's way of telling you to shed dead cells
- More common in colder climates or in the winter or fall
- Dry skin needs a gentle cleanser, followed by a heavier cream or oil containing hyalorinc acid
- Toner is not necessary for those with dry skin, as many toners can be drying
- Use a gentle exfoliator to rid your skin of dead skin cells
Normal skin is what we all want!
- Rare pimples
- No flaking or itching
- No excess oil or shine
- Maintain normal skin with a cleanser and moisturizer that is neither too heavy nor too light
- Spot treatment for pimples
- Normal skin can still be sensitive
Combination skin is the most common skin type.
- Oily T-zone but dry in other places
- Prone to breakouts, especially in the T zone area.
- Gentle cleanser with a light moisturizer on the T-zone and heavier moisturizer on dry spots
- Usually treated as oily skin
Oily skin is usually excessively oily, with large and congested pores.
- Prone to acne breakouts and blackheads
- Oily skin doesn’t necessarily mean that your skin is well-hydrated, though - it can still be over-worked and under-hydrated (dehydrated, not dry).
- More common in warmer climates or in the spring and summer
- Cleanser should be gentle & non-drying
- Moisturize with a gel or a light-weight moisturizer
- Use products with acne-fighting benefits, such as salicylic acid or tea tree oil
