Normal


Very few people would claim that they have normal skin. Normal skin retains moisture without persistent acne, it isn't prone to the dryness and flakiness of some skin types and often avoids the oily sheen that other people face. For most, healthy skin is the ideal. It is important to remember that our complexion evolves as we grow and change. In youth, we often have perfect skin; that begins to become blemished and damaged in our teenage years, because of changing hormones and bodies. Some women continue to have blemishes or dryness into early adulthood, and for the rest of their lives, while some women will establish balance and not see any more skin issues until the next stage of life. As the skin ages, of course, it goes through another change and may become too oily or too dry again, and will require different treatments. This is all part of life, and should not be cause for alarm. A sudden shift in skin type is common and signals an internal change as well.

What does a normal complexion look like?

Babies and children often have normal skin. Some women are lucky enough to have neither too dry nor too oily skin naturally. What Normal skin is neither too dry nor too oily? It is not tight or uncomfortable, neither shiny nor dull and gray. Many women identify their skin as normal when products designed for oily skin dry out their skin and products designed for dry skin make their skin too oily. It is naturally imperfection-free, as it resists impurities and has not seen too much sun exposure. The skin in naturally even and blemish free, and it is very rare that it has a rash, pimple, or dry patch. Healthy skin regulates its moisture, so you rarely need to fix your makeup or apply more moisturizer. In short, normal skin is very easy to care for skin, and women who have normal skin are often complimented on it.

Women who have had little sun exposure and no hormonal imbalances may have a normal complexion once puberty is over. In the early twenties and thirties, before wrinkles and other signs of aging begin to appear, are the most common times for women to have normal skin. As young children, we may also have normal skin. Some very lucky women will have a balanced complexion throughout their entire lives, and will never have to worry about blemishes, discoloration, or even wrinkles until their face is very mature.

How do we achieve a "normal" complexion? Using products rich in omega-3s and natural moisturizers can help to regulate both oily and dry skin back to a more normal state. If you have sensitive skin, use skin-calming products that contain oatmeal and antioxidants, as well as collagen and other proteins that help to build and rejuvenate the look of skin. Use an effective but non-abrasive cleanser every day and get plenty of vitamin C.
