Discover your skin type

Discover and understand your skin type:
our practical guide!

You have probably asked yourself one day,
What type of skin do I have? Or what treatment is suitable for my skin? What are the signs of dehydrated skin?

The skin is a formidable organ that plays a crucial role in protecting us from external aggressions, regulating our body temperature and allowing us to feel sensations.
Understanding your skin type is therefore essential to adopt a suitable and effective skincare routine.
In this little practical guide, we will go through and detail the different skin types as well as skin conditions, in order to help you better understand the specific needs of your skin!

The different skin types

1. Dry skin

Dry skin is characterized by low production of sebum , the oil naturally produced by the skin's sebaceous glands. It tends to appear dull and may have areas of dryness or flaking, manifesting as roughness to the touch. People with dry skin can often experience tightness and itching, especially after taking a shower or bath.

2. Normal skin

Normal skin is considered the ideal to achieve . It is characterized by a smooth and supple texture, with medium-sized pores and few or no imperfections. Well hydrated, it generally does not have pronounced dry or oily areas. People with normal skin are blessed with a natural balance and can use a variety of skin care products without experiencing major problems.

3. Combination skin

Combination skin is a combination of dry and oily skin . It often has an oilier T-zone (forehead, nose and chin), with enlarged pores and a thicker texture, while the cheeks may be dry and rough. This duality of the skin can make the choice of care products a little more complex, because it is necessary to find a balance between hydration and control of sebum secretion.

4. Oily skin

Oily skin is characterized by excessive sebum production , which gives it a shiny and oily appearance. Skin pores are often enlarged and the texture is thick. People with oily skin are often prone to blemishes such as pimples, blackheads or breakouts.

The different skin conditions

1. Dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin is a condition where the skin lacks water . It may appear dull and rough to the touch, with visible fine lines, particularly on the cheeks and forehead. This dehydration can be caused by various factors such as skin aging, excessive exposure to the sun or harsh skincare products.

2. Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin reacts easily to external stimuli such as facial care products, stress or even touch . It is characterized by redness, itching, irritation or tingling. People with sensitive skin should be especially careful about the products they use and opt for gentle, soothing formulas.

3. Mature skin

Mature skin shows signs of aging such as wrinkles, loss of firmness, and possibly dark spots . These signs are often accentuated by external factors such as pollution or prolonged exposure to the sun. A suitable anti-aging skincare routine can help alleviate these signs and keep skin healthy.

4. Skin with imperfections

Blemished skin is prone to pimples, blackheads and cysts . The different factors that contribute to the development of blemishes include stress, hormonal imbalances, an unbalanced diet or the use of overly aggressive skincare products.

By recognizing your skin type and condition, you will be able to adapt your skincare routine to meet your skin's specific needs.
