Best products for different skin types

Every person has a different skin type. Some people have dry and flaky skin, while others may suffer from oily and acne-prone skin. Knowing what type of skin you have can help determine the best way to care for your face in order to prevent unnecessary breakouts and irritation. Here we will look into the best products for different skin types

Dry Skin: Whether you’re suffering from dry skin all year round, or just during the cold winter months, the most important thing to do for your skin is to maintain hydration. Using a moisturizer can help prevent dead skin cells by keeping the skin plump and smooth. The fewer dead skin cells, the less likely your pores will get clogged and cause a breakout.

Oily Skin: People with oily skin tend to have more of a shine on their face throughout the day, mainly in their T-zone (forehead, nose and chin areas). Oily skin produces excessive amounts of sebum which can lead to more frequent breakouts. If you have oily skin, try to minimize the amount of products on your face by only using acne treatment where needed. Try to stay away from moisturizers that are heavy or greasy, opt for light weight serums instead that will allow your skin to breathe.

Combination Skin: This type of skin is when the T-zone is oily and the rest of the face is dry. Using a light moisturizer for your dry areas and an oil-free hydrating gel in the T-zone is best when dealing with combination skin. Since having both types of skin can cause hydration issues, using products that are recommended for each type will help balance out your skin.

Sensitive Skin: Whether your skin tends to get dry and flaky, or if you suffer from more of an irritation like redness and swelling, having sensitive skin can cause a lot of problems for some people. If you want to treat the symptoms that your face is giving you due to sensitivity, using products that are developed for sensitive skin will help with the redness and swelling caused by irritation. Look for ingredients like lavender, tea tree oil and cucumber extract which are known for soothing dry and irritated skin.

Acne Prone Skin: People who suffer from acne have a thicker layer of skin compared to those with normal skin, making it harder for products to absorb into the skin’s surface. Since acne is a form of inflammation, it can increase redness and irritation which can cause scarring if left untreated. The best way to treat acne is to use products that have ingredients designed for clearing up blemishes and preventing future breakouts. Look for salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and sulfur that target and kill the bacteria that causes acne.

Normal Skin: If your skin tends to be very even and nothing really causes you problems, you most likely have normal skin type. Normal skin is great because it’s not too dry or oily which makes it very easy to care for. Using products specifically made for either dry or oily skin can cause problems, so sticking to products that are designed for your skin type is the best way to go. Since you have little to no issues with your skin, using skincare that targets anti-aging and wrinkle prevention will be most beneficial for keeping your face looking young and healthy.

If you’re still unsure of what might be causing your skin to have problems, it’s best to consult with a dermatologist in order to get the correct diagnosis. You can then use what you’ve learned in this article to determine which products are best for your face.
