How to Find Out and Treat Your Skin Type

Skincare routines are often tailored to the type of skin you have – but what if you don’t know yours? Knowing your skin type is important if you want to maximise your skincare routine.

Normal Skin Type

‘Normal skin’ refers to well-balanced skin with few problems. It is not too oily or too dry. You have small pores and few breakouts. 

Best Treatment for Normal Skin

Microdermabrasion is the best treatment for a skin-busting beauty boost. This facial removes any dead skin cells lurking on the skin’s surface to reveal the fresh new skin underneath. 

Oily Skin 

This refers to shiny skin with an excess of oil on the surface. Oily skin types usually have enlarged pores frequent breakouts. They often suffer from blackheads and pimples.

Best Treatment for Oily Skin

Microdermabrasion can help oily skin. By gently exfoliating the surface of the skin, pores are unclogged and excess oil and sebum removed. A course of Microdermabrasion is the ultimate weapon for people with oily skin. It removes the top layer and leaves skin looking smoother and fresher.

Dry Skin Type

These skin types are characterised by persistent dryness. This is due to lack of sebum and can result in dull tired-looking skin. A rough complexion with redness and premature ageing is common. Fine lines and wrinkles are visible.

Best Treatment for Dry Skin

SkinBase’s Collagen Lift is the answer for dry skin. Collagen Lift stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin’s elastin fibres. The overall effect is plump and smooth skin texture and minimised fine lines. Collagen Lift results are even more effective when paired with a good skincare routine and healthy lifestyle.

Best Treatment for Combination Skin

With these guidelines in mind, examine your skin and decide where you fit in. Adapt your routine to maximise your skin’s needs. Remember skin types can change with age so make sure you always pay attention to any changes you notice.
