Understanding Your Skin Type: A Guide To Radiant, Healthy Skin

Your skin is a remarkable organ that deserves special attention and care. 

However, to achieve radiant and healthy skin, it's essential to understand your skin type. 

Whether you have dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal skin, it’s important to identify and cater to your specific needs so you can make informed decisions about your skincare routine. 

Below, we'll take a closer look at the different skin types and provide helpful tips to keep your skin looking its best. 

Let's unlock the secrets to a glowing complexion together!

Dry Skin: Nourish and Hydrate

Dry skin can often feel tight and rough. Sometimes it suffers from flakiness or lacks natural radiance. 

To help alleviate these issues, it's important to provide your dry skin with the moisture and hydration it craves. 

Look for skincare products that are gentle, fragrance-free and enriched with nourishing natural ingredients like meadowfoam oil. 

Avoid harsh cleansers and hot water, as they can further strip much-needed moisture from your skin. Instead, opt for a gentle cleanser and follow up with a rich moisturizer to keep your skin supple and smooth. 

Or, you can rely on a product like our Cerabalm  which works as both a cleanser and a moisturizer! 

Oily Skin: Balance and Control

If your skin tends to be shiny, greasy and prone to acne breakouts, you likely have oily skin

Don't worry! 

The key to managing oily skin is balance. 

Use a gentle cleanser that won't strip away all your natural oils. Skincare products that diminish your skin’s natural oils can actually lead to excessive oil production. 

Look for lightweight moisturizers and retinol skin products that are not formulated with excessive amounts of comedogenic ingredients such as mineral oil and cocoa butter that may contribute to clogged pores. 

Apricot kernel oil, one of the key ingredients of Cerabalm, is known as nature’s retinol. This natural ingredient helps increase skin cell production and gently exfoliates skin to help keep pores from clogging. This makes Cerabalm a great choice for oily skin types. In fact, in a clinical trial, users reported a significant decrease (up to 55% in some cases) in oiliness after four weeks. 

Additionally, you can treat areas that are prone to excessive oil with our D22 Tonic. After cleansing your face, simply use a cotton round soaked with D22 Tonic to help unclog pores, exfoliate skin and reduce pore visibility. 

Combination Skin: Find Harmony

Combination skin is a unique blend of dry and oily areas. 

With combination skin types, the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) tends to be oilier, while the cheeks and other parts of the face are often dry. 

Balancing the needs of combination skin requires a targeted approach. 

Use a gentle cleanser that won't strip away moisture and follow up with lightweight, non-greasy products. 

To properly care for your combination skin, you could opt to use different products for different areas of your face. For instance, you may apply a mattifying moisturizer to your T-zone and a richer moisturizer to the drier areas. 

A more satisfying and simpler solution is to incorporate Cerablam into your skincare routine. As it’s a combination cleanser and moisturizer, it’s ideal for treating excessively oily areas while providing moisturizing comfort to drier parts of your face. 

After using Cerabalm, follow up with our D22 Tonic to help reduce clogged pores and soften dry skin texture.    

However, it’s also advisable to pay careful attention to how your combination skin reacts to different products and adjust your routine accordingly. 

Sensitive Skin: Gentle and Soothing

Sensitive skin is easily prone to irritation, redness and inflammation. 

This skin type typically requires extra care and attention to avoid triggering adverse reactions. 

Look for hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and gentle skincare products formulated specifically for sensitive skin. Opt for mild cleansers and moisturizers with calming ingredients and avoid harsh exfoliants or irritating chemicals. 

Both Cerabalm and D22 Tonic are formulated with natural ingredients that are ideal for all skin types, they are the perfect products if you have sensitive skin

If you have sensitive skin, you should always patch test new products and introduce them slowly to minimize the risk of irritation. Additionally, you should also protect your skin from the sun by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen on your skin before stepping outdoors to prevent further sensitivity or damage. We actually recommend this last step for every skin type and not just for those with sensitive skin. 

Normal Skin: Maintain and Enhance

If you've been rewarded with normal skin, congratulations! 

This skin type is well-balanced, with an even texture, few imperfections and a healthy glow. 

To maintain your normal skin's natural beauty, focus on prevention and preservation. 

Cleanse your skin gently to remove impurities, moisturize regularly to keep it hydrated and wear sunscreen daily to shield against sun damage. 

As our Cerabalm and D22 Tonic products are each formulated with an array of natural ingredients that enhance your skin's radiance, improve elasticity, reduce inflammation, unclog pores, maintain hydration and diminish signs of premature aging, they’re a great choice for normal skin
