FOR NORMAL SKIN
The term ‘normal’ is relative. Normal skin can become acne-prone when pores are clogged, or irritated and dry as a reaction to active ingredients such as glycolic acid or retinoids. In general, people with normal skin should focus on ingredients that repair and prevent signs of ageing. Cleanser: Even if it’s not easily irritated, normal skin isn’t extremely tough. You should treat it as if it were sensitive, using a mild foaming cleanser without harsh detergents (like sodium lauryl sulfate) that strip moisture. Day moisturiser/Sunscreen: Opt for a moisturiser in a lotion form which contains ingredients like antioxidants. When it comes to sunscreen, pick a broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion with an SPF of at least 30. Night moisturisers: Look for ingredients like antioxidants and peptides in your night moisturiser.
