One of the reasons many products don’t seem to work is that we don’t know what skin type we have. To pick the best-fitting skincare routine, we should know what our skin type is and what it needs. It is also good to know that our skin changes seasonally and might need a different routine for each season. You’ll find that your skin might be breaking out or being quick to irritate because you haven’t found the best suitable products for your skin even though you are using lots of products already. What you might be missing may lie in knowing your skin type and what could work best for you. Here is a guide that will help you determine your skin type and explain how you could take better care of your skin.
Normal skin is normal because it is well-balanced and self-sustaining and doesn’t have any other prominent trait. You can know you have normal skin when your skin is not dry, oily, combination, or sensitive. Normal skin means that your skin doesn’t change a lot because of outside conditions because it balances itself naturally. You won’t have a lot of issues with this skin type, but skincare is still important. Normal skin can use extra protection and cleansing to help illuminate the skin and keep the balance shining through. We suggest trying our all-rounded Argan oil-infused Coffee Scrub for exfoliation and added hydration.
Dry skin is very common and not always easily detectable. The common signs you have dry skin is that it looks dry, easily cracks, and isn’t smooth to the touch. However, there are times you might not have any revealing signs unless you use a hydrating moisturizer and realize that your skin has been craving the moisture and absorbs the hydration tirelessly. This means either that you haven’t been using any moisturizers on your skin or that you’re using the wrong type of moisturizer. Try using a deeply hydrating moisturizer or cold cream or use Beauty Legacy’s deeply nourishing and all organic Moroccan Cold-Pressed Argan Oil.
Dry skin is very common, but oily skin is quite obvious to notice. Oily skin is feisty and easily causes lots of trouble from being acne-prone, constant breakouts, irritation, excessive and noticeable oil patches around the T-zone areas, and even on other areas like the chin, nose, and forehead. Oily skin is calling for action and attention because it needs proper care. If you are using skincare already, your diet, stress, or negative habits might be the reason your skin is unbalanced. Oily skin means not only that there’s excessive production of oil, it means that your face is producing a lot of oil because it needs more protection. For example, if you don’t use any nourishing skin care after cleansing, don’t exfoliate as needed, or are eating the wrong diet that expels the unneeded elements of your skin. Beauty Legacy recommends using the fresh and light Orange Blossom essence and Argan Oil blend to balance out your oily skin.
Combination Skin Type
Combination skin is common as well and can be tricky to determine. One of the most common characteristics of combination skin is dry or oily patches of skin on some parts of your face. How can your face be both dry and oily? Well, our faces also have an atmosphere of their own and can be mixed at the same time. It might mean that oily facial parts are oilier than normal and drier patches are drier than normal too. Overall, unbalanced skin shows both symptoms of oily and dry skin. Your skin might need skincare that targets your skin's combination needs. Our Hempseed Argan Oil is our bestselling all-rounder face oil because it caters to combination skin needs while also being light and deeply moisturizing.
Sensitive Skin Type
Sensitive skin can be all the above, but its most defining feature is its irritability. If you have dry sensitive skin, then your skin will display symptoms of redness, flakiness, easily aggravated by different weather. If you have oily sensitive skin, your skin will be more prone to excessive breakouts, blackheads and clogged pores, and uneven complexions. Sensitive skin requires custom skincare best prescribed by a dermatologist. However, you can supplement your skin with our lightest Ylang-Ylang infused Argan Oil formula that soothes and cleanses the skin and works fantastically with sensitive skins.
