Before deciding which cleanser is right for you, it is key to identify which skin type you have as this will help you to understand what your skin needs and find products that work for your skin type!
What’s My Skin Type?
Normal Skin Type: If you have a normal skin type, you are likely to find that you don’t experience excessive dryness or oiliness throughout the day and your skin is not prone to acne breakouts.
Combination Skin Type: If you have a combination skin type, you are likely to find that your skin is dry or normal in certain areas but oily in other areas, especially your T-zone (your forehead, nose and chin).
Oily Skin Type: Oily skin is caused by the overproduction of sebum. Sebum isn’t bad, it helps to keep your skin healthy and hydrated – but excess sebum leaves your skin greasy and shiny. If you have oily skin, you are likely to find that you experience frequent breakouts, have enlarged pores and your skin is constantly shiny.
Dry Skin Type: As the polar opposite of the oily skin type, dry skin is caused by the lack of sebum. If you have a dry skin type, you are likely to feel that your skin is tight, rough and flaky most of the time.
Sensitive Skin Type: Although sensitive skin is commonly referred to as a skin type by itself, sensitive skin is combined with one of the above skin types, like dry and sensitive skin or normal and sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, you are likely to find that your skin may become irritated upon coming into contact with certain ingredients like fragrances in products.
Acne-Prone Skin Type: Although people who oily skin is commonly assumed to have acne-prone skin, anyone can have acne-prone skin – regardless of skin type! If you have acne-prone skin, you are likely to find that you suffer from clogged pores, comedones, blemishes and frequent breakouts.
Which Ingredients Are the Best For My Skin Type?
For Normal and Dry Skin:
Panthenol is an ingredient you must have if you have dry skin. Panthenol is a pro-vitamin that is converted into vitamin B5 and is an excellent moisturizer as well as being an essential element in reinforcing your skin barrier. What makes Panthenol stand out from other moisturising agents is that it acts as both a humectant and an emollient! This means that Panthenol attracts moisture to your skin and reduces the risk of moisture loss, thus keeping your skin healthy, smooth and hydrated! Did you know that Panthenol also has anti-inflammatory properties? Research has shown that Panthenol is effective against UV-induced redness and can soothe skin irritation.
If you have dry and sensitive skin, rest assured that Panthenol will not aggravate your skin. According to experts, Panthenol is suitable for all skin types due to its abilities in skin-barrier healing and anti-inflammatory properties!
For Oily Skin and Combination Skin:
Two ingredients you will want to look out for in your cleanser is burdock root extract and aloe vera extract. First up, the burdock root. The burdock root is an impressive anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent, promoting circulation and your body’s cleansing functions! On top of that, it also has some anti-fungal and seborrhea regulating properties, making it effective in regulating greasy skin.
Next up is aloe vera. Aloe vera is no stranger to us as it is a popular ingredient in cosmetic products, but do you know the full extent of benefits it can bring to our skin? Besides its soothing properties, aloe vera also provides a great moisturising effect for acne! And the icing on the cake? Aloe vera is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores – making it a great ally to have in your battle against acne.
For Sensitive Skin:
Experts recommend mild cleansers with a sulfate-free formula. Foaming cleansers are best avoided as they can remove too much moisture! Glycerin is a non-allergenic moisturising agent that you want in your cleanser if you have sensitive skin. Besides keeping our skin elastic, soft and hydrated, Glycerin forms a protective layer around our skin barrier – protecting our skin against harsh products and environmental irritants that strip our skin of moisture.
For Acne-prone Skin:
Propolis is a popular ingredient in Korean skincare and an effective acne fighter. One of the main benefits of propolis is wound healing, making it effective in treating acne scars and pigmentation! Panthenol also works wonders if you have acne-prone skin! Since panthenol has wound-healing properties from its ability to repair and reinforce your skin barrier, the healing process of your acne scars will benefit from this powerful ingredient.
