Know Your Skin


Skin care isn’t one-size-fits-all, so you should use products that are specific to your skin care needs! Don’t know if you have oily skin or combination skin? The experts break down how to determine your skin type and the best way to care for it.



Normal

• Not too dry or oily

• Smooth Texture

• Fine pores


Tip:

“You might not see signs of aging, but it is good to begin [incorporating] a gentle cleanser containing an alpha-hydroxy into your skin care regimen.”


Dry

• Slight to severe flaking or peeling

• Easily irritated


Tip:

“Use products that do not contain harsh ingredients, yet moisturize the skin. The M.A.D. Skincare Delicate Skin Cleansing Gel contains a combination of licorice extract, chamomile extract and aloe vera that quenches dry skin..”


Oily

• Shiny or greasy appearance

• Pores look larger

• Tends to experience breakouts


Tip:

“Look for cleanser that helps keep pores clear. A cleanser with a potent blend containing 2% Salicylic Acid and also contains botanicals to fight oil will help balance oily prone skin.”


Combination

• Oily in the T-zone area

• Dry in the cheek area

• Tends to experience breakouts


Tip:

“Manage excess oil with a cleanser that has salicylic acid to help reduce oil buildup”


Sensitive

• Redness

• Irritation

• Dryness


Tip:

“Be sure your cleanser is deep cleaning yet gentle. Something that won’t dry out your skin or cause irritation like Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser.”


Mature

• Uneven skin tone

• Fine lines and wrinkles

• Skin is more fragile


Tip:

“Incorporate a cleanser with ingredients like an alpha-hydroxy for exfoliation and a skin conditioner for fragile skin, irritation, and redness to help with the appearance of skin elasticity.”
