How to Build Your Skincare Routine Based on Your Skin Type

Posted in Skincare on February 27 2022 at 10:26 PM
Every person's skin is unique. Because your skin requires specialised goods and solutions, one-size-fits-all items rarely work for persons with most skin disorders. It might be difficult to develop a skin care routine, especially if many of your friends have similar routines that don't work for you. If you're having trouble coming up with a routine that improves the appearance of your skin, you'll need to do some study and put in some effort.



Step 1:

Determining your skin type is the first step in creating a skin care routine that is right for you. Keep in mind that not everyone will fit neatly into these categories. These should be used as a guide to help you select the proper items for your skin's needs.


Skin Types

Your skin can be classified into one of four categories:


Normal skin is exactly what it says on the tin. The skin isn't too oily or dry, it's free of blemishes and discolorations, and it just requires basic but constant maintenance. People with this skin type can typically purchase a wide range of cosmetics and skincare items.



Flaky, cracked, and even red and tender skin are all symptoms of dry skin. Sensitive skin is usually always dry. Purchasing cosmetics and skincare items might be difficult, not because there aren't any, but because the skin is quickly irritated or become drier by product use. Dry skin necessitates extra attention. Because dry skin is dull, moisturising and brightening solutions are essential.



Excess sebum is produced by oily skin types, which builds up on the skin during the day. Oily skin necessitates particular skincare and cosmetics. The oiliest part of the face is usually the T zone (over the forehead and down the nose). This skin type suffers from acne more frequently than other skin types. Mattifying creams and foundations are ideal for this skin type.



One or more of the previously described skin types are combined in the mixture skin type. Dry patches may appear throughout the skin, but it may also have an oily T zone, an oily T zone and normal skin everywhere else, or normal skin with the rare dry patch. This skin necessitates a thorough understanding of its various varieties, so do your homework! Make use of the skincare experts at your disposal to learn more about your skin type.


Step 2:

Make an appointment with an esthetician, dermatologist, or both! Don't go it alone when it comes to skin issues. Both types of experts can assist you in determining which items are best for you. Before attempting to incorporate any new product into your skincare routine, check your skincare specialist if you are taking any medicine for any condition, whether topical, oral, or injectable.


Step 3:

Now is the time to start working on your regimen (after consulting your dermatologist or esthetician).


Normal Skin

You have the easiest skin type to work with, so congrats! To avoid breakouts, develop a cleansing routine that eliminates all of your makeup, and treat yourself to a facial once in a while! You might choose to focus on firming and lifting your skin, enhancing your radiance, or brightening dull areas, depending on your skin care goals. All of these goals and types of routines can assist you regardless of your age! It's never too soon to begin an anti-aging routine. Don’t forget to incorporate sun protection in your routine because SPF is your BFF.


Oily Skin

Look for items that will mattify your skin and keep oil at bay. Makeup that is "brightening" or "dewey" should be avoided. Even if it seems contradictory, oily skin requires moisture. If you suffer from acne (you're not alone! ), it's critical to include acne treatments in your daily routine. The best advice we can provide you is to avoid touching your face and picking or popping blemishes. To help avoid acne, try to eliminate oily and sugary items from your diet. Also, wash your face once or twice a day, but don't scrub it too hard. If your face is reacting to your washing regimen, try reducing the amount of time you spend doing so. Always wear an SPF, whether it's under or over your makeup. Sun damage can injure your fragile skin now and cause severe problems later, regardless of your skin type.


Dry Skin

Create a skin care routine that hydrates your skin and avoid acne prevention and treatments if at all possible. Words like "mattifying" suggest that the product will stick to your face's dry spots. Don't be afraid to use SPF, just like the other skin types.


Combination Skin

Combination skin types are notoriously difficult to maintain a routine for. It's possible that you'll need to combine aspects from all of the above-mentioned regimens. Make your dermatologist and esthetician your best friends since you'll need their help in figuring out how to care for your skin properly. One thing to keep in mind, regardless of your combination skin type: SPF!
