A Lot of clients and people in general get confused about what their skin type actually is or some people have no idea what type of skin they have. It is hard to know what skin you have because so many concerns point to similar skin types for example: someone may think they have combination skin (dry around the cheeks - have an oily T-Zone) however you could actually have dehydrated skin, the reason for the oiliness is where your skin is so dehydrated your skin produces its own moisture (sebum) to hydrate the skin.
Normal Skin: Nothing out of the ordinary, your skin isn't too oily or too dry and there are no obvious signs of blemishes or flaky sensitive patches. Normal skin which is often common in young people is balanced and has a healthy looking, radiant complexion.
Dry Skin: Dry skin is a very common skin type to have and one of the reasons for dry skin is your not retaining enough water, however this can also result because of age and weather, health issues and sometimes diet. The skin also lacks oil but can also over produce oil as your skin isn’t getting the moisture it needs. Your skin may feel rough, itchy and tight, you may notice that fine lines and wrinkles are more visible however your pores are less visible.
Oily Skin: Our skin's oil is called sebum and when there's too much sebum being produced it can lead to clogged pores, excess shine, blackheads and spots. You may also notice the sebum in your skin will change because of hormones, stress and humidity.
Combination Skin: If you are prone to dry patches and breakouts and have an oily T-Zone (forehead, nose and chin) you may have combination skin. Your pores tend to be larger around the nose area but smaller in other areas.
Sensitive skin: If you have sensitive skin, your skin is more vulnerable to irritants such as the sun and pollution, this can lead to itchy skin, flaking, redness and skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. Sensitive skin occurs when the skin's barrier function is weakened.
Blemish prone skin: Blemish prone skin is usually oily and is more susceptible to pimples, blackheads and acne breakouts, the body naturally produces sebum to protect the skin and to keep it moisturised, an excess of sebum can cause clogged pores, inflammation and blemishes.
Here at 27 TWO 6 Beauty we use a skincare brand called IMAGE, which is a cosmeceutical brand and are very powerful products and are amazing for targeting all skin concerns. The difference between IMAGE and drug store products is IMAGE has delivery systems in their products which means the ingredients are carried all the way through the 5 layers of the skin, whereas drug store products mostly work on the surface.
There are several collections to IMAGE, you also don't have to stick to one range you can mix and match: for example; someone with concerns of aging but also have dehydrated skin, they could use either the MAX range or AGELESS to target fine lines and wrinkles but could also use the VITAL C range for hydration and of course you can't forget your daily SPF moisturiser Prevention +.
A lot of people do get their skin types wrong. Someone may think they have dry skin but in reality their skin is only dry because they never exfoliate, so all of the dead skin cells on the face build up making it seem as though you have dry skin.
Someone may think they have blemish prone skin but again it could be due to their diet, medication or the products they are using are not agreeing with their skin.
Homecare is very important but it is also important that you come to the salon and have regular facials, we use products that will benefit your skin and get your skin to where it needs to be or where you would like it to be. Facials are a skin maintenance and should be done every 2-3 weeks or for some people every 4-6 weeks.
We have given some examples on a Simple skincare routines for your skin type. All of these products are found here at 27 Two 6 beauty & on our online store. We also offer a skin analysis in salon
