How can I determine my skin type?

Answer:

Appropriate skin care begins with learning the unique features and needs of our skin. First of all, we do not choose cosmetics for our age, but for the condition of our skin and its current needs. They may change depending on the season, weather, our diet, lifestyle and also age etc.

DRY SKIN

The skin "drinks" all applied cosmetics

From time to time you feel skin tightness, itching and even burning

Imperfections, blemishes and pimples appear very rarely

You notice gentle wrinkles

Peeling skin may occur

NORMAL/COMBINATION SKIN

In the second half of the day, your skin in the T zone (forehead, nose, chin) begins to shine slightly, the rest of the face (especially the cheeks, but also the eye area) can be dry and rough

Sometimes Imperfections appear as a result of stress or hormonal changes

You don’t need many skin care cosmetics

OILY SKIN (also with acne problems)

Skin sometimes shines even shortly after washing

Blemishes, blackheads and other imperfections often appear

You have visibly enlarged pores

You don't complain about wrinkles

SENSITIVE SKIN (may be also dry or oily)

The skin easily becomes red and irritated (especially when you reach for new cosmetics)

Eczema, hives or allergic reactions accompany you regularly

Remember that regardless of your skin type your lifestyle is very important. Skin's appearance is a reflection of the state of our health, of what’s happening inside our bodies, of the way we treat our body. Avoid sweets, to many dairy products, fast food or processed foods in general. Each skin type also likes good sleep, a bit of relaxation, physical activity, protection against UV radiation and drinking enough water. Also always cleanse your face before you go to bed.


How to take care of combination skin?

Answer: Combined skin can be unruly and problematic in care. Depending on the part of the face, it may be both excessively glossy and greasy and on the contrary: dry and rough. It is therefore crucial to normalize the secretion of sebum (forehead, area between the eyes) while moisturizing and regenerating dry, irritated skin (usually on the cheeks).

For the evening care Kiré Skin Ritual, inspired by classic Japanese Geisha ritual, will be perfect:

Step 1 Cleansing

For cleansing combination skin, using delicate washing oils (-> Green Tea & Meadowfoam Cleansing Oil) or natural oils is the best option. Remember to clean skin both, in the evening and in the morning

Step 2 Exfoliation

For exfoliation of combination skin, you can use enzymatic and mechanical peels (i.e. such as Crystal Face Scrub Herbal & Apple with salt flecks), but certain rules must be followed. A mechanical face scrub is best suited to those parts of the face where dry skin is visible, e.g. often on the lobes of the nose. Exfoliation should be carried out no more than 2-3 times a week. If there are imperfections on the face (pimples, pimples), it is better to be careful with mechanical peeling so as not to irritate the skin

Step 3 Toning

Restoring the right pH is crucial for all skin types - it allows you to prepare your skin to absorb nutrients and moisturizers. It's the best when the tonic not only restores balance, but also nourishes (-> Ginseng Root & Ylang Ylang Flower Tonic)

Step 4 Nourishing and regeneration

No matter what type, skin needs to be moisturized and regenerated. This is where our serum (-> Serum Fermented Red Ginseng Root & Papaya Seed) comes into action. Papaya seed oil and extremely effective, yet delicate, fermented Korean ginseng root extract, two active ingredients, will do an amazing job.

Products with a gel or gel-like consistency will work the best.


How to take care of oily & acne prone skin?

Answer: Oily skin unfortunately is not easy to care for: the face glistens and shines, pores are dilated, often the skin is haunted by persistent imperfections - blackheads, pimples and blemishes. In many cases, it is also affected by acne. Skin care should be based on thorough cleansing (makeup removal and cleansing all impurities) and normalizing sebum secretion, as well as moisturizing.

It is fundamental to remove excess sebum before the pores get clogged. Simultaneously you must be very careful not to over-dry the skin in the fight against overactive sebaceous glands. Defensive reaction will be increased sebum production. That is why you shouldn’t reach for matting products or the ones based on alcohol. Cleansing oil or gentle cleansing gel will be great, but you may also want to try blotting paper (the best will be from natural ingredients fo e.g rice paper.)

Toning is important for all skin types - and of course, for oily skin too. Disruption in skin's pH may cause damage to the skin's natural water-lipid coat. Effects? Irritations and hypersensitivity, including acne, seborrhea, discoloration, blemishes, accelerated skin aging. Tonic applied before serum or moistruizer will help to tie water in skin cells. For evening skin care choose cosmetics with nutritional, antioxidant and soothing properties.


 How to take care of dry skin?

Answer: Sometimes dry skin is a gift from our genes. Often, however, improper skin care and lack of knowledge are to blame. It is influenced by so many factors: climate, diet, polluted and / or dry air, hard water, rough clothes, stress, hormonal disorders, but also applied cosmetics for, e.g. those with alcohol are definitely not friends of dry skin. Of course, the natural aging process also leads to skin becoming both less elastic and hydrated.

What can you do? Here you have a few quick and effective tips:

Let’s start with some basic stuff: when washing your face, remember that water should be lukewarm - hot water is a true crime against your skin (especially if you have problem with dryness). Too high a temperature (this rule applies also in the shower!) can damage the skin's protective barrier. Also do not rub the skin with a towel to wipe it - instead gently collect the water just by touching your skin or simply let your face dry.

Regular exfoliation is very important. The dead skin that builds up on our face makes it look tired.

Apply serum or moistruizer to damp skin - the ideal solution is to apply a nourishing and regenerating cosmetic after applying tonic. Thanks to this little procedure, the cells will retain water and the face will be better hydrated.

Moisturize skin in the morning and in the evening on regular basis! If you feel the need to moisture during the day do not hesitate to do so and for example apply tonic - your skin will be grateful.

Facial masks are made for dry skin! Pamper your skin with a mask at least 2 times a week. Just 15 minutes can really make a difference. Set tonic + face masks will be perfect!

Regardless of the season, remember about proper UV protection - yes, also in winter. (this rule applies to all skin types, even those lucky ones without any problems)

Try multi-step skin care routine. Also when your skin needs more hydration apply oils first (e.g. serum) and for better results additionally put moistruizer

Invest in a humidifier - especially in autumn and winter, when air in the apartments is dry or when you spend a lot of time in air-conditioned rooms



How to take care of sensitive skin?

Answer: Sensitive skin has its challenges. It's difficult to choose care products because you never know what can cause redness, an allergic reaction or irritation. The basic rule is - before applying the cosmetic to the whole face, do a test on a small fragment of the skin, for e.g. behind the ear. Just to be safe wait about 24 hours to make sure you don't have an unpleasant reaction.




Let’s talk about some basic stuff: when washing your face, remember that water should be lukewarm - hot water is a true crime against your skin (especially if you have problem with dryness). Too high a temperature (this rule applies also in the shower!) can damage the skin's protective barrier. Also do not rub the skin with a towel to wipe it - instead gently collect the water just by touching your skin or simply let your face dry.

Less is better - don’t use too many cosmetics and don’t suddenly change your routine. Stick to your veirfied and trusted choices. Avoid products with alcohol, fragrances, fruit acids and active substances such as glycolic acid, vitamin A or retinol. Instead, reach for cosmetics that have anti-inflammatory substances in their formulas, such as sage extract, green tea, grape seed oil or damask rose extract.

Although many cosmetics advertise themselves as "for sensitive skin" or "hypoallergenic", unfortunately, the ingredients often say something completely different. Read the labels to make sure that the product is really dedicated to sensitive skin.

Remember that each skin is different and has individual needs - if you have any questions or doubts - we will be more than happy to help, advise and together look for the best solution: hello@kireskin.com
