How To Choose the Right Skin Care Products for Your Skin Type

A glowing, smooth complexion at any age is one of the best makeovers you can give to your appearance. People notice your eyes and smile immediately, but they also admire a healthy, radiant complexion. Anyone can develop beautiful skin when they choose the proper formulas that benefit their individual skin type.

Modern low-waste skin care doesn’t always have to mean pricey products or fancy bottles. You can achieve soft glowing skin with eco-friendly ingredients that pair with a natural lip balm and an exquisite vegan hair and body oil to offer a multi-beauty purpose. 

Step 1: Your Skin Type Serves as Your Beauty Blueprint

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) identified five skin types: oily, dry, normal, combination and sensitive. The amount of sebum or oil your skin produces will indicate your skin type. You can determine your skin type after a simple at-home test: wash your face with a gentle cleanser, rinse and pat dry, followed by a 30-minute wait.

  • You have oily skin if your face appears shiny all over.
  • You have dry skin if your skin is flaky and your face feels tight.
  • You have combination skin if you observe oiliness only on the T-zone.
  • You have normal skin if your face feels hydrated and is not oily.

Dermatologists add that any skin type can also be sensitive or prone to acne breakouts. Every skin type needs daily cleansing and moisturizing to maintain balance and protect the skin barrier or the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis.

Step 2: Great Skin Is Calm, Cool and Collected

Skin care experts believe that a nice complexion thrives with a few excellent products. When you overdo the cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturizing, you can throw off your skin type, which can often result in red or inflamed skin. Applying some products can irritate your skin.

Look for formulas that calm the skin and keep the skin barrier functioning by retaining moisture, especially water. It's no wonder that sustainable skin care has become popular today; the ingredients are thoughtful, effective and naturally sourced from botanicals. Great skin care shouldn’t be complicated. Some of these ingredients are apricot oil, bamboo powder, brown algae extract, cocoa butter, dill leaf, green tea extract, shea butter and more.

Step 3: Understanding the Skin Care pH Factor

You can have any of the five skin care types and desire a brighter and smoother complexion, but if your products’ pH numbers are off, your complexion may not achieve the amazing results you’re after. That is another determining factor to keep in mind.

The acid mantle is a part of the skin barrier that acts as the chemical protective layer of your skin. According to dermatologists, the acid mantle naturally performs at its best when the pH numbers are between 4.5 and 6.2. 

Simple routines with multi-functional products that are formulated for all skin types are a wonderful option. Naturally sourced ingredients that are powerful yet gentle, pH-balanced, low-waste, vegan and cruelty-free are an amazing approach to more beautiful skin, and there’s no guesswork involved.
