We all have different skin types, ranging from oily skin to dry skin and everything in between. It can even be a combination skin type. As if that isn’t confusing enough, your skin type can change over time. As you mature, your skin is more likely to fall into a problem category, and you are more likely to lose confidence.
Your skin type will depend on how hydrated it is, the amount of oil you produce and how sensitive it is. Avoiding direct sunlight will help your skin look its best, as well as getting plenty of sleep and drinking enough water. Smoking will affect your skin badly too, so this should be avoided.
Another important thing that you must do is moisturize and you must ensure you find the right moisturizer for your skin type. This will help to keep your skin healthy and great looking, as well as preventing premature aging.
Dr Sylvia Skin Care really cares about helping you feel beautiful and confident, with a range of beauty products to suit all skin types.
Moisturizer for Dry Skin and Mature Skin Type
If you have dry skin, the Advanced B5 Hydration moisturizer has many anti-aging benefits when added to your daily skin care routine. It instantly soothes any dryness and is non-greasy, giving it a lovely feel when applied. It is a potent anti aging gel-serum containing multiple sources of Vitamin B and helps give a youthful appearance.
With a pH of 5.2-5.7 it is well balanced, meaning it is suitable for all skin types. It also works well on mature skin, as it balances matured, devitalized and tired-looking skin. It stimulates healthier cell growth, development and repair and the Phyto Hyaluronate moisturizes the skin, leaving it smooth and supple.
You don’t need to use much at once, meaning it will provide you with beautiful, more radiant looking skin for longer.
Moisturizer for Oily Skin and Acne-Prone Skin
If you have an oily skin type, you will suffer from excess sebum on the skin’s surface, leading to clogged pores and acne. Many people think that they shouldn’t moisturize oily skin but this is not the case. The skin can still be dehydrated, even if it is producing too much oil.
If you are prone to premenstrual breakout, it is recommended that you take a calcium/magnesium supplement on a regular basis.
The Botanical Hydration Gel is rich in botanical extracts and nourishing vitamins A, C and E. It hydrates the skin, as well as encouraging a more balanced sebum production. It contains essential oils of tea tree and lavender, which combat bacteria contributing to blemishes and skin irritation.
When applied, it leaves a lovely smooth, matte finish and you feel hydrated and fresh. It is suitable for those with a combination skin type, as well as anyone prone to acne.
This gel based moisturizer contains Liquorice Root Extract, which decreases skin inflammation caused by acne. It absorbs quickly into the skin, which makes it ideal for anyone who dislikes sticky creams.
The Clarifying Moisturizer is a very light, non-comedogenic gel-cream, which is quickly absorbed into the skin to leave a non-sticky feeling. It hydrates the skin and seals in moisture, while its antioxidants and asafoetida extract help to promote healing.
Old blemishes may have caused discoloration, but this moisturizer helps to reduce melanocyte activity, which in turn fades red or brown spots. You are left with a smooth, clean and clear complexion.
It is well suited to anyone with normal or sensitive skin types, but can be used on any skin types. This makes it a very versatile beauty product, which works well for anyone who doesn’t like thick, heavy feeling creams.
If you suffer from sensitive skin, your skin can have redness, itching, dryness and even burning. One of the best things you can do is to find out what triggers these symptoms and avoid them. One of these triggers can be using the wrong beauty products, so make sure you choose a good moisturizer designed specifically for your skin type.
Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin
The Ultra Sensitive Moisturizer is color, fragrance and Paraben-free. It can be used as a post-peel or post-operative moisturizer, to alleviate the appearance of fine lines and soothe the skin. There is a delicate blend of vitamin-rich oils, which help to protect the skin and leave it feeling fresh and healthy.
The Shea Butter in it nourishes and protects fragile skin, promoting the skin’s own ability to self-repair. It also contains Arnica and Vitamin K, which effectively minimize the appearance of redness and broken capillaries. Your skin is left with a lovely smooth complexion and a more youthful appearance.
Moisturizer for Normal Skin
If you have normal skin then you’re one of those really favoured with good oil production, smooth skin and no problematic skin concerns! If you want to keep your skin looking healthy as long as possible, then it is still a must to have an effective skin care routine that can prevent premature aging. Your skin care can also be based on your preference or even the season. You also have the luxury to use light moisturizer such as Botanical Hydration Gel in the morning and a rich or potent moisturizer such as Advanced B5 Hydration at night.
Adding to an effective skin care regime, ensure that you eat a healthy, well balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables. A Mediterranean diet with high consumption of vegetables is good for many health reasons, including the youth-boosting benefits of olive oil and the increased levels of the skin’s natural SPF from tomatoes. Did you know that dark chocolate can help to hydrate skin? Not bad for a food that is so enjoyable.
But whatever your skin type, there is a moisturizer out there for you. Adding this important step into your skin care routine will help keep your skin looking healthy, beautiful and youthful. Never go to bed without first taking off your makeup and ensure that you drink plenty of water. The recommended amount is 6-8 glasses a day, with the rest coming from the food you eat.
