Different Skin Types and Products Suitable for Each Type

Proper skin care depends on knowing your specific skin type and then choosing the right products for that type and using it in the right way.

In this article, presented by Natavis skincare experts, we talk about different skin types and the appropriate way to take care of them, so keep tuned…

Different Skin Types:

Dry Skin

Dry skin suffers from a lack of hydration and a decrease in the amount of moisturizing oils secreted by the sebaceous glands in the skin. 

Accordingly, women with dry skin feel that their skin looks rough and peels most of the time with the feeling of itching.

To care for dry skin, the skin must be replaced with the water and oils needed to restore its freshness; Meaning that your choice of skincare products should aim to restore moisture and water stores in the deeper layers of the skin.


Our advice to you is to choose moisturizing products that contain hyaluronic acid, Aquaxyl, and glycerin. Because of their superior ability to penetrate the layers of the skin and bind to water molecules and lock them inside the skin.

Oily Skin

Oily skin suffers from the excessive oily secretion secreted from the sebaceous glands in the skin so that they suffer from the appearance of acne, blackheads, large pores, and shiny skin.

Our advice to you is to stay away from any products that contain oils and choose products with a watery texture, taking care to clean the skin well at least twice a day to avoid clogging the pores and infecting them with bacteria.

Remember that the right cleanser should be gentle on the skin and does not strip it of all oils violently; so that the sebaceous glands are not stimulated to secrete more fat.

If you want an effective treatment for oily skin problems, choose a product rich in vitamin B3 that has been scientifically proven to reduce excess sebum secretions and regulate the amount of oil produced by the skin.

Combination Skin

Women with mixed skin suffer from areas of the face characterized by oily skin characteristics, such as the forehead, nose, and chin, and other places characterized by dry skin characteristics, such as cheeks and lips.

Our advice to you is to take care of the oily area with creams for the oily area, in addition to moisturizing the dry areas with products containing hyaluronic acid.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is highly affected by external factors such as weather, dust, and smoke, as well as being very sensitive to chemicals in cosmetics and skin care creams.

Therefore, our advice to you is to choose skincare products that are made of natural materials and free from any skin irritants, such as parabens, sulfates, fragrances, and preservatives.

In addition to strengthening the outer protective barrier of the skin with products containing vitamin B3 in order to strengthen your skin to tolerate irritating factors that cause irritation, redness, and the feeling of itching.

Normal Skin

Normal skin usually appears beautiful and perfect like children's skin, but neglecting to take care of it may accelerate the appearance of signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging.

Our advice to you is to pay attention to moisturizing the skin with light-textured moisturizers so that your skin does not suffer from dehydration as a result of constant exposure to external factors.

And don't forget to use products that contain the powerful antioxidant Vitamin C to protect your skin from free radicals and keep your skin healthy and fresh.

Tips for Caring for All Skin Types

After we knew the different types of skin and the most important tips related to each type, we will discuss some general tips that are suitable for all skin types, including:

  1. Pay attention to applying sunscreen daily to avoid the harmful effect of the sun's rays on the skin.
  2. Moisturizing the skin daily, whatever your skin type, just be careful to choose a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type; It should contain real moisturizers that penetrate the layers of the skin and not only moisturizers that act as a barrier on the surface of the skin against water loss.
  3. Make sure to drink enough water to moisturize the skin internally as well.
  4. Choose healthy foods rich in vegetables to provide your skin with vitamins and minerals important for its freshness.
