Skin Talk: Knowing Your Type

Now that summer’s over, it’s time to let our skin heal and recover from all the damaging effects of having fun under the sun. But before we help you out in figuring out the correct products to use, it’s important to identify your skin type. Knowing about your skin type is the first step to everything skincare-related as it is an important factor in choosing the appropriate products that will give you the best results.

Take our quiz below to find out your type!

Got your results? Time to learn more about your skin and our products that will suit your type!

NORMAL

Congratulations! Having normal skin is pretty much the same as having the perfect skin, but this doesn’t mean that you can forget about skincare. Taking care of one’s skin should still be a priority even if you have a normal skin type.

PRODUCT RECOS:

The great thing about having normal skin is that you’re free to try pretty much any skincare product, depending on the result you’d like to achieve.

White Wedding Line

If you’d like to get brighter, lighter skin tone then go for the White Wedding skincare line. Each product from this line is infused with the White Bouquet Flower Complex which keep the skin radiant and moisturized.

Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Line

Having normal skin might seem a dream come true, but on certain seasons the skin might tend to dry up a bit. To further nourish the skin, going for the Miss Flower & Mr. Honey line might be the perfect way to go. Careful though, if you suffered from allergic reactions from products containing beeswax or honey you might want to skip on this one.

Miss Water & Mr. Oil Line

Keep your skin refreshed and well-hydrated with this cooling product line which has a very relaxing sensation on the skin! Perfect for summer time!

OILY

If your face tends to oil up almost immediately even after washing, then you definitely have oily skin. When the skin excretes an excess amount of sebum, acne and breakouts may occur. To prevent this from happening, always use products that will deeply cleanse your pores.

PRODUCT RECOS:

Clean It Zero Fresh Foam Cleanser

As mentioned earlier, cleansing your face does miracles. To remove make-up residue and dirt (which causes breakouts), use a gentle yet effective foam cleanser. Clean It Zero Fresh Foam Cleanser contains Resveratrol, Polyphenol and Grape Seed extracts which help the skin become healthier while removing excess sebum accumulated throughout the day.

Miss Water & Mr. Oil SLM Toner and Miss Water & Mr. Oil SLM Gel Cream

     

When dealing with oily skin, it’s best to stick with skincare products which are thin in consistency and lightweight in general. Despite having oil bursts, Miss Water & Mr. Oil SLM products won’t contribute to the oiliness of your skin. In fact, it refreshes the skin and retains moisture without overdoing it. In short, it’s the perfect after-summer item to help your skin recover from the sun’s damaging effects!

The Blacks Heating Gel Mask Volcano

Open up those pores and detoxify them with this skin superhero! This wash-off mask contains volcano ingredients which remove skin impurities which tend to clog pores. It has a relaxing warm sensation on the skin when applied which in turn, regulates blood circulation as well.

The Blacks Cooling Clay Mask Ice

Another skin superhero that will rescue you from unwanted shine! This clay mask is made out of Canadian colloidal clay which absorbs excess sebum. This may be applied on the entire face or on areas which gathers the most oil.

DRY

Those with dry skin often experience tightness and flakiness. There’s also a bit of roughness in some areas. Since those with dry skin are prone to peeling, itchiness may also be experienced. So for those with this skin type, make water and moisturizers your best friend.

PRODUCT RECOS:

The Blacks Hydrating Gel Mask Bamboo

This overnight sleeping pack is gel-cream in formula and has a lightweight consistency which provides dry skin with intense hydration. It contains black bamboo ingredients which soothes and calms the skin while giving it moisture.

Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Toner and Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream

Honey isn’t just something you use in the kitchen, it’s also an effective skincare ingredient! Both the toner and cream contain honey, propolis and royal jelly— all of which work to nourish the skin and keep it well moisturized. Honey is also known to be an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient so it’s perfect for those with peeling skin.

Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Essence Stick

We know it’s difficult to achieve a flawless foundation finish when you have rough and patchy skin. To prevent your dry skin from ruining your base make-up, try retouching with this essence stick which may also be used as a lip balm. Simply dab on the rough, patchy areas of the skin before reapplying a little bit of foundation and you’re done!

SENSITIVE

Those with sensitive skin often experience acne breakouts and redness all over the face. It can really be stressful dealing with sensitive skin since not all skincare products might work for you. To take care of acne-prone skin, stick to gentle products that would soothe your skin.

PRODUCT RECOS:

Clean It Zero Purity

A make-up remover that’s gentle yet highly effective. Clean It Zero Purity has a greenish pigment which helps tone down the redness of the face due to acne. Always remove your make-up at the end of the day to prevent more breakouts from occurring.

Clean It Zero Foam Cleanser

This foam cleanser will deeply cleanse your skin of excess make-up and impurities which may cause breakouts. However, it doesn’t leave the skin feeling tight and dry unlike other foam cleansers.

White Wedding True Bright Toner

A lightweight toner with a brightening effect that also lightens dark spots with continued use. So, if you’ve been dealing with acne scars and dark spots due to your sensitive skin, this toner might be something you’d like to try.

The Blacks Mild Moisture Mask Berry

This overnight cream contains yogurt and blackberry, both of which are ingredients to keep your skin nourished and moisturized. These ingredients are also gentle enough to soothe sensitive skin.

AGING

You might be just in your 20’s but that doesn’t make you an exception to aging skin. There are a lot of factors that we encounter everyday that cause our skin to prematurely age, like staying under the sun for a long period of time. Even at a young age, it’s better to start paying extra attention to your skin to battle the early signs of skin aging. After all, prevention is always better than cure!

PRODUCT RECOS:

Clean It Zero Resveratrol

Not only is this Clean It Zero variant ideal for those with oily skin, but it also helps keep the skin firm and tight. This make-up remover contains Resveratrol, an antioxidant ingredient found in wine. It lifts your skin up and keeps it firm and youthful.

V-V Vitalizing Serum

This serum contains collagen water which lifts the skin up and prevents it from further sagging. It also minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which are early signs of skin aging.

It Radiant Sleeping Pack

Proper moisture is a huge factor in keeping the skin youthful, therefore, packing your skin with hydration is very important. The It Radiant Sleeping Pack is a lightweight overnight treatment which keeps the skin soft and supple.

White Wedding Dream Cream

Having radiant skin is probably one of the many characteristics of having healthy, youthful skin. To give you that instant boost of brightness, use the White Wedding Dream Cream as a day moisturizer before applying your base make-up. It also contains niacinamide, a whitening ingredient which effectively lightens dark spots and blemishes with continued use.
