Your skin is the foundation of your appearance. It is the first thing that people see when they look at you, and it is your first line of defense against the wear and tear of everyday life. As such, you want to make sure that your skin is resilient by keeping it healthy, hydrated, and well-maintained as much as possible.
You may wonder what exactly is a resilient skin? Do you have resilient skin? Resilient skin is the idea that your skin can recover from damage or injury more quickly than average.
In this blog, we will discuss two different types of resilient skin: dry and oily. Our skincare experts have provided detailed insight on dry and oily resilient skin, as each has its own benefits and setbacks. We encourage you to continue reading to learn and better understand your skin type.
Dry resilient skin is a type of skin that easily recovers from wounds and blemishes but lacks moisture because sebum production has not yet started at full speed. Dry resilient skin is usually found on babies, young children, and people who live in cold, dry climates. The skin is thin and delicate but has a strong ability to heal itself.
Oily resilient skin is a type of skin that easily recovers from wounds and blemishes, but it produces too much sebum. Oily resilient skin is usually found on teenagers, young adults, and people who live in warm, humid climates. The hormones are actively producing sebum at full speed, leading to the overproduction of oil on your face.
The easiest way to distinguish between dry and oily skin is by looking at your t-zone. The t-zone is the area of your face that includes your forehead, nose, and chin. If you have an oily t-zone, you likely have oily resilient skin. If you have a dry t-zone, you likely have dry resilient skin.
However, there are other ways to distinguish between dry and oily resilient skin. Dry resilient skin has wrinkles that are etched into the surface of your face, whereas oily resilient skin is more prone to having blemishes like blackheads or pimples.
Another way you can tell if you have dry or oily resilient skin is by looking at the pores on your face. If your pores are large and open, you have oily resilient skin. If your pores are small and closed, you have dry resilient skin.
Regardless of whether you have dry or oily resilient skin, there are steps that you can take to improve the health of your skin.
If you have dry resilient skin, you should use a gentle cleanser that does not contain soap. You should also use a moisturizer every day, and you may want to consider using a humidifier in your home. Also, consider using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
If you have oily resilient skin, you should use a cleansing gel or foam to remove the excess oil from your face. You should also use a moisturizer every day, but you may want to choose an oil-free formulation.
Regardless of your skin type, it is important that you wear sunscreen when in the sun and always remove your makeup at night. You should also wash off any dirt or pollution from your face after being outside for prolonged periods.
