It seems that because there are only four different skin types, no woman will be confused about how to care for her. But this is not the case. For example, many people mistake dehydrated skin for dry skin.

That’s why we want to share with you the recommendations of these beauticians to help you take care of your skin once and for all.

Combination Skin

Different Skin Types And How To Take Care Of Them

Use different products for different skin areas: oily skin needs pre-drying products and dry areas need nutrition and hydration.

Avoid tonics that contain alcohol: It is better to use tonics with AHA or salicylic acid.

Try using products that contain glycolic acid: They help remove oil from the skin, help exfoliate, and also accelerate cell generation.

If the skin in oily areas has a tendency to become inflamed, use products that contain retinoids. They work well against acne and also have collagen-generating properties.

Dry Skin

Different Skin Types And How To Take Care Of Them

The basis for caring for dry skin is moisturizing and nourishing.

  • Do not use soap, scourers, or exfoliating masks, especially clay-based ones.
  • Use creams with a greasy base. Apply any heavy cream to the skin 1 to 2 hours before bed and wipe off the excess before bed with a tissue.
  • Do not bathe more than once a day.
  • Use a humidifier; your home should be kept relatively cool.

Greasy Skin

Different Skin Types And How To Take Care Of Them

Greasy Skin requires special attention and meticulous care.

Do not touch your face with your hands.

Wash with cold water no more than twice a day or when you are very sweaty. Do not wash with hot water, as this makes the sebaceous glands even more active.

Avoid using alcohol-based toners, as they dry out the skin and react by increasing the amount of oil they secrete. It is better to use tonics with AHA or salicylic acid.

Don’t get carried away with toning creams and powders – they block pores and cause inflammation.

Look for the word “non-medicinal” on the packaging. This indicates that the product will not clog your pores.

Use products with a light texture, such as lotions or gels. Those with thicker textures can make your skin oilier or block your pores.

If you have acne, use a product that contains retinoids and also those with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. They should be applied to the entire face.

How To Look After Any Kind Of Skin


Cleaning products can contain chemicals that can destroy the skin’s lipid barrier. The result is that it stops retaining moisture. Avoid buying products that contain the following:

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS);
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLES);
  • Sodium Mirete Sulfate (SMS);
  • Mineral oil.

Micellar water sometimes contains a small number of preservatives and surfactants. Therefore, regardless of what is recommended on the packaging, the micellar water must be washed off.


The toner neutralizes the activity of cleaning products, normalizes the pH after washing with strong tap water and prepares the skin for the application of moisturizing products.

It’s a good idea to use a toner that can be applied in a spray so as not to stretch the skin.

You can also use bottled mineral water in place of a tonic, but avoid using it if the bottle has been open for more than three days.

How To Get Rid Of Blackheads

There are many reasons why blackheads appear on the skin. It may be due to oily skin, blocked oil gland ducts, a buildup of dust and dirt in your pores, and even because you are using the wrong cream for your skin. You can get rid of them using one of the following methods:

Egg white. Apply a thick layer of egg white to your face and press a cotton pad or cosmetic cloth over it. Wait for the egg white to dry completely, and remove with the tissue, applying sharp movements. Then rinse with cold water.

White clay. White clay can be purchased in powder form at the pharmacy. Mix with water and apply to problem areas of the skin, avoiding eyes and lips. Keep the mask on for 15 minutes.

Fermented milk. A mask made from fermented milk works for oily and combination skin. Keeping the mask for 20 minutes will be enough to significantly improve the condition of your skin.
