Skincare: Make beautiful, healthy skin your routine | Sephora Australia

So many things outside of our control can impact the health of our skin—pollution, climate, work-related stress. However, you can control your skincare regimen to help boost your skin’s defenses. Maintaining a healthy and happy complexion starts with knowing your skin type and which treatments it craves the most. Follow the skin care tips below to get your skin looking and feeling its best.

  • Best Skincare for Dry Skin: Soothe dry skin and restore moisture with skincare solutions that nourish, repair and revitalise. Look for cleansing oils and lotions that won’t strip your skin. Target extra-parched areas with a concentrated dose of lightweight, vitamin-rich serum or give your skin a replenishing boost with an essence or mist. Follow with a fast-acting moisturiser that works on contact while also supporting skin’s natural barrier to lock in moisture over the long run. Give your skin an intense overall moisture boost with an overnight hydration mask.

  • Best Skincare for Oily Skin: Prevent breakouts and minimize shine with products that clarify and mattify. Opt for gentle, soap-free cleansers and choose an exfoliator that unclogs pores while sloughing away dead skin cells. Tone with an antioxidant-rich toner. Even if your skin is oily, it still needs ample moisture. Choose a lightweight, hydrating gel or cream. Make sure to apply a sunscreen in the morning that’s oil-absorbing so you don’t miss out on vital sun protection.

  • Best Skincare for Combination Skin: Balance dry and oily areas with mild formulas and light textures. Look for cleansers that are soothing to prevent both irritation and moisture-loss. Use a hydrating toner all over, but target oily areas like your T-Zone with a mattifying product. Stick to liquid or gel lotions as your daily moisturiser. Always wear oil-free sunscreen to keep your face shielded without adding shine.

  • Best Skincare for Acne-Prone Skin: Detoxify with deep cleansers, spot treatments and non-aggravating makeup. Remove dirt, makeup and other pore-clogging impurities with a foam, gel or oil that cleanses deep down. If you need to zap a blemish, opt for a concentrated dose of powerful, yet soothing ingredients that can be applied directly. To treat a breakout, try full face care with a treatment that heals and relieves skin with active ingredients that aren’t overly drying. For your makeup, look for oil-free foundations and concealers that have calming benefits.

  • Best Skincare for Sensitive Skin: If you have sensitive skin, simple skincare is best. Look for mild, sensitive-safe formulas with high concentrations of natural ingredients that are rich in vitamins and nutrients. If your skin is extremely sensitive, organic skincare options might work best to get all the good stuff your skin craves without potential irritants.
