What's your skin type?

We all have a specific skin type that can be difficult to define as it changes over time according to age, hormones and other external elements such as climate, temperature, heating, pollution and lifestyle...

But to choose the right cosmetic products, we do need to define our skin type. Is your skin more dry, oily, combination or sensitive?

  • Dry skin: This skin type is often fine and beautiful with no dilated pores, but is also source of discomfort and can feel taut. Reasons for dry skin are multiple. The outermost layer of skin lacks water, the surface hydrolipidic film is too thin and does not protect the skin, there can be a lack of sebum, etc. Caring for dry skin will give you more information...
  • Oily skin: This skin type is of thicker texture with dilated pores and generally looks dull, oily and shiny. Oily skin has a tendency to spots and blackheads, permanent excessive sebum levels cause the outer skin layer to thicken in the long term. This skin type can be both oily and lack water, in other words dehydrated. Caring for oily skin will give you more information...
  • Combination skin: Dry where sebaceous glands are rare (temples, cheekbones and jawbone), it becomes oily in the "T zone" (forehead, nose and chin). It can be difficult to choose the right cosmetics for this skin type. Caring for combination skin will give you more information...
  • Sensitive skin: 20% of women have a real problem with sensitive skin and 40% frequently suffer with skin discomfort and feelings of tautness. Dry, oily or combination, all skin types can be sensitive. This can mean untimely red blotches and prickling or burning sensations. Caring for sensitive skin will give you more information...
  • Darker skin: Dark skin reacts badly to temperate climates. This skin type therefore suffers from dryness, is more sensitive and rougher and needs maximum moisturising care. Caring for darker skin will give you more information...
