The most common skin types are dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin or combination skin. All of these are perfectly normal but can have an impact on our complexion.

Dry Skin:

Dry skin is often characterised as feeling a bit tight or uncomfortable if moisturiser isn’t applied. If there isn’t enough moisture in the skin either from water or oil, it can also make fine lines appear more visible. Sometimes you can experience dry skin naturally and other times it can be because of external factors such as a change in climate which wicks away moisture. A classic example of this is in Winter when we are often cold outside with lots of indoor heating inside.

Oily Skin:

Oily skin can be characterised by more shine caused by excess oil, especially on the T-zone area. Oily skin is great for helping skin look youthful as the appearance of fine lines can be less pronounced but it can also become easily congested with excess oil combined with dead skin cells or external aggressors such as dirt & pollution can block pores which may lead to spots & blemishes.

Sensitive Skin:

Sensitive skin is often characterised by skin that reacts easily to leave uncomfortable, irritated skin. It can also be highly pigmented & appear flushed.

If this sounds like you, then you need something that will calm & soothe skin. We would recommend out Calming Clay Mask.

Combination Skin:

It’s not unusual for people to experience a little bit of each of these skin types and this is what we call combination skin. For example you may find you have sensitive cheeks, an oily t-zone or congested skin around your chin. Others may experience dryness but still have breakouts now and then.
