Skin

Which skin type do you have? Your type depends on things such as how much water it has, which affects its comfort and elasticity, how oily it is, which affects its softness and how sensitive it is.

Dry Skin have almost invisible pores, dull or rough complexion, red patches, less elasticity, it can crack, peel, become itchy, irritated. Dry skin may be caused or made worse by your genes, aging or hormonal changes, weather such as wind, sun, or cold, ultraviolet radiation, indoor heating, long, hot baths and showers, ingredients in soaps, cosmetics, or cleansers and medications.

 

Oily Skin have enlarged pores, dull or shiny, thick complexion, blackheads, pimples or other blemishes. Oiliness can change depending upon the time of year or the weather. Things that can cause or worsen it include puberty or other hormonal imbalances, stress, heat or too much humidity.

 

Sensitive Skin can show up as redness, itching, burning or dryness. If your skin is sensitive, try to find out what your triggers are so you can avoid them. There are many possible reasons but often it’s in response to particular skin care products.

 

No matter what type of skin you have, use a broad spectrum sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays, avoid direct sunlight, and wear a hat and sunglasses, don’t smoke, stay hydrated, wash your skin gently but thoroughly every day and never wear makeup to bed, moisturize every day.
