DETERMINE SKIN TYPE, TARGET CARE
Skin type 1: dry skin
Dry skin primarily lacks moisture and lipids - i.e. fats. This affects their resilience. This is why dry skin is not very elastic, tense and in many cases prone to itching. She often reacts to environmental influences with irritation. Fill the moisture depots with special care creams. In addition, you also restore the lipid balance and thus strengthen the protective barrier of the skin.
This is how dry skin is:
- Fine-pored and matt
- Blemishes rarely occur
- Feels rather rough

However, this is a condition rather than a skin type. That means: Depending on external and physical factors, the skin can react sensitively from time to time. Then she needs special care that protects and at the same time strengthens the skin barrier.
This is how sensitive skin is:
- Reacts sensitively to (environmental) stimuli

This is how oily skin is:
- Looks pale

Tips for oily skin:
- Removing make-up and thorough cleaning are all the more important for oily skin. Be sure to remove makeup, dirt, and sebum in the evening. This will prevent clogged pores and the formation of blackheads and pimples.

- Non-comedogenic care and make-up products prevent the pores from becoming clogged.
Skin type 5: blemished skin
Oily skin often leads to an impure appearance. Here too, overactive sebum glands are the cause of blemishes. Because: If excess skin fat, loose skin cells and dirt stick together, the pore openings and block Blackheads arise. Damaging bacteria can penetrate the skin through the enlarged pores and thus cause inflammation.
So is blemished skin:
- Clogged pores
- Light or dark blackheads

In the T-zone, i.e. on the forehead, nose and chin, the skin appears shiny and often with blackheads and pimples. In contrast, the skin on the cheeks is more prone to dryness.

- Combine different ones Masksto care for the different skin areas according to type. Ideally, dry cheeks spoil you with rich ones Cream masks.
Skin type 7: mature skin
The skin structure changes with age, which slows down several processes. Cell metabolism and sebaceous glands slow down their activity. It takes more time for the skin to regenerate and the cells can no longer store moisture as well.
There are also a number of environmental factors that affect the Promote the aging process of the skin, e.g. B. UV radiation and air pollution.
