So let's go, a little history on the different skin types and the solutions we offer!
Skin types and skin conditions ...
There are four types of skin : normal, dry, oily, and combination.
Dry skin is lacking in lipids, that is to say in lack of fat . In this case, the protective film of the skin, also called the "hydrolipidic film", does not produce enough sebum . You can recognize dry skin by the feeling of tightness and roughness to the touch. To counter this problem, the skin must be nourished, for example, with a butter or a oil.
Oily skin is skin whose sebaceous glands produce too much of a fatty substance called "sebum". People with oily skin often complain of shiny, shiny, oily-looking skin. To best treat this problem, it is advisable to use mattifying or absorbent products.
Regarding combination skin, it shows an imbalance and is characterized by an oily T zone (made up of the chin, nose and forehead) and a rather dry peripheral zone (made up of the cheeks and temples). For this type of skin, the use of products adapted to each area is recommended. For example, you can apply the green clay mask on the T zone and the one at thepink clay on the rest of the face.
Normal skin is, after all, skin that has none of these problems and therefore has a perfect balance . However, you can imagine this type of skin is very rare ...
Each skin type is associated with one or more skin conditions . The latter depends on criteria which can be internal (such as stress, diet, etc.), but also external (such as pollution, weather, etc.)
Among these skin conditions, we find in particular mature or senescent, sensitive, dehydrated, dull, acne-prone skin, etc. Mature skin is skin with visible wrinkles. In this case, a moisturizing and / or anti-aging active ingredient is recommended.
Sensitive skin is very reactive and is often accompanied by tightness, inflammation and redness . Thus, it is necessary to administer soothing and gentle products to them.
Dehydrated skin, as the name suggests, needs hydration and lacks water considerably. They are characterized by small fine lines and streaks of dehydration as well as scales (dead skin). In most cases, the skin is dull.
Dull skin lacks radiance. For this, you can perform peels or exfoliation allowing cell renewal. the apricot kernel powder scrub of BeautyMix is perfect for this kind of problem.
