It can be really, truly difficult to find skincare which suits our individual complexions. While one person my rave about one moisturiser, another may hate it. It’s difficult to go off recommendations from friends when it comes to skincare because everyone’s skin has different issues, problems and needs.
Trying to find the right skincare for you can go on for years, and just as soon as you think you’ve cracked it, your skin changes due to age, the seasons, hormones, illness or sometimes for no apparent reason whatsoever. our beloved skincare doesn’t do the job anymore and you’re back to square one.
However, trying to find skincare which your complexion will love needn’t be so tricky. The key is to look out for ingredients which your skin type is known to tolerate, and benefit from.
Busting the confusion out of knowing which skincare ingredients are ideal for your skin is the fabulous and informative Caroline Hirons. Her recent post ‘Quick grab – What to look out for depending on your skin issue’ is worth studying. Commit the ingredients for your skin type to memory and looks for skincare which ticks all the boxes. Perfect.
You will notice that there are a few common ingredients which any skin type should ignore or use. Nourishing oils which don’t clog the pores can work for everyone – almond oil and jojoba oil are fantastic at taking care of the skin without causing it any issues, providing you don’t have nut allergies. Glycerin is perfect for practically everyone – it moisturises the skin better than most ingredients, and protects it from drying out in future. Then of course there are the ingredients to avoid – namely alcohol which is drying, dehydrating and ageing. Menthol and camphor are also bad news for the majority of skin types as they are so strong.
