Dry and/or mature skin tends to be just that – dry and thin with small or invisible pores. Common skin complaints include dehydration, tight skin, fine lines and/or wrinkles and premature aging.
Combination skin types don't struggle with overly oily or overly dry skin and typically consider themselves to have "normal" skin. When their skin is out of balance, they may experience sensitivity, breakouts, redness and/or inflammation.
Oily skin types usually have thicker skin, larger pores and are oily in the T-zone. Common skin imbalances include excessive oiliness, cystic acne and/or blackheads. If you can put a tissue anywhere on your face and absorb oil, this is your line!
NOTE: Our skin changes with the seasons, so those who are on the cusp of two skin types may need to adjust seasonally. For instance, if you are on the cusp of dry and combination skin, you may need the dry kit in the fall/winter and the combination kit in the warmer months. Feel free to contact us at info@BloomSkinEssentials.com if you need help determining which kit is best for you.
