Caring for your skin type

Caring for dry skin
Use a specially designed cleansing lotion to cleanse your skin, but leave it on for a while before wiping it away. Splash cold water on your face to freshen it. Use heavy-duty moisturizer which will help the skin retain moisture and prevent evaporation.

Caring for oily skin
Wash your skin with cleansing foam. It removes impurities, but retains moisture. After that, rub the skin with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol-based lotion. Even oily skin needs moisturizing, but the moisturizer has to be light. Dab away all excesses with a tissue.

Caring for mixed skin
Use cleansing foam to wash your face in the morning. This will keep the oily parts clean and prevent the formation of blackheads. In the evening, apply moisturizer to calm the dry areas.

Caring for sensitive skin
Never wash your face with soap. Use hypoallergenic cleansing lotion instead. Use a nourishing moisturizer and a lotion which creates a protective barrier to prevent irritation. Make sure that your moisturizer does not contain perfume.

Caring for normal skin
Wash your face with foam. While doing that, rub the foam in, massaging the face with gentle circular motions. Cool your skin down with a splash of cold water or lotion which does not contain alcohol.
