As skin care formulations have reached new heights in terms of the results they can produce, it becomes even more important to find the right products for your skin type and needs. Specialised skin care that addresses your specific skin concerns is sure to provide you with the best possible results. Before you can select the best products, you must have a basic understanding of how your skin differs from your best friend’s, your sister’s or your favourite celebrity.
Identifying Skin Type
The first step in choosing appropriate skin care is identifying your specific skin type from the following list:
- Normal Skin – normal skin is not too dry or too oily, generally has few blemishes and does not become irritated easily by topical solutions, this skin is even skin toned, well hydrated and firm to touch
- Dry Skin – dry skin creates a rough, dull complexion that often feels tight after washing and shows more visible lines than other skin types
- Oily Skin – prone to breakouts, oily skin is also characterised by a shiny complexion, blackheads and enlarged pores
- Combination Skin – dry in some areas and oily in others, this skin type may need more than one skin care regimen to keep the entire complexion looking good
Determining Skin Concerns
In addition to identifying your skin type, you need to take into consideration any specific skin concerns you might have. For example, your skin may be a victim of excessive sun damage, or you may be struggling with skin conditions like eczema, rosacea or acne. The good news is there are skin care formulations today that address these specific concerns quite effectively, allowing you to achieve healthier, more vibrant skin no matter what conditions you might be dealing with.
