SKIN TYPES/ SKIN CONCERNS & CONDITIONS

SKIN TYPES

It’s important to identify your personal skin type before choosing your products. Use the following descriptions to ensure a perfect match and to properly care for your skin.

DRY SKIN

Your skin feels dry and tight, and sometimes you can see flakes on your cheeks, chin and forehead. Fine lines may be present around your eye and lip contour areas. It is important to use moisture-rich products such as a daytime moisturizer, and a moisturizing treatment at night to repair your skin while you sleep. Weekly moisturizing masques will keep your skin soft and supple and will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

NORMAL OR COMBINATION SKIN

Your skin has an even tone, and is not overly dry or oily. From time to time you may experience oiliness on your chin, nose and forehead or dryness on your cheeks, lips and around your eye contour area. To keep the condition of your skin even and toned, a good skin care routine including cleansing and moisturizing is a must.

OILY SKIN

Your skin is shiny, has visible pores and is prone to spots and blemishes. Makeup seems to slide off your skin as soon as it is applied. Oily skin has the benefit of not showing lines easily, but needs to be maintained to help prevent breakouts and to control shine.

SENSITIVE SKIN

Your skin has fine pores, can be easily irritated and is prone to redness. Sensitive skin is often genetic and can also react to poor diet, changes in weather, hormonal imbalance and certain cosmetic products. Sensitive skin must be treated with the correct skin care products that are gentle and soothing to heal your skin and relieve your symptoms.

SKIN CONCERNS & CONDITIONS

Skin concerns and conditions can be uncomfortable, but the right treatment with active herbal ingredients can produce amazing results.

ACNE / BREAKOUT PRONE

Acne can affect skin at any age from adolescent to adult. Acne is usually characterized by oily to normal skin that persistently breaks out, is clogged, reactive and is sometimes inflamed. Acne is caused by a number of factors such as dirt and pollution on the skin’s surface, stress, an unbalanced diet, hormonal fluctuations and the overproduction of sebum, which is a naturally produced oil. The good news is that acne can be alleviated over time by controlling stress, getting regular exercise to remove toxins from the body, following a healthy diet, and using natural organic skin care to keep skin clear and healthy.

ROSACEA / REDNESS

Sometimes confused with acne, rosacea often shows on the skin as an inflammation and reddening on the nose, forehead, cheekbone or chin. Inflamed capillaries on the skin’s surface give the complexion a red, blotchy or bumpy appearance. Rosacea is usually a genetic condition, but certain factors are known to aggravate it. Avoiding hot liquids, alcohol, the sun and extreme temperatures plus using products designed to help calm skin will help to clear irritations and control redness.

SIGNS OF AGING

The telltale signs of aging include wrinkles and sagging skin. Two of the biggest skin woes, these conditions are a direct result of the body’s aging process. Natural collagen production slows with age and the skin appears less plump. While aging happens to everyone, there are ways to minimize the appearance and development of fine lines and wrinkles. The best long-term prevention for all skin types is a healthy lifestyle, daily sun protection, and a targeted skin care regimen.

HYPERPIGMENTATION / UNEVEN SKIN TONE

Defined by the appearance of dark spots, freckles, scarring or an uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation can affect any skin type and has a large spectrum of severity. Identified by an increase in melanin production in the skin, it is a universal skin condition. Environmental factors, stress, aging and post-inflammatory pigmentation are all factors in skin tone changes and coloration. Protect from future damage with SPF and seek products and treatments specifically designed to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

LARGE PORES

Regardless of age or gender, the appearance of large pores is a common skin concern. Pores are used by the body to distribute skin-softening sebum (commonly referred to as “oil”). While everyone has visible pores, some naturally produce more oil, resulting in larger pores. Sebum also oxidizes when it reaches the skin’s surface, causing pores to become visible and appear larger. Pore size may increase with age as the skin loses elasticity. With regular cleansing and gentle exfoliation, sebum is removed from the skin’s surface, resulting in less visible pores. Wearing a non-comedogenic mineral makeup will also help the complexion will appear flawless.

EYE AREA

The skin surrounding the eyes is seven times thinner than the skin around the rest of the face. This naturally delicate skin is very susceptible to the effects of sun exposure, aging, lack of nutrition and dehydration. The skin around the eyes reflects the slightest imbalance in skin health and is also prone to wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. As the eyes are one of the most expressive features, daily hydration, weekly eye masques and even light exfoliation with specific, targeted products will ensure this unique zone of the face remains firm and toned.
