Our skin is unique and individual. Each of us has a certain skin type, which is characterised by different properties and needs. In this article we give an overview of the different skin types and how you can recognise your own skin type.
Dry skin: moisturiser wanted!
Dry skin tends to be flaky and rough, often causing a feeling of tightness. It produces less natural oils and moisture, which weakens the skin barrier. People with dry skin often desire intensive moisturising and should look for products that contain rich ingredients such as natural oils.
Oily skin: fighting shine
Oily skin is characterised by an excessive production of sebum. The result is a shiny appearance and possibly enlarged pores. People with oily skin often feel the need for mattifying products and should look for non-comedogenic ingredients to avoid clogging of the pores.
Combination skin: A little of both
Combination skin is a combination of dry and oily areas of the skin. Often the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) is oilier, while the cheeks can be drier. Taking care of combination skin requires a balanced approach, applying moisture and mattifying products as needed.
Sensitive skin: gentle care is needed
Sensitive skin often reacts sensitively to external influences such as weather, irritating ingredients or strong cleansers. It can be prone to redness, irritation or itching. People with sensitive skin should look for mild and hypoallergenic products that soothe and protect the skin.
Normal skin: the lucky one
Normal skin is well balanced and shows few problems such as dryness, oiliness or skin irritation. It usually feels soft and supple. People with normal skin should still follow a regular skincare routine to maintain the health and glow of their skin.
Skin care options according to skin type
Regardless of skin type, thorough cleansing, moisturising and sun protection are important. However, choosing the right products and ingredients can vary depending on skin type. It is advisable to tailor your skincare routine to your individual needs and consult a dermatologist or skincare specialist if necessary. By the way, our Nirvana soaps are suitable for all skin types and we especially recommend them for dry skin, as they were specially developed by our founder Alex for his dry skin.
Conclusion: understand your skin type for personalised care
Knowing your skin type is crucial to finding the best skincare for your skin. By understanding your skin's needs and using targeted products, you can improve its health, radiance and well-being. A personalised skincare regimen based on your specific skin type can help your skin reach its best potential and make you feel good about yourself.
