What Is My Skin Type?

The world of skincare is as confusing as a puzzle. You must have been to a store to buy skincare products and upon reaching the first question they slam at with is ‘what is your skin type?’. But it is okay! We have got you covered.

Educating yourself about your skin type is not something impossible to learn. To know your skin type means understanding its needs and treating it accordingly. So let’s learn about four basic types of skin.

Normal skin:

Lucky you! As with normal skin type, you must hardly have any sensitivity, you don’t experience any breakouts, pores are almost not evident, and your skin has a silky, smooth texture. Normal skin barely reacts to any ingredients which give you a variety of options to choose from. But still, you need to be careful about what you are putting on your skin. You must look for skin-friendly elements. The good news? Arvelon keeps this in mind while formulating its products so that you never have to worry about skincare again! 

Oily skin:

People with oily skin are no stranger to problems such as a greasy or shiny face, enlarged or clogged pores, and breakouts or pimples. Their makeup doesn’t seem to stay on their face, rather it turns shiny and tends to slide off, the areas which have more oil production have whiteheads and blackheads too. Yes, it's a nightmare! If you have experienced these symptoms then you have an oily skin type.

To control the greasy appearance is the main concern of oily skin. Non-comedogenic products are best for this type of skin such as our Skin Purifying Pack which is formulated especially for those struggling with oily skin. With Clarifying Clay mask, Clarifying Cream, Clarifying Microfoliant Scrub, and Clarifying Oil-Free Cleanser, it is a complete package to help you target and manage all your oily skin troubles. These products are non-comedogenic and also contain glycolic acid which is one of the most effective acids to deal with oily skin without causing any harm to the skin. Additionally, be sure to stay away from items such as occlusives and face oils at all costs. Simply follow these trouble-free instructions and you are good to go! 

Dry skin:

Dry skin type is marked by cracking, flaking, itching, and scaling. If you feel tightness and roughness after washing your face then it is quite clear that you have dry skin. If left unchecked or untreated it can lead to serious problems such as dermatitis and eczema. But still, no harm has been done. Take notes of the following advice and products to save yourself from irreversible trouble.

The best strategy to tackle dryness is to use moisturizing creams and cleansers. Nourishing Cleanser and Moisturiser from Arvelon contain coconut oil and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most powerful substances that tend to keep moisture locked in and boosts skin elasticity and collagen. Using fragranced products and harsh soaps is off-limits if you have dry skin. Limiting bath time, using a humidifier, and wearing sunscreen can all act as a bonus for your skin. 

Combination skin

When hydrating creams feel too greasy and oil-absorbing products leave the skin too dry, this means that your skin is neither dry nor oily. Now, you are still wondering which type of skin you have as it shows properties of both dry and oily skin. But don’t be confused as the answer is combination skin. It is usually defined as a type of skin with an oily t-zone, while other areas of the face appear to be dry. 

Products that can help you to deal with this tricky condition include balancing creams and moisturizers. Adding Flawless Glow Face Wash and Flawless Glow Scrub can help you tackle this condition in the best way possible. Balancing toners and spot treatments can also turn into your skin’s best friend.
