It may seem that so-called “normal” skin is easy to care for, but that’s not always the case. If you have normal skin, that doesn’t mean you don’t have skincare challenges. It simply means you need to choose the right skincare products and the right skincare routine for your skin’s unique needs.
What is “Normal” Skin?
It’s hard to say what normal skin is, because it’s actually categorized by what it’s not. Skin that is normally neither excessively oily nor excessively dry is categorized as normal. But this doesn’t mean that normal skin has no challenges.
People with normal skin still face problems like blemishes, as well as occasional bouts of oiliness or dryness. Additionally, those with normal skin still need to worry about UV exposure, hormonal changes, and other skin stressors. Using the wrong skincare products can exacerbate these issues, so it’s important to evaluate your skincare routine carefully.
Avoid Harsh Irritants
Far too many skincare products on the market today contain harmful ingredients that can cause problems no matter your skin type. Ingredients such as artificial fragrances, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates can do more harm than good when used routinely. Avya Skincare takes a holistic approach to skincare, carefully formulating each product with wholesome, beneficial ingredients designed to promote skin health and improve appearance.
Using the wrong cleanser can severely damage your skin’s balance, it can become oily, dry, or even a combination of the two. Look for a non-foaming cleanser for your face that will gently remove impurities without disrupting your skin’s delicate balance.
Avya Gentle Cleanser is an excellent choice. It can help unclog pores and control blemishes while evening skin tone and brightening your complexion as well. Best of all, this cleanser is the perfect way to prep your face for the other products in your skincare routine.
Some may think that only people with dry skin need to apply a moisturizer regularly, but this isn’t so. Everyone should moisturize their skin routinely to keep it healthy and fresh. Once again, balance is key. You want a product that moisturizes without being greasy or oily, with gentle ingredients that won’t disrupt your skin’s natural processes.
Be sure to use a separate day and night moisturizer for best results. Your daytime moisturizer should be a lighter formula, preferably with SPF included. At night, you want a thicker cream that will help restore your skin as you sleep.
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
We mentioned SPF above, but it bears more discussion. Years ago, it was common to only wear sunscreen or worry about sun protection when spending a full day in the sun. We bought SPF only for the beach or the pool, not considering it as part of our daily routine. Today, we know better.
Sun protection should be a concern every day, regardless of the weather or your length of exposure. Sun exposure is cumulative and extremely damaging to your skin, causing premature aging and even cancer. Fight the effects of harmful UV rays by including an SPF in your daily skincare routine.
Care for Your Eyes and Lips
Certain areas of your skin require special treatment. Consider a separate product for your eyes and one for your lips too. This will help keep these unique areas healthy and youthful.
Our Eye Bright Cream is a perfect choice for brightening, smoothing, lifting, and hydrating the extremely delicate skin around your eyes. It’s designed to leave you looking youthful and refreshed, no matter how well you slept last night. It can even reduce the appearance of puffiness or dark circles.
Likewise, our Two-in-One Lip Treatment cares for your lips for a smooth, healthy appearance. It features a sugar scrub and a hydrating balm, all rolled into one elegant package. Both products feature natural ingredients like marula seed oil and mango butter as well as advanced ingredients like antioxidants and vitamin E to protect and nourish.
The most important consideration when choosing a skincare routine is whether the ingredients contained are beneficial or harmful in the long run. Some products look and smell great, but cause damage to skin or leave it unprotected. Instead, choose an Ayurvedic skin care company such as Avya Skincare. We carefully formulate each product for balance, efficacy, and health so you never have to worry about harmful or damaging ingredients creeping into your daily routine.
