Skin Types Overview
No skin is equal. Every skin has its own natural strength, has its own sensitivity and strong and less strong qualities. It is important to know what your skin type needs and to carefully adjust your facial care. Read on and discover what skin type you have.
Which Skin Type Do You Have?
The Normal Skin
This skin type feels soft and supple. The pores are visible, but not widened. The normal skin has a uniform, matte gloss.
Almost 25% of all people have dry skin. The skin is often thin. The pores are barely visible and the skin produces little sebum. In the dehydrated skin wrinkles and drying, lines are formed quickly. The skin feels tense and rough. There is a disturbed skin barrier (= a damaged hydro-lipid layer) and/or shortage of Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), says the natural moisture level of the skin. Dry skin can also quickly appear irritated, scaly and red.
Many people have a combination of skin types. For example, the skin on the cheeks can be dry while the T-zone glows because an excess of sebum (sebum) is produced there.
The Sensitive Skin
When using bad cosmetics and too much sunlight, this skin type will quickly become irritated. The sensitive skin often looks scaly, spotty and red. The sensitive skin is usually also very dry. People with sensitive skin often respond strongly to weather changes.
The oily skin often glints, especially on the nose, the forehead and the chin, the T-zone. The pores are enlarged, and there is too much sebum secretion. The skin suffers from blackheads and suddenly breaking out pimples. The complexion is usually pale and faded. The advantage of this skin type is that wrinkling occurs less quickly. Oily skin is thicker than normal or dry skin.
The Mature Skin
This skin type is caused by the effects of aging. The skin becomes drier, thinner and wrinkles develop faster. It is often difficult to indicate when you can speak of a more mature skin. There is no fixed age indication for it. It can vary greatly from person to person at what age the aging occurs. It depends on skin condition, lifestyle and skin care. Moreover, one must accept that one becomes a day older. As a rule, we speak of a more mature skin from the age of 35-45 years.
Is Your Skin Dry Or Dehydrated?
There is a big difference between dry and dehydrated skin, while they actually feel the same: dry. What is the difference?
Dry Skin: is a skin type and is genetically determined: you either have it or not. Dry skin is characterized by a shortage of sebum (fat) and feels dry everywhere, including on hands and scalp. In addition, the skin is prone to premature aging. Dry skin has constant nutritional needs and there is a need for very oil-rich products
Low-Moisture Skin: is a skin condition and can occur in everyone. A dehydrated skin is characterized by a lack of water and can feel greasy and dry at the same time. Depending on various factors, such as environment and nutrition, you may suffer from dehydrated skin. Ensure the use of moisturizing products.
Influence Of The Seasons On Your Skin
The changing of the seasons and the weather conditions can change your skin type and your skin condition. Many people have drier skin in autumn and winter than in summer. They then need fuller, more nourishing skin care products during these seasons.

Care of the skin is a combination of proper cleaning and care tailored to your skin type. Clean skin is better able to absorb active ingredients from nourishing creams. As the skin ages, the normal skin will become drier and call for more specific Anti Age care. Also, normal skin depending on the seasons can get more needs for more intensive hydration and nutrition.

Sensitive Skin Overview
Sensitive Skin – Everyone has sensitive skin to some degree. This means that the skin perceives stimuli from the outside. When the skin is more out of balance than usual, this can lead to hypersensitivity and minor irritations.
How Do You Recognize Sensitive Skin?
Sensitive skin is thin and fine in structure. A sensitive reaction often manifests itself in pulling, redness, itching, burning, tingling, flaky spots or dry skin. If you regularly have this kind of reactions, you have a sensitive skin.
How Does Sensitive Skin Develop?
There are all kinds of causes for sensitive skin. Normal weather conditions such as sun, cold and wind can already trigger a sensitive reaction. This also applies to ingredients in personal care products such as perfume, alcohol or dyes. Foods can also cause the skin to become irritated. Sensitive skin requires extra care that can restore the natural balance of the skin.
How Can You Best Care For Sensitive Skin?
To reduce the risk of sensitive reactions, it is essential to provide your sensitive skin with proper care and protection.
Take care of your skin with products that are allergen-, alcohol- and soap-free.
Clean your skin with a cleaning product that is hypoallergenic and does not contain perfume, alcohol or soap.
Care for sensitive skin with a day cream that protects the skin from external influences and a night cream that restores and strengthens the skin at night so that sensitive skin is more resistant to external influences during the day.
Cleaning The Impure Skin
A good cleaning is essential. Only clean skin is able to absorb active substances from skin care properly. Clean the sensitive skin twice a day in a mild way. This way day and night cream can do their work optimally. Clearpores Micellar water has been specially developed to gently cleanse the skin and remove make-up. Do you prefer to clean your skin with water? Use Clearpores Skin Care, which thanks to the mild ingredients are extremely suitable for very sensitive skin. Does your skin react hypersensitively? Then bring the cleansing of your face back to once a day (only in the evening) to give your skin a rest. Wash your face with lukewarm water in the morning.
Start a Food Diary – Foods affect your appearance and therefore also your skin. If you are not sure what causes your sensitive skin, keep a food diary with the foods you are consuming and note each time the reaction occurs. Consult a doctor or dermatologist for further research and a specialist skin advice.
Test Your Care Products – Sometimes a certain care product can also be the cause of sensitive skin. Keep track of which cosmetic products you use to find out if your skin might respond to one of these products.
Check for a (Skin) Allergy – Red rash on your face when you get up in the morning? Check whether you are not allergic to the detergent that you use for your bedding. Or that you suffer from skin irritation.
Dry Skin Overview
Dry skin has lost the natural ability to function properly and can, therefore, feel rough, taut and uncomfortable. Targeted daily skin care can ensure that the natural protective layer of your skin recovers.
How Do You Recognize Dry Skin?
Dry skin produces little skin fat and can, therefore, be sensitive.
Often dry skin feels tense or rough.
The dry skin may look irritated, scaly or red.
Very fine lines are often visible on the skin, this is also called drying lines.
The face can feel rubbery instead of soft and supple.
Because of the particularly fine structure, the pores are almost invisible on dry skin.
How Does Dry Skin Develop?
Dry skin is caused by a disturbed skin barrier. The skin can not sufficiently store its moisture supply because this skin type does not contain enough skin fats. This makes the skin more easily permeable to water and the moisture balance gets out of balance, causing the skin to dry out quickly.
How Can You Best Care For Dry Skin?
Dry skin not only has a shortage of moisture but also fat. It is therefore important to use products that have been specially developed for this skin type. Products that are suitable for dry skin on your face not only provide the skin with moisture but these products also ensure that the skin also receives sufficient fats.
Cleaning the Skin
When the dry skin is regularly washed with a normal soap, the skin is indeed clean, but also literally ‘degreased’: the skin fats are washed away by the soap. As a result, moisture in the skin can evaporate more easily and the (facial) skin will only feel drier and drier. For this type of skin, therefore, choose a mild cleansing product that does not dry out the skin and prevents very dry or extremely dry skin.
Care Products For Dry Skin
To take care of a dry face, preferably use a special cleansing product in combination with a nourishing cream that supports the natural regenerative capacity of the skin.
The cleaning products from Clearpores are specially developed to clean the face in a gentle way without drying the skin. The Clearpores Cleansing System is specially developed for dry & Sensitive Skin. The extra soft, creamy formula ensures that the skin is cleaned in a gentle and effective way without drying the face.

Fat Skin Overview
Oily skin is often a direct result of increased sebum production. A greasy facial skin can be very annoying, especially when it appears in pimples, blackheads or a shiny face. With the right skin care, you can prevent oily skin or a shiny face.
How Do You Recognize Oily Skin?
Oily skin often looks shiny, especially around the nose, the chin and the forehead, also called T-zone.
Blackheads or pimples are often visible on the skin, especially on the nose, chin, and forehead.
The skin often feels greasy and it gets worse during the day.
With oily skin, makeup often remains difficult.
How Does Oily Skin Develop?
Oily skin can have various causes. It can be predisposed, but also the hormonal changes such as fluctuations during puberty, use of contraception or pregnancy can contribute to oily skin. Oily skin often shows impurities. This is caused by too high a sebum production, which prevents the skin from being able to process the abundance of sebum. The pores are dilated and quickly clogged. This way pimples or blackheads can easily arise.
How Can You Best Care For Oily Skin?
It is important to balance the oily skin. Take care not to care for skin with products that dry out or irritate the skin. At first, they give you the feeling that they are helping the skin, but in the long run such products will make skin greasy.
Cleaning The Oily Facial Skin
A good cleaning is very important for oily skin. Do not choose aggressive soap products. These stimulate the sebaceous glands extra so that the skin becomes even fatter. Clean oily skin both in the morning and in the evening with a mildly water-soluble cleanser such as the Clearpores Face Gel or Cream.
