6 Tips for Treating Normal Skin

Most skincare advice revolves around fixing, minimising, or controlling skin types.

But what if you’re one of those lucky people with normal skin?

With no visible signs of imperfections?

Is there any reason to invest time and money in a skincare routine?

After all, if it isn’t broken, why should you fix it?

Good question. But one that requires a slightly complicated answer.

So join us as we take a deep dive into normal skin.

Caring for Normal Skin

You may hold the old adage an ounce of prevention; it certainly is true of normal skin.

Just like walls enclose a house, your body is covered by the skin, a living organ that is forever changing.

If these walls show leaks due to a lack of mortar, then water and pollutants can penetrate, causing skin conditions and the deterioration of your skin’s health.

When caring for normal skin, the real challenge is learning to preserve its natural equilibrium and keeping the barrier function intact – with the help of suitable products, optimally guaranteeing its protection and prevention.

In essence, taking care of your normal skin is about listening to its unique requests and getting in front of the skin problems you don’t currently have.

Take hyperpigmentation, for instance; you may not initially see the signs of sun damage from not wearing sunscreen.

However, it will nonetheless show up much later in the form of dark brown spots when the damage is irreversible.

Our advice? If your skin isn’t overly sensitive, oily, or dry, keep it that way with a healthy skincare routine.

Protect your skin from damage and feed it the right nutrients and ingredients it needs today, rather than waiting for your naturally normal complexion to be thrown into a state of disorder.

What Can Impair Your Barrier?

There are some things that can knock your protective barrier function off balance and potentially create a skin type you don’t want:

  1. The natural ageing process depletes natural skin-identical ingredients that keep your skin healthy, such as Hyaluronic Acid, Urea, Sodium PCA, Ceramides, and Fatty Acids.
  2. Environmental assaults create free radicals that cause a cycle of destruction on your skin, breaking down collagen and elastin, our internal scaffolding.
  3. Harsh skincare products and treatments can upset the acid mantle, the delicate layer of microflora on the skin, causing sensitivity and inflammation.

6 Tips to Care for Normal Skin

So, what do you need for healthy, happy skin?

1. Wash, rinse, repeat

The rule of thumb is if you spend 30 minutes putting on your makeup, you should take the same amount of care when cleaning it off.

Miracle Cleanse protects as it cleanses, turning into a luxurious liquid-gold vitamin fix upon contact with your skin, turning your face into a delicate porcelain sponge that will soak in every last drop of ingredients to come.

2. Exfoliate, but don’t sabotage

Apply sparingly sometimes! Over-exfoliation with scrubbing bubbles is a real problem, causing serious micro-tearing of your skin.

If your skin is normal, it should be exfoliating naturally, so it is probably all you need once a week.

3. Use Targeted Treatments

We build bespoke skincare routines for all of our clients; the art of layering is the key to this success.

We start by deciding which active ingredients to combine for our client’s skin type.

Look upon this step as a supplement for an extra efficacy boost to your skincare because your skin is unique.

Take a moment and think about what your skin needs:

  • For preventative measures, particular emphasis should be placed on a stable skin barrier. This can be achieved with an Xcell barrier repair skin shot, a nutrient-rich skin shot containing Fatty Acids, Ceramides, and Vitamins.
  • Skin hydration and preserving your skin’s natural moisturising factor (NMF) is one of the most critical factors for healthy skin. H₂O Hydrating skin shot combines water-loving Hyaluronic with Urea, helping to hydrate your skin.
  • For an anti-ageing boost and to help maintain the contour of your normal skin, try A+ Retinoid skin shot.

4. Fortify your Skin’s Scaffolding

A well-thought-out moisturiser containing skin-identical ingredients will replenish missing ingredients and lock in water to the outermost layer, creating a smooth, hydrated barrier.

This means skin that looks balanced, dewy, and youthful.

5. SPF every day. Forever. Non-negotiable

UV damage is a silent killer for skin health, accounting for as much as 90 per cent of premature ageing and dark spots.

So, no matter the weather, wear a broad-spectrum SPF to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

6. That 24/7 glow

Load up on antioxidants to protect against pollution. Pollution’s free radical damage attacks healthy cells, causing oxidative stress that leads to premature ageing.

Add an antioxidant serum to your skincare routine to help defend even normal skin against the environment.

To conclude. The naked truth

Now that you have a good idea of what normal skin is, how to identify it, and most importantly, how to care for it, don’t be tempted to fall into a rut and cruise on autopilot when it comes to your skincare routine.

Paying attention to what you’re putting on your face, and treating each component as a vital piece in the puzzle, is pivotal in keeping your skin healthy and looking younger for longer.
