Understand Your Specific Skin Type
The most important step to care for your skin starts with understanding your specific skin type. It’s like diagnosing the ailment before prescription drugs. You cannot begin to know what your skin needs if you don’t know your skin type.
Call it the beginning of wisdom for skin care. But interestingly, most people who want to look beautiful don’t even know this most important step. They just copy what others are doing that’s working for them, without knowing if it will work for them too.

Learn To Adopt To Seasonality
The next tip is about adapting to certain circumstances or seasonality. How best you do this would determine how good you will look every season. Do you wander why some people look good during some seasons and not as good in other seasons? Your skin changes with season. You have to know that and adopt to it.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, as complex and intelligent as your heart, lungs, liver and other vital organs, your skin demands more attention. It’s also the most noticeable part of your body. If something is wrong with your skin you can see it on time.
Take note of the seasons depending on your country or location. Some times the weather is hot, cold, rainy, dry, or a combination of two or more of it. Like, there can be hot and dry weather at the same time, or cold and rainy weather. You need to know how and with what to care for your skin during the different circumstances.
Don’t Send The Wrong Signals To Your Skin
Now, this one is on you. You have to learn not to be sending wrong signals to your skin. You may not know it’s what’s responsible for the changes in your skin that you are complaining about. Remember the skin is also sensitive, has its own intelligence and can communicate invariably.
You can send wrong signals to your skin by using cleansers and treatments that are too harsh. And it doesn’t matter if they are recommended for excessive oiliness. They may send the signal to your skin that more oil is actually needed.
Learn to be moderate even when it seems like you should be a little harsh with remedies.
Avoid Moisturizers Too Thick or Heavy
Another way you can send wrong signal is also by applying moisturizers that are too thick or heavy. This can result in decreased natural oil production, which would result in even drier skin.
Choose your moisturizers well. If you are using Infini Clear products for example, add a little Infini Clear carrot oil to soften the moisturizer. Mix it properly, not to be too soft either. The carrot oil will help the thick lotion or cream to become softer for better application.
Choosing the right option would mean taking the time to learn your skin’s specific needs. When you understand what your skin needs you can better make the best choice of how to care for it. And with a balance skin, the result will be a healthier, more radiant complexion.
Understand that every person’s skin is unique, and have different needs. Don’t copy your friends in using the same kind of moisturizers unless their skin type is same as yours. To know your skin type is the beginning of looking beautiful.
However, there are a few common skin types that may help you to identify where your skin fits. The main skin types are commonly referred to as Oily, Normal/Combination and Dry. There’s also sensitive skin, which is just an anomaly of some sort. Here are two easy ways to determine your skin type at home from another post on this blog.
