Which Skin Type Are You?
Have you ever had problems trying to find the correct products for your skin. Here are Platinum’s tips on how to establish which skin type you really are.
If you have a combination skin, your skin will tend to be unbalanced, you may have an oily T-zone (nose, forehead and chin) and dry patches of skin on your cheeks. People with combination skin are more prone to congestion and blemishes particularly on the jawline, under cheek bones and on the chin area. Skin may break out occasionally and can tend to look dull, sallow, lifeless and unbalanced. Combination skin can be accompanied by an overall feeling of sluggishness and exhaustion. Platinum Skin Centre recommend La Clinica’s HOMESPA Range (for more information look under the product section) and our Purifying Spa Facial.
If you have an oily/ance prone skin, your skin will tend to suffer from break outs, blackheads and excessive oiliness. An oily skin can also be sensitive to external factors. A lot of the time the excessive oiliness and sensitivity can be caused by incorrect product use. Platinum Skin Centre recommend La Clinica’s Clear Skin Range (for more information look under the product section) and Rebalancing and Purifying Facials.
Sensitive skin is prone to redness, irritation, flakiness, inflammation and itchiness. Sensitive skin conditions include roscea, dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema. This sensitivity may be caused by an environmental factor or could be a genetic predisposition and can occur at any age. Platinum Skin Centre recommend La Clinica’s Sensitive Range (for more information look under the product section) and our Anti Stress Facial.
This skin will be showing signs of aging, loss of skin tone, premature wrinkles, dryness, dehydration, dullness and sun damage. Skin renewal and moisture levels start to drop from the age of 25 with the first visible signs of aging around the eyes. Mature and dry skin needs specific treatments, extra nourishment and protection. Platinum Skin Centre recommend La Clinica’s Anti Aging or Firming Lift Ranges (for more information look under the product section) and our range of anti aging facials.
This skin type may have fine lines, millia, blackheads,enlarged pores, acne pitting and uneven skin colouring. This skin type is a result of environmental damage, chemical damage, incorrect product use, acne scarring and excessive sun exposure. Platinum Skin Centre recommend the La Clinica Gly C range (for more information look under the product section) and the GLY C facial rejuvenation peels.
Men’s skin may react to shaving by becoming red and sore and sometimes causes a spot like rash. Men’s skin can be further aggravated by time spend outdoors and an active lifestyle. As a result men’s skin can show signs of stress and pre mature aging and will be in need of extra protection and replenishment. La Clinica have developed a unique range specifically for men’s skin and shaving needs (for more information look under the product section). Platinum Skin Centre offer a great range of men’s facial treatments.
