How you recognise your skin type

Resilient combination skin type

If you have resilient combination skin, it's typically because your skin is versatile yet prone to blemishes. This means your skin has both oily and dry areas, but you still encounter occasional blemishes. Some parts of your skin may produce too much oil, leading to clogged pores and pimples, while other areas might feel dry and flaky. Despite these challenges, your skin can generally handle various environmental stressors well. To care for resilient combination skin, it's essential to use gentle cleansers and moisturizers to balance the skin without exacerbating blemishes.

What your result indicates

Inflammation level

Inflammation of the skin is the body's response to external stimuli (e.g. food, sleep, stress), varying in intensity from mild redness to severe swelling. The level of inflammation is crucial for diagnosing skin issues, determining treatment, and monitoring conditions. It's also influenced by skin type and lifestyle habits.

Properly managing inflammation, considering individual skin types and lifestyle factors, is essential for maintaining skin health and comfort.

0-3: Low Inflammation

Maintain and Care

Maintain a healthy lifestyle and complement it with a suitable skincare routine. Regular, right skincare practices are key to preserving your skin's health while continuing your positive lifestyle habits.

4-6: Mild Inflammation

Minor Adjustments Needed

Your skin indicates the need for minor lifestyle and skincare adjustments. Incorporating healthier habits and tweaking your skincare routine can visibly improve your skin's health.

7-9: Moderate Inflammation

Lifestyle Overhaul

Significant lifestyle changes are necessary to combat the visible impact on your skin. Focusing on better nutrition and reducing stress will be crucial in turning around your skin's condition.

10+: High Inflammation

Immediate Action Required

Your current lifestyle is severely affecting your skin's health, leading to impurities, inflammation, and possibly premature aging. It's imperative to overhaul your lifestyle for the sake of your skin and overall well-being.

What to do next

Taking action

Understanding your skin type and inflammation level is crucial in crafting a skincare routine that not only addresses your immediate concerns but also promotes long-term health and vitality.

While healthy habits form the foundation of good skin health, they should be complemented with a tailored skincare regimen. Whether your skin is prone to low or high inflammation, selecting products and routines designed for your specific needs can significantly enhance your skin's appearance and resilience.

Remember, a thoughtful approach to skincare, combined with a commitment to healthy living, is your best strategy for achieving and maintaining beautiful, healthy skin.

7 steps for a healthy skin

The M-Beauty Skincare Routine

1. Cleanse

What it does: cleansing is the first step to clear away the day's dirt, oil, and makeup. It helps to unclog pores and prevent skin issues like acne and dullness.

Why it's important: a clean face provides a fresh slate for the rest of your skincare products, allowing them to absorb better and work more effectively.

2. Exfoliate

What it does: exfoliation removes dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin. It can be done using physical scrubs or chemical exfoliants.

Why it's important: regular exfoliation enhances cell renewal for brighter, smoother skin and reduces the appearance pores and fine lines.

3. Mask

What it does: masks are treatments packed with nutrients and actives that address specific skin concerns, such as hydration, oiliness, or aging.

Why it's important: using a mask 1-2 times a week can give your skin an extra boost of what it needs, whether that's moisture, detoxification, or rejuvenation.

4. Tone

What it does: toning helps to balance the skin's pH after cleansing and removes any residue left behind. It also preps the skin for serums and moisturisers.

Why it's important: a well-formulated toner hydrates, and soothes the skin, making the subsequent steps more effective (ingredient absorption).

5. Treat

What it does: this step involves applying serums or treatments rich in active ingredients targetting specific concerns like acne, dark spots, or wrinkles.

Why it's important: targeted treatments deliver powerful ingredients directly to the problem areas, ensuring your skin gets the specialised care it needs.

6. Moisturise

What it does: moisturising helps to hydrate and lock in moisture, keeping the skin soft, supple, and plump. It can also strengthen the skin's barrier function.

Why it's important: moisturising regularly is crucial to healthy skin, preventing dry or oily patches and shielding against environmental aggressors.

7. Protect

What it does: applying sunscreen in the morning to protect the skin from harmful UV rays, which cause premature aging and increase the risk of skin cancer.

Why it's important: sun protection is essential every day, not just when it's sunny. It prevents sun damage, including dark spots, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.

Each step in this routine plays a vital role. Adopting this comprehensive approach ensures your skin receives all the care it needs to stay healthy, to look and feel its best.
