Les différents types de peaux

The different skin types

The different skin types

Our skins are all different for various reasons. Learn more about the different skin types!

The most superficial layer is called theepidermis, it protects the skin thanks to the hydrolipidic protective film composed of water and lipids. This lipid in question is in fact the sebum.

In this layer, are also present the keratinocytes as well as the ceramides. Keratinocytes have a protective function, as for ceramides, they have a structural and moisturizing role.

Just below, we find the melanocytes which absorb UV from the sun and give color to the skin.

The underlying layer is called the dermis. In particular, there are fibroblasts which create collagen fibers, elastin and chains of hyaluronic acid. These three proteins are responsible for the elasticity and firmness of the skin.

 dry skin

This type of skin tends to be irritated and show redness. It's because she lack of sebum and/or ceramides, which causes a breakdown of the skin barrier and makes the skin permeable. This can be due to several factors such as heredity, the maturity of the skin, certain diseases, adverse effects of a drug (against acne for example), hormones, but also external aggressions such as photoaging, cold, dry air...

The small difference between dry skin And dehydrated skin, is that dehydrated skin loses more water from the epidermis than it receives from the dermis. It is therefore also less elastic and tight, but this is a temporary problem that will be resolved with the same moisturizing care than dry skin.

 How do I treat my dry skin?

Dry skin is often dehydrated. It should be treated as such. To begin, very gently, with goodhydrate. For that, we have what you need! THE acid masks hyaluronic from Croma, composed of 100% synthetic silk, are able to deeply moisturize, refresh the skin and give a radiant and luminous complexion, with a bonus a moment of rest and relaxation.

In addition, this type of sensitive skin also needs to be gently cleansed. You should therefore avoid tap water and use textures such as milk instead. It is also recommended to avoid rinsing and to remove excess milk with a mist.

The creams that can be recommended are those based on oil or ceramide. The same goes for serums, at Croma, such as the Croma Farewell – Irritated Skin, a pearl for dry skin! A unique and delicate serum, highly moisturizing and antioxidant that will soothe your irritations, reduce your redness and strengthen your skin barrier.

normal skin

As its name suggests, it is the one who has no problem and who is balanced. This is ideal skin that is neither too oily nor too dry. Make-up removal can be done with oils or with micellar water and will be followed by cleansing.

combination skin

Combination skin produces too much sebum on the zone T and not enough on the cheeks. It therefore requires a different treatment on these two areas, namely hydration on the dry areas (the cheeks) and a treatment to balance the sebum on the T zone.zone-t

How do I treat my combination skin?

She will need, for example, a clay mask on the T-zone and a nourishing treatment on the cheeks.

It will be a question of drawing from the appropriate care for dry skin, for example:2% hyaluronic acid from MCCM that we will apply on the cheeks only.
As for the T zone, we will apply, for example, vitamins A, very effective for oily and/or prone skin acne.

oily skin

The major problem of oily skin is that it produces too much sebum, which causes clogging of the skin pores and as a result pimples, blackheads and visibly enlarged pores. Hyperseborrhea is often due to hormones, but also to external factors that can aggravate theacne as :

  • A diet that is too sweet and/or too rich in dairy products
  • The stress
  • The heat
  • The alcohol

How do I treat my oily skin?

Because of that excessive sebum production, it needs a specific treatment, namely products with a light texture. However, you should not forget to moisturize your skin, because even for oily skin, it remains essential, you will have to choose moisturizing products, non-comedogenic.

Then, your selection will be made on products capable of eliminating excess sebum.

We can offer you a perfectly formulated serum with the aim of unclogging your pores and limiting blemishes: Croma Farewell – Oily Skin as well as a very effective serum provided in combination with a microneedling session: Stayve AC Stem Cell Gold.

Acne-prone skin also needs to be cleansed and purified deeply; as such, for make-up removal, favor micellar water and for cleansing in order to effectively unclog pores, choose a care with glycolic acid or a purifying gel.

What about mature skin then?

In mature skin, the production of collagen and elastin decreases which can cause dryness cutaneous, a loss of elasticity, firmness and will result in the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines.

The preferred active ingredients will be those with lifting and/or moisturizing properties, such as collagen, hyaluronic acid or DMAE, argireline or elastin.

For example, the serum of Croma Farewell – Aging Skin contains hyaluronic acid, it represents an excellent solution, to be applied daily to reduce the signs of aging and restore elasticity to the skin.

In addition, it also happens that with age, there is an alteration of the melanocytes, which leads to pigment spots as well as discolorations. In prevention, it is advisable to apply antioxidants (such as vitamin A, C or E) and sunscreen such as Sun Cream 50+ from MCCM.
