Dry Skin
Daily Skincare Routine

Improper skin care, such as insufficient lubrication, and lack of protection against moisture loss further exacerbate dryness in already dry skin. Sun protection is extremely important.

The skin prone to drying is tight, itchy and rough. It tends to be thin, fine, delicate and very sensitive. Neglected, becomes cracked and chapped. In this case, you should avoid products containing detergents, parabens and reach for moisturising, soothing and nourishing herbs and essential oils. The skin needs extra hydration, lubrication and protection. They can be added to creams, masks, tonic water, lotions, ointments, body scrubs, and carrier oils.

Normal Skin

It has excellent hydration, muscle tone, and resilience. Normal skin looks soft, supple and has a healthy glow skincare routineand colour, fine texture, and there are no open pores or fine lines. The best example is that of children. It is the rarest skin type these days.

Normal skin requires cleansing, morning and evening, use of moisturizer durng the day to prevent moisture loss and hydrating creams at night. An occasional exfoliation is also beneficial.

(Just because the skin is in good condition, it does not mean we can forget about taking care of it. It is important to prevent moisture loss and protect the skin from possible damage).

Combination Skin
Daily Skincare Routine

It is characterised by the existence of two or more different conditions. Skin can be oily around the nose, skincare routineforehead, and the chin (T-zone), but dry on the rest of the face. Or skin can be dry, but with acne problems. It tends to be partly dry and partly oily and subject to blackheads and dilated pores. When treating a combination skin, each area is treated for its particular condition.

For example, when applying a mask, a mask formulated for oily skin is applied to the oily area and a mask formulated for dry skin is applied to dry areas.

the most useful essential oils are geranium, lavender and palmarosa because of their balancing effect on the sebaceous glands.

Oily Skin

For the care of the skin are needed: a toning facial cleanser, scrub, mask absorbing too much sebum, and gentle serum with essential oils and herbs. These remove excessive sebum, without drying the skin at the same time.

Essential oils can help in two ways. Firstly, they reduce the amount of sebum produced by the glands, and Geranium is a good example here, as it has balancing effect on endocrine system and on the sebaceous glands (Davis 2007). Secondly, essential oils control the bacteria responsible for any infection. Cedarwood, Grapefruit and Lavender among others have antiseptic properties and can keep your skin free of bacteria.
