Which Skincare Products Compliment MY Skin Type?

Skincare can be overwhelming. There are facial oils, moisturizers, toners, cleansers, healthy aging serums, and more! Did I mention like a million different kinds that all do different things? Some of us want a simple routine while others want a more complex routine that focuses on skin goals and skin needs. Whatever it is, it’s important to invest in products that work for us. What works for one person may not always be the answer for someone else. So, the big question is: how do we know what will work for our skin? The truth is simple. Having an understanding of what you want for your skin, knowing your skin type, and being open to trial and error is it. Once that is done, looking for products that you want becomes less stressful.

If all blotting sheets are not sticking to skin, it can be determined that the skin is dry.

 

If all blotting sheets stick to the skin, it is presumed that you have oily skin.

 

If the blotting sheets stick to the T-Zone, it is probable that you have combination skin.

 

Common Characteristics of Each Skin Type

 


ReVersa Rose organically handcrafts all skincare products based on skin type, skin need, and skin goal. Let’s talk about the 6 different facial oils, 3 oil cleansers, and 3 whipped moisturizers that compliment each skin type. 

 

Facial oil: Squalane oil is a very lightweight and non greasy oil that can be used by all skin types; however, normal skin recommends products that hydrate the skin rather than stripping of its natural oil which is why squalane is a great choice. This oil works like sebum (skin oil) to prevent moisture loss and restores the skin’s soft, smooth feeling. Squalane helps protect against lipid peroxidation which can damage pores. Peroxidation plays a role in acne by changing oil composition so it becomes inflamed. 

Moisturizer: The whipped mango butter is a great choice for those that have normal skin because it is a very light moisturizer that melts into the skin. Derived from mango seeds, this butter is infused with argan, sea buckthorn, and pomegranate oil. This healthy aging butter has many benefits like eliminating dry skin, protecting the skin from UV rays, is rich in Vitamin C, A, and E that helps fight off free radicals, keeps the skin firm and wrinkle-free, and may help with acne scars, eczema, and psoriasis. 

Facial oil: Black Raspberry Seed Oil is very light and can be easily absorbed into the skin. This is also a non greasy oil. This oil protects the skin from sun damage, locks moisture into the skin, helps lower skin discoloration such as brown spots, may help heal scars and burns, has healthy aging properties, and keeps skin healthy, glowing, and soft. Black raspberry seed oil offers an impressive level of Ellagitannins also known as Ellagic Acid which is considered to be one of the most powerful classes of antioxidants, killing acne causing bacteria, rashes, rosacea, eczema, and is soothing to skin lesions. Ellagic acid also fights the collagen reduction.

Moisturizer: The whipped mango butter is a great choice for those that have dry skin because it is a very light moisturizer that melts into the skin. Derived from mango seeds, this butter is infused with argan, sea buckthorn, and pomegranate oil. This healthy aging butter has many benefits like eliminating dry skin, protecting the skin from UV rays, is rich in Vitamin C, A, and E that helps fight off free radicals, keeps the skin firm and wrinkle-free, and may help with acne scars, eczema, and psoriasis.

The whipped shea butter is a waxy based butter that is infused with rosehip, jojoba, and sweet almond oil. Because of the thickness of the shea butter, it retains the moisture in the skin for long periods of time alleviating dry, itchy, flaky skin. It has incredible anti-aging, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties making it ideal for those that have sensitive dry skin. Shea butter may help improve those that have eczema, scars, and acne.

Facial oil: Rosehip oil is a great all around face oil; however, it really caters to those that have oily skin since it is high in linoleic acid. Rosehip oil balances out the sebum (skin oil) production in the skin which may help prevent the formation of future breakouts. This oil is heavier than most and remains on the skin for longer periods of time. It helps with hyperpigmentation, skin dullness, scars and burns, and leaves the skin hydrated and glowing. 

Moisturizer: The whipped hempseed butter is an amazing moisturizer for those that have oily skin and is infused with rosehip, watermelon, and hempseed oil. This fast absorbing, non greasy butter nourishes the skin and restores any loss of moisture with its naturally present Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Hempseed has natural anti-microbial properties, is rich in vitamin A which helps with premature aging from sunlight, and can even be used to help treat acne and spots. 

Facial oil: Black Raspberry Seed Oil is very light and can be easily absorbed into the skin. This is also a non greasy oil. This oil protects the skin from sun damage, locks moisture into the skin, helps lower skin discoloration such as brown spots, may help heal scars and burns, has healthy aging properties, and keeps skin healthy, glowing, and soft. Black raspberry seed oil offers an impressive level of Ellagitannins also known as Ellagic Acid which is considered to be one of the most powerful classes of antioxidants, killing acne causing bacteria, rashes, rosacea, eczema, and is soothing to skin lesions.

Facial oil for sensitive oily skin: Watermelon seed oil is a light oil that absorbs quickly into the skin and is recommended for those that have sensitive oily skin. This oil deeply penetrates the skin, removes impurities, fights wrinkles and premature aging, reduces puffiness and promotes blood circulation, helps restore a youthful appearance, and helps fight hyperpigmentation. Watermelon Seed oil is rich in linoleic acid and helps balance the oil production in the skin which can lead to the formation of breakouts. 

Moisturizer for sensitive oily skin: The whipped hempseed butter is an amazing moisturizer for those that have oily skin and is infused with rosehip, watermelon, and hempseed oil. This fast absorbing, non greasy butter nourishes the skin and restores any loss of moisture with its naturally present Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Hempseed has natural anti-microbial properties, is rich in vitamin A which helps with premature aging from sunlight, and can even be used to help treat acne and spots. 

Facial oil for sensitive dry skin: Black Currant Seed Oil is a great oil for those that have dry, itchy, stinging skin. It is naturally high in GLA which helps reduce dryness, flakiness, redness, inflammation, and may help control breakouts. Black currant seed oil is rich in Vitamin C, improving collagen production and increasing skin elasticity.

What is an oil cleanser and which one would benefit your skin?

Unlike traditional water based cleansers, oil cleansers are magnets to other oils such as dirt, debris, bacteria, makeup, whiteheads/blackheads, sebum (skin oil), and clogged pores. Any impurities that lie under the skin (even the ones that we cannot see) will eventually come to the surface and purge. To pull sebaceous filaments, massage the oil into the skin for at least 10-20 minutes and be amazed by the grossly satisfying extractions you see and feel come out of your skin. Oil cleansers do not strip the skin of its natural oils or leave the skin in dry, rough patches but instead leave it soft, hydrated, and cleansed. Different oils compliment different skin types. ReVersa Rose offers 3.
