What's My Skin Type?
Updated: Mar 7, 2019
Understanding your skin type is imperative when it comes to choosing the right products for your face and body in order to have healthy skin that glows. Although everyone has unique skin, you should know whether your skin falls into the general categories of dry, oily, combination or sensitive skin. Also, it is normal to have different variations of skin on different parts of your body. So don’t be alarmed!
You may have dry skin due to genetics, hormones, climate changes or diet. Drinking plenty of water can help to hydrate dry skin which helps to minimize flaking, peeling and roughness. One can also use oil based face treatments, such as the SunGlow Naturals Glow Serum, or methods of exfoliation that do not rid your skin of natural oils.
Oily skin tends to look younger because the natural oils serve as a moisturizer. However, excess oil on the skin can lead to clogged pores and various forms of acne (especially on the face). It is best to cleanse and exfoliate the skin on a regular basis.
Combination skin happens when you have oily skin in certain areas and dry skin in others. For example, a person may have dry cheeks and an oily forehead or chin area. In this case, acne breakouts may happen in the oily areas and flaking or peeling in the others. This skin type is sometimes referred to as “normal.”
Dealing with sensitive skin can sometimes be a challenge, especially, if you have allergies and react to certain ingredients. With that said, you should always read the ingredients on any skin care product you purchase! It is best to use products that have natural or organic ingredients. A great product to try for your face and/or body is the SunGlow Naturals Body Butter. The rule of thumb is, if you can’t pronounce an ingredient or if you research the ingredient and you still can’t understand what it is for, then you probably shouldn’t put it on your skin. You should definitely avoid products that include synthetic fragrances, parabens and alcohol. This will minimize the risk of inflammation, redness and rough patches due to allergic reactions.
Your skin type may change over time. It is up to you to keep up with your skin in order to ensure that it remains healthy. No matter what, always remember that you are beautiful. Glow Girl!
