What to Do if Your Skin Type Has Changed

Posted by on March 6, 2020 in Skin & Hair Care with 0 Comments

You may have had oily skin when you were a teenager, but then you reach adulthood and get dry skin. You may be used to having dry skin but then your T-zone starts to look shiny by midday. Your skin type can change due to several reasons, but don’t worry. You don’t need to stick to an old routine that no longer works, but you don’t have to change everything completely either.

Here are the things you can do to remedy the situation:

Switch Out Your Toner

Plenty of beauty products advertise themselves to be good for all skin types, but that may not always be the reality of it. There will always be a foundation that works better for oily skin, while others are best for combination. When it comes to toners, however, things are simpler. You don’t need to second-guess if the toner is great for dry skin because it literally says right there on the packaging. It’s also an inexpensive product to replace in your routine, so start there. Next time you buy skin toner online, choose the same brand that has worked well for you in the past, but go with the option that’s better suited to your skin type now. Don’t throw your old product just yet, though. Who knows when you’ll need it again?

Change Your Cleansing Routine

There are so many cleansing products out there, you may be spoiled for choices. The problem with this is that because a cleanser’s job is literally to remove product on your face, you may not realize that it, too, could contribute to the problem. Take a look at the label of your cleanser more thoroughly and see if it’s an oil-based or water-based cleanser. If it’s water-based, it will work for oily skin and combination skin. If you’ve been using an oil-based cleanser and you have oily skin, however, it’s time to make a switch. Again, it’s all a matter of replacing one product in your skincare routine and seeing the changes gradually. Don’t rush. Your skin needs time to get used to a new product, even if it’s technically the same product.

Moisturize as Needed

The oil production of your skin is not as random as you think. It’s a response to your body’s current state, akin to how sweating is a way to regulate your body’s temperature. When your skin is dry, your sebaceous glands get the signal to produce more oil. This is why it’s not recommended to use all drying products or overexfoliate because this might just lead to more oil production. Moisturize your skin to keep it hydrated as a way to control its oil production, among other benefits. And remember that some skin types need more moisture, so reapply throughout the day as necessary.

No one has the same skin type for all their life. But that doesn’t mean you have to make drastic changes to your skincare routine. In fact, that’s not recommended. Take it slowly and let your skin get used to the products you’re slowly switching out and replacing with a better fit for your current skin type.
