Know Your Skin Type:

- Before taking the plunge into a natural skin recipe, it's important to know your skin type as well as the problems associated with it. The five basic skin types are dry, oily, sensitive, mature, and combination. The most common skin problems are acne, wrinkles, and dull complexion.

Dry skin:

- Dry skin is characterized by small pores, along with a consistent lack of moisture than leads to an uncomfortable tight feeling. Dry skin is particularly prone to fine lines, wrinkles, and broken capillaries.

Sensitive Skin:

Sensitive skin can affect both dry and oily skin types. It is easily irritated by harsh skin products that are loaded with chemical additives. Dry sensitive skin is dry and fragile, and can easily become irritated by environmental conditions and certain skin products. When overly washed, the pores of oily sensitive skin can release an over-production of sebum.

- Mature Skin:

Mature skin is known for its lack of elasticity, compared to younger skin. It tends to be looser, drier, and duller, due to a decrease in sebum production. Mature skin can appear to be heavily lined, thin, and taut.

Combination Skin:

Most people have combination skin, with dryness around the cheeks and eyes, and excess oil production on the forehead, nose, and chin. This type of skin is generally treated by a specific area, for best results.

Acne-Prone Skin:

Skin that is prone to acne can be easily irritated by commercial solutions designed to treat the problem, as these treatments tend to strip the skin of its natural protective oils. The common factors associated with acne are genetics, excess oil production, and a diet high in sugar, wheat, and dairy.

Wrinkles:

While the presence of wrinkles is mostly the result of genetics and the natural aging process, they can also be caused by excess sun exposure, smoking, dehydration, and repetitive facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting.
