Determine your skin type
Several criteria must be taken into account when choosing your day cream. Starting with your skin type. But before knowing which treatments to choose, you still have to recognize if you have normal, combination, oily or dry skin. Normal skin does not tighten, itch, or itch. In short, it is “comfortable” skin all day long. A simple moisturizing day cream is enough to nourish it. Mixed skin, for its part, oscillates between normal skin and skin prone to acne. It can present imperfections according to the season, a change of mode or rhythm of life. It can be normal in some places and oily in others, especially in the T zone, understand forehead, nose, chin. This type of skin requires special attention, since it may be necessary to change the day cream depending on its evolution. Anti-blemish care is recommended for this type of skin provided that it is not too reactive.
As for oily skin, it is certainly the one that is most easily recognized because it “shines” due to an excess of sebum. It may also be full of black dots. Contrary to popular belief, it is important to nourish your skin even if it is shiny. Opt for a moisturizing day cream designed for oily or acne prone skin.
Dry, itchy, itchy skin. It can peel or be irritated in some places. Be careful under these conditions, not to strip it because it risks even more to irritate it. Bet on nourishing and lipid-replenishing care.
