What is your skin type? | REVIEWS

8th November 2020
"Do you really have oily skin? Or is it combined skin?"

Skin is the biggest organ of your part and taking care of it sometimes is a huge task. Prior to implying various steps on taking care of your skin, you need to know what your skin type. You may put on heavy oils without really knowing your skin and may clog the beautiful pores suffocating them. Or, you may put on some heavy moisturizers that will reduce natural oil from your skin resulting in extra dryness. So, knowing your skin type is very essential. You need to understand your skin type in order to use the appropriate products to bring balance to your skin and make it healthy.

Every person's skin varies from each other. You may have dry skin but its level of dryness differs from any other person with dry skin. It's not possible to divide every skin type as it will create millions of types. So, basically, there are 3 types of skin i.e. Dry, Oily, and combination. Let's get to know them in brief.

How to know your skin type?

First of all, cleanse your face thoroughly with a mild cleanser and pat dry. Leave it for about 30 minutes without applying any other moisturizer, serums, and cream. After 30 minutes, if you have a shiny T-zone i.e. nose and forehead, you have a combined skin. And, if you get parched skin that feels tight and you face difficulty while smiling, you have dry skin. And, if you get a shine on your cheeks, and chin including your T-zone, then you have oily skin.

Skin-type

Dry Skin

Dry skin feels tight throughout the day. You may feel rough patches in your skin as they can be all flaky sometimes. People with dry skin face difficulties and pain in their faces when the skin folds. Dry skin is often caused due to genetics, environmental factors such as lifestyle & diet, hormonal changes, and climate; moreover, dehydration also causes dry skin- so, make sure you drink plenty of water to avoid any form of dryness. Also, it's better to avoid any form of alcoholic drinks and caffeine to have glowing skin. With daily exfoliation and moisturization, you can have a glowing face without any dry patches. If you exfoliate before moisturizing, then your skin can absorb moisture adequately.

Oily Skin

If you have shine on your entire face including nose, forehead, cheeks, and chin, then you probably have oily skin. Often when you wake up, your face will be all wet with the natural oils; furthermore, your pillow may also get wet due to the face oils. Excess oil in the face may leave your face congested and clogged which will make your skin unhealthier and difficult to breathe. Oily skins are often prone to acne; so, you have to take proper care of your skin and maintain balance with the natural oil. The best thing about having oily skin is that it has natural moisture and is less prone to wrinkles. With a gentle physical exfoliation with anti-bacterial ingredients, you can get rid of acne, and dark spots resulting from recent skin breakouts; and can also bring balance to your natural oils unclogging your pores.

Combined Skin

If you have shine on the nose and forehead, then you have combined skin. Combined skin is often moisturized in the T-zone. Normally, a person with combined skin has low to no breakouts. Daily gentle exfoliation is also important to keep the t-zone and cheek areas balances. Moisturizers with a gel-like texture are absorbed more quickly and less likely to cause breakouts. Start with a small amount and increase as needed to avoid over-moisturizing and stressing the skin.

How to choose the right sunscreen?

14th October 2020
"Live, laugh, WEAR SUNSCREEN!"

Regardless of your skin type, it's important to shield your skin from the sun. It's not up for discussion why we ought to wear sunscreen. But it's not easy to choose the right sunscreen. There's an explanation of why people despise things;   being chalky, greasy, and just all-around annoying.

But what kind of sunscreen to use? That might be a question that's been ringing in your head! But don't you worry. We are right here! Here, we have compiled a list of 4 tips to make your sunscreen use better and productive, and certainly less annoying.

Broad Spectrum

Choose a sunscreen covered by a "broad spectrum." Sunscreens guard against all UVA and UVB rays with this mark. Both sunscreen materials guard against UVB radiation, the major source of skin cancers, and sunburn. UVA rays do, however, often lead to skin cancer and premature aging. It is possible to mark a "broad spectrum" for products that pass a certain test. Products that are not broad spectrum must be warned that they only protect against sunburn, not skin cancer or skin aging.

 

Sun Protection Factor 

spf

SPF is a measure of how much UVB light can filter out from a sunscreen. An SPF of at least 30 is recommended by dermatologists. About 93 percent of UVB rays are blocked by SPF 15, while about 97 percent of UVB rays are blocked by SPF 30. An SPF of 30 or higher is recommended by the ADA. Applying adequate sunscreen to every exposed area of skin every day is necessary. We recommend putting a coat of SPF 30 all over the body for a half hour before leaving home on days you will be outdoors for a long period of time and then reasserting every two hours. It's smart to grab your sunscreen any time you get out of the pool while you're swimming.

 

Skin Type

skin-type

Make sure that your sunscreen is labeled as 'non-comedogenic' if you have acne or oily skin, which means that it's been shown not to block pores. Look for sunscreen or sunscreen moisturizers that contain hydrating ingredients if you have dry skin.

Choose physical or mineral sunscreen for delicate skin. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are physical sunscreen features that shield the skin; these two components will not hurt or sting the eyes. Sitting on top of the skin, they form a shield that will protect you.

 

Water Resistance

water-resistant

After a certain time (either 40 or 80 minutes) in water or when sweating, 'Water-Resistant Sunscreens' maintain their specified SPF strength. If the sunscreen still covers the SPF written on the label after submersion into the hot bubbling water, then the sunscreen will make a water-resistant argument. So check your sunscreen if it works for 40 minutes or 80 minutes before going out in sun, or swimming. 

Just because a sunscreen is called 'water-resistant: 40 minutes' does not indicate that for 40 minutes you can just sit in the water. It basically means that you may begin to see a decrease in SPF safety after 40 minutes in the pool, and you may need to reapply sunscreen to retain its original SPF value.

Types of Face Mask for Glowing Skin

22nd October 2020
"Get your skin glowing!"

For a cause, face skincare masks are a crucial phase in most competent spa facials. They will easily infuse formulated ingredients into the skin to fix a laundry list of problems (dryness, inflammation, discomfort, and more) and have almost every help the skin requires (firming, brightening, purifying, the list goes on). Best of all, with every budget, you can get the complexion-boosting benefits of a face mask at home, too.

Sheet Masks.

sheet-mask

The most flexible type of face masks out there is potentially sheet masks. For a particular skincare requirement, most other styles of face masks are made. Clay masks, for instance, are good for oily skin, but not as effective for those with dry skin. For dry skin, but too strong for oily or acne-prone skin, cream masks are a hydration aid. But for any skin type, there are sheet masks made.

Masks of Clay (or Mud)

For decades, Clay Masks have been popular. There are a few distinct types of clay, with the most common being bentonite and kaolin clay. There are many medicinal applications for both forms of clay.

Clay masks are perfect for acne-prone skin, with an established capacity to absorb toxins and extract them from the skin. However, they might be dry, so if you have dry skin, do your research.

Cream mask

cream-mask

A cream mask could be for you if you have dry skin and need a hydration lift. For advanced skin, cream masks are preferable. If you have mixed skin, they can be used for spot treatment as well.

Peel-off mask

peel-off-mask

Peel-off masks can be perfect for acne or refining pores, much like clay masks. When peeling it off, you'll feel a slight exfoliation, which is perfect for those who need it. Blackhead peel-off masks are, on their own, like a mini-facial.

Charcoal Mask

charcoal-mask

In the charcoal mask type, you can note a certain overlap. There are masks of charcoal sheets, cream masks, peel-off masks, and winter masks of mud and the skin looks dark and brittle, or whether you live in a place that's

In both of these masks, activated charcoal is a common component for skin detoxification. Great with complexions and acne that are sticky.
