On Your Resistant Skin
Maintain a good diet. Include a healthy balance of prebiotics, such as yogurt and kombucha, and antioxidants rich foods such as fruits and vegetables.
Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary drinks which may lead to the formation of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). This could cause ageing and health related diseases such as diabetes.
Exercise when you can and get a decent amount of beauty sleep.
Your Resistant Skin Type has one significant advantage:
It is non-reactive.
This means you can experiment with different products without many setbacks.
All ingredients work for Resistant Skin Types
You can tolerate fragrant skin creams, most types of ingredients, and preservatives. If you do develop a reaction to the suggested ingredients, you may turn out to be more of a Sensitive Skin Type.
Your Skin Type proves why “one size fits all” skin care can never work. While Sensitive Skin Types need to calm skin reactivity, you would need products and ingredients that can be intense enough to work on your Resistant Skin Type.
Your Resistant Skin Type might be perceived by the skincare industry and your friends to be “easy”, but with multiple skin problems, your resistant skin can prove to be tough to maintain.
The Best Combination: Resistant & Oily Skin
It will be an additional plus if your Skin Type is both Resistant and Oily.
Your skin’s strong barrier does a fantastic job of keeping out irritating ingredients.
The only disadvantage is that it keeps out all ingredients, even the beneficial ones your skin needs.
Typical skincare products are formulated with a lower percentage of active ingredients. This is to ensure that even those with very sensitive skin can safely use it. This prevents any potential complaints of any consumer reacting adversely to it.
Even though you are blessed with resistant skin, do not start to soak your skin in acids or ultra-harsh ingredients continuously to see if it will make a difference. It won’t.
If Your Skin Changes from Slightly Oily to Sensitive
However, if you are one to pay careful attention to what you put on your skin, you may have gravitated to using gentler skincare products. You may not have realized that your skin is sensitive.
In that case, please retake your snowperk iD™ assessment to get the proper ingredient recommendation and skincare regime to administer to your skin type.
Otherwise, as an Resistant Skin Type, enjoy, count your blessings, and feel free to add variety to your skin care routine.
Since ingredients do not penetrate to your resistant skin easily, we suggest you to focus on your skin problems a step at a time. Do not worry, we will recommend a personalized skin care regime and curate a handy guide which teaches your on how to select ingredients according to your Skin Type.
