WHAT IS NORMAL SKIN?
What is Normal Skin? Skin types are largely determined by genetics, but 90% of how the skin ages is within our control. Normal skin, or eudermic (medical term for healthy skin), is the ideal skin type and is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin. Overall, sebum and moisture are balanced and the skin is neither too oily nor too dry. Skincare routines are done to support the skin rather than “combat” a problem.
SOME TYPICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF NORMAL SKIN
The scientific name for well-balanced skin, is eudermic. Factors that affect skin health, like moisture content and sebum production, are well regulated by the body and supported by the right skincare.
Fine pores, a smooth and even texture, no chronic blemishes, and it is not prone to sensitivity and inflammation like other skin types. The skin is neither too oily nor too dry and can look "rosy" and radiant.
It’s no longer a secret that good skin reflects a healthy gut – and there's scientific evidence to back it up. Healthy skin can be a reflection of a healthy lifestyle, environment, and proper skincare routine.
Although the skin is free of noticeable problems, maintaining a skincare regime that includes moisturizing, regular cleansing, and preventative skincare treatments is important.
HOW TO CARE FOR NORMAL SKIN
1. Preserve moisture
With the proper skin care routine, diet and lifestyle, our body’s processes and hormones that affect the skin can remain balanced and healthy.
4. Avoid overexposure
& skin damage
Wearing a good, natural sunscreen to protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays can be helpful. The sun's rays are strongest between 10 am and 2 pm so it's best to be mindful of how much direct sunlight your skin receives.
2. Promote well-aging
From the age of 25 onwards, the dermis and epidermis begin to slowly change structure so it’s recommended to integrate skincare that helps the skin age in a healthy way.
Taking time out in nature and taking a break from the daily hustle and grind is a great way to nourish your skin, soul, and mind.
5. Wash your face
Even normal skin isn’t impenetrable. Make-up residue and environmental particles can lead to inflamed pores. It’s important to support a healthy balance with facial cleansing and the right skin care ritual.
6. Maintain a healthy
diet & lifestyle
Making the right choices inside and out is key to good skin. We can recommend not only applying skincare topically, but integrating our Adaptogen Drinks as part of your daily ritual.
