Had you asked me this question when I was fresh out of Aesthetics school, my answer would have been, “no way!”. Because really, how can one product treat dry skin + oily skin at the same time?
In my opinion, there’s no such thing as a “skin type”, only a skin condition. Don’t get me wrong… I’ve believed in “skin types” for YEARS… until I’ve learned more about how the skin works within… much deeper than what we see. It’s my mission to undo what the beauty industry has taught us. I’m not here to make billions of $’s pointing out your insecurities. I want you to understand your skin and treat it with respect.
Whether you have excess oil or not enough oil, it does not mean your skin is failing you or that something is wrong with it. It simply means that your skin is asking for balance. If the pH level is too high, your skin will lack oil. If your pH is too low, your skin will have excess oil. NEVER should we “soak up” oil with strong ingredients or acids because that only throws the pH level off even more creating a viscous cycle. We want actual healing, inside and out, for long-term skin health. We have to stop forcing the skin with external care, and instead support it so it can function on its own like it’s meant to.
What can we do?
The skin’s pH level is around 5.5. If you use products that are pH balanced with the skin, whether you have a high pH or low, you can bring your skin into balance, meaning 1 product CAN work for all skin types. Add in powerful nutrients + essential fatty acids and you’re on your way to happier skin.
This is why I created the Skin Reset Kit! It’s a really minimalist skin care routine that will ease your skin into balance. This kit also includes FREE access to my Daily Self Massage for Healthy Skin to teach you a super effective lymph massage that you can do each day to drain excess fluid from your face (bye bye toxins) and increase blood flow to your skin (super important). Regardless of your skin goals, this skin reset will work for everyone, not by forcing your skin, but by supporting it. It’s all about encouraging the skin’s natural processes for a healthy, balanced glow. The rest of the work will all be internal, which I can also help you with 💕
