A simple explanation for your healthy future!

In order to take care of our facial skin in the best possible way, we first have to know what skin type we have. In this small article I will explain how you can quickly recognize which skin you really have. In addition to normal skin, which creates ideal conditions for "light" care, there are skin types that require more extensive care. With facial oils you can specifically strengthen your skin and protect it from moisture loss and environmental influences (*free radicals).

Facial oils are becoming more and more popular in daily routines, but there are still some misconceptions and unanswered questions that I'll get to the bottom of for you here.

While you are relatively free in putting together your routine with normal skin, you have to consider a few points with the following skin types.

- Oily skin

- Impure skin

- combination skin

- Dry skin

- Sensitive skin

Here I'll show you a tip on how to best optimize and put together your routine.

The so-called iodine number is used to categorize the different oils and determines how quickly or slowly an oil dries when it comes into contact with oxygen.

- Up to 100 non-drying oils that are high in saturated fat, which means they absorb very slowly into the skin. They put a light film on your skin and are therefore good for dry skin, but rather not for combination, oily and impure skin.

Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil. (Normal Skin)

- From 100 - 170 we are talking about semi-dry oils, here we have a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids, which in turn are very well absorbed by the skin recorded.

Sunflower seed oil, grape seed oil, apricot kernel oil, argan oil.

- Over 170 are dry oils that absorb very quickly due to their polyunsaturated fatty acids and leave no greasy film. These oils are good for combination, oily and impure skin.

linseed oil, rosehip oil.

Many of the facial oils listed contain ingredients that influence the body's own sebum production by giving it the signal to produce less sebum because it is being supplied from the outside. This means the skin produces less, which is especially beneficial for people with large pores and blackheads.

I recommend our bundles for normal and sensitive skin to get in touch with the benefits of facial oils for the first time or further. Take a look below:

A brief overview of the respective skin type in terms of iodine value and degree of comedogenicity. However, it is still important to know that every skin is extremely individual, so the various guides can help you choose the right oil, coupled with individual observation of your skin.

The comedogenic degree determines whether an oil has the property of causing impurities and clogged pores. Non-comedogenic therefore means that it does not clog the pores of the skin. Some of the facial oils cannot penetrate the skin and are deposited on the top layer of skin, making it difficult to shed old skin cells. The scale on which the degree of comedogenicity is measured is measured from 0-5.

  • 0 - 1 non-comedogenic oils, they do not clog your pores and can therefore also be used by people with impure and oily skin.
  • Argan oil. Hemp oil, jojoba oil, prickly pear seed oil, shea butter, hazelnut oil, grape seed oil.Squalane, Rosehip Oil
  • 2 neutral oils
  • Sunflower Oil, Grapefruit Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil

  • 3-5 comedogenic oils, can be used on very dry skin or hair
  • Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Marula Oil
  • foily skin - 130 - 170 - 0-1
  • Blemished skin - 130-170 - 0-1
  • Mixed skin 130- 170 - 0-2 you should care for the different parts of the skin individually (T zone)
  • Dry skin - up to 100 optimal but also higher - 0-5 the drier the higher
  • Sensitive skin - >100 - 0-1
