The daily life of your skin

The skin is your largest organ. It covers the whole body - and its mission is a lot more complicated than you can ever imagine. It protects you from unhealthy microbes and harmful elements that surround you everywhere, helps control the temperature of your body, and thanks to your skin you can touch and feel.

You feel hot and the cold, the sun and the wind, the snow and the rain through our skin. And your skin is completely exposed to the environment and its changes - literally 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Moreover, your skin is affected not only by the surrounding environment but also by your inner and outer well-being. Yes, your skin bears the consequences of all your health issues and your emotional vibrations. Different conditions may not appear at once, but when they do, you know you should seek the roots in yourself. Stressful situations, overeating or malnutrition, not drinking enough water, consuming too much alcohol or coffee, wearing the same face masks for too long… you can continue the list yourself.

Understanding your skin

To minimize your skin health challenges, you need a well-developed skincare routine with pure products. Good skincare will solve your existing problems and prevent upcoming ones - this is what you have to keep in mind when buying products to put on your skin. It is necessary to establish a strong connection with your own skin - concentrating on what you feel you need, what and how your skin feels, when, and what kind of condition it has.

Well, it is not a task for a day or two - it takes a lot longer than one can think. It took us months and years to start listening to our bodies, to check how the skin reacts to a particular product and ingredient, to a specific situation or an environment change, to a health issue or an emotional shift.

To start understanding your skin performance, a good knowledge of skin types is needed first. Usually, your skin type is determined by your genetics. But your skin may have a mixed type or it may change throughout time, and you will have to modify your routine as needed. What is more important, your skin can be very individual and have special conditions and react in a very unique way. That is why it is always better to construct an individual skincare routine with products that will work for you best. That’s how we think at BBA organic - we ourselves never use products that are just famous, or maybe prescribed to others. Moreover, that’s why we have developed products that will work for many people without hurting their health. Just natural, mild, well-formulated skincare for the sake of your real beauty.

Skin types and their performance

So let’s start discovering the main skin types and their performance.

Normal skin

People with normal skin are God’s favorite. Okay, just joking. Normal skin type produces no excess oil but it is not too dry as well. It does not feel itchy usually, there are no blemishes and imperfections on it (or they appear rarely). The normal skin has almost invisible pores, the skin overall is glowing and is not sensitive in general. It is elastic and relatively well-hydrated.

Dry skin

Dry skin, just like the normal type, has no visible pores. But it is less elastic, fine lines are more visible than on other types. Some parts of dry skin may look red and inflamed. It looks dull, has a lack of healthy shine, can crack, itch, become irritated, peel, and become rough, especially on your body. Dry skin is sensitive to weather and UV light, hot baths, aggressive ingredients contained in your skincare, and even some medication.

Oily skin

People with oily skin are usually more prone to blemishes, blackheads, and pimples. Oily skin has enlarged pores and they are more visible than in the case of other types, and they can be clogged easily. Oily skin can change because of the time of the year or the climate/weather. It is more sensitive to hormonal imbalance. Oily skin also can get worse because of high humidity levels or too much heat. Stress affects this skin type the most.

Combination skin

Combination skin name talks about itself: it is a mix of dry or normal skin with oily type. The most common description of a combination skin type is that it is oily in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and normal or even dry in the remaining areas. It mainly looks like oily skin - it has blackheads and pimples on the oily parts, the pores are visible as they are open more than in the case of the normal type, and it has an oily shine. The difference between oily and combination skin types is that the combination type may require separate care for different areas.

Actually, there is a skin condition - sensitivity. Although some specialists are used to classify sensitive skin as a skin type, others classify it as a skin condition that can appear in all skin types. For example, many people have dry and sensitive skin, but some have oily and sensitive skin at the same time. Sensitive skin has redness, it may be itching, and it reacts easily to any trigger. It can respond with dryness, burning, and else how to climate change, a specific product, health issue, food, etc.

Skin type test

Now you may want to check your skin type. It is as easy as ABC. Now go to the bathroom and take your face cleansing foam or gel. Make sure it does not contain any harsh and aggressive ingredients. Wash your face with it and dry with a clean cloth or face wipes. Don’t apply any skincare product on your face and wait for about an hour. What do you feel? Does it feel greasy or tight and dry? Are there flakes on it? Or maybe it feels very comfortable?

  • If your skin feels comfortable and you notice no excess oil and grease on it, and it does not itch or does not feel tight, then you have a normal skin type. You can put a blotting paper to double-check, and the blotting paper will fall easily.

  • If your skin feels dry and tight, and the blotting paper does not stick to any part of your face, then you have dry skin. If your skin is extremely dry and dehydrated, you may notice flakes and lines on it. It may even itch slightly.

  • If your skin looks oily and shiny, then you most possibly have oily skin. You can check with a blotting paper as well. Put a piece of blotting paper on your skin. If the paper sticks to all areas of your face, then it is oily. It will look greasy after putting it all over your face.

  • If it sticks to the T-zone only (your forehead, nose, and chin) then you most possibly have combination skin. In the case of combination skin, you may even notice some dryness on the C-zone of your face (the jawline, near your mouth and cheeks).
