Different Skin Types

As many of you know, there are different skin types. Different skin types calls for different types of facial products. Undoubtedly, it is imperative to identify your skin type in order to moisturizer accordingly.

What Skin Types Do You Have?

Dry Skin:
Symptoms: Feeling of tightness and is often red, itchy and flaky.
Suitable Moisturizers: Look for cream moisturizers with a higher oil and wax content to help replenish the dehydration within your skin.
Oily Skin:
Symptoms: Shiny face soon after cleansing and has large pores.
Suitable Moisturizer: Look for oil-free lotion moisturizers that have a water-like texture to prevent excess sebum buildup and breakouts. Now if you are prone to breakouts. you would want to aim for non-comedogenic moisturizers to prevent clogging your pores.
Avoid Moisturizers: Stay away from moisturizers that contain glycerin, aloe and hyaluronic because they can actually trap oils in your pores.
Combination Skin:
Symptoms: Shiny face in the t-zone (forehead, nose and chin.) Whereas, drier face on the cheeks.
Suitable Moisturizer: You would like to look for gels or lotions. You can also use an oil-free moisturizer on your t-zone and a heavier moisturizer on your cheeks.
Normal Skin:
Symptoms: No part of the face is shiny or feels irrated.
Suitable Moisturzer: Luckily, you have a wider selection of moisturizers you can use since your face is not too dry or oily. However, you would still want to primarily use lightweight moisturizers to maintain your natural skin balance.

Glowing Skin Is Always In

I personally have a combination skin type and tend to use two different moisturizers for different areas of my face. In particular, I came across these two moisturizers, Retinol Moisturizer and Vitamin C Moisturizer by InstaNatural. I like to use the retinol moisturizer on my t-zone and the vitamin c moisturizer on my cheeks. In fact, I have found that both of these moisturizers hydrates my skin well and suits all areas of my face. I do feel that these moisturizers can be used on all skin types. Although, I do not recommend the retinol moisturizer for sensitive skin because the retinol may cause irritation. All in all, it is definitely worth taking the time to find the perfect match in order to prevent unwanted premature aging.

InstaNatural did provide me a sample of both of the moisturizers. Nonetheless, I only recommend items that I use personally and honestly like.
