3 Types of Skin: Our Product Recommendations

*Disclaimer: The recommendations and suggestions below are our general opinion. Please consult your doctor or dermatologist for your specific skin types and needs.*

Dry or Sun-Damaged Skin:

You should use products that moisturize or contain hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that draws moisture into the skin. Try any of the DERMAL masks, but I recommend the DERMAL Hyalourate Collagen Essence Mask Sheet! Remember to apply sunscreen before you go out!

Look into products that contain ceramides and niacinamide (Vitamin B3). You might benefit by using products that contain retinol or antioxidants that help repair blotchy skin at nighttime as well.

Regular, Sensitive or Combination (part oily, part dry) Skin:

You should not use a cleanser because it can dry out your skin; however, if you do use one, make sure it's very mild. Make sure to apply a sunscreen before going out, I suggest at least SPF30.

Before going to bed, you can apply a gentle moisturizing face mask sheet that does not contain alcohol. For regular or combination skin, I recommend any of the  CLEARDERM Essence Mask Sheets.

For sensitive skin, I recommend the 12 precious herbal face mask sheets, Bidanpo Mediental or the dermatologist tested Beauty Clinic masks. People with sensitive skin seem to always have to pay a bit more for their skin care products.

I know I would buy the dermatologist tested products if my skin needed it! (^_^)

Oily Skin: 

You should have a good cleanser that you use often, maybe 3-5 times a week. Look for cleansers that have glycolic or salicylic acid. Make sure you use an "oil-free" type of sunscreen.

Night time cleansing is a must because your skin has been exposed all day and has probably gotten more oily. For oily skin, I recommend exfoliating by using peel-off masks like the Cucumber Deep Cleansing Peel-Off Mask or the Green Tea Deep Cleansing Peel-Off Mask.

Your nighttime regime should include a wash-off mask at least 3-4 times a week like the Skin Brightening Natural Pearl Mask, Anti-Stress Heat Therapy Oatmeal Mask, Strawberry Skin Softening Yogurt Mask or the Hydro Soothing Aloe Wash-Off Mask.
