All Skin Types
There are five primary skin types. Oily, dry, normal, combination, and sensitive. Each skin type needs its unique regime to keep it youthful and healthy with natural clarity. Healthy skin doesn’t come naturally with our environment and living conditions. The challenges that some skin types’ characteristics deliver can make it tricky to manage. Hormones play a big part in the management of teenage skin types. Sun protection and cleansing are paramount in managing —giving your skin the customized care and protection it needs now and for years to come.
Oily Skin generally produces an excess of sebum that causes the skin to feel greasy and have a shiny glow. This oily has excess oil throughout the T-zone Chin, Nose and Forehead areas. Teenagers can experience more sebum flow which causes breakouts if not controlled, causing extra acne blemishes, blackheads, and whiteheads.
Oily skin may hide wrinkles as ageing progresses; however, they are generally more prone to enlarged pores.
People often need clarification when thinking oily skin produces more natural oils and requires less moisture than other skin types. The skin still needs to be nourished and hydrated. Regular exfoliation is essential to keep the pores clean and healthy and avoid breakouts and enlarged pores. Oily skins respond well to foaming cleansers and gels, which can effectively remove dirt, excess oil, buildup and impurities.

However, even a dry skin types can become more sensitive if not carefully cared for with extra hydration. It needs regular hydration products to support the skin structure. The skin’s protective moisture barrier needs ceramides and Lipids for moisture retention.
