Just like you wouldn’t wear shoes that don’t fit, you shouldn’t use skincare products that aren’t suited to your skin type. Understanding and recognizing your specific type is pivotal to achieving a radiant complexion. So, let’s begin our skin exploration journey together.

1. The Five Primary Skin Types

Normal Skin:

Characteristics: Not too dry, not too oily, rare breakouts, pores are not enlarged.
Heather Grace’s recommendation: Opt for balanced products that maintain your skin’s natural harmony. Use a hydrating face cleanser and moisturizer, such as the Antioxidant Hydrating Cream to help achieve balance.

Dry Skin:

Characteristics: Rough patches, tightness, visible lines, less elasticity.
Heather Grace’s recommendation: Dive into hydrating serums like the Daily Repair Serum and rich moisturizers to restore skin’s moisture barrier.

Oily Skin:

Characteristics: Shiny complexion, enlarged pores, prone to acne and pimples.
Heather Grace’s recommendation: Seek out lightweight, non-comedogenic products that can regulate sebum production such as the Blemish Repair Serum

Combination Skin:

Characteristics: Oily in some areas (usually the T-zone) and dry in others.
Heather Grace recommendation: Use tailored products for different areas of the face or balanced formulas that cater to both needs. The Rose Glow Face Mask + Scrub is customizable to suit all areas of your skins needs.

Sensitive Skin:

Characteristics: Redness, itching, burning, and irritation.
Heather Grace recommendation: Embrace gentle, soothing formulas free from potential irritants. The Chamomile Rose Face Cleanser followed by the Rose Hydrating Face Mist could be what your skin craves.

2. Factors Influencing Your Skin Type

Genetics: Often, skin type is hereditary. Look to your family members for clues!
Weather & Climate: Living in humid vs. dry areas can impact your skin health and type.
Diet: Hydration, fatty acids, and antioxidants play a pivotal role in skin health.
Stress: Chronic stress can lead to breakouts and even accelerate aging.
Medications: Some medicines can affect sebum production or cause dryness.

3. How to Determine Your Skin Type at Home

The Barefaced Test:
Start with a clean face. Leave it product-free and avoid touching it for an hour. After, dab a tissue on different areas of the face. If the tissue picks up oil from the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin), you likely have combination or oily skin. By not seeing oil, your skin might be dry or normal. If your skin shows signs of redness or feels itchy, it could be sensitive.

4. Why It Matters

By understanding your skin type, you can:

Select the most effective products tailored to your needs.
Avoid common skincare pitfalls specific to your skin type.
Achieve faster, more visible results.
