What is a skin type?

If a mix of oily and dryness, especially in your t-zone - combination skin
If hydrated and comfortable - normal skin
The blotting sheet method involves pressing a clean blotting sheet to the skin. Be sure to cleanse first with a mild, gentle cleanser, pat dry and allow to rest for 30 minutes. Hold the sheet up to the light to observe the oil markings.
If an abundance of oil - oily skin
If little to no oil -dry skin
If small amounts of oil from your t-zone - combination skin
If minimal oil - normal skin
Skin Concerns |
Less sebum, an oily substance produced by the body to retain moisture to the skin, leads to dry skin. Dry skin lacks the necessary lipids (fats) needed to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences. Leading to a compromised barrier function.
Melanin rich skin tones tends to be more susceptible to dry skin as it lacks ceramides, fatty molecules that make up the outer barrier of your skin, preventing water loss.
SOOTHE is recommended to moisten skin with gentle, soothing ingredients that hydrate and provide relief to dry skin.
