Dry, sensitive, oily or mixed. The basis of skin care is to evaluate the structure of your skin correctly.
In fact, every person's skin type is unique to the person, just like fingerprints. It has no equal. However, it is possible to make a certain grouping by looking at the general characteristics of the skin such as oil condition, moisture content and thinness. It may be easier to know the general characteristics of your skin and understand its needs with such classifications. Especially when choosing the right cosmetics and care products for your skin, you need to know your skin type. There are 4 different skin types, dry, oily, combination and sensitive, according to the grouping we use most frequently to determine the skin type.
Dry skin means skin with reduced moisture content. Dry skin type is often structural, but can also occur as a result of using inappropriate washing products such as soap. Dryness manifests itself in the form of scaling, tightness, roughness and itching on the skin. In addition, dry skin wrinkles prematurely and lines due to aging are more pronounced on dry skin. If you have a dry skin type, it means that you have to moisturize your skin every day. Milk form cleansers and creams enriched with special vitamins may be preferred for daily care. With a care done once a week with moisture masks and vegetable oils, the reduced moisture content of the skin can be increased again.
It is the type of skin that most bothers the person in daily life and where skin problems such as acne occur most frequently. Although you wash your skin and go to bed at night, when you touch your skin as soon as you wake up in the morning, if you touch your skin almost everywhere, you have oily skin. Although oily skin is most common in adolescents, many factors such as various hormonal changes, environmental factors, and diet can cause oily skin. Oily skin manifests itself with shine, enlarged pores and numerous black spots. If you have this type of skin type, your indispensable care product should be washing gels. Removing the excess oil produced by the skin by washing at least twice a day, in the morning and evening, and tightening the pores with the help of a tonic containing fruit acids, if possible, after each washing,It will reduce the occurrence of blackheads and pimples.
Combination skin is the condition in which part of the face is dry and part is oily. Generally, while the cheeks are dry, excessive fat is seen in the forehead, nose and chin area, which is called the 'T' zone. It requires a much richer care as it shows the characteristics of two different skin types. The important point in the care of this skin type is to remove excess oil and not dry the skin. Water-based cleansing gels specially developed for mixed skins can provide a clearer and more matte appearance by cleansing the oil in problematic areas due to the lack of oily content. Professional skin treatments performed at regular intervals will provide the best breathing and degreasing of the skin in this complex skin type.
As the name suggests, this skin type, which is very sensitive, gives a lot of trouble to the person and requires careful care like baby skin. Dry, oily or combination skin can also be sensitive. Because sensitivity is not related to the oil or moisture balance of the skin. Sensitive skin type most often complains of rash. All kinds of environmental factors such as heat, cold, sun, stress, weather changes can cause sudden rashes on the skin. People with this skin type often have complaints like "Whatever I apply on my skin, it touches me, I cannot use any products." It is very important to use products that will reduce redness and strengthen and nourish the skin structure, especially in sensitive skin. Soft textured products in foam form can be preferred as a cleaner.It will be beneficial to use moisturizers with soothing properties to reduce the redness of the skin.
