Even if you take pride in being weird (shoutout to all the weirdos out there), your skin may be as normal as stage fright. Or maybe you've seen skincare marketed to "normal" skin types and have wondered if that's you. If you have normal skin, that means you don't have any blemishes and your skin tone is even. You're neither oily nor dry, and you don't have any major skin issues to worry about.
The good news is: congratulations! You don't have to repair damaged skin or work on correcting skin issues. The bad news is that environmental factors—sun and pollution, for instance—and poor-quality skin products can throw your normal skin out of whack.
For normal skin types, the key is to maintain normalcy and prevent damage. Here's our recommendation for maintaining and pampering your gorgeous skin:
1. Cleanse – It's important to select a mild cleanser that won't strip away your skin's natural oils, but will still thoroughly remove dirt and makeup.
2. Tone – A good toner brings the pH of your skin back in balance, which means preventing breakouts and the spread of bacteria. It should also include valuable antioxidants.
3. Nourish – Maintain proper hydration through nourishing ingredients like aloe vera and hyaluronic acid. Masking regularly helps combat environmental stressors that can cause premature aging. We recommend the Soon Skincare Biocelluose Firming Face Mask to soften fine lines and deliver beneficial antioxidants to your skin.
4. Protect – Wear sunscreen every day, even if you can't see the sun (overcast days are the worse for UV rays). Put on a light moisturizer first, then apply sunscreen.
Having normal skin now doesn't mean you'll always have normal skin. Prevention and pampering are key to maintaining your gorgeous complexion.
