Skin types

It is important to know the type of skin we have in order to choose the right creams for it.

The superficial layer of the skin (epidermis) is covered by a very thin invisible layer called the hydrolipid mantle. Its objective is to protect our face from external aggressions and control the loss of water. It is made up of sweat (water) and sebum and depending on the balance between both components, our skin type will result.

NORMAL SKIN

It occurs when sweat and sebum are in balance , you have a good level of hydration, your skin does not shine, is not tight and has no apparent pores no black dots.

DRY SKIN

In your skin there is little presence of lipids (sebum), little elasticity , a feeling of tightness and you have a dull complexion . The signs of aging in this type of skin are more accentuated, especially in the forehead area and in the eyes. If your skin is dry, you need good hydration and especially eye contour . The star ingredient is hyaluronic acid , as it will help you retain water and restore balance, which you can find in our eye contour.

OILY SKIN

Your skin produces excess sebum so you have shine all over your face , your pores are dilated and clogged and you have imperfections (pimples, blackheads or pimples). You need sebum-regulating products that help you fight fat and regain the balance of your skin.

MIXED SKIN

Your skin has a lot of shine in the T zone (forehead, nose and chin) with pores that are larger than on the rest of the face. The a cheek area is drier and more uniform. As with oily skin, you need sebum-regulating products.

MATURE SKIN

There is no specific age to have mature skin, but signs that your skin has new needs. Over the years the skin becomes drier and thinner , wrinkles are deeper and hyperpigmentation or spots and flaccidity appear due to the effect of free radicals. Aging is a natural process , but we can help prevent its effects with an anti-wrinkle moisturizer with powerful antioxidant actives that help restore the balance of your skin to fight against radicals free.

SENSITIVE SKIN OR ATOPIC

The difference between the terms sensitive, atopic or intolerant is in the degree of sensitivityquality.

sensitive, atopic or intolerant skin reacts more than normal skin to being low in lipids. Your skin is hyper-reactive if it experiences sensations of irritation, tingling, heat, tingling and redness , to stimuli that normal skin does not react to. This is due to alterations in the protective barrier due to an overproduction of free radicals that favor dehydration and the penetration of potentially irritating agents. It requires special and constant care to promote the creation of that protective barrier that your skin lacks.
