Ever wonder why the same product that delivers miracle results for some people just doesn’t work for others? In order to create an effective skincare regimen, the first step is to understand skin type. Whether a person’s skin type is dry, oily, acne-prone, combination or sensitive, the key is using the right products and ingredients. Read on for helpful FAQs on how to determine skin type and what to look for in a skincare routine.
» Q: When choosing skincare products, what should people consider?
A: Although a mild cleanser and moisturizer are ideal for everyone, it’s important to consider an individual’s skin type. Creams are typically too heavy for oily skin types, whereas they’re perfect for a dry complexion. Also, keep in mind that skin type can change according to age, diet and season. So when shopping for skincare products, look for formulas specifically made for individual skin types. People can also see a dermatologist to get recommendations based on their skin’s needs.
» Q: What should people avoid if they have combination skin?
A: People should avoid using products that can be too harsh on skin, such as those that contain alcohol or high levels of active ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or glycolic acid, all of which can strip the skin. Also, don't use rich creamy products on oily areas, since this can make skin greasy and clog pores.
Skincare isn’t a static routine—when the weather changes, skin often changes as well. Fluctuating temperatures and humidity means that our skin responds by changing its chemistry, which requires that people make adaptations to their skincare regimen. Dry skin may become oily in the summer, and cooler temps can bring on dry, flaky skin. Learn how to adjust your skincare routine to fit seasonal changes with these FAQs.
» Q: What kinds of ingredients should people look for in a moisturizer during the dry winter months?
A: Look for shea butter, ceramides, stearic acid, collagen, dimethicone, cyclomethicone or glycerin. Also, don’t forget to exfoliate the body with a gentle scrub to remove dead skin cells, allowing products to sink into the skin.
» Q: Is it necessary to wear sunscreen all year round?
A: It’s crucial to wear sunscreen all year round. In fact, people can get just as bad of a sunburn in the winter as they can in the summer. This is especially true for people who live in a snowy area or participate in snow sports — the snow reflects the sun, like water does, giving people a painful sunburn. And remember that a tan also signals sun damage.
