Do you know what bracket your skin falls into?

Are you sometimes get overwhelmed in the skincare aisle at the supermarket?  This series of blogs will be for you.  I always used to struggle too,  your are not alone and I will help guide you through the minefield.

  I will cover each skin type over the next few blogs in this skincare for brides series.  Together, we will make sure you can identify the characteristics of your own skin.  Moving forward, this will help choosing the correct products easier.  You will find products suitable for your skin and improve its condition and overall look.  This will mean you can wear less makeup and still look amazing.

First of all let’s start with the rarest…… NORMAL SKIN.

Normal skin…Yes, it is, in fact, rare to find someone with skin that is classed as normal.

The normal skin type is classed as well balanced with an even texture and tone.  If you’re lucky enough to fall into this category, you are few and far between so congratulations on being quite unique.

Here are the know characteristics of you lucky lot.

Characteristics of Normal skin…

  • You have no or few imperfections
  • No severe sensitivity
  • There is no visible pores
  • A radiant complexion

 Those of you with normal skin have a very balanced complexion because it is neither too dry or too oily.  In general, the T-Zone (nose, forehead and chin) can be a little oily but you will find the skin is well balanced.  It is not lacking moisture or overproducing sebum (the light yellow, oily substance that the skin produces to hydrate or lubricate skin and hair).  With normal skin you are pretty much able to use whatever products you like and so you can certainly mix up your routine often.

Having this skin type doesn’t mean you don’t or won’t develop skin concerns or complaints.  Because prevention is the best remedy, get yourself into a good skincare regime well ahead of any concerns.  If you start by spring cleaning your products and purchase those that will give you optimum results.

 I have found that with normal skin you will have a  pick of most products and brands on the market.  Therefore, start with a gentle, effective daily cleanser followed by a toner and good moisturiser is a great way to start.  Add in a weekly treatment facial scrub and mask and ensure you wear your SPF (Sun Protection Factor) DAILY, come rain or shine!
