As you look around, you may notice different skin issues or see that person whose skin is so flawless that you wonder how much makeup it took them to look so perfect. Although many cosmetic products can help to conceal our skin’s flaws, your daily skin care products are crucial to helping skin at the source, not just the surface. As a contract manufacturer, Dynamic Blending knows that skin is unique, but first and foremost, what type of skin do you have?
According to WebMD, some common skin types are normal, combination, dry, and oily. Although there are MANY more skin types out there, most people fall into those listed above. Some may need to visit a dermatologist for more advanced skin conditions: eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, etc., since those often need treatments beyond what your drugstore shelf can offer. Knowing your skin type is crucial to its health. You want products to work for your skin type, not against it.
Remember, not everything is going to work for every person. Skin types are often grouped together, but even people with the same skin types cannot always use the same products. You do what works for you, and to determine that, you have to try a product for a reasonable amount of time to assess its benefits or lack thereof. It’s always a good idea to visit a dermatologist and see what they recommend as a good starting point. We will give you just a few brief definitions and suggestions.
Normal skin has fine pores, smooth texture, radiance, little to no blemishes, and is not typically prone to sensitivity. if you are blessed with normal skin, you are picking products mostly based on personal preference or to just maintain your already perfect skin and prevent any challenges it may face as you age.
Combination skin is often oily in the t-zone (forehead, chin, and nose), with normal or dry cheeks, enlarged pores, and some acne. you will want to ensure that you choose a gentle, water-soluble face cleanser; a non-irritating toner; and a moisturizer specifically designed for combination skin, and yes, they do exist!
Dry skin is flaky, dull, has patches of redness, and lacks elasticity. it accounts for 40% of visits to dermatologists! be sure to go for intense moisturizing products, but be careful, because even if a product says it’s moisturizing, it can contain water-based ingredients, which will only make your dry skin worse. your goal is to restore moisture while creating a healthy barrier that helps retain it. many recommend going for rich, creamy moisturizers, with organic/non-toxic ingredients.
Oily skin has enlarged pores, dull and/or shiny complexion, blemishes, and a thicker appearance. it is highly recommended that folks with this skin type have a twice-a-day regimen, morning and night, using things like tea tree oil (and other select essential oils) to help dissolve the excess sebum; makes sense, right? do not assume that because your skin is oily that you do not need to moisturize—this is not true! you will want a moisturizer that will help find a balance with the oils, while still maintaining a healthy amount of moisture.
Your skin is unique and should be treated with products that reflect its needs. You can go with organic products, drugstore products, or products recommended by your dermatologist; as long as it works for YOU.
