Just as your body type is unique, so is your skin type. Your skin likely has natural tendencies towards dryness or oiliness—or perhaps it’s a combination of both. Your skin might also be sensitive and react to certain ingredients and scented products.
At Well Within Beauty, we believe in a holistic approach to achieving radiant skin. Our line of natural, organic products addresses the needs of all skin types. It also combats signs of aging by fighting free radicals, boosting collagen and protecting against inflammation.
In addition to your skincare regime, adjustments to your diet and lifestyle can continue to revive and rejuvenate your skin. The first step is to identify your skin type so you can support your specific constitution.
When we refer to skin type, we’re focusing on the moisture your facial skin retains and tolerates, and how sensitive it is to various treatments. While you may experience more oiliness or dryness at certain times of the year or depending on your diet and stress levels, consider in general how your skin mostly feels.
You’ll probably notice one of the following categories best reflects your skin’s predisposition.
People with normal skin have few complaints about oiliness, dryness or irritation on their face. If this sounds like you, prioritize maintenance so you can enjoy good circulation and clear skin for years to come.
Those with oily skin have more active sebaceous glands and generally have shininess around their noses, foreheads, cheeks and mouths. This overproduction of natural oils may be due to genetics, diet, hormones, or cosmetic products. If you have this skin type, you may be concerned about acne breakouts and large pores.
Dry: Dry skin sits on the other end of the spectrum from oily skin—its sebum production is too low and thus may demonstrate flakiness, cracking or tightness. The winter months prove especially challenging for people with this skin type, as the harsh, cold and dry air can compound moisture problems.
Combination skin means you might see shininess around your nose and forehead, but the rest of your face will feel and look dry. This skin type can be tricky to treat, but with the right approach, you can achieve moisture balance.
If you have sensitive skin, you likely shy away from scented facial products, as they cause your skin to become red or itchy. You may have a skin condition, and you’re aware you need to be cautious with new products so as not to further irritate your skin.
Now that you’ve identified your skin type, let’s explore some strategies you can implement to nourish, heal and protect your face and body.
