Normal or combination
Now if you feel like you neither have a dry, oily, dehydrated nor sensitive skin, congratulations, you are God’s favorite. You have normal skin. But even for you, it is still important to maintain a proper routine. Although it is sometimes tempting to not care too much about your skin, I promise you, you’re 50-year-old self will be very happy you did. On a daily basis, we are getting exposed to damaging goods for your skin, like UV-light, pollution, or just make-up. And a big part of skin care is cleansing and protecting your skin from all that.
Another option might be you recognize both types, and then I’m very sorry my dear, but you are not God’s favorite. You suffer from combined skin. And that can be very confusing, but no worries, I’m here to explain how to treat this type as well. Most people that suffer from this skin type, have an oily T-zone (your forehead, nose, and chin) while the rest of your skin is normal to dry.
If I may recommend, even if you don’t really recognize any signs of dehydrated skin, it is still a good thing to include hydrating steps in your routine. A little hydration never hurt anybody. Most of the time products will say what skin type they were made for, but during this series, I will give you some more information about different ingredients and formulas and which ones you should choose according to your skin type.
So basically, you can have normal, oily, or dry skin or a combination of these three. And on top of that, you can have dehydrated and/or sensitive skin. Now that you have this information, it will be easier to pick out the right products for your skin. Something I will discuss in the upcoming weeks.
