People with dry skin lack sufficient sebum (skin oil). Their bodies, (either genetically or due to hormonal changes) do not produce sufficient oils. Since sebum protects our skin, people with dry skin also tend to have delicate, sensitive skin. Pores will be invisible, and skin may feel tight.
Skincare Suggestions:Cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser such as Pure Anada Lavender Chamomile Calming Cleanser, or the ScentLESS cleanser. Plump skin cells with the Marine Mineral Toner, and be sure to use an emollient moisturizer such as Berry & Bouquet Hydra Cream. Since a lack of sebum causes skin to age faster than usual, it may be necessary for people with dry skin to add an additional boost of oil such as our NEW Luxury Skin Care Oil. Apply the oil BEFORE your moisturizer to help with absorption. In the evening, replace your moisturizer with the REVIVE anti-aging serum.
Makeup Tips: Since loose mineral makeup does not contain moisture, it is important to moisturize your skin prior to application. If your skin begins to feel tight while applying makeup, simply mist your face again with the Marine Mineral Toner. It won’t disrupt your makeup. Or, try our tinted moisturizer for hydration and color in one step!
People with oily skin produce too much sebum (skin oil). Their skin is has a sheen to it and feels oily, or it may look dull and feel waxy. Their skin is often uneven, due to enlarged pores and may be prone to blackheads or blemishes.
Skincare Suggestions: Even though this skin type isn’t typically sensitive, it is important not to disrupt the the PH balance by using harsh cleansers. We suggest using ANY of our cleansers, including our new Lemongrass Cleanser. It is safe to use a gentle exfoliant such as our Fruit Enzyme Exfoliating Cleanser on a daily basis. Hydrate your skin with the oil-free Marine Mineral Toner.The best moisturizer for oily skin is Green Tea & Grapeseed Hydra Lotion. Ironically, grapeseed oil acts as an astringent and makes a fantastic base for makeup.
Makeup Tips: If you suffer with excessive oils, try applying Matte Minerals as either a primer underneath your foundation, or as a setting powder. The minerals in this product help to absorb excess oils and blur pores. For less shine and coverage, try our NEW Sheer Matte Pressed Foundation. It’s great for portable touch-ups.
Dehydrated skin is not to be confused with “Dry” skin, since both oily and dry skin types can suffer from dehydrated skin. Dehydrated skin cells lack water, NOT oil. It is typically characterized by dull, flaking skin. The environment or humidity in the air, can affect this aspect of our skin as well as our body’s internal hydration level. Be sure to drink enough water to give your skin a healthy glow.
Skincare Suggestion: A miracle ingredient for dehydrated skin is “Hyaluronic Acid”. Hyaluronic Acid naturally occurs in our bodies. It has the ability to hold 500-1000 times its weight in water. This helps to plump and moisturize skin cells, which makes them appear firmer, healthier and younger! Our Marine Mineral Toner, REVIVE Anti-Aging Serum, and SMOOTH plumping serum all contain this fabulous ingredient.
