Skin Matters...Your Skin Type and Your Melted Match!

Updated: Aug 5, 2023

It’s important to remember that our skin can change a bit with changing seasons or with age. Once you identify your skin type, taking care of it becomes easier. Balanced skin is beautiful skin. Stay hydrated and keep your skin healthy!

Dry, Oily, Combination or Sensitive?

Dry Skin: If your skin feels stretched or flaky through the day, you have dry skin. It could be largely due to genetics, environmental factors such as lifestyle and diet, hormonal changes, and climate. If you aren’t used to drinking sufficient water in a day, it can make a significant difference to the way your skin feels and looks.

Glycerin is the best moisturizer for dry skin. A glycerin-based soap is potent in humectant, a substance with the ability to draw in moisture and keep it locked in. Using a loofah can help scrub away dead cells without being abrasive. If you have a desk job that requires sitting in front of the screen for long periods, try using massage soaps in glycerin to soothe tired muscles.

Normal/Combination Skin: If you experience dryness on the cheeks and, say, an oily T-zone, you may have combination skin, making it important to find a light moisturizer. Those with normal skin type are not prone to breakouts and usually have a well-moisturized T-zone as well. This skin type may experience some changes with the change of seasons.

If you have a normal/combination skin type, you can use shea butter soaps rich in fatty acids similar to the skin’s natural oil and even goat milk or camel milk soaps if you’re looking at something restorative, for fine lines and aging skin.

Oily Skin: If your pores feel clogged and your skin feels prone to hyperpigmentation, you have an oily skin type. The good news is that your skin already has natural moisture, but you only need to control sebum buildup in pores. Believe it or not, oily skin faces the same issues when it comes to the body as well. You might feel that your skin gets bumpy easily. That’s because of clogged pores that demand regular care.

One shouldn’t not moisturize thinking oily skin has enough moisture. Regular moisturization is important, irrespective, and also requires gentle scrubbing. Antibacterial essential oils such as tea tree and charcoal can help keep bacteria growth and excess oil at bay. Soaps with clay can help with the oil balance.

A note for sensitive skin beauties: Managing sensitive skin is challenging, as you still need to cater to your primary skin type, which is either dry, combination or oily. To accustom your skin to any new product, go easy. Use one product at a time, and when it comes to picking a soap, say, if you have oily-sensitive skin, you could use a green tea or charcoal soap instead of tea tree that’s intrinsically stronger. You could do so once you feel the base, say, Glycerin or Shea, suits your skin and is moisturizing enough without leading to any irritation.

You could begin by patch testing a new formula of a soap on your inner forearm. Look for labels that identify formulas as non-irritating and non-sensitizing and free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA or TEA, as these ingredients can result in redness and itchiness. Melted has a variety of soaps that cater to all skin types and are free of irritation-causing agents.
