Skin Type | Sensitive Skin | What Skin Type Am I

By Skin Type

No-one knows the answer to ‘what skin type am I’ better than you.  We are all individuals and our skin type can vary according to the seasons and state of health, but here is a simple skin type check list to help you quickly identify which category the skin on your face belongs to at any point:  

Dry / dehydrated - Fine texture with no visible pores. Feels taut after contact with water.

Sensitive – Easily irritated or inflamed, allergic tendency, often itchy, red or flaky.

Mature – Lined, loss of firmness, becoming drier.

Combination - Enlarged pores, shiny or oily central T-zone, drier on cheeks, prone to spots.

Oily - Enlarged pores, shiny or oily T-zone, prone to acne or spots.

Normal – Balanced, supple skin, no excess sebum and very few enlarged pores

Don’t worry if there is some overlap and your skin is dry and mature or combination and sensitive. The beauty of our multi-tasking organic skin care is that it has been expertly formulated to ensure that the gentle, active plant ingredients work together to normalise skin function as well as addressing sensitivity and signs of ageing.  For example, Timeless Rose Moisturiser, is a light, antioxidant cream ideal for all skin types and is a great eye care cream to help diminish fine lines too.  

Over the years we have also formulated ‘special care’ products to meet the challenge of particular skin problems. For specific problem skin needs, please have a look at the Skin Concerns option on the menu bar.
