Skin types form an inherent part of our makeup and are the result of oil (sebaceous) activity. The degree of skin type may vary depending on incorrect or excessive product usage.
It is "normal” to experience more than one skin type or condition at any given time depending on diet, environment, exposures, climate and lifestyle.
In summer, serums may suffice, keeping the skin moist. As we transit in the southern hemisphere into the cooler weather, it is recommended to apply a moisturiser over the top of serums to assist with deeper hydration and balance.
No apparent oily or dry areas skin appears balanced. It is the least problematic of all skin. The complexion is supple, healthy and clear with good circulation.
Occasional flaking of skin, no oily areas, and skin feels taut. It is more prone to develop wrinkles and fine pores and has a sallow tone and can get irritated. Click here to see which Mukti Organics products are especially suited to this skin type.
