The Best Skin Care Routine for Normal Skin Type

Normal skin describes near-perfect skin with no visible imperfections.

Normal skin is as elusive as unicorns.

Flawless, dewy, and wrinkle-free, one can certainly dream.

So much so it has to be asked if there is such a thing as normal skin.

You see, normal skin is scarce unless you are a newborn baby.

It is unusual for an adult to have perfectly balanced skin.

That’s right, normal skin is the exception, not the rule.

So join us as we unravel this unusual skin type.

The normal skin test

  • your skin has never seen a pimple or breakout
  • your skin constantly maintains a healthy glow
  • your skin is naturally moisturised, neither too oily nor too dry
  • you don’t have the slightest hint of hyperpigmentation or sun damage
  • the little bit of oiliness or dryness you do experience is rare and quickly resolved
  • your pores are not invisible, but they’re not enlarged or obvious either
  • there are no signs of premature ageing; you think crow’s feet are something that birds have
  • the term “Oily T-Zone” means nothing to you; you’ve never seen a blackhead or whitehead
  • you never have to blot your skin or touch it up with powder, and you think the daily shine is something the sun does

If you have answered no to any of these questions, congratulations, you have hit the GENETIC JACKPOT.

What is normal skin?

Normal skin is when someone presents with no dry or oily areas and very few imperfections, such as visible pores, breakouts, clogged pores, fine lines, brown spots, and eczema.

So you can see why it is as rare as a hen’s teeth.

Normal skin has a smooth, balanced texture, and the collagen and elastin are strong, making the skin firm and youthful.

Besides, sebum (oil) production, moisture content, desquamation, keratinisation and pH are well-balanced, which makes the skin healthy,

If you are blessed with normal skin, you will notice that it changes as you age. Sun, hormones, lifestyle and environmental toxins all play a factor in cutaneous changes.

Products targeted for normal skin

When skincare companies market their products for “normal” skin types, they generally direct them to those people who meet a few of the specific criteria.

They are for those who have absolutely no breakouts, no sensitivity, and those who are lucky enough to have no oily shine or visible pores and balanced hydration.

Their skin types rarely feel oily or dehydrated, seldom break out, and their skincare maintenance is minimalistic.

Ageing alters normal skin.

Our skin starts to change in our mid to late thirties, and any damage done in our twenties begins to show in the skin from thirty plus. The skin becomes drier and thinner as natural ingredients within the skin, like ceramides, lipids, cholesterol, urea, and hyaluronic acid, start to deplete;

It’s why we use many skin-identical ingredients in our formulas to replenish the skin.

How to care for normal skin

Most skincare advice revolves around attempting to fix, minimise, or control whatever skin type or concern you’re struggling with.

But if you’re one of those lucky people with genuinely normal skin, meaning no apparent skin concerns or problematic skin type to address, it’s not ideal to ditch your skincare routine altogether.

We recommend taking precautionary measures to avoid potential skin-related problems and premature ageing.

The balance of oil and water in the skin is the ultimate goal for healthy, youthful-looking skin. If you are lucky enough to have normal skin, it is important to preserve its water content and maintain hydration. Sodium Hyaluronate can hold up to 10 times its weight in water and helps prevent water loss.

H2O hydrating skin shot can help to preserve the tissue’s moisture content.

Ideally, it would be best to moisturise regularly; Fortify Barrier Repair Cream and Barrier Repair Balm contain the perfect balance of ceramides, cholesterol, and lipids naturally found within your skin.

Xcell skin shot is an effective anti-oxidant; it helps repair the damage caused by free radicals while improving dull, depleted complexions.

Yes normal skin is rarely something you see in adults, it’s never as youthful as a babies, just goes to show what daily wear and tear dopes to our skin!
