Very Dry / Dehydrated Skin

If you find your skin is often chapped, scaly and uncomfortably tight, you may have very dry skin.

Most commonly caused by damage to the skin’s natural barrier, those with this skin type have difficulty regulating normal skin moisture levels.

The hydration levels in our skin are regulated by its outermost layer – also known as the stratum corneum – protects against dry skin and over-hydration. Luckily, this layer of skin is flexible, absorbent, adaptable and capable of regeneration. Those with very dry skin tend to be older or have a history of eczema.

Skin Tips

To help restore your skin barrier and natural glow, gently cleanse using mild cleansers and moisturize regularly. Cleansers should have a low pH that matches the acidic pH of skin. These cleansers have been found to optimize skin barrier function and help to trap moisture in the skin, while being gentle on skin.

Your environment may also play a factor, so try using a humidifier and avoiding long hot baths and showers. Dry and/or cold conditions can exacerbate very dry skin.

Signs
  • Dull complexion
  • Deeper wrinkles
  • Tight, irritated skin
  • Flakey patches and itchiness
  • Feels tight after washing
  • Small pores
  • Not acne and blackhead-prone

Usually, a daily skincare routine is focused on optimizing moisture balance, reducing blemishes, or evening skin tone and texture. If you're lucky enough to have normal - dry skin, a daily routine is about maintaining the natural balance that you have. And preventing future issues.

Skin Tips

Sunscreen is a must. While your skin may be balanced, it is not immune from the effects of sun damage. Many dermatologists recommend selecting sunscreens with an SPF of 30 or higher for daily use and 50 or so for a day at the beach. Always look for “broad spectrum” sunscreens. This term is intended to describe products that offer protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

As we age, our skin tends to become drier. Individuals with normal skin in their 20s and 30s generally have drier skin in their 40s as the skin’s natural defence mechanisms become less effective. Using a moisturizer daily is vital for keeping your skin properly hydrated.

Signs
  • Even complexion
  • Balanced moisture, if slightly dry
  • Few blemishes and breakouts
  • Smaller pores

Combination Skin

Combination skin can never make up its mind. Between an oily T-zone and dry cheeks, it seems like you have the worst of both.

Combination skin is marked by an oily T-zone (the “T” shaped area along your forehead, nose and chin) and dryness in other areas like your cheeks, temples and eye area.

While most people have combination skin to some degree since there are naturally more sebaceous glands around your nose than other areas, true combination skin is known for a consistently oily T-zone. Particularly active sebaceous glands overproduce sebum. This waxy substance helps keep skin moisturized, healthy and protected. Too much sebum can result in oily skin, acne and clogged pores. Meanwhile, if you have combination skin, the dry areas of your face require more natural moisture and may feel uncomfortably tight, flakey and irritated.

Skin Tips

When it comes to combo skin, it’s all about balance. The goal is to find skin care products that balance out oil secretions while making sure your face is still properly hydrated. Generally a cleanser on the astringent side (like a gel cleanser or similar) will keep oil managed, while a rich moisturizer maintains hydration levels. Exfoliating every couple of weeks helps create even, long-lasting glow by promoting cellular turnover. Pay attention to what your skin needs depending on your environment, as combination skin can be variable.

Signs
  • Uneven complexion
  • Shiny T-zone
  • Large pores in the T-zone
  • Acne/blackheads in T-zone
  • Dry cheeks, eye area and temples
  • Uncomfortably tight and irritated patches

Oil is essential for keeping skin soft, healthy and glowing, but too much is too much. Over production of sebum, an oily substance created by sebaceous glands in the skin, is responsible for overly oily skin. This can cause clogged pores and may lead to acne, blackheads and blemishes. It's not all bad news though as oily skin is less likely to produce deep wrinkles. While oily skin is often caused by genetics, there are a few things you can do to control it.

Skin Tips

Starting with the basics, choose an effective pH-balanced cleanser to unclog pores and remove excess oil. A mild AHA (alpha hydroxyl acid) or BHA (beta hydroxyl acid) wash or peel will help reduce some oil, along with any acne you might have.

While it might seem counterintuitive, it’s important to use a moisturizer to ensure your skin receives adequate hydration. Excessively using oil-control products can strip too much oil, resulting in your skin over-producing sebum again. Noncomedogenic moisturizers help combat dryness without causing clogged pores. Look for moisturizers with mattifying agents to control the appearance of oily skin.

Signs
  • Shiny, thick complexion
  • Acne and blemish-prone
  • Less likely to wrinkle
  • Enlarged pores
