So read on, and take note!
Normal skin: not all that glitters is gold
Normal skin is pretty much what we all dream of having. It is firm, smooth, soft to the touch, pores are not visible, it has a healthy pink colour and there are no impurities whatsoever..
If you are an adult with this type of skin, you are very lucky and probably envied in your inner circle. The reality is, however, that normal skin is most characteristic of the youngest childrenChildren and babies.
Why? Because its development process has not yet reached its peak and its skin is still sufficiently "new" that it is not too affected by excesses, poor nutrition or hormonal changes.
However, it's not all that pretty. This type of skin is now perfect, but if not properly cared for, the effects will be felt later in life.Excess sebum, dryness, premature expression lines and many other problems.
First and foremost, you have to assume that changes in your skin will happen sooner or later, as is normal as time goes by. But if you take good care of it, you will look enviable for many, many years to come. So, above all, don't neglect moisturising and do the right five-step routine: cleansing, exfoliation, serum, moisturising and sun protection.
Facts about dry skin
Dry skin is characterised by the production of less sebum than normal. This causes the skin's hydration to be poorer, which means that will prematurely develop wrinkles and fine lines.
At first glance, there is flaking, a dull appearance, a lack of elasticity and, in extreme cases, cracks and calluses.
This type of skins it needs extra hydration, no matter what. What do we recommend?
- Deep moisturising, and if you can supplement it with a serum and a EYE CONTOUR.
- Try to use non-drying products, such as gels. Opt for thicker creams with a good moisturising base.
- Masks are your greatest allies, especially those with almond, argan or olive oil in their composition.
What if you have oily skin?
Oily skin is the opposite of dry skin: sebum production is excessive. People suffering from this skin type describe it as a "constant oily feeling". It is the most common skin type among the male public.The skin is thicker and the pores are larger.
The sebaceous glands produce so much sebum that the skin is slippery, shiny in many areas, and above all are extremely prone to acne and blackheads. In the most severe cases, severe inflammation occurs and antibiotics are necessary to calm the outbreaks.
A very common mistake that is made with this type of skin is to think that it is precisely this excess sebum that also causes an excess of hydration, and nothing could be further from the truth. Oily skins should be moisturised in exactly the same way as other skins.. Because no, sebum does not moisturise, sebum is the cause of permanent pimples, blackheads and impurities.
The products you should use if you have oily skin are different from those for dry skin:
- For starters, forget dense oils such as olive or argan oil, they will further accentuate the oily feeling on your skin. Opt for light oils, such as jojoba or calendula.
- la gel texture for moisturisers will be your best asset, they will leave you feeling more refreshed. Very important: they must be non-comedogenic (i.e. they must not clog pores).
- make a point of cleansing, especially exfoliation. Your skin accumulates more impurities thanks to sebum, so this is an essential step you should take at least twice a day.
A plus: combination skin and its characteristics
This is a special type of skin that is characterised by having excess sebum in the famous T-zoneThe skin on the cheeks, nose and chin. On the rest of the face, the skin is normal and maybe even dry.
It is also a very common feature of sensitive skin.They immediately notice the abrasive or oily effects of any product, which is why we must be especially careful with the components of our cosmetic products.
- daily cleansing is essential, morning and evening.
- When exfoliating, try not to exfoliate every day, but a couple of times a week.
- as for oily skin, only light oils.
- pay special attention when using sunscreen, many are too dense, opt for light textures.
