STEP 1

Find your skin type.

  • Dry skin
  • Oily skin
  • Combination skin
  • Sensitive skin
What it is : Dry skin is when your skin produces less oil than necessary.

Reasons:

  • Genetics: You could be naturally born with drier skin.
  • Age: As you get older, your skin naturally produces less sebum leading to drier skin.
  • Weather: Extremely cold or extremely hot climates have less humidity, which can lead to your skin drying out.
  • Diseases: Eczema, Psoriasis, and Diabetes can cause skin to become extremely dry.
  • Medication: You could be experiencing dryness due to side effects of a newly started medication
  • Skincare products: Your products could be causing irritation, dryness, and itchiness.

Signs that you have dry skin:

  • Your skin feels tight especially after washing your face
  • Your skin feels rough
  • You notice dry patches, flaking, scaling, or peeling
  • Your skin feels itchy, red, and/or irritated.

STEP 2

Determine your skin concern(s)

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Body Acne
  • Dull skin
  • Fine Lines/Wrinkles
  • Face Acne
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Blackheads
What it is : Excess pigmentation that happens in spots or patches on your skin.

Reasons:

  • Inflammation: Acne, burns, inflammation increases your risk of hyperpigmentation
  • UV exposure: Your body produces more melanin (dark pigment) to protect the skin from sun exposure
  • Hormones: During pregnancy, certain hormones increases your risk of hyperpigmentation
  • Genetics: Darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation
  • Medication: Anti-malaria drugs, anti-depressants, and other medications can cause hyperpigmentation

Signs that you have hyperpigmentation:

  • Spots on your skin that are darker than your natural skin tone
  • Patches on your skin that are darker than your natural skin tone

Tips:

  • Wear sunscreen every single day and reapply every 3-4 hours.
  • Wear wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, and protective clothing
  • Don’t pick at your acne. This can cause inflammation, which then causes hyperpigmentation
