Choosing the Right Concealer for Your Skin Type

I Conceal foundationHave you ever wondered why some concealers work great for some and not so great for others? A concealer that works wonders for your friend may end up looking blotchy on you. Why is this?

Believe it or not, your skin type plays a big role in the type of concealer you should use. Dry, oily, combination, sensitive, and normal skin types all have different concealer requirements.

When picking a concealer, it is important to consider your skin type.

Dry Skin Type

People with dry skin tend to experience a dull or rough complexion, red patches, less elasticity, and more visible lines. Also, when exposed to a dry environment, skin can sometimes crack, peel, or become itchy. It is also possible to suffer irritation or inflammation of the skin due to excessive dryness. All of these conditions are worsened with the use of an inferior or improper concealer.

Oily Skin Type

Oily skin types tend to suffer enlarged pores, a dull, shiny or thick complexion, and skin blemishes like blackheads or pimples. It is also common to have blocked pores when one has oily skin and the wrong type of concealer can just worsen this problem.

Combination Skin Type

People with a combination skin type can suffer with both oily and dry skin at the same time, but in different areas of the face. Combination skin types typically have an oily T-zone (nose, forehead, or chin) but have normal or dry skin on the rest of the face. This makes it especially difficult to find a concealer that matches their needs.

Sensitive Skin Type

Sensitive skin can react to almost anything, but the majority of the time a reaction is due to skin care products. Redness, itching, burning, or dry skin are all common signs of a reaction. Many concealers are not made for sensitive skin and can cause serious skin problems.

Normal Skin Type

Some people are blessed with perfect skin or a normal skin type. Normal skin is not too oily nor too dry. People with a normal skin type also suffer few imperfections, little sensitivity, barely visible pores, and an even complexion. However, even a normal skin type can be affected by the wrong concealer. Consistent use of a low quality concealer may cause breakouts or dry spots where they have never occurred before.
