Skincare basics for different skin types.
Knowing your skin type is the first step to taking care of your skin.
Moisturization is the foundation to an effective basic skincare regime, regardless of your skin type. As we look into the varying needs of the different skin types, it is essential that you know and understand your own skin condition. This will help you apply the most appropriate skin care method for your skin to achieve naturally beautiful and clear skin.

For those with more ‘TWO’ answers →Your skin type is:
Oily skin Oily skin is characterized by excessive sebum secretion, causing the skin to be sticky or greasy. Individuals with this skin type can attribute it to genetic influence, but it is also a common occurrence among those undergoing puberty, in their adolescence and early adulthood. Another cause of oily skin is the oxidation of the excessive sebum secretion by UV rays. This thickens the stratum corneum (or skin’s outermost layer) and leads to visible pores, blackheads, dull skin, dark spots, and other skin issues.
For those with more ‘THREE’ answers →Your skin type is:
Combination skin As the skin type suggests, the condition is mixed since the T-zone area is oily and sticky while the cheek areas are dry and flaky. The main characteristic of combination skin is an excessive amount of sebum but insufficient moisture content. One possible explanation for how this skin type came about is that the skin could have originally been dry or oily, but became a combination type with age.
How best to care for your skin type.
If you have dry skin, our recommendation is:
Moisturize liberally and gently to recharge skin.
Dry skin requires lots of moisture – but not all at once! We recommend that you apply an appropriate amount of a Nourishing serum each time, but spread across a few applications, as needed. The rich nourishing serum helps to prevent dryness and retains the skin’s moisture to protect your skin.
Applying a nourishing serum as priming base will help your makeup set nicely without looking cakey. It will also improve the texture of your skin such that pores are minimized and your skin looks smoother.
Since dry skin tends to be more sensitive to the physical touch, be mindful to use a gentler pressure during your skincare routine to protect the skin.
If you have oily skin, our recommendation is:
Moisturize minimally but consistently with oil-based products. During cleansing, use an adequate amount of cleansing cream so that you can remove facial grime with gentle washing and not have to rub excessively. After washing, remember to moisturize with toner essence – its oil content will help to retain the moisture in your skin, keeping it fresh. Applied onto those areas during your morning skincare routine. Remember that it is essential every morning and nightly.
Those with oily skin will experience excessive sebum production, which causes dull skin and fine wrinkles. To remove stickiness and/or shine, use a cleansing or wiping lotion before you proceed to moisturization care.
If you have combination skin, our recommendation is:
Adapting the skincare method to address your skin type!
It is important to recognize that the amount of moisturization from toner versus creams differ and its effectiveness is dependent on the skin condition. The other critical point is that you shouldn’t avoid moisturizing just because you dislike the oily or sticky feeling after applying lotion as this avoidance will create a gap between the needs of the drier and oilier parts of your skin. Areas of the face that tends to feel dry include the eye area, cheeks, and facial lines and contours. Applying moisture care will help maintain oil balance and overall hydration.
When washing your face, use a cleansing foam and start from the oilier T-zone area before proceeding to the other areas. By using this washing method, the cleansing foam will be in contact with the drier areas for a shorter time period.
In the day, use tissue to gently blot the shiny areas of your skin. Follow with a mist lotion to boost moisturization before you re-touch your makeup. These easy steps not only cleanses and refreshes the skin, but also maintains its clarity since oxidized sebum is known to cause skin dullness.
A word of advice
Is your skin’s oiliness or stickiness the result of excessive sebum or dryness?
Those with oily or combination skin types may be hesitant to use moisturizing lotions or oils since stickiness is already an issue. That said, it becomes a vicious cycle if you avoid moisturizing because the body will produce more sebum as a protective mechanism to replenish the moisture that is lost, as part of a shield effect for the skin. Hence, after using a toner, apply a small amount of a light textured moisturizing lotion or cream to shield your skin.
