Which Moisturizer is Best for Your Skin Type?

Here at Colibri Day Spa & Beauty Shop, we pamper your body and spirit with a wide range of products and services. One of our popular product lines is our extensive selection of skin moisturizers. But unlike mass-merchandised products, there are particular moisturizers best suited for each specific skin type. How can you determine the best moisturizer for you? Let’s first look at different skin types:

Sensitive Skin

If your skin appears delicate or translucent, has redness or soreness tending toward rosacea, or has burning or itching sensations, you probably suffer from sensitive skin. This type of skin has a very thin lipid barrier to protect it from external irritants. It may also be over-sensitized resulting in the burning or itchiness.

Dehydrated or Dry Skin

Although similar in the way they feel, dehydrated skin refers to a lack of moisture while dry skin lacks oil. Both exhibit symptoms including dryness or flaking skin, itchiness, tight or dull-appearing skin, or skin that absorbs any moisturizer very quickly.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is exactly that, skin that releases too much oil. The causes are many including your genetic makeup, environmental effects, or hormonal balance. Oily skin will appear shiny, pores can be enlarged, and the skin feels greasy.

Aging Skin

All skin ages over time, but some people show greater effects of age. Signs of aging skin include dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin looseness, dullness, and a crepe-like skin texture.

Skin Prone to Breakouts

Some people have skin that suffers from chronic breakouts. The causes are uncertain but can include environmental pollutants, diet, genetics, stress, or hormones. Symptoms include red or inflamed bumps, uneven skin texture, excess skin oils, and even scars from previous breakouts.

Combination Skin

It may seem impossible to have skin that suffers from combinations of symptoms, but it happens and usually consists of areas that are dry combined with oily areas. Your cheeks and areas under the eyes can be dry while your forehead and nose are oily. Combination skin also exhibits oiliness in hot weather and dryness in cool weather.
