Congratulations - you have normal skin. Many people will envy you because this skin type is as rare as it is uncomplicated. Normal skin has a balanced lipid content and the skin barrier is largely intact. In addition, it usually has fine pores and a uniformly fresh to rosy complexion thanks to good blood circulation.
Lines and wrinkles are visible signs of skin ageing. The causes for this lie on the one hand in the intrinsic (genetically determined) ageing of the skin, but also in our own behaviour: UV radiation, alcohol and cigarette smoke are external factors that accelerate the ageing process of the skin. You will learn below how to slow down this process through targeted care.
Your skin is also dehydrated, i.e. lacking moisture. This means that the skin's own moisture cannot be retained well. For this reason, moisturising from the outside is especially important. We have taken this into account in our product recommendations below.
In general, normal skin requires fewer steps than other skin types. Cleanse your skin in the morning with clear water - this is usually sufficient. In the evening, use a mild cleansing product to remove fine dust, sweat and make-up.
Cleansing is followed by care, usually two products are sufficient for normal skin: Use a moisturising product (see steps 2 or 3 of our product suggestions below) and a moisturiser on top. This contains UV filters during the day and soothing ingredients at night.
Pronounced lines and deep wrinkles cannot simply be "creamed away". But there is a lot that can be done to keep the first expression lines and dryness wrinkles at bay. And exactly the word "some" is the challenge, because your cooperation is needed! When choosing your skin care products, look for antioxidants, hyaluron, mild fruit acids or retinol. In addition, vitamin D in particular helps - and D as in "discipline":
Sun and cigarette smoke are ageing accelerators number 1. Consistent sun protection and abstaining from nicotine & co. do more than any single care product. Regular exercise, sufficient sleep, at least 1.5 litres of fluid intake - none of this is new and some of it is even strenuous. But it works against premature skin ageing, I promise!
Unfortunately, there is no one miracle cure for dehydrated skin - it is rather a mix of several measures that moisturise your skin.
Besides skin care, these two are the most important: Drink a lot of water (yes, this also gets into the skin) and if the air in your room is dry (due to the heating in winter or the air conditioning in summer), make sure the air is well humidified, by using room humidifiers or simply a bowl of water on the radiator.
Here, less is often more. Too much or frequent cleansing unnecessarily stresses the skin barrier and can worsen your skin's appearance in the long run. If we recommend several products at this point, you do not have to use them all together. You can find out more about the special features and the right combination on the product pages.
An often underestimated skin care step: toners or sprays moisturise the skin and make it more receptive to subsequent care products.
Regardless of the number of products suggested here, regularity is more important than frequency. If you want to combine several serums or boosters that are rich in active ingredients, you can, for example, alternate between daily and evening use.
Do not underestimate the importance of daily UV protection: UVA rays, which are primarily responsible for skin ageing, also penetrate through clouds and window panes and are present even in winter.
After the addition of active ingredients from care step 3, an appropriately rich night care is the perfect conclusion to your care routine.
By the way: If several products are listed here, these are alternative recommendations, depending on preference.
No obligation without freestyle: Here you will find products from our range for that extra portion of care or special needs.
