Despite our best efforts, whether it be regular facials, drinking more water, using masques, or exfoliating, it can be a real challenge to maintain soft and clear skin. However, finding the perfect moisturiser for your skin type works like magic. Read more to find out about the different skin types, why it is so important to moisturise and what moisturiser you should use.
Why Is It Important To Moisturise Your Face?
Moisturising in the morning often feels like a chore even though it has more or less become second nature to us. However, why is it so important to apply a moisturiser? Well, there are quite a few reasons as to why you should not skip out on this step.
When you find the perfect moisturiser for your skin type, it can help reduce the risk of getting skin problems in the future, reduce the chances of getting blemishes and dark spots, and help offset premature ageing by keeping your skin hydrated. At Spa Ceylon, we believe that it is important to use all-natural moisturisers to get the best results out of your skin regiment which is why all of our products are made from Ayurvedic wonder herbs.
What Are The Different Skin Types?
Like everything in life, everyone is different, and this includes their skin type! Here are the different skin types to help you get a better understanding of what yours is.
Normal Skin – Normal skin is easy to maintain, it has very few problems and it is less likely to age prematurely. All you need to do is wash it with a facial cleanser like Spa Ceylon’s White Rose Facial Cleansing Cream, put on a moisturiser and you’re ready to go!
Oily/Acne-Prone Skin – If you have oily or acne-prone skin it merely means that you have a build-up of sebum which is an oily or waxy substance that protects and hydrates the skin. However, an excess of sebum can lead to clogged pores and a greater risk of getting pimples and blackheads. To take care of oily skin, you will need to use an oil-free face wash and a very light facial moisturiser.
Dry Skin – Dry skin is when your skin produces less oil making the skin lack vitality. If you have dry skin, you are also more prone to experience changes with your skin when the weather changes which can lead to lines around your eyes and mouth. To tackle dry skin, it is very important to have thick deeply nourishing cream.
Combination Skin – Combination skin, albeit tricky to treat, is very common. If you have combination skin this means your skin is dry overall but oily on the T zone. It is vital you stay protected against sun damage as oily skin is more sensitive to the effects of the sun.
Mature Skin – Finally, mature skin is rather sensitive because as you age the skin’s flexibility and elasticity reduce, making it more fragile, more uneven, finer and wrinkles can even appear. Also, as the skin ages, it loses its natural moisture and tends to be drier. For this skin type, you must use a hydrating and strengthening moisturiser which will renew, revive and thicken the protective barrier in your dermis.
What Moisturiser Should You Use?
