Skin type or skin condition – what is important when it comes to care

How different skin can be can be seen again and again in the ladies' toilet – which we only use to “freshen up”, of course. And this ritual could not be more different. One generously dabs matt powder on her forehead and nose: "Hardly left the house and I'm already shining like a yeast braid again." her friend is still fishing for the concealer. "Be glad it's just that, I'm getting pimples out of nowhere." "Oh, boo..." thinks the third. In this cold air, your skin feels ultra dry. Cream and facial spray are her constant companions.

Difference between skin type and skin condition

No question, skin care wants to be type-specific. But regardless of your skin type , there are also phases in which your skin simply dances out of line. Here we are talking about the skin condition . And it fluctuates depending on the hormone balance, stress, diet and of course the climate. Sometimes the finest picture-book skin tends to dry out or "blooms" in a negative sense!
Tweaking your skin care routine can help you manage breakouts like this, too. Below you will find your skin type and links to the respective care recommendations.
