What Is Your Skin Type?

People who have a great shiny skin, know a lot about what their skin type is, what products suit their skin and how exactly their skin will react towards different situations. In order to have a perfectly healthy skin, you'll need to know what exactly makes your skin dull and unhealthy. 

Making it simple, our skin falls into four major categories. Human face and body follow different types of skin, so if a person has oily face will not determine the type of skin their body has. To know more about your skin, you need to take a look in the mirror and review the characteristics of precisely what type of skin do you have. 

Normal Skin

A normal skin is not dry, and neither oily; instead, it feels smooth. It can be identified by specific things, which include:

  • No Major sensitivity
  • Minimal Pores That Are Hardly Seen
  • Shiny And Bright Complexion

Normal skin is usually considered as the least problematic one and does not require much attention and extra care as compared to other skin types. 

Oily Skin

People who have extremely visible and large pores usually have an oily skin type which also makes their complexion really shiny and greasy. A person having oily skin is more prone to blackheads, pimples, and other blemishes. Oily skin and its issues are mostly triggered by stress, overexposure to heat and humidity, moreover, from hormonal imbalance as well.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is identified by the rough white patches and flakes of dead skin on ones face. Although the pores on dry skin type are not visible, the red patches, visible lines, and a dull complexion become the most evident symptom of dry skin. It might be caused by a number of reasons which includes genetics, hormones, overheating, or medications.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is the most common type of skin as most people around the world fall into this category. People having this skin type sometimes suffer from extremely dry skin, whereas the rest of the times, their skin remains dry. This is totally situational. The combination skin is usually oily at the T-Zone, and the face is normal to dry elsewhere.

What Should I Do Then?

1. Protect Your Skin From The Sun

The topmost suggested way to have a clear, healthy and glowing skin is to keep it protected from the excessive sun exposure. According to the dermatologists, excessive sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and premature ageing. Moreover, it can also increase the chances of skin cancer.  

You can protect your skin from the sun by: 

Using Sunscreen 

As per a skin specialist's recommendation, use a sunblock which contains SPF of at least 15. Apply it generously and adequately. You'll be needing to refresh it every two hours.

Opt For Shades 

If you're planning to go out, avoid the peak sun times between 10AM to 4PM. This is the time when the sun's rays have the most substantial effect on our skin.

Wearing Clothes That'll Protect You

While going out at peak sun hours, try to cover your skin with clothes that have long sleeves and full pants. Furthermore, wear brimmed hats as it is the ideal way to protect your face.

2. Be Gentle To Your Skin

Avoid frequent scrubbing, cleansing and shaving of your skin!! It can harm your skin, and you might end up having a patchy, irritated skin. 

Try to keep it gentle and easy, here's how:

Try To Have Shorter Baths

Long baths in warm or hot water remove all those essential oils from your skin and will leave your skin dry and irritated. Try to limit your bath times and try using lukewarm water.

Avoid strong soaps

Use soaps that are mild and have ingredients that suit all skin types. Soaps that keep your skin neutralised. 

Shave Very Carefully

If you shave frequently, try applying a cream, conditioner or a shaving gel to your skin before shaving as it will keep your skin from scraping off. Also, shave in the direction of your hair, not in the opposite direction.

Pat Dry Your Skin

Whenever you wash your skin, pat dry and not rub as it can take all the moisture away.

Moisturise That Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, use a moisturising lotion that matches your skin type.

3. Healthy Diet Is The Key

Along with all those efforts you do to fix your skin from the outer side, a healthy diet is equally beneficial. Add a balanced amount of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins in your diet. Moreover, do not forget to drink plenty of water as it helps to keep your skin hydrated.

4. Do Not Stress Much

Go easy on yourself, that uncontrolled stress can end up making your skin too sensitive and also, it'll make it easier for the acne to appear quickly. If you're opting for a healthy and glowing skin, it is vital to have a healthy state of mind. Get sleep, manage stress, write down a to-do list and enjoy your stress-free mood. The results will be a lot positive than you would've imagined. 

5. Use Coconut Milk As A Stress Reliever

Coconut milk is considered as the best stress reliever for our skin. It is a very cool remedy to ease your sunburnt and stressed skin. Use fresh coconut milk and add some essential oils which will rejuvenate, nourish and rehydrate dry skin.

6. Don't Lose Weight All At Once

When you tend to lose weight too quickly, your skin loses elasticity which makes the skin sag. Also, you might not look as young since you'll lose the weight in your face first.

7. Too Many Ingredients Can Upset Your Skin

Deciding to try out new products? Well. Take it one by one. Try experimenting one product at a time and let your skin understand that routine for a few days.

8. Clean Your Makeup Brushes Frequently

Makeup brushes can be the biggest culprit of breakouts on your skin. It can increase infection, clog pores and can also irritate your skin. To stop that from happening, you need to wash your brushes at least once a week.

Put a drop of your face wash, shampoo in a bowl filled with lukewarm water and dip your brushes in it. Massage the bristles in your hand, so the brushes are free from the residue and then squeeze out all the water from your brushes on a towel. Try practising it every week and experience a better skin. 

Skin, especially our facial skin, becomes the most prominent part of our personality, be it acne filled or clean. Hence, it is vital to have a clean and healthy skin because it reflects how well you take care of it. Following these simple steps and making them a part of your regular routine can lead you towards your dream, a celebrity-like glowing skin.
