Skin Type VS Skin Condition

This is something that gets asked quite a lot in clinic. 'What is the difference between a skin type and a skin condition?' Let us help and break it down for you!

Skin Types
Skin types are predetermined by our genetics and cannot be changed. The different skin types include:
- Normal
- Oily
- Combination

Skin Conditions

Skin conditions however, can occur to different skin types due to internal and external factors (diet, environment etc.) The various skin conditions can include:

- Dehydration
- Sensitivity
- Pigmentation
- Acne
- Congestion⁠


Dry skin 💧⁠
- Is a skin type where the skin lacks lipids and or oils. ⁠
- Your skin will look flaky and dry in appearance and slight redness or irritation. ⁠
- We recommend using good cream cleanser like Organic Rituals Aloe Cream Cleanser
- The perfect treatment for dry skin is The HydraFacial

Dehydrated skin 💧⁠
- Is a skin condition that occurs when there is a lack of water in the skin.⁠
- Generally looks dull in colour, loss of elasticity and show signs of premature ageing. ⁠
- We recommend using a nourishing serum like Organic Rituals Hyla VitA+serum (if not pregnant)
- The perfect treatment for dehydration in the skin is Mandelic or Lactic Peel
