Which active ingredients to use according to your skin type?
We can never say it enough, the first essential step to take care of your face is cleaning the skin. As you can imagine, throughout the day, the skin is subjected to numerous external aggressions such as pollution, dust, heating and many other impurities. Also, it is essential to cleanse your face in the evening to allow your skin to breathe better during the night.
Each skin type has different needs
Dehydrated skin will need hydration, because it lacks water and presents occasional tightness sensations, redness as well as fine lines of dryness at the corners of the eyes. This concerns all skin types, even oily skin, and yes!
While dry skin needs "fat". They are characterized in particular by feelings of continuous tightness, irritation and a dull appearance. And even if all skin types do not need nutrition, they all need daily hydration, that's the basics!
Which active ingredients according to your skin type?
We often get lost in the list of ingredients present in our products, their benefits, when to use them... Don't panic! Here is a short recap of the active ingredients to use according to your skin's needs.
Dehydrated skin does not retain enough water and will therefore need water, moisturizing or humectant active ingredients such as glycerin, aloe vera or hyaluronic acid which make it possible to capture water and retain it in the skin.
Lack of nutrition is a lack of lipids, fats. Dry skin does not produce enough sebum to maintain its barrier function and will need emollients such as vegetable oils and butters to nourish it. And contrary to what one might think, the oil does not moisturize! It forms a protective barrier on the skin to prevent dehydration.
At Hygée, we particularly like the Yodi brand with which we share many points in common:
- Yodi innovates like Hygée by using powders of active ingredients. Vegan formulas without water, without preservatives or additives and minimalist care to keep only the essentials. The powder then turns into a foam in the shower for shampoos, or a foaming milk for face cleansers.
- Particular attention to the ecological impact thanks to the saving of water and plastic
- Products without controversial ingredients
Let's talk little, let's talk about skin
Which cleansers to choose according to your skin type?
For oily skin, the Purifying Charcoal will be your best friend and will deeply cleanse your little redness and imperfections.
For combination skin, the Vitamin C and Hibiscus Flowers cleanser will give your skin a boost of radiance and hydrate it just enough.
If your skin is rather dry, the Trio of oils powder cleanser will bring softness and hydration to your skin. It is also perfect for removing make-up.
And of course, our La Beauté formula, ideal for counterbalancing the harmful effects of stress and fatigue on the skin. It illuminates the complexion and fights against skin aging.
As you will have understood, nourishing and moisturizing your skin ensures its good health. The most important thing is to know how to choose and adapt a solution according to the type of skin you have.
