In skincare, there’s no one-size-fits-all. What works for your best friend might not work for you. Finding the right organic skincare products according to your skin type might take a little time and patience, but it’s still worth it. We believe there is no such thing as a bad product, sometimes people just use the wrong product that doesn’t suit their skin type. People with sensitive and acne-prone skin need to be more cautious about what they are using on their skin It is about finding the right product as per your skin type and requirement.
Before we explain different skin types and products that suit them, here are a few things you should keep in mind.
Balance your skin type:
Oily - Rebalance with cleanser and clay mask
Dry - Hydrate and moisturize
Combination - Tackle with Vitamin C
Sensitive - Avoid harsh products & ingredients
Normal - Use antioxidant-rich products
Always do a patch test:
A patch test is a smart practice to eliminate a product. Not just sensitive skin types, everyone should patch-test new skin care products to save them from skin reactions. A patch test can help determine if certain products or ingredients will cause allergic reactions, irritate your skin, or clog your pores.
Let’s discuss how to choose skin care products as per your skin type.
Normal skin- Normal skin may not be troublesome, but it also needs some tender love care. Choose a product that keeps your skin hydrated and smooth. C The Glow Brightening Concentrate enriched with Kakadu Plum has antioxidant and anti-ageing properties that keep your skin youthful. It revives dull skin, clears skin, provides anti-ageing benefits, and much more! After using a gentle face wash, apply C The Glow Brightening Concentrate to your skin for balanced care.
Dry skin- Dry skin appears dull, less elastic and is more prone to fine lines than any other skin type. In winter, dry skin might become flakier; therefore, opt for skincare that helps maintain the skin's protective moisture barrier, such as Kakadu Plum. We recommend Ikkai C The Glow Souffle Creme. This day creme acts as a protective barrier between your skin and the external environment, keeping the skin hydrated, moisturized and nourished.
Sensitive skin- Sensitive skin is prone to redness, inflammation, and rashes. To treat sensitive skin, look for skin-soothing, nourishing, and hydrating ingredients. Using antioxidant-rich Vitamin C-infused facial oil helps to comfort, soothe, and calm the skin's natural barrier. Ikkai C The Glow Dry Oil gets absorbed into the skin effortlessly, making the skin bright and super smooth. The good part is that this oil contains Kakadu Plum, one of the world’s richest sources of Vitamin C.
Oily skin- We often hear that oily skin doesn’t need moisturiser. This is a myth! Just because it produces more natural oil doesn’t mean oily skin requires any less moisture. Choose products that nourish and hydrate without clogging pores or triggering breakouts. Ikkai Mint Mojito Face Wash is an ideal cleanser for oily skin. It’s a lightweight, gentle cleanser that effectively removes dirt, excess oil, and impurities while providing your skin with the hydration it needs.
Combination skin- With the T-zone being oily and the cheeks being either dry, normal, or sensitive, this skin type is tricky. Try the lightweight and non-sticky, Ikkai C The Glow Dry Oil. It not only works well on combination skin but also is a fantastic product for acne-prone skin. It improves skin texture and gives you glowing, youthful skin. People with combination skin often have breakouts in the T-zone on the forehead, nose and chin. This one-of-a-kind facial oil will help balance and hydrate the skin.
While each skin type has its pros and cons, the goal is to have healthy, glowing, and smooth skin. Using products formulated with organic ingredients can help you achieve those goals. Ikkai products are carefully curated with organic ingredients, are free of preservatives and cruelty. If you’ve ever wondered which product to choose, the above guide will help you determine your skin type, needs, and the most suitable skincare products.
