#AD. This post is in conjunction with No7 but all thoughts are my own.

I feel my most confident when my skin is healthy and when I don’t have to hide behind the mask of make-up. My own skin journey has been a squiggly path, having experienced my fair share of ups and downs throughout my teens, 20s, now late 30s, tackling various skin concerns. And every time I sense a significant change, I get a wave of panic but I have come to accept that things can change throughout the years and in my lifetime. It certainly pays to observe how my skin looks and tailor my routine to combat the concern. 

Understanding your own skin type and selecting the right products is what will change the game. From oily to dry, sensitive to combination, each skin type demands tailored care to maintain its health and rebalance. Committing to an appropriate routine with carefully selected products will make a world of difference in how your skin looks and feels. It’s a total confidence booster.

When it comes to tackling skin concerns, No7 Derm Solutions™ skincare range has got you covered. Let’s talk about the five different skin types and why choosing the right skin care products for you is crucial for nurturing your skin’s needs. 

Dry Skin:

You might experience dry skin during certain times of the year, particularly in the cold months. Dry skin can feel tight, rough, and flaky which can lead to discomfort. It might even become irritated and sensitive. The flaky patches of dry skin can be a particular nuisance, as most make-up will just exacerbate the issue. 

Understanding what causes dry skin is essential for implementing an effective routine to restore hydration and balance. Dry skin occurs when the skin loses moisture and essential oils, leading to a compromised skin barrier. Several contributing factors include environmental elements like cold weather, low humidity, showering or bathing in hot water, age, and generally dehydration from not drinking enough water (oh, hi, that’s me).

Adding a serum as an extra step to your routine is beneficial for dry skin and the Derm Solutions™ Skin Balancing Serum is a highly concentrated serum with ingredients such as Green Tea, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E to combat uneven skin tone, dryness, dullness, and texture issues. It is clinically-tested and dermatologist-approved too!

Sensitive skin:

Sensitive skin is when your skin is reactive to certain products, ingredients, or even things like fabrics and sudden change in weather. These can trigger symptoms including allergy-like reactions such as redness and bumpy surfaces, which can spread across the face. 

How to treat sensitive skin is to use minimal products within your routine and look for gentle, fragrance-free products formulated for sensitive skin. To alleviate any issues with sensitive skin, avoid harsh ingredients like alcohol and it’s always advisable to perform patch tests before applying across the whole face. 

Two suitable products to use for sensitive skin is Derm Solutions™ Comforting Cream Cleanser to cleanse away whatever is causing a flare up, and then a calming face cream like Derm Solutions™ 100HR Hydration Cream moisturizer to calm the sensitivity and provide comfort relief.

Oily skin:

People with an oily skin type are usually most prone to blackheads due to enlarged pores and those pores being clogged. Those with this skin type should use products that are oil-free with a matte finish, and check that it’s non-comedogenic meaning it doesn’t clog pores.

Reasons for oily skin can be a number of factors such as having overactive sebaceous glands, hormones, diet, humidity, using the wrong products and make-up – all leading to your face producing excess oil, a shiny complexion, enlarged pores and eventually a breakout.

Say goodbye to excess oil with Derm Solutions™ Bundle For Oily & Blemish Prone Skin – a trio tailored for oily skin featuring Derm Solutions™ Calming Gel Cleanser, Derm Solutions™ Skin Balancing Serum, Derm Solutions™ Lightweight Hydrating Lotion that soothes blemish-prone skin.

Combination skin:

A skincare routine for combination skin poses challenges that can be quite tricky to navigate as it involves using a trial and error of products that addresses both oily and dry areas, but this is where No7 Derm Solutions can help! We have come to expect this level of expertise from such an iconic British beauty brand that you can always rely upon to remedy skin problems.

For the past several years, my skin type is combination, with an oily T-Zone but dry/normal everywhere else. If I don’t use the correct products for me, my forehead area will get more oily throughout the day and will cause a breakout of spots. I think it’s essential to find a face cream that doesn’t cause this to happen. It’s an important step to complete your skin care routine and I have been benefiting from Derm Solutions™ Lightweight Hydrating Lotion

Formulated with a triple combination of Ceramides, Niacinamide, and Adaptogens (a trio of key ingredients which No7 calls Adaptopro Complex™), and thanks to the science behind it, it keeps shine away from my T-Zone whilst hydrating the other areas of my face.

Normal skin:

What is normal skin? It’s balanced skin with minimal blemishes, smooth texture, and can usually use most products without experiencing a flare up. But even though you may have minimal problems with normal skin and is usually quite easy to look after, it doesn’t mean slacking off on your daily routine. 

No7 Derm Solutions has a product for every skin type – so whether you have normal, dry, oily, combination or sensitive skin – you can begin your new skincare journey and be on the path to healthier-looking skin in just 4 weeks, a proven result as substantiated by consumer trials.

This range is available on No7 online.
