Determining Your Skin Type and Deciding on Proper Skin Care
In order to provide the best possible care for your skin, we offer five different Mineral Creams which are formulated specifically for various skin types; i.e. the amount of naturally occurring oil, sensitivity and tendency for inflammation as well the presence of skin problems.
Have a close look at your skin in the mirror and choose which skin type most applies to you!
Dry skin or dehydrate skin does not maintain proper levels of oil and moisture and/or the amount of sebum produced is insufficient. This type of skin can become raw or flakey and may feel somehow too tight after washing. Such skin has pores which are fine in appearance, is especially sensitive to temperature changes and has a tendency to more easily develop wrinkles.
Normal Skin and Combination Skin
The skin feels smooth and supple, isn’t shiny in appearance, has small pores, has good circulation and is elastic. Such a complexion tends to be slightly pink.
This type of skin tends to have shiny appearance in the “T-zone”; i.e. the forehead, nose and chin. In these areas the skin has the characteristics of oily skin. The other areas of the face may be dry and feel somewhat taut. Larger pores are another attribute of this skin type.
Oily skin results from overactivity of the sebaceous glands. Such skin commonly has a shiny appearance, is oily, has large pores, lacks good circulation and has an yellowish colour. Oily skin tend to be problematic and in prone to inflammation.
Problem Skin and Sensitive Skin
This type of complexion is similar to oily skin although this problem/sensitive skin is also plagued with acne, rosacea, spots, blackheads and/or pimples.
Inflamed skin is taut, irritated, burns, itches and may have a blotchy red appearance or may show be raw and flaking. Such skin is very sensitive to temperature changes and skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema are likely.
