Tips and tricks for the 4 skin types

Because your skin is the largest organ in your body, it’s only fair that you take care of it and with so many products in the market, you’re surely going to find some time that’ll suit your skin. But before buying any skincare products, consider knowing your skin type first. 

Knowing your skin type ahead of time will help you find products that will work for you, saving you money as well as time and effort as you go from one product to the next. So to save you from that trouble, MD Skincare has listed down the 4 skin types and some tips and tricks to help you by! Find out what your skin type is down below:

  1. Oily skin

Everyone’s skin produces natural oils to keep the face moisturised but for people with oily skin, the production of oil is more excessive than others especially if you have larger pores. The bigger your pores are the more oil your skin secretes since bigger pores mean more active oil glands. So avoid using thick face creams and moisture-boosting products since this will make your face more oily throughout the day. However, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t hydrate your skin, use a more light moisturiser that’s gel-based or sheerer creams and consider products that contain glycolic acid which helps reduce the appearance of pores.

  1. Dry skin

A great thing about people with dry skin is that they have less visible pores but not treating your skin will cause visible lines, less elastic skin and lastly dull and rough complexion. It often looks dull because it’s covered with dead skin. So to avoid these causes you have to moisturise and keep your skin hydrated and remember to avoid over-exfoliating, hot showers and products that contain sulfate since this can potentially irritate the skin. Go for thicker moisturisers rather than gel-based products.

  1. Sensitive skin

People with sensitive skin are more prone to acne, itchy rashes, content dermatitis and even inflamed skin. You have to be careful when picking out a product since the effects of using a bad product can lead to massive effects. So go for mild products from face creams, makeup, skincare products and so on. Avoid using alcohol base tones to prevent irritation and redness.

  1. Combination skin

Most people are bound to have a combination of dry and oily skin and because of this, you’ll be able to find more products that cater to this skin type. But the thing about this skin type is that it can change seasonally and leave you with flaky dry skin on some parts and oily skin on others. Unlike other skin types, this will require you to use different products on your face moisturizing more on the dry areas less than the oily parts.
