Which lotion should be used for normal skin types?

The selection of skincare to adopt is made according to one's skin type. Indeed, the care must meet the real needs of the skin. Does it require hydration, soothing care, or even revitalising treatments? Let's focus on the lotion to adopt for normal to combination skin.

What are the needs of normal skin?

For normal skin, the activity of the sebaceous glands is relatively balanced. They produce a sufficient amount of sebum that serves to protect the skin from drying out and from microorganisms without compromising its quality. The skin is thus soft, smooth and in good health. It can be recognised by its regular skin texture, the absence of enlarged pores and blemishes. Furthermore, normal skin is less sensitive to external aggressions (cold, heat, sun...) than other skin types.

Although normal skin is less sensitive to external aggressions, it must contend with skin ageing. Over the years, the skin regenerates less quickly, loses hydration and elasticity. Therefore, it is necessary to hydrate the skin daily and protect against free radicals to prevent skin ageing.

What are the needs of combination skin?

Combination skin has the unique characteristic of exhibiting two types of skin: oily and dry, or oily and normal. It can be identified by the shininess of the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) while the skin on the rest of the face is dry or normal. The care regimen adopted should aim to regulate sebum production, purify the oily part without drying out the rest of the face.

Like other skin types, combination skin needs to be moisturised daily to delay the appearance of ageing signs.

Which lotion for normal to combination skin?

Pollution, sun exposure, or even hormonal fluctuations can intensify shininess in the T-zone and dryness on the cheeks. Adopting a suitable routine allows for a harmonious and luminous complexion, as well as smooth skin texture. Incorporating a lotion into your daily skincare routine is advisable. It complements the action of the cleansing product while preparing the skin to absorb the active ingredients contained in the face cream or serum.

For combination to oily skin types, opt for orange blossom hydrosol. Rich in flavonoids, orange blossom hydrosol has an antioxidant action. It thus fights against free radicals and helps to prevent premature skin ageing. It also contributes to restoring radiance to the complexion and refining the skin's texture. Thanks to its regenerative properties, orange blossom hydrosol helps to tone the skin.

How to apply the lotion?

Orange blossom hydrosol should be applied to clean, dry skin, morning and/or evening using a cotton pad. Without waiting for your skin to be completely dry, apply your serum or face cream to nourish and protect the epidermis.

Opt for a hydrosol made from flowers sourced from organic farming. Perform a light massage by making circular movements with your fingers at the time of your skincare routine. This promotes the absorption of active ingredients by the skin while stimulating blood circulation.
