Normal skin is soft, smooth, supple and not prone to eruptions. It should also have a healthy glow. It requires a low-maintenance daily regime or regular cleansing and the use of a light moisturizer to keep the skin looking clear and healthy. As you grow older, normal skin can become prone to dryness and therefore requires a richer moisturizer. Many life changes can also change your skin type, for example, pregnancy, with all of its hormonal shifts, can affect your skin and cause breakouts, dryness, redness or pigment changes. This is usually temporary and using gentle products will typically resolve this.
To keep your skin looking healthy, make sure that you are adhering to a basic skin routine which includes cleansing, toning, and moisturizing twice a day, and applying a mask and exfoliating once or twice a week. Our collection of products for normal skin would do wonders for your complexion.
Exercise 4 times a week, mixing endurance and weight training to keep the blood flowing to your skin and removing toxins (use natural deodorants to ensure that your pores and sweat glands aren't clogged so toxins can freely leave your system). Eat foods with plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids like fatty fish, as well as foods with other beneficial fats and nutrients like avocados, seeds and nuts, and foods high in beta-carotene like sweet potatoes, red and yellow bell peppers, and, of course, carrots. Dark chocolate, green tea and even red wine (in moderation) can also benefit your skin!
Try to avoid major changes in your skincare routine, exercise schedule, and diet as these can affect your skin. Practice safe sun and cover up! Keep drinking to a minimum and don't smoke.
