Below are some things to take note of for each skin type:
- Dry skin: Dry skin can be a result of environmental factors, as well as being dehydrated and not drinking enough water. Skincare products containing hyaluronic acid is recommended for this skin type as it aids in the retention of moisture.
- Combination skin: Combination skin can be tricky to care for as certain parts of the face are oilier than others. When choosing a moisturizer, always go for one that is lightweight and water-based. This allows for better absorption and retention of moisture where it’s needed.
- Oily skin: As this skin type is prone to breakouts, you will not want to use products that contain harsh ingredients or exfoliators that irritate or strip your natural skin barrier. Keeping skin hydrated helps skin from over producing sebum.
- Additionally, sensitive skin can accompany any of the above skin types. This simply means that your skin is prone to irritation from certain ingredients commonly found in skincare products. To care for sensitive skin, always do a patch test on your arm before using new products on your face, and never introduce too many new ingredients at once.
