skin type

Knowing your skin type is absolutely necessary in order to make the right decision to follow a proper skincare routine. You should always choose the beauty treatments, products, and tips according to skin requirements. Whether your skin is dry, normal, combination, oily, sensitive or acne-prone, it needs special attention based on your skin type. At some extent, skin type is genetically determined – meaning that you are born with it. However, it also largely depends on your eating habits and your skincare regime.

To look great for forever, start with very initial step – figure out what is your skin type. It will help you to match the best-recommended methods to improve your looks and reduce the effect of aging. In this article, we will tell you basic skin type recommendations to get a smooth, young and gorgeous skin tone.

Normal Skin:

Being the least problematic type, it still requires cleaning, nourishing, and moisturizing. Here, are few recommendations for normal skin type:

  • Refresh your skin with rose water or an alcohol-free astringent in morning. Then use a mild or non-greasy cream, prefer from natural ingredients.
  • Good Quality Makeup but not overindulge.
  • Before bed, wash your face with mild facewash and can use an oil-based nourishing cream.

Dry Skin:

It requires more thorough care since it is prone to flaking, wrinkling, and fast aging. Here, are few recommendations for dry skin type:

  • Use only natural and rich skin-care products such as sea butter, extra-virgin oil, herbal oils, etc. Let your skin absorb it before applying the makeup.
  • Do not use tap water, if needed use sparkling water.
  • Clean the face with mild cleansing milk or herbal infusions.

Oily Skin:

It requires the exact opposite approach, used for dry skin type. Put an emphasis on removing excess oil from the skin through hydrating, cleaning enlarged pores, and preventing or treating acne:

  • Wash your face 2-3 times a day, but use mild soap only once in some day else oil glands will be activated to produce even more sebum.
  • Use only non-greasy moisturizers and tone your face often with alcohol-free herbal tonics or ice cubes.
  • Apply facemask like clay, papaya, or yogurt for drying and hydrating once a week. If suffering from acne, cut sugar and carbohydrate from your diet.

Hopefully, these tips will help you to maintain your skin tone. A popular Russian saying states that, after the age of 30, a woman looks the way she deserves. So, take care your skin if you want a forever glowing and healthy skin.
