Dry skin has a lack of oil production. Oil is our skin’s natural lubricant and is important for its overall health. If your skin is dry, you may experience tightness, a pulling sensation, less visible pores and even flaking. The skin can feel uncomfortable and due to the lack of oil, can become sensitised and prone to redness. This can be minimised by using moisturisers for dry skin such as Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Rich Cream, which protects your skin against environmental stressors, leaving you with a radiant complexion.
NORMAL / COMBINATION
Most women fall into this category. If you have normal/combination skin, you tend to have a shiny t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) and/or dry cheeks, but overall, your skin feels comfortable. To keep skin looking even and radiant, we offer a range of hydrating moisturisers with different textures, depending on your preference. To help balance your skin and stay looking youthful, we recommend our cream and gel textures, such as the Lancôme Visionnaire Day Cream.
Oily skin has a shiny appearance. This is because oil is overproduced, and this tends to cover the entire face rather than just the t-zone. You may have visible or enlarged pores, or congestion and blemishes. We recommend a cleanser for combination skin such as Gel Eclat to remove oil build-up, as well as a light moisturiser for oily skin. This will keep it looking hydrated, while balancing excess production of sebum with a radiant complexion.
All skin can be prone to dehydration, which is a skin condition, not a skin type. Dehydration is a lack of water, not oil, so to achieve healthy looking skin and to get the best out of your products, we recommend setting the stage with efficient cleansing
