The ultimate guide to choosing your skincare

With so many skincare products out there it’s hard to know where to start or what to choose. A good way to narrow down your search is to start with your GOALS and SKIN TYPE, and then align products from there.

To save you any analysis paralysis, we’ve pulled together a no-nonsense guide to choosing your RAWKANVAS skincare – so you can feel completely confident about your decision.


Step one: Define your skin goal(s)

First things first, get clear on your skin goal(s) so you can find products that match these. You don’t need a million-step routine, you need a routine complete with the products that will work toward assisting your goals.

Goals are commonly made to assist:

  • Breakouts
  • Dryness
  • Dullness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines
  • Light scarring
  • Oiliness
  • Uneven skin tone (pigmentation, redness)
  • Sun damage

 

Step two: Define your skin type

Next, define your skin type so you can choose products that will not only work for you, but will also avoid causing any adverse effects or irritation.

Whether you’re in your early twenties, mature or pregnant, most skin types will fall into one of four categories:

  • Oily: Oily skin is characterized by a greasy appearance. This skin type is prone to acne breakouts. Oily skin is the result of excess sebum production
  • Dry: Dry skin is determined by flaky and rough texture. It can at times feel tight and cause irritation
  • Combination: Combination skin is a mix of oily skin and dry skin. Usually in combination skin types, the T-zone is oily and the cheeks are dry
  • Sensitive: Sensitive skin is usually characterized by itchiness, flushing, redness or irritation that can be caused by ingredients within products

 

Step three: Find your matching products

Now that you’ve defined your skin goal(s) and skin type, simply select the products that tick both boxes within our complete product guide below.

For example if my skin goal is to minimize breakouts and my skin type is oily, then Refined is a suitable product for me because it assists with breakouts and it’s suitable for oily skin – it ticks both boxes.
