Skin Type: Do you know what yours is?
Winter is finally here, snowfall and all (Yes, poor me, blizzardless in sunny California). And I don’t know about you, but my skin is not enjoying this dry weather. So….it’s important now more than ever to understand your skin type so you can properly nourish and protect that beautiful skin of yours!
Skincare should be an essential part of your daily hygiene. This means daily cleansing, moisturizing, sun protection, and avoiding harsh products
In order to have an effective skincare routine, you need to understand what products will work for your skin’s unique needs.
The first step is figuring out…
“What’s my skin type?”
The type of skin you have depends on the amount of oil and water in your skin. If these are not in balance, your skin will pay the price. So if your skin has too much oil, you may be more prone to acne. If it’s too dry, you may suffer from tightness and unwanted peeling.
To help get the skin care party started, Miessence has created a line of purely natural, certified organic skincare products based on 4 typical skin types: normal, oily, dry, and combination.

If you’re unsure which type of skin you have, here’s a great at-home method to help you identifying it.
Now you’re ready to answer the next important question:
“What products are right for my skin?”
Real Simple has a great survey to help determine what products are right for your skin.
Remember to avoid harmful additives that can hurt the skin. Refinery29 lists some great hints for knowing when to eliminate products from your regimen. After you do this, it’ll be far easier to figure out the right products for you.
Looking at the Miessence skin care profiles, each one has 3 basic Miessence products for each skin type – a cleanser, skin conditioner and moisturizer. But you can also mix and match products recommended for each skin type to create your own customized organic beauty bar.
There is a whole range of purely natural Miessence skin care products to add on to the basic skincare regimen depending on your skincare goals. For example, an exfoliator should be used 1-3x week to help remove dead skin and keep skin looking fresh and bright, a blemish gel can zap minor or sudden breakouts, or an intense moisture serum can help prevent signs of aging. If it’s a concern, chances are, Miessence has a product for that.
Once you’ve got your basic skin care routine in place, you can add additional products to create a luxurious facial experience at home. The Miessence Organic Facial Spa Ritual will leave your skin pampered, nourished and looking radiant. I do this at home once a week in between my professional monthly facials to help my skin feel balanced, and to create some extra-special “me” time. It’s also perfect for helping you look your best before heading out for a special event.
I like to line up my products along the edge of my tub, light a candle and fill a hot tub. While soaking, I go through the Miessence facial steps, and when I’m done, I’m feeling relaxed and oh-so pretty!
But getting back to your skin type, if you’re still not sure what you skin type is, I highly recommend that you see an experienced esthetician or dermatologist who can look at your skin and help pinpoint your skin type and recommend a skincare regimen.
