With so many skincare products to choose from, it can be tricky working out which are the best ones for you. One of the (many) reasons I decided to become an Epionce skincare stockist is because it includes products to gently treat and care for every skin type.

While I'm always happy to give you personal advice, I thought it would be helpful to share some basic guidelines and product recommendations for your skin type.

What's your skin type?

This is always the best place to start – as most people's skin type fits into one of three categories. I love that Epionce simplify choosing a regime by categorising each skin type with dots –

  • dry to sensitive – 1 dot
  • normal to combination – 2 dots
  • oily to problem – 3 dots

So let's work out which products best suit each of these skin types.

Dry to Sensitive Skin

Feels: tight, craving moisture, easily irritated, inflamed, flaky, cracked.

Needs: the correct levels of oil and moisture for skin health

Treat with:

  • Milky Lotion Cleanser  – a rich, creamy and hydrating
  • Balancing Toner – with botanical humectants for dewy skin
  • Lite Lytic Tx – to gently smooth your skin's texture and brighten tone.
  • Renewal Facial Cream – the most rich and moisturising Renewal formula with hyaluronic acid to improve the visible appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and firmer skin.

Normal Skin

Feels: comfortable, well hydrated and balanced with no major issues.

Needs: regular care to maintain its condition

Treat with:

  • Gentle Foaming Cleanser – to gently cleanse without stripping away natural oils.
  • Balancing Toner – to leave your skin calm and hydrated.
  • Lytic Tx – helps keep pores clear and refines skin texture.
  • Renewal Facial Lotion – a lighter version of Renewal Facial Cream with the same anti-ageing benefits.

Oily/ Problem Skin

Feels: shiny or oily with enlarged pores and possible blemishes

Needs:  gentle, effective products to reduce shine and breakouts while maintaining a healthy balance that supports your skin's health

Treat with:

  • Lytic Gel Cleanser – to calm and refresh skin, dissolving dirt and oil without drying it out.
  • Purifying Toner – this gently astringent toner contains Willow Bark Extract to help control surface shine and remove dirt, oil and makeup from pores.
  • Lytic Sport Tx – a maximum strength formula to help unclog pores, tackle blemishes and smooth skin texture.
  • Renewal Lite Facial Lotion – the lightest Renewal moisturising formula to hydrate and nourish.
