Your Skin & Self: The Importance of Caring

In this day and age, there’s constant talk about all the latest skincare products – what’s good for your skin? What’s bad for your skin? At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what skin problems you have; having a skincare routine should be essential to your life.

So, how can you educate yourself? When a billion internet sources are talking into your ear about how you should be treating your skin, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. The reasons why skincare is so important, though, are so much more than superficial. The big appeal to having such a routine is to preemptively stop your skin from aging and wrinkling down the road, but it can also protect you from various environmental dangers, some of which could negatively impact your overall health.

The first step to building a skincare routine is to find out what your own skin type is, and decide from there what’s best for you. A simple and effective way to do this is by taking an online quiz, one of which we have linked for you here! After answering seven questions, you’ll receive one of four results: oily, dry, combination, or sensitive.

Now it’s time for us to help you navigate your result – we’ll tell you a little about your type and recommend some Aveda products to help! 

  • Oily

People with oily skin often experience issues with clogged pores and pimples, and have trouble maintaining balance. For everyone with this skin type, we strongly recommend the Aveda Botanical Kinetics Oily set. This package includes a gel cleanser, a toning mist, and a hydrating lotion. Each of these products are specially formulated to combat harmful oils, acne, and impurities, and will give your skin all the balance it’s been craving.

  • Dry

It’s been clinically proven that people with dry skin have a higher chance of obtaining infections and conditions, such as eczema, if left untreated. Luckily for everyone with this type, the Aveda offers a solution with their Botanical Kinetics Dry set. This line differs from the oily collection as it includes a cream cleanser, a toning agent, and (again) a hydrating lotion. Instead of a focus on balance, this collection is focused on reviving your skin with the moisture it’s been lacking.

  • Combination

The tough thing about combination-type skin is that you have a little bit of everything. Some places may be excessively oily while others are totally dry, so you may not be able to use all the same products in all the same places. In other ways, though, this type of skin is ideal, because it is producing a balanced effect, meaning that your skin stabilizes itself out. However, this isn’t to say that you don’t need skincare! We suggest putting primary focus on hydration, because it’s something that everyone needs, regardless of skin type. Therefore, we recommend trying this multi-use product by Aveda called the Tulasāra Renewing Radiance Creme. This cream will help promote consistency within the texture of your skin while simultaneously battling environmental hazards. Using this product amongst any skincare routine will help you achieve your ideally-even skin!

  • Sensitive

One of the reasons Aveda has become a popular and respected skincare brand is because of their already-gentle ingredients. They pride themselves in the proven benefits of their all-natural products. We could argue that any Aveda product is already moderate enough for use on sensitive skin, but their website recommends one product in particular: the Tulasāra Calm Concentrate. This serum is said to instantly relax the skin and reduce irritation, and can be used before any ordinary skincare routine!

For any skin problems you might be battling, Aveda certainly has a solution for you, with additional information accessible online. All of the listed products are available to purchase in-store at Soleil Salon & Spa in Windham, New Hampshire, or on our official website. Don’t neglect the largest organ of your body!
