Since there is more than one type of skin it is important that the products on the market are varied. Of course, this is easier said than done and finding a suitable cosmetic can be a case of trial and error over a long period of time. Luckily the team here at The Healthy Living and Fitness have you covered as we are going to go over each skin type and the suitable products one by one…
When you have dry skin it is best that you stay far away from any products that are going to increase this dryness, and that includes powder! In fact, any and all powder cosmetics should be thrown into the trash as they are the number one cause of flaky foundation. Dry skin is best suited towards tinted moisturisers in order to provide both cover and hydration at the same time.
On the other hand oily skin means that the sebaceous glands are working in overdrive and powder based products work to absorb this oil without over drying the skin. Depending on how oily your skin is you may have to apply touch ups throughout the day but you should definitely avoid liquid based cosmetics as these are too wet for your skin type.
With combination skin it is all about finding a balance. You need a product that fends of dryness whilst keeping oil production at bay which is why BB creams are often the best call. This is because such products are relatively weightless so they will not shift with oil production however they still have moisturising properties.
If your skin flares up easily then you may have sensitive skin and this means that you need to check the ingredients rather than the product type. Most of the time people with sensitive skin need to avoid cosmetics that use harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances as these can be too irritating. Try to find products that contain nourishing and natural ingredients and avoid those that contain parabens, sulphates and GMO’s.
Trial and error means that it can take a long time to track down the product that is most suitable however by looking at what your skin requires in order to be healthy you can find what you need much faster. To find out more information, get in contact with a member of the team today!
