Skin Types

Blemished, sensitive, dry, oily & combination skin.


We're all different, but we all want to care for our skin – here's how.

 

Blemished Skin

A blemish is an imperfection on the skin that can be caused by a number of biological and environmental factors like an unhealthy diet, genetics, and stress.

Blemishes can present themselves in different ways; they can be dark marks, discoloration, and acne scars.

If you have a blemished skin, you will see dark marks or discoloration on your skin. You may also have scars left behind from acne, whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples.

Unfortunately, genetics play a big role in whether or not you will have a blemished skin. Fluctuating hormones also contribute to blemishes within the skin, particularly in pregnant and menstruating women. A blemished skin may also be caused by allergic reactions and overexposure to environmental elements.

If you struggle to maintain a balanced diet and don't take in enough water each day, it may be causing skin blemishes. An incorrect skincare routine or lack of routine all together may also cause blemishes in your skin.

Sensitive Skin

Skin sensitivity is quite common and can be brought on by a number of things.

Hormonal changes in the body, using harsh chemical products, and prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can all cause a person’s skin to become sensitive over time.

You may be diagnosed with a sensitive skin if your skin is very dry.

A dry skin is more susceptible to sensitivity triggers and thus more prone to reactions. Your skin is also likely to feel itchy and tight; you may even feel burning or stinging. If your skin is sensitive, you may also see red patches or rashes.

If you have a skin disorder such as eczema or allergic contact dermatitis, you probably have sensitive skin.

Most of the time a sensitive skin is triggered by the incorrect use of skincare products or the use of harsh household products.

If you know that you have a sensitive skin type, our day spa in Polokwane stocks a range of skincare products that have been specifically designed for sensitive skin. Below is a selection of these products - all products are available through the online store.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is easily treatable but can be extremely uncomfortable when left unattended. People with dry skin lack natural oil produced by the skin and therefore need to supplement it. In some cases, dry skin can eventually start peeling, itching, and bleeding.

Your skin will have more visible lines and red patches as well as it being less elastic. If your skin is very dry, it can become rough and scaly. Your skin may still feel dehydrated shortly after cleansing, which makes you want to reach for your moisturiser Genes, aging, hormonal changes, and harsh weather can either cause dry skin or make it worse. It is also normal for your skin to change throughout the year; you may find that you only have dry skin in winter, while it's normal for the rest of the year.

If your skin is dry you should have almost invisible pores and a rough, dull complexion.

Oily and Combination Skin

Combination skin is skin that presents as dry in some areas of the face and oily in others (usually the T-zone).

Oily or combination skin can present with large, open pores which lead to shiny skin, blackheads, pimples, and other blemishes. The T-zone generally has more active oil glands – which is why it is prone to blocked pores. If you have a combination skin, the other areas of your face will have less active oil glands which is why they may appear dry and flaky. Because your skin changes seasonally and hormonally, you may even notice your skin is oilier in summer and drier in winter. For combination skin, you may see the oily t-zone appear in autumn and spring.

If you have an oily or combination skin type, you may see your nose, forehead and chin (T-zone) be excessively oily.

If your skin is sensitive, you may also see red patches or rashes.
