Dry Skin: Quenching the Thirst
If your skin often feels tight, flaky, or lacks moisture, you may have dry skin. Here's how to care for it:
Gentle Cleansers: Opt for creamy or oil-based cleansers that cleanse without stripping away natural oils. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides to lock in moisture.
Nourishing Moisturisers: Choose rich, hydrating moisturisers that provide long-lasting moisture. Look for ingredients like shea butter and plant oils to replenish and soothe dry skin.
Yendy Product Recommendation: Super Shea Moisturiser - a luxurious moisturiser infused with botanical extracts and hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and revitalise dry skin.
Oily Skin: Balance is Key
If your skin tends to be shiny, with visible pores and a tendency for breakouts, you likely have oily skin. Here's how to keep it in balance:
Oil-Control Cleansers: Look for foaming or gel cleansers that help remove excess oil and unclog pores. Ingredients like salicylic acid or tea tree oil can be beneficial for oily skin.
Lightweight Moisturisers: Opt for oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturisers that provide hydration without adding extra oil to the skin. Look for ingredients like niacinamide or hyaluronic acid.
Yendy Product Recommendation: Antioxidant Power Serum - a lightweight serum enriched with pore-minimising ingredients and African Superfoods to promote a balanced complexion.
Combination Skin: Balancing Act
If you have areas of both dryness and oiliness, you likely have combination skin. Here's how to address its unique needs:
Combination Cleansers: Use mild, pH-balanced cleansers that remove impurities without stripping the skin. Look for gentle exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to address dry patches.
Dual-Action Moisturisers: Seek lightweight moisturisers that provide hydration for dry areas while controlling excess oil in the T-zone. Look for ingredients like jojoba oil or glycerin.
Yendy Product Recommendation: Superpower Duo - a multitasking duo that hydrates the skin and contains non-comedogenic ingredients, leaving your skin perfectly balanced.
Sensitive Skin: Gentle Care
If your skin often reacts to new products or environmental factors with redness, irritation, or itchiness, you likely have sensitive skin. Here's how to soothe and protect it:
Fragrance-Free Cleansers: Opt for gentle, fragrance-free cleansers that won't trigger irritation. Look for formulas specifically designed for sensitive skin.
Calming Moisturisers: Choose moisturisers with soothing ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile, or colloidal oatmeal. Avoid products with potential irritants such as alcohol or artificial fragrances.
Yendy Product Recommendation: Super Shea Moisturiser - a fragrance-free, hydrating moisturiser which is enriched with natural botanicals and anti-inflammatory ingredients to provide comfort and relief for sensitive skin.
