Picking the Best Skin Products for Your Skin Type

Picking the Best Skin Products for Your Skin Type

While it would be nice to be able to simply buy every popular product for a skincare routine, skincare is not that simple. Every person has skin that is unique to them, making it important to have an individualized skin care routine. Make sure that you consider your skin type when deciding on products to include in your skincare routine. 

Mature Skin

As people age, the skin tends to lose elasticity and collagen. This results in fine lines, wrinkles, and the skin slowly beginning to sag. Because it no longer has its youthful firmness, it’s critical to include products that help stimulate the production of collagen in a skincare routine. This can reduce the signs of aging, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Skincare concerns and types also change as people age. It is more likely to be dry. In addition to a loss of collagen, people may notice more sunspots and other signs of discoloration. The skin can be even more sensitive. As you age, it’s critical to re-evaluate your skin type to make sure that the correct products are being used. 

Dry But Oily Skin

It’s common to mistake dry skin for oily skin. This is because the skin recognizes that it needs more hydration, leading to an increase in the production of sebum. Because there is so much sebum, most people think that they have oily skin when, in fact, they have dry skin. An easy way to tell is that dry skin typically feels tight and can be flaky. 

Dry Skin Calls For Hydrating Ingredients

Dry skin can easily flake away, resulting in once flawless makeup flaking off with it. The patchy uneven appearance can be embarrassing, which is why the skin needs to be infused with healthy, hydrating ingredients. 

Oily Skin

Oily skin can be hard to maintain. It often results in a shine, even though the person is not wearing makeup. The pores usually appear larger when a person has oily skin. Specific products are designed to help dry up oil, reduce shine and minimize the appearance of pores. 

Combination Skin

Combination skin means that the skin is both oily and dry. It’s most common for people to have an oily T-zone while the rest of the face is dry.  However, this is not the only scenario where we see this. 

Some people may have dry skin on their jawline, cheeks, or other areas, while the rest of the face is oily, too. Combination skin calls for a unique blend of products to treat the overproduction of sebum in addition to dryness.

I was super impressed with the care and attention I received at my chemical peel appointment with... Magdalen. She called me immediately I set up the appointment to know what products I was currently using which helped her to provide me with better guidance. She was very tentative and thorough on explaining with detail what she was doing and what products she was using on my face. I felt relaxed and at ease. I was pretty impressed with the final result. My face and neck have never looked better. Thanks Again Magdalend your Amazing! I definitely will recommend you to my friends and family.read more

I just had my appointment today and it was just as fast as she said! It was my first time getting... waxed and she was so sweet and took my focus off of the waxing itself. There was some pain, but it left just as quick as it came. I don’t have to worry about exfoliating or any other kind of after care, and I didn’t have to trim prior to the appointment either. Very low maintenance, quick, and great customer service - highly recommend!read more
