Habit Hack: Skincare Tips for Different Skin Types
Different skin types have different needs and require different approaches to achieve healthy and radiant skin.
Taking care of your skin requires understanding its unique needs. Remember to always be gentle with your skin, and develop a skincare routine that works best for you. With consistent care, you can achieve healthy and radiant skin.
For dry skin, focus on moisturising and hydrating with a gentle cleanser and moisturiser with hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides. Using a hydrating face mask once or twice a week can provide an extra boost of hydration.
Oily skin requires controlling excess oil and preventing breakouts. Using a foaming cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide and an oil-free moisturiser can help unclog pores and reduce production of sebum. Applying a clay mask once or twice a week can absorb excess oil and prevent breakouts.
Acne-prone skin requires keeping the skin clean and clear of bacteria. Using a gentle cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, a toner, and a light moisturiser can help unclog pores and kill bacteria. Use spot treatments and avoiding touching your face throughout the day to prevent spreading bacteria.
For sensitive skin, opt for fragrance-free and hypoallergenic products like gentle chemical exfoliants AHAs or BHAs instead of harsh exfoliants. Using lukewarm water when washing your face and avoiding rubbing your skin too hard can reduce irritation. Apply a gentle moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and protected.
