Skin types include normal, oily, combination, dry and dehydrated and sensitive skin. It is possible to have a combination of skin types in different areas of the skin. As well, your skin type may change over time and as you age. Your skin type is dependent on:
- The hydration level of your skin which affects the skin’s elasticity and comfort
- The Oil (lipid) content which will affect the skin's softness
- Sensitivity level
More people think they have Sensitive Skin than actually do. We have been well trained by advertisers to think that we have sensitive skin when in fact we have one of the four types of skin listed above. If you do have sensitive skin it is important to see what ingredients are making your skin sensitive and may cause the following:
- Redness or red patches
- Itching and scratching
- Burning or a rash
- Excessive dryness
Be careful when choosing products to not assume because a product is natural or organic that it may be fine for sensitive skin. Your skin may have as strong a reaction to some of the natural ingredients as to non-natural products.
We have included products here that are best suited to sensitive skin. If you are not sure which product is right for you, please give us a call at 1-855-687-3886.
