Which products for which skin type

Now that you know everything about the different skin types, let's talk about creating a skincare routine and which ingredients work well together.

Acne-prone skin

You may have acne-prone skin in addition to another skin type, such as dry, oily, combination, normal or sensitive. Acne can be caused by clogged pores, the spread of bacteria, stress, hormones and genetics. If your skin is also dry and/or sensitive, then some products may be too harsh on your skin, such as those containing alcohol. We recommend that you avoid products with lanolin, as well as scrubs, which can cause further breakouts.

Using a breakout eliminator will help you target the bacteria causing your breakouts, as well as detoxify and rejuvenate your skin. This will also help with other problems that go hand-in-hand with acne, such as redness, scarring and irritated skin.

Dry skin

You may also have dry skin that is flaky and leaves uncomfortable patches on your skin. If this is the case, then we recommend products that are moisturising and will nourish your skin.

These may include hydrating ingredients such as Vitamin B3, Sodium Hyaluronate and Macadamia Oil.

In addition to using a day cream with SPF and night cream with potent vitamins, we recommend that you also pay attention to your eyes and lips. Using a hydration concentrate will make sure that you target specific areas that are in need of intense hydration. This will also improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as help with sensitivity.

Sensitive skin

Lastly, you may have sensitive skin. Skin that is sensitive may react negatively to certain ingredients, causing irritation, redness and itchiness. You may find that you are allergic to specific ingredients. We suggest that you are gentle with your sensitive skin.

Some ingredients that we recommend for those with sensitive skin are Sodium Hyaluronate, Avocado Extract, Macadamia Extract, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin B.

Sensitive skin may feel difficult to work with, especially if your skin is prone to harsh reactions. A Vitamin B3 complex will be gentle on your skin, while also helping with fine lines, wrinkles, breakouts, scarring, redness, broken capillaries and uneven skin tone.

Finding the right skin care routine isn't just about a number of steps to follow but finding the products and professional treatment that are right for each type of skin.
