What is normal skin?
What’s ironic about the term “normal skin” is that it’s actually one of the rarest skin types out there. For this reason, it’s also called “balanced skin”, as the expression simply refers to skin that’s neither too dry nor oily. In other words: Normal skin is skin that doesn’t crave excess remedies, but still can benefit from enriching products that preserve, protect, and strengthen it. And remember: The purpose of a skincare routine isn’t solely to treat, but also to prevent so the skin stays resilient, healthy, and vibrant – and preventing is always easier than treating.
How do I treat normal skin?
Though normal skin is often genetic, this skin type can still be affected by factors such as stress, sun exposure, or using the wrong products, which can ultimately disrupt its balance and lead to skin concerns and damage. Therefore, a few simple yet effective products can go a long way in a routine for normal skin. A gentle, natural cleanser to remove build-up, harmful bacteria, and unwanted debris. An active, vitamin-rich serum to strengthen the skin’s natural defenses plus a nourishing moisturizer to keep the skin’s moisture balance intact while ensuring a soft and supple surface. A weekly mask to revitalize your skin and leave it glowy. And last, but definitely not least: SPF to seal the routine and keep the skin protected from harming UV rays. With these wonderworkers, you’re good to go. Of course, you can supplement your routine with other indulging products that can provide your skin with a boost when needed, but with this routine, you’re sure your skin’s needs are fulfilled, thereby ensuring it stays healthy and balanced.
Go-to ingredients for normal skin
Lots of ingredients can benefit normal skin: Niacinamide to help preserve its balance, hyaluronic acid for an instant and long-term moisture boost, and vitamin C for keeping it protected against aging accelerators. However, what’s most essential is to make sure your products’ ingredient lists are dominated by natural, organic, and safe ingredients that won’t disturb your skin’s barrier, oil production, or environment to make sure you won’t compromise its balance. Therefore, we’d, as always, advise you to be mindful of synthetic perfumes, harsh chemicals, and concentrations, when choosing your products.
