know your type of facial skin


kulit bermasalah? atasinya.. HAHA *cakap kat diri sendiri ni. i believe that the first main step of taking care of your facial skin is to know the skin type. So, aku pun googled laa sedikit sebanyak about skin2 ni to be shared (untuk diri sendiri jugak ni kuikui). There are five basic face skin types. however, a person's facial skin can vary at different times during our lives due to illness or for other reasons. The information below regarding skin types will give you some idea of where your skin fits and how best to care for it.

Dry Skin Types
Dry skin is caused by under or inactive oil glands that do not produce enough sebum to keep the skin naturally lubricated. It usually has a dull appearance, feels dry and itchy and is sometimes sensitive. Dry skin must be hydrated regularly from the inside (with fresh water) and outside with (mists), as well as moisturized with rich hydrating creams or lotions.

Oily Skin Types
Oily skin is caused by glands that produce too much sebum, resulting in skin that has a greasy slippery texture, appears shiny and is frequently has large, clogged pores. Oily skin types are prone to develop acne, a condition resulting from sebum trapped inside the skin and causing pus-filled lesions known as comedones. Despite these drawbacks, oily skin generally remains younger looking and more supple over time than other skin types. Oily skin benefits from periodic herbal steam treatments and clay masks.

Sensitive Skin Types
Sensitive skin can be dry, normal, or oily and is characterized by delicacy which is why we feel it is more of a skin condition than a skin type. It frequently reacts adversely to environmental conditions and often requires special treatment in order to remain in good condition. This skin type is prone to react adversely to cosmetics containing alcohol, synthetically manufactured oil type ingredients, fragrance oils, and artificial colors. Sensitive skin benefits greatly from natural, gentle, skin care products and treatments, including light steaming and some essential oils.

Normal Skin Types
In normal skin, the oil glands produce sebum at a moderate rate, resulting in a balanced state, not too oily and not too dry. Normal skin looks consistently plump, moist, and vibrant. What a great blessing but it still requires no less attention than other skin types. It benefits from regular cleansing, toning and moisturizing.

Combination Skin Types
Most people have at least two different types of facial skin at any given time. The combination of skin is frequently characterized by an oily “T-zone” area, which covers the forehead, nose and chin. While the skin around the cheeks, eyes and mouth is normal or dry. These different types of skin call for different treatments, so people with combination skin should assess their skin regularly and use different products on different areas of the face.


hmmm. i was told by my facial consultant that my facial skin is the COMBINATION SKIN TYPE. dry tapi kat t-zone area oily. tapi more to DRY la. so sekarang aku guna facial product yang boleh tolong mosturize the skin.




tak kisah la jenama apa kan. yang penting kulit aku boleh elok. yang aku pakai ni product yang slimming sactuary guna. since aku buat facial package kat situ, baik pakai trus product die.
p/s: pakai yang basics je, senang nak maintain

sape2 yang sama jenis kulit dengan aku, let me share with you the contributing factors that can act as the causes of dry skin (googled):

Dehydration : This can happen when you are either not drinking enough water or consuming too many sugary, caffeinated products, such as coffee or soda.

Weather : Cold weather dries out skin, making it uncomfortable and sometimes cracked. This is the most important time of the year to make sure you are using a good, deep moisturizing lotion on your face and body.

Allergens : If you are prone to allergies, certain times of the year can cause your skin to be dry and tight. Allergy medications can contribute to dry skin as well.

Irritants : These can include perfumes, laundry detergent and chemicals in your beauty and skin care products that irritate the skin and cause overall dryness

the first two really disturbs me. my skin might become so dry sebab
(1)dehyrated (memang kurang minum air sekarang) and
(2)weather (bukan duduk overseas pun kan, tapi mmg gatal everynight nak tidur bukak air-cond).

so, lepas ni nak minum air bnyk2 then if nak tido ngan air-cond, pakai lotion (kalau malas, tido je la ngan kipas)
