How to Target Your Skin Type

Diversity is celebrated within the beauty industry. Whether you have brown, hazel, gray, green or blue eyes, certain makeup products can make your eyes stand out even more and accentuate the beauty that is uniquely yours. The same applies to foundation shades and skincare is no different. Knowing your skin type can make it easier for you to find OFRA’s perfect solutions for any skincare issue and also create a smooth, silky base for makeup application.

Here are the various skin types and OFRA remedies:

Oily skin

Do you have oily or acne prone skin? A multi-faceted approach to problem areas can nix acne before it begins. You need an antioxidant to calm inflammation like Green Tea. “It’s great for acne-prone skin because it decreases sebum production, inflammation and bacterial growth,” says NYC dermatologist Marnie Nussbaum.

Your OFRA oily skin solutions:

  • Vitamin C Cleanser is used for washing the face morning and evening to prevent breakouts while speeding healing.
  • Acne Treatment Cream is applied during the day over erupted areas to heal pimples and reduce eruptions.
  • Acne Treatment Mask is a fast working mask that prevents pimples.
Fruit Acid Lotion contains Green Tea extract that is ideal for balancing oil secretion and reducing imperfections.

Oil Free Moisturizer is a rich antioxidant formula that absorbs instantly to provide the oil free hydration you need for healthy, supple and vibrant skin.  

Dry skin

If you have a dry complexion, you should look for hydrating products infused with Vitamin B ingredients like Niacinimide, a potent antioxidant in the vitamin B group. Nussbaum says, “It protects the skin barrier and also increases ceramide and free fatty acid production, so it plumps and hydrates skin.”

Your OFRA dry skin solutions:

  • B5 Serum has ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid to fix dehydration immediately. It seals the skin and locks in moisture. It should be used all over the face, neck and eye areas. With continued use, you will notice smoother, finer and more hydrated skin.
  • Advanced Vitamin C Cream is an anti-aging and concentrated moisturizer with SPF 20. This cream helps reduce pigmentation from excessive sun exposure and repairs skin damage.
  • Moisture Repair Mask instantly hydrates and refines lines. It is formulated for maximum comfort and this mask will absorb within 10 minutes of application. It can also be used after sun exposure and for men after shaving.
Hydra-Nourishing Body Lotion is a rich and luxurious lotion is designed for all skin types. Shea Butter and Sodium Hyaluronate keep your skin moisturized, soft and supple. This formula will reduce and repair issues such as pregnancy stretch marks through its hydrating qualities. It also prevents loose connections between elastin and collagen fibers which can lead to dry, flaky skin with stretch marks.

Combo skin

Salicylic or Glycolic Acid-based cleansers work best for combination skin types. Both ingredients work as chemical exfoliants that clear skin without stripping your skin's natural oils. The duo is ideal for cutting through build-up, removing dirt and product residue. It’s best to experiment to see what works for your skin but you can try using the pair once a day. If your skin is sensitive, choose one or the other. Less sensitive types can use the combo both morning and night.

Your OFRA combo skin solutions:

Acne Treatment Cream to use during the day over erupted areas to heal pimples and reduce eruptions.
 
  • Oil Free Moisturizer is a rich antioxidant formula that absorbs instantly to provide the oil free hydration you need for healthy, supple and vibrant skin.
  • Vitamin C Cleanser is used for washing the face morning and evening to prevent breakouts while speeding healing.
  • Soft Pearl Peel to use twice weekly to reduce black heads, pigmentation and remove dead skin cells, leaving skin fresh and clean.
Vitamin A & C Peel Off Mask has active ingredients such as Glycolic Acid, Lemon extract, Caviar and Tomato extract that reduce pigmentation and the appearance of lines. It also minimizes large pores and controls oil secretion.

Normal skin

Normal skin can benefit from specific products geared for this skin care type.

Sensitive skin types can also use the Normal Skin Care Kit, along with other helpful products.

Your OFRA sensitive skin solutions:

Q10 Cream is formulated for the most sensitive skin types including dry, normal and combination. This cream reduces irritation, moisturizes and contains anti-aging ingredients like Q10 Enzymes and Vegetable Growth Hormone to provide skin regeneration, hydration and firming.

Hydra-Nourishing Body Lotion is a rich and luxurious lotion is designed for all skin types. Shea Butter and Sodium Hyaluronate keep your skin moisturized, soft and supple. This formula will reduce and repair issues such as pregnancy stretch marks through its hydrating qualities. It also prevents loose connections between elastin and collagen fibers which can lead to dry, flaky skin with stretch marks.

Soft Pearl Peel is a gentle and effective exfoliating cream for the face and neck and is excellent for all skin types. Avoid rough friction movements on acne skin when using this product. This peel can be used wet or dry and will leave skin looking clear, clean and smooth. Soft Pearl Peel will also reduce pigmentation, remove dead skin cells, and eliminate black heads.
