How to Tell Which Product Is Best for Your Skin Type

 

Dry/Sensitive Skin

Dry skin feels tight, rough and is more prone to wrinkles. Sensitive skin is easily irritated, and reacts to weather changes, stress or medications. Rashes and easily flushed skin are also characteristics of sensitive skin.

If you have dry or sensitive skin, then you’ll want to look for products with the orange label. The Vital C line will hydrate and stimulate the natural oils in the skin to keep it well lubricated, without clogging the pores.

Acne/Oily Skin

Oily skin has an overabundance of oil secretion. The skin will feel thicker and has enlarged pores. Often those with oily skin want to use products that contain alcohol or other drying ingredients—this will only make it worse.

 Oily or Acne Prone

Then you’ll want to look for the blue labels. The Clear Cell line uses salicylic acid, which will eliminate excess oil and gently exfoliate the skin, and is ideal for acne.

Combination/Teenage Skin

Many find that they are oily in their “T” zone (forehead, nose and chin) and dry everywhere else. This is often the case for teenagers, which is why you need to look for the green label. The ORMEDIC line is an organic blend of natural nutrients that will restore the skin’s natural pH balance.

Pigmentation

Dark patches on the skin are caused by extra melanin in your body. This can be the result of too much sun exposure or an underlying medical condition. For pigmentation remedies you’ll want to look for the purple label. The ILUMA line contains botanical lightening agents that will correct and prevent pigmentation.

Aging Skin

To slow down the aging process and help diminish surface lines you’ll want to look for the white label. The AGELESS line uses traditional anti-aging ingredients like glycolic acid, which will remove the outer layer of dead skin cells bringing fresh new skin to the surface, helping to erase lines.

The MAX stem cell line is labeled with platinum, and contains the breakthrough plant derived Stem Cell technology. This will not only prevent aging but also relax fine lines and crows feet.

Sun Protection

The last step to any good skincare routine is sun protection. The Prevention + line is labeled yellow, and will not only protect your skin from sun damage, but includes a moisturizer formulated for your specific skin type.
