Hey! What do you know about your skin? Is your skin normal, dry, oily, combination, acne-prone, or sensitive? You may think you’ve got an idea about your skin code, but chances are, you probably aren’t sure! Take the 2-minute skincare quiz to find out!! It’s impossible to truly treat your skin properly without knowing fully what you’re working with.
The most important step in caring for your skin comes in understanding your specific skin type and how it adapts to certain circumstances or seasonality. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, as complex and intelligent as your heart, lungs, liver and other vital organs. Using cleansers and treatments that are too harsh, even if they are recommended for excessive oiliness, may send the signal to your skin that more oil is actually needed. Conversely, applying moisturizers that are too thick or heavy can result in decreased natural oil production, resulting in even drier skin. Taking the time to learn your skin’s specific needs will help you to choose the right options that will balance skin resulting in a healthier, more radiant complexion.
