Combination

oily skin

Following your answers, your skin is oily or combination.

In your 20s, factors such as hormonal imbalance, stress, and an unhealthy diet contribute to oily/combination skin.

In your 30s or 40s, combination to oily skin can occur due to hormonal imbalances, improper skincare and it is also affected by the hectic lifestyle and bad habits of modern life.

Combination to oily skin can be the result of many factors: skin dehydration, hormonal changes, sun exposure, air-conditioned interiors. Some visible signs also characterise it: larger pores in the T-zone (nose, forehead and chin), the skin is smooth but feels oily. Combination to oily skin overproduces lipids in the T-zone and underproduces in the other zones.

Such a skin type requires gentle cleansing without compromising the skin's protective barrier. Refrain from using harsh cleansers and cleansers containing sulphates, which extract oil from the skin and stimulate the skin to produce more oil.

In your skincare routine, look for natural moisturisers, natural oils rich in linoleic acid, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that soothe the skin. Antioxidants protect the skin from harmful free radicals, promote cell repair, stimulate collagen production and prevent wrinkles.

dehydrated skin

According to your answers, your skin is dry to dehydrated. Dry and dehydrated skin often go hand in hand and can be caused by season (winter) or dehydrating environmental factors, ageing or genetics.

Dehydrated skin is often a result of our lifestyle habits. Skin is more susceptible to dehydration and dryness when spending a lot of time outdoors or in air-conditioned spaces like offices.

There are some visual signs: rough texture, flakiness, visible lines, red patches. Dry skin may have lost the ability to regulate moisture in the upper layers of the skin because it lacks skin-loving lipids, so it usually occurs with dehydration.

Such type of skin is cured with proper lifestyle choices and ingredients that repair the skin barrier.

In your skin care regimen, look for natural humectants that draw moisture to your skin and natural oils and butters with essential fatty acids that protect the skin from moisture loss, enhanced with natural antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the skin from harmful free radicals while stimulating cell repair, collagen production and preventing wrinkles.

Following your answers, you have dehydrated skin. Unlike dry skin, which primarily lacks oils, dehydrated skin needs moisture to maintain its balance and beauty. Dehydrated skin is not considered a skin type but a skin condition.

Dehydrated skin can often be a result of our lifestyle habits. Your skin is more prone to dryness if you like to spend time outdoors or if you spend a lot of time in air-conditioned spaces like offices or airplanes.

It is characterised by visible signs of dehydration such as itching, dull-looking skin, uneven tone, more noticeable fine lines. It can be caused by many factors, most commonly by our modern lifestyle, such as sitting in air-conditioned offices for long periods or spending extended periods outdoors. That's why when we transition from summer to autumn or winter to spring, we tend to become dehydrated by spending time in the sun, i.e. in heated rooms.

Such a skin condition is relatively easy to treat with the right lifestyle changes and can reach its natural balance with proper care.

It is good to pay attention to natural humectants such as glycerin, natural betaine, hyaluronic acid, sodium lactate, and sodium PCA, which draw moisture into the skin and keep it there. Natural oils and butters protect the skin from moisture loss. And most importantly, look for a facial cleanser that doesn't strip the protective skin barrier.
