Determine skin type
Why are regimen products for my specific skin type so important?
Skin type is the single most important piece of information needed to select cosmetics properly. Skincare regimens which include a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer created to be used concurrently are more likely to be effective and less irritating than randomly selected products. They are very helpful for achieving good balance and reduce the possibility that we select the wrong products for our skin type.
How do I determine my skin type?
You know you have oily skin if:
- Shortly after you wash your face, you experience oily shine and feel like you need to wash it again.
- You are prone to breakouts.
- You have clogged pores.
You know you have normal / combination skin if:
- Shortly after your wash your face, it feels oily in the T-Zone and dry on the cheeks and outer edges of the face.
- You occasionally have blemishes and clogged pores.
- Your skin is healthy looking with a smooth texture
You know you have dry skin if:
- Shortly after you wash your face, your face feels tight and dry.
- You experience peeling or flaky skin.
- Your skin looks dull.
Tips by skin type
Do not overly exfoliate your skin or use harsh astringents that can dry out your skin’s surface. When that happens, your skin automatically produces more oil to compensate for the dry feeling. Using the appropriate products for your skin type is the best way to take care of your skin. Try facial Care System for oily skin, which includes an oil-free moisturizer — an essential step to normalize the oiliness of your skin.
This type of skin can be tricky as it is a combination of oily and dry. Your T-Zone will have more oily shine, but your cheeks will be drier. The proper skin care regimen will preserve your skin’s natural emollients and help normalize your oily areas for the perfect balance. Using the right Facial Care system for normal/combo skin is the best way to care for your skin type.
The best way to condition dry skin is to be sure to tone before applying moisturizer. It softens skin and makes skin more accepting of your moisturizer. After toning, apply the moisturizer to damp skin.
How do I determine if I’m ready for anti-aging products?
- You are looking to prevent future signs of aging.
- You are experiencing lines and wrinkles around your eyes and your mouth.
- You are hoping to minimize the lines that you currently have.
- What do I do if I notice crow’s feet around my eyes?
The skin in the eye area is more delicate than the rest of your face and needs special treatment; that is why it is important to use cream that is specially formulated for this area. Applying an eye cream also requires a very light touch, so always apply with your ring finger, in a gentle patting motion, on the bone, and never tug or pull at the delicate skin. Anti-Aging Eye Cream is the perfect way to help minimize and prevent those fine lines around your eyes.
Why use an Anti-Aging Booster Serum?
A booster serum is applied to cleansed and toned skin before applying your regular moisturizer and improves its effectiveness. Any good quality Anti-Aging Booster Serum, formulated with an exclusive Moringa Seed Complex, helps diminish the look of fine lines and improves your skin tone and texture, so you get a double benefit from a single product.
Why use a different moisturizer at night?
It is important to take care of your skin both day and night, but because your skin functions differently while you sleep; it’s the perfect time to give it an extra boost. Just as your body renews for a new day while you sleep, so does your skin. While a daytime moisturizer protects your skin and maintains hydration during your waking hours, a night cream will enhance your skin’s renewal process while you sleep. Day moisturizers are formulated to improve makeup wear and protect against the environment/sun in addition to simply moisturizing the skin. Night treatment, not having those limitations, can be formulated to give maximum skin renewal benefits.
