The Best Skin Care Routine for Normal Skin Type

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 it changes as you age. Sun, hormones, lifestyle and environmental toxins all contribute to cutaneous changes.

Products for Normal Skin

When skincare companies market their products for “normal” skin types, they generally target people who meet a few specific criteria.

They are for those with no breakouts or sensitivity and those 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;

We use many skin-identical ingredients in our formulas to replenish the skin.

Caring for Normal Skin

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

But suppose you’re one of those lucky people with genuinely normal skin, meaning no apparent skin concerns or problematic skin type to address. In that case, ditching your skincare routine altogether is not ideal.

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, preserving its water content and maintaining hydration is essential. 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.

To conclude. The naked truth

In the quest for flawless skin, “normal” skin often feels like a mythological creature, as rare as unicorns. Yet, for those fortunate few who possess it, the journey is one of preservation rather than correction.

Normal skin, with its balanced texture and minimal imperfections, requires gentle care and vigilance against potential environmental and age-related changes.

As we navigate the complexities of skin care, let us celebrate the beauty of normalcy, embracing the uniqueness of each skin type and cherishing the radiant glow.

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!
