Combination skin or dry skin? Normal, blemished or sensitive skin? Every skin type has different characteristics. You’ll find all the important information you need so that you can choose the best skin care routine for your uniquely beautiful skin type.
Skin type 1: combination skin
Combination skin takes its name from the fact that it is a combination of two skin types:
Unproblematic skin: Often this is referred to as “normal” skin which is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced (not too oily and not too dry) skin combined with
Oily, shiny skin, often in combination with enlarged pores & small blemishes
Combination skin shines and tends to develop small blemishes – especially in the so-called T-zone between the forehead, nose and chin. By contrast, the cheek area is well-balanced or sometimes even tends towards dry skin. Choose a face care product that is specifically tailored to your skin type, in order to promote the restoration of the skin’s own moisture balance while reducing shine.
This is what combination skin is like:
tends to develop impurities in the T-zone
the cheek area is more dry
Your T-zone needs extra attention
Tips for combination skin
Use a face wash that cleanses your skin thoroughly before applying skin care products for your face.
Use lukewarm water instead of hot or ice-cold water.
Regularly use a moisturiser – the best moisturizers only need a hazelnut-sized amount!
Choose a product that is especially suited to combination skin.
Night cream ensures you wake up with skin that is refreshed and energised.
Skin type 2: dry skin
Does the skin on your face look rough and flaky? Dry skin lacks moisture and lipids – i.e. fats. It is therefore less elastic, may be quite sensitive, it is tight and, in many cases, tends to itch. It reacts to environmental influences in particular by becoming irritated. With special face care creams, you can restore its moisture stores and strengthen your skin’s protective barriers.
This is what dry skin is like:
tight and tends to itch
rough and flaky appearance
reacts quickly to external influences such as temperature
Dry skin’s moisture balance is extremely important
Tips for dry skin
You can help your skin from within by having a healthy diet. Drink 2 litres of still water every day.
Remember to use night cream that is well-suited to your skin type so that your skin rejuvenates while you sleep.
SKIN TYPE 3: UNPROBLEMATIC, WELL BALANCED SKIN
Unproblematic skin: Often this is referred to as “normal” skin which is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin (i.e. not too oily and not too dry). The skin on your face is supple and soft and looks fine-pored. Even committing occasional beauty crimes won’t do it too much harm. But to keep its healthy appearance, even unproblematic skin needs the best moisturiser and sun protection! It’s important to develop your personal skin care routine!
This is what normal skin is like:
soft, fine-pored, unproblematic
well circulated and elastic
Your skin likes routine
TIPS FOR UNPROBLEMATIC SKIN
Regular skin care routine for day and night keeps your skin fresh.
