Does your skin get dry?

What your skin type is and how to take care of it.

What your skin type needs this winter.

Regardless of skin type, winter is the season when most of us need to adjust our skincare routines. The mix of cold, dehydrating air and the lower temperature takes a toll, and not only on dry skin; these conditions affect combination and oily skin, too!

Skin Types

Dry Skin

A lack of moisture in the skin can result in your skin being dry. Your skin could feel tight, rough, flaky and uneven.

Dry skin can have:

  • Almost invisible pores
  • Dull, rough complexion
  • Red patches
  • Your skin is less elastic
  • More visible lines

Tips For Dry Skin

  1. Moisturize your skin regularly to keep it soft and hydrated.

  1. Don’t spend too much time in the shower
  2. Drink lots of water
  3. Use a humidifier to retain your skin’s natural moisture
  4. Use sunscreen to prevent your skin from getting dehydrated

 

Oily Skin

Oily skin is the result of excess sebum production. This skin type is prone to acne breakouts.

Your skin will feel greasy and look shiny.

Oily skin can have:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Dull or shiny, thick complexion
  • Blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes

 

Tips for Oily Skin

  1. Moisturize Regularly
  2. Stay Hydrated
  3. Wash Your Face Twice A Day

 

Combination Skin

Combination skin is a mix of oily skin and dry skin. Your skin can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin) and cheeks.

Combination skin can have:

  • Pores that look larger than normal, because they’re more open
  • Blackheads
  • Shiny skin

 

Tips For Combination Skin

  1. Use Cleansers

If you have combination skin, the pores in your T-zone are larger than the rest of your face. Harsh products may clog your pores. Using a gentle cleanser is recommended.

The Sebamed Sensitive cleansing bar, which is 100% soap and alkali free. It also supports and protects the natural barrier function of the skin’s acid mantle with pH 5.5 formulation.

  1. Exfoliate Gently And Once in A While

Exfoliating every day isn’t recommended for any skin type. It can remove necessary oils from your skin. When you exfoliate, don’t scrub your T-zone too much. Scrubbing too hard can damage your skin.

  1. Wear Sunscreen
  2. Maintain Two Separate Skin Care Routines

Products that work for dry skin may be harsh on oily skin. Follow a separate skincare regimen for your T-zone. Don’t use the same products for your T-zone and the rest of your face.

It’s good to know what your skin type is, so that you can care for it properly.
