Dynamic Duos (For Your Skin Type!)

Trying to figure out your skin type can be as confusing as knowing what products you should use for them. After all, the terms “lotion” and “cream” sound like they’d do the same thing right? Plus, when you throw multitasking products into the mix, it can get even more hectic. To help simplify your skin types, we’ve broken down what you need and rounded up two products from Althea that'll help elevate your skincare game!

Normal Skin
If you’ve been blessed by the skin gods and have generally trouble-free skin, we’re absolutely jealous of you but also want to know what sacrificial ritual you did to get it. Just kidding! Ensure it stays that way by keeping your skin looking radiant and healthy with some light hydrating products.

We love: Innerface Water Fresh Emulsion and Angel Factory Salt Mist

Dehydrated Skin
Seeing flakes that aren’t snow? Your skin might be dried out and feel a little more easily agitated than you like. It probably just needs some hydration to plump it back up, like you need a tall glass of water to quench some thirst now and again. Pick products that are water-based to balance out the water-to-oil ratio of the skin without it feeling too greasy and sticky throughout the day.

We love: It's Skin Power 10 Formula GF Effector and Primera Alpine Berry Watery Cream

Acne Prone/ Oily Skin

Being acne prone means your skin is sensitive and regularly irritated, so stay away from super oily or products have include harsh ingredients. Instead, look for soothing and calming products that control sebum overproduction as well for a balanced, healthy complexion.

We love: Mizon Acence Derma Clearing Toner and Aromatica Tea Tree 53 Blemish Spot

Aging Skin
As much as we love the experiences and knowledge we gain with age, the last thing we want is to look old, am I right? Plump up those wrinkles and fine lines, as well as keep an exfoliator handy to remove dead skin cells. This will help promote skin renewal and keep that radiant, youthful glow on point.

We love: Monstory Cool Cool Mon Slow-Aging Sleeping Mask and Missha Immortal Youth Cream

Dull Skin
Skin full of pigmentation spots and looking a little lackluster? The solution is to exfoliate and use good, brightening products that’ll give you a lively and luminous complexion. Products that use a gentle acid helps to remove dead skin cells using an enzymic reaction, purifying the skin without the worry of micro scratches.

We love: Onsaemeein Yogurt Peeling and Dr. Jart+ V7 Toning Light
