How to find the best skincare according to skin type


Do you know what skincare suits you best?

Simply doing nothing and waiting will not bring you closer to your ideal skin. What is important is to take care of your skin in a way that is perfectly suited to your skin, just like makeup and fashion.

Let's find the best skincare routine, and get beautiful, glowing skin.

Everyone's skin types are different

Just as we are all born with different heights and eye colors, the quality of our skin differs from person to person.

What kind of skin problems may occur accordingly is also different for everyone.

Women's skin types are broadly classified into five categories: dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, combination skin, and normal skin.

Do you know which type your skin belongs to? First, let us explain the characteristics of each skin type.



Normal Skin Type

The skin with a good balance of oil and moisture.

This type is characterized by moderate to high moisture content, moderate luster, and fine, soft skin.

Pores are less noticeable, and it's easy to apply makeup. It is also less prone to makeup smudging over time.



Dry Skin Type

Dry skin, which is low in both moisture and oil, can appear flaky.

This skin type is characterized by a tendency to get damaged, which can lead to spots and wrinkles in the future.

The skin may have a fine texture, but may not be as glossy or smooth.

Dry skin can lead to sensitive skin.

Oily Skin Type

Oily skin, which is high in both moisture and oil, is prone to sebum-related problems due to excessive oil production.

Sebum can clog pores, causing blackheads and calluses, and excessive sebum secretion can easily cause makeup to smudge and make the skin look shiny.

Although the skin is moist and elastic, it may have a coarse texture, and pores may be open.

Combination Skin Type (Inner Dry Skin)

Combination skin type with excessive oil and low moisture content is also called the "inner dry skin."

While the skin is noticeably dry and flaky, it also has open pores and a coarse texture.

It is also characterized by hard skin and is prone to makeup breakdown.



Sensitive Skin Type

Sensitive skin is a characteristic that is associated with each of the above types.

It refers to a condition in which the skin is sensitive to irritation and prone to skin problems.

In particular, dry skin is more prone to sensitive skin, which should be improved through careful skincare.

Thus, there are many different types of skin, each of which requires a different skincare regimen.

Skincare that does not suit your skin type can lead to poor skin conditions and problems.

So consider which type your skin is classified as and use that as a criterion for choosing the skincare methods that we are going to introduce.



The keyword is "acidic"

Did you know that the most important thing for all skin types is to keep your skin "acidic"?

It is said that the skin in a healthy state is slightly acidic.

The skin is home to a myriad of the microbiome that coexists in harmony with us human beings.

When the skin is kept in an acidic state, the microbiome does not cause any problems and even leads the skin to a more beautiful state.

However, when the skin pH is not acidic, the microbiome changes into bad bacteria that can cause skin problems.

When the "good microbiome for skin" dies, skin's sterilizing function becomes weakened, leading to skin problems.

In other words, it is important to keep your skin "acidic" to keep your skin clean.



How to Keep Your Skin Acidic

The key here is the skincare products you use daily.

In particular, many facewashes are neutral or alkaline and can lead the skin alkaline.

Therefore, it is important to choose skincare products that are slightly acidic.

Also, be aware of avoiding stress.

Stress can cause excessive sebum secretion and skin sensitivity.

This can lead to an environment where bad bacteria can easily multiply and the skin's barrier function can deteriorate, and cause the skin not to be able to maintain a slightly acidic state.



For dry skin

1)Avoid strong surfactants

2)Choose skincare products that do not contain paraben preservatives or other ingredients that irritate the skin.

3)Use products that contain lots of moisturizing ingredients.

Those who have dry skin need to replenish with moisturizers and other products.

Use skincare products that contain lots of moisturizing ingredients.

Also, facewashes that contain strong surfactants, preservatives, and other irritating ingredients will kill the skin microbiome and lead to skin that is more susceptible to damage.

Use slightly acidic facewashes and try to maintain the good microbiome for skin.



For oily skin

1) Avoid over-washing.

2) Avoid using cosmetics with high glycerin content

3) Use skincare products with a light texture.

Many people with oily skin may have problems like shiny skin or acne. And this makes them wash their face with strong surfactants.

However, it is important to keep your skin acidic because oily skin tends to become alkaline.

Choose slightly acidic facewashes that do not contain strong surfactants and gently cleanses the skin.

Also, cosmetics that contain a lot of glycerin may cause acne for people with oily skin.

Check your skincare products for glycerin.



For combination skin

1) Use a moisturizing cleanser with fine lather.

2) Moisturize well

3) Prioritize care for dryness over oily areas of the skin.

Many people with combination skin, which is a mixture of oily and dry skin, strive to improve the oiliness of their skin.

However, what is important for combination skin is to improve dryness.

Increased dryness damages the skin, which in turn worsens the oily condition. So, don't forget to take care of the oily T-zone too.

Along with moisturizing care, don't forget to care for the oily areas and wash gently.

Be sure to pay attention to your daily diet too and to get beautiful skin!



For sensitive skin

1) Use products with fewer irritating ingredients.

2) Select products for sensitive skin

3) Moisture replenishment should be a top priority.

If your skin is sensitive, using the wrong skincare products may lead to skin troubles.

Choose products with gentle textures and a few irritating ingredients.

Nowadays, there are many skincare products for sensitive skin, so check reviews and ingredients carefully.

Many people with sensitive skin are susceptible to dryness, so it is also important to use a skincare product that moisturizes the skin.




Love your skin, Love your KINS

Depending on your skin type, there is a suitable skincare regimen. Use the above descriptions to find ways to keep your skin slightly acidic and coexist with the microbiome that keeps your skin beautiful.

Our name, "KINS" means "microbiome" in Japanese.
