It seems that, because there are only four distinct types of skin, no woman will ever get confused about how to care for hers. But this is not the case. For example, many people mistake dehydrated skin for dry skin.
This is why WeGoRo would like to share these beauticians’ recommendations with you to help you to once and for all look after your skin properly.
The foundation for looking after dry skin is moisturizing and nourishing.
Greasy skin requires special attention and thorough care.
Some happy people with this kind of skin don’t even use cosmetics, but they still need to take the time to care for their skin, especially in winter. As you get older, your skin might begin to dry out.
Cleansing products can contain chemicals that can destroy the skin’s lipid barrier. The result is that it stops retaining moisture. Avoid buying any products that contain the following:
Micellar water sometimes contains a small quantity of preserving agents and surface-active agents. Therefore, regardless of what is recommended on the packaging, micellar water should be washed off.
Toning neutralizes the activity of cleansing products, normalizes your pH after washing with harsh tap water, and gets your skin ready for the application of moisturizing products.
It’s a good idea to use a tonic that can be applied as a spray so as not to stretch your skin.

To protect yourself against free radicals, use creams with vitamins C and E, green tea extract, and other antioxidant plants.
Apply a day cream half an hour to an hour before going outside, and use a night cream 1-3 hours before going to bed. When you sleep, the microcirculation of your skin slows down, and face creams are absorbed poorly. This might be a cause of swelling appearing in the morning, especially around the eyes.
Apply the cream along massage lines. Be careful not to use too little or too much (in the latter case, your skin won’t be able to breathe). If the cream hasn’t been absorbed within half an hour, remove the excess with a tissue.
A day cream should be applied no later than half an hour before going outside and during winter no later than an hour before doing so to allow it to be absorbed.
Regardless of the type of skin you have, stick to the following rules:
There are many reasons why blackheads appear on the skin. It can be due to the skin being greasy, because the ducts of the oil glands have been blocked, because of an accumulation of dust and dirt in the pores, and even because you’re using the wrong cream for your skin. You can get rid of them using one of the following methods:
