Your skin is going to be there for life… So you might as well take the time to get to know it. I’ve already talked about some of the products you should consider incorporating into your skincare routine but working out what products are best for your skin is a completely different story. Every single skincare aliment has some product on the market but generally identifying your skin type will help point you in the right direction. This way you know the type of products that are designed for your skin type and what ingredients or product types work best for you. It's likely you fall into one of the basic categories:
Try: Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, Cetaphil Daily Facial
Try: Origins Zero Oil Moisturiser, Clarins Lotus Oil, Lush Dark Angels
DryDry skin can feel tight and flakey despite moisturising and may feel “stripped” after cleansing. The lack of oil being produced by the skin can make the skin flaky and delicate therefore reduces its natural ability as a protective barrier. Pollution, UV and change in weather can often make this skin type worse. Dry skincare focuses on the more moisturising and protective products, they are often quite thick and are designed to really sink deep into the skin.
Try: Bioderma Hydrabio Moisture Mask, Hydraluron, Clarins Extra Comfort Cleanser
Try: Origins United State Balancing Toner, Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser
SensitiveSensitive skin can come in many different forms. From skin thats sensitive to the environment, the weather, certain products, oils or even SPF. Sensitive skin types have to listen to their skin and react accordingly - very tricky to manage but not incurable.
Try: Origins Make A Difference Plus+, REN Hydracalm Cleansing Milk, Elemental Herbology Delicate Cleanse Facial Cleanser
