Basic Skin care tips:

The most important aspect of a good skin care regimen for normal skin is that it doesn't strip skin of moisture. Retaining skin moisture should always be your goal.

  • Be sure to cleanse and tone twice daily with a mild Cleanser and Toner.
  • In addition to using a Moisturizer after toning, use one under makeup to help retain surface moisture.
  • Avoid direct heat on the face, including that from blow dryers.
  • Once every week, stimulate the circulation and smooth the surface of your face by treating yourself to Glow and Facial Masque.
  • Any time your skin becomes slightly oily or slightly dry in any area, correct these tendencies by following the advice given regarding these types of skin.

Tips for combination skin

With combination skin, you can have two kinds of skin at the same time. Your cheeks may be dry or simply not oily, but your T-zone - the 'T' formed by your forehead, nose and chin - is oily. The T-zone area has more sebaceous oil glands than other parts of the face. The pores in this area are also larger, in order to accommodate the large flow of oil produced.

Tips for oily skin

Oily skin feels relaxed and supple, but looks shiny and is much more prone to outbreaks of spots. This is because of a heightened production of sebum (oil) by the sebaceous (oil producing) glands - too much sebum can cause a blockage in the duct, leading to inflammation and pimples. Sebaceous glands are unevenly distributed, being more concentrated around the scalp, on the forehead, along the nose and on the chin, and scarcer on the cheeks and neck, and around the eyes. As a result, most skins tend to be oily only in patches.

Tips for dry skin

Dry skin is dull, feels tight after washing, and flakes, scales and chaps easily. It has a low level of sebum and can be prone to sensitivity. The skin has a parched look caused by its inability to retain moisture. It is more likely to react adversely to harsh chemicals and will tend to make wrinkles look more prominent - although it won't actually cause wrinkles. Most skins tend to get drier as they get older.
