Love The Skin You're In

Updated: Oct 31, 2019


Now that the sun is shining and the temperatures have (finally!) risen and before we get caught up in the whirlwind of holiday activities, it’s time to take stock and consider our skin strategy for getting through the Summer undamaged!  The focus of the blog over the next few months will be on feeding and protecting your skin to avoid sun damage and maintain that healthy glow that we all love.  Of course, it’s difficult to do this effectively if you don’t know what your skin type is - it’s amazing how many people use the wrong products for their skin everyday because they don’t understand their skin type.


It goes without saying that products will only yield results if they are right for your skin’s unique needs.   So, with the aid of Skinceuticals, this week’s post is a guide to determining your skin type and how to feed it to get the best glow ever!


Dry Skin:

Skin feels and appears smooth, fine grained, often flaked, wrinkled or parched. It can feel tight after washing and tends to roughen in harsh weather. It may be sensitive to reaction and can itch and crack easily. Wrinkles tend to form easily. You have little to no open pores, little elasticity and small wrinkles appear with facial expressions.

Combination Skin:

Skin has good elasticity depending on the area of the face. Facial lines may develop around the eye and lip area. Breakouts may occur particularly around t-zone.

Dehydrated Skin:

Skin looks very dry but may also be oily. When you look at the skin or slightly stretch it, fine ‘tissue paper’ lines run from pore to pore. May see visible flaking. Degree of oiliness varies. Large pores may exist. Fine, superficial lines or wrinkles form prematurely in entire face. No breakouts occur.
