Is your skin type what you think it is?

We’re probably all a lot more unobservant than we think. Half of women wear the wrong size shoes. Two thirds wear the wrong size bra. For some reason, we settle on an idea about ourselves and we stick to it. We do it with our skin. We decide that we’re one type and we don’t deviate – but the chances are, your skin type will probably fall into more than one category. It constantly changes – hormones one week, stress the next. The need for medication. A change in diet. Smoking. Drinking. Not sleeping. All of the above.

Skin is a living organ and it mirrors what’s happening in our lives and in our bodies – so in the same way that every day is different, our skin doesn't behave like a robot. It adapts and changes as much as we do – which is why it’s a good idea to check in with it every now and then to make sure you’re using the right products.

Most people will experience combination skin at some point. The ‘T Zone’ around the nose, forehead and eyes is naturally a bit oilier than the rest of the skin on your face, so one way to find out what mood your skin is in is to clean this area with a light cleanser, followed by a good toner and then leave it for a couple of hours. The results may not be what you’re expecting.

If you find that the skin is very tight, it may be that you need to start using a richer formula for a while to deal with any excess dryness . Sensitive skin usually benefits from something lighter, like a gel or serum, while skin prone to breakouts or redness may need special attention with regular masks designed to soothe and cleanse the pores. Whatever the results, ELEMIS has a solution. And you don’t need to be rigid in your choices. Adapt and evolve with your skin and meet it at every turn. The results will speak for themselves.
