The skincare routine for your skin type:
Uneven skin is skin that has darker areas due to an excess of melanin. These spots are usually caused by hyperpigmentation, excessive sun exposure, acne scarring or hormonal imbalance. Regenerating skin cells is essential for this skin type.
Your ideal routine: Opt for a gently exfoliating cleanser to remove dead cells, then remove impurities and with toner to leave skin ultra-clean and smooth. In the morning, opt for a lightweight moisturizer with built-in sun protection to prevent further UV damage, and in the evening reach for a moisturizer with LHAs for overnight exfoliation.
Redness, itchiness, irritation and patchy spots are signs of sensitive skin. This can be a reaction to using products that are too harsh for your skin type or even the weather! For this type, you want to protect the skin.
Your ideal routine: An ultra-soothing micellar water is great for removing makeup and impurities without stripping your skin. Next, make sure the skin is totally clean by running a cottom pad soaked in a gentle toner. Finish with an Omega 3 and 6-enriched moisturizer for soothing hydration.
If your T-zone tends to be shiny and prone to blackheads, breakouts, and open pores, while the rest of your skin is normal or dry, then you have combination skin. This means you need to focus on both purification and hydration.
Your ideal routine: Cleanse and refresh your skin by washing it with a gel cleanser, then apply an ultra-fresh toner to remove impurities and tighten pores. Complete your routine by massaging a moisturizer enriched with apricot oil and shea butter into your skin for a healthy glow.
Hello happy, healthy skin!
