Your Skin Type

 

Mostly “A” Answers: Normal and Combination

Congratulations – you have well-balanced skin, not too dry or too oily. Most days you have a clear and smooth complexion. Normal skin typically does not breakout or flake. You may have areas on your skin that are a little dry and a little oily. For example, your skin may appear normal on the cheeks and slightly shiny on the forehead, nose and chin. This t-zone causes most of your oily skin. You don’t normally experience reactions to products. Normal skin is the easiest skin type to care for, but one of the first skin types to show signs of aging.

Now that you know your skin type, here are some skincare tips and recommended Ultra Essence natural skincare products perfect for your unique skin. Your skincare routine should be simple: Cleanse, moisturize, wear sunscreen and use anti-aging skincare products. Avoid skin care mistakes that move you from a normal skin type to a more problematic dry or oily skin type. These mistakes include using products with harsh chemicals and washing with abrasive scrubs, exfoliating pads and stiff-bristled brushes. These extreme measures lead to skin damage and will throw your normal skin type into a problematic state.

Mostly “B” Answers: Sensitive and Dry

Your skin always needs moisture. It experiences irritation from certain chemicals and lotions and is often affected by temperature changes. Dry skin looks dehydrated and is generally tight, rough or itchy. You may see flakiness or scaling. People with dry skin tend to also have thin skin in the epidermis (outer layer). Cellulite becomes more apparent as deeper fatty tissues push through the connective tissue beneath the skin. Don’t confuse dry skin with dehydrated skin. Dry skin is caused by a lack of oil production (or sebum) in the skin; however, dehydrated skin is only temporary and is caused by a lack of water due to environmental factors, climate or not drinking enough water. It can also be caused by heaters, hot baths/showers, and age. Sensitive skin usually looks red and dry, but it is different for each person. People with sensitive skin may also experience eczema, rosacea and sunburn or just feelings of discomfort.

Now that you know your skin type, here are some skincare tips and recommended Ultra Essence natural skincare products perfect for your unique skin. If you live in a dry climate or use a heater, consider getting a humidifier for your home or bedroom—moisture is key. Since your skin mainly repairs itself at night, focus on a skincare routine before bedtime. Use sunscreen during the day so you don’t reverse the impact of your overnight rejuvenation. Pay close attention to ingredients in makeup, soap, lotions and laundry detergent to avoid skin sensitivities and allergies. Especially avoid soaps with drying ingredients such as sulfates. Relief comes with using natural products such as Ultra Essence skincare products.

Mostly “C” Answers: Shiny and Oily

Your skin is shiny and you may experience a lot of excess oil on your face, shoulders, neck and back. Oily skin is caused by an over production of oil (sebum) by the skin’s sebaceous glands due to genetic factors. This occurs mainly in the t-zone of the face (forehead, nose, and chin), which causes grease and large clogged pores leading to acne or black/whiteheads. Oil production is at its peak at midday when you may feel like you want to wash your face. Oily skin may also be caused by humid climates, stress, cosmetics, hormones or over drying your skin. On a positive note, oily skin ages more slowly, helps to prevent wrinkles and can be easily managed.

WHAT WE RECOMMEND

Now that you know your skin type, here are some skincare tips and recommended Ultra Essence natural skincare products perfect for your unique skin. Stay away from products formulated to treat oily skin as they strip the skin of its natural oils (needed for moisture and protection). The skin actually starts to produce more oil when it senses that it is dry, which just makes the problem worse. Even if you are prone to acne, use a moisturizer that does not clog your pores and contains natural moisturizing ingredients that soak in and don’t stay on the surface of your skin. Use a cleanser that moisturizes and cleans at the same time. Especially avoid soaps with drying ingredients such as sulfates.
