What skin type are you? Dry skin

31 January 2018

Knowing your skin type is essential for your correct skin-care.

The role of the skin is fundamental as protection  in certain circumstances or seasonality. This is why it is very important to take time to learn your skin’s specific and actual needs.

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it is as complex and intelligent as your other vital organs.

Knowing your skin will help you to choose the right treatments to receive in a beauty centre and the correct skin-care products to use at home, for a healthier and radiant skin.

There are mainly three skin types:

  • Dry skin
  • Normal/Combination (which is a mix of dry and oily skin)
  • Oily skin
In order to determine your skin type, ask advice to a professional beauty therapist. If you want to do it yourself at home, you can follow this simple method:  
  • Cleanse your face with a mild cleanser and gently pat dry. Leave skin bare (do not apply any additional product).
  • After 30 minutes, check if there is any shine on your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead

After more time

  • Do you feel your skin dry and you feel it tight? most likely your skin is dry.
  • If there is shine on your nose and forehead, your skin is most likely combination.
  • If there is shine also on your cheeks in addition to your forehead and nose, you most likely have oily skin.

Easy, isn’t it?

Dry Skin

During the day dry skin can feel tight, and may experience noticeable flaking.

Dry skin is largely due to genetics, environmental factors such as lifestyle, diet too strong, hormonal changes or climate.

One of the primary factors in dry skin is dehydration.

So drink plenty of water, which help to keep the body hydrated.

How to nourish dry skin

Daily exfoliation with delicate and non-strong products, helps to promote the cellular renewal of the skin without removing skin natural oils.

Once the barrier of dead cells is removed, the skin is ready to be nourished with moisturizing and nourishing skin-care products and treatments.
