There are broadly 5 different skin types - normal, oily, dry, combination and sensitive. Each skin type has a unique characteristic, and each demands a different skincare regimen to be in tip-top shape.
1. Normal Skin
Normal skin is the perfect skin type. This skin type is not too oily or dry and has a naturally balanced texture. People with this skin type have the option of experimenting with a wide variety of products without worrying about negative skin reactions.
2. Oily Skin
Oily skin occurs when the production of sebum is excessive, and the skin gets a very glossy sheen. People with this skin type have to be very careful while choosing their cosmetics. If the cosmetics they use have an oil base, it could lead to a number of acne breakouts.
Dry skin occurs when the production of sebum is very low. This skin type is identified through a rough, flaky and dull appearance. People with this skin type need to include heavier moisturizing products in their daily skin care regime.
Combinations skin, as the name suggests, occurs when the skin has both- oily and dry patches. This skin type experiences different textured patches along the T-zone and cheeks.
Lastly, there is the sensitive skin type. This skin type usually reacts negatively to the most basic products. Various factors like the chemicals used in cosmetics and even something as simple as varying temperatures can result in the irritation of the skin.
In order to identify your skin type, we suggest using the bare face method. The bare face method is a fairly simple procedure:
If you are blessed with normal skin then you have very little to worry about. Normal skin is a naturally balanced skin type and requires very little effort to maintain and is hence, very easy to deal with.
If you have normal skin, you need not worry about breakouts, irritation and rashes that can be caused by certain chemicals that are present in cosmetics. This is because most cosmetic products are created keeping in mind the normal skin type.
As mentioned before, since the chance of experiencing an acne breakout is very low, you are free to explore a wide variety of cosmetics, makeup and other skincare ranges without any apprehension.
When it comes to normal skin, you don’t have to worry about premature ageing signs like dullness, wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots for a long time.
Although having a normal skin type requires very little effort, it is important that you still have a good skin care regime in order to maintain your skin.
In order to keep your skin healthy, there are a few easy things you can include in your daily skincare routine.
Cleansing your skin is the first of the famous CTM routine, where keeping your skin clear of any makeup, dirt and grime is essential. We suggest using the Kaya Everyday Skin Booster Skin Awakening Rinse.
Simply cleansing your face is not enough to completely free it of dirt. It is important that you also use a toner to get rid of the excess grime that may be stuck to your face. For this, you would need a mattifying and nourishing toner like the Kaya Everyday Essentials Daily Pore Minimizing Toner.
Any skin, irrespective of the type, needs to be moisturized daily and, for that, you need a nourishing and lightweight cream. We suggest the Kaya Everyday Essentials Anytime Moisturizing Cream.
All skin types have one thing in common and that is the presence of dead skin cells which accumulate on the top layer of skin. Getting rid of the dead skin cells is very important to expose the healthy and regenerated skin cells underneath. For this, it is advised to exfoliate your skin with a mild scrub twice a week. We suggest the Kaya White Resilience Creamy Exfoliating Rinse.
All skin types are affected by the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. We suggest the Kaya Sun Defence Youth Protect Sunscreen SPF 50.
