Knowing your skin type

If you want to take good care of your skin, it’s crucial to know your skin type. That way, you can choose Dermo-Cosmetics products that meet your needs and develop an effective beauty routine. How do you find out your skin type? It’s as easy as ABC!

1. Normal skin

  1. Skin is velvety and fresh
  2. Skin feels firm and comfortable
  3. Pores are normal-sized

Normal skin is soft and velvety. Skin tone and texture is even; pores are tight and barely visible. The T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) is only slightly oily, as skin’s cells are producing everything they need to stay hydrated and protected. Unfortunately, it’s rare for skin to remain normal over an entire lifetime.

Normal skin requires only a limited number of beauty products.

  • Makeup remover
  • Moisturizer
  • Sunscreen

Hydra Hyaluronic2 Highly Concentrated Moisturizing Serum, 30 ml

This cutting-edge hydrating serum offers a concentration of hyaluronic acids and Swiss glacier water whose efficacy has been clinically tested to provide a plumping effect after the very first application. It improves the skin's water balance, optimizes and reconfigures its hydration reserves and fights against the harmful effects of pollution and free radicals, especially those generated by exposure to blue light. Encasing Swiss glacier water in liposomes allows it to more effectively penetrate the skin, resulting in deep, lasting hydration. We take the skin's physiology into account when selecting all our ingredients to ensure optimal compatibility.
