Quick tips to see if you have a Dry skin

There are several signs that may indicate that you have dry skin:

1.Tightness

After washing or bathing, your skin may feel tight or stretched.

2. Flaking or scaling

Dead skin cells may flake or scale off, giving the skin a rough texture.

3. Redness or irritation

The skin may appear red and irritated, especially in areas that are prone to dryness such as the cheeks, forehead and around the mouth.

4. Itching

The skin may feel itchy or uncomfortable.

5. Fine lines and wrinkles

Dry skin tends to be less elastic, which can make fine lines and wrinkles more pronounced.

6. Lack of oil

When you press your skin, it will not leave any oil on your finger.

Rooibos skin care products demand grow

Rooibos skin care products demand grow

A growing preference for natural products free from chemicals, along with a concern for the environment is driving the demand for herbal beauty products. This means Annique, and its key ingredient Rooibos, is perfectly placed to suit your needs.

The high concentration of polyphenolic compounds (micronutrients) in Rooibos tea is what makes it so sought-after as a health and beauty enhancer. Polyphenols act as antioxidants that protect the body against inflammation. It neutralises harmful free radicals that would otherwise damage cells and cause premature ageing. Drinking Rooibos tea should form part of your daily beauty routine to ensure healthy and hydrated skin.

It also contains an abundance of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which is an effective anti-ageing substance. As such. Rooibos reduces wrinkles and boosts the production of healthy skin cells.

The high flavonoid levels in Rooibos also help to improve skin disorders like eczema.  It’s natural anti-inflammatory properties will help soothe and relieve inflamed skin.  Rooibos teabags can be directly applied onto the affected skin for a few minutes.  Bathing regularly or rinsing inflamed areas with the tea will provide a healing effect.  Or, add rooibos in a spray bottle and apply throughout the day or when discomfort is experienced.

Inflammation is a major cause of acne and when your skin is damaged, it’s more vulnerable to bacteria which can aggravate acne. In addition to the tea’s anti-inflammatory response, it also contains antibacterial properties that will help fight acne. Drink it regularly and/or use it as a face rinse instead of water.

The polyphenols or antioxidants in Rooibos tea also strengthens hair follicles and promotes shiny and soft hair. Rinse your hair at least once a week with a strong brew of cooled down Rooibos tea for glowing locks. This is also good for treating a dry, itchy, or irritated scalp. Tired and sensitive eyes can also be treated with lukewarm Rooibos. Place tea bags on eyelids or rinse the eyes gently with the tea. Rooibos is also hypoallergenic and is therefore ideal for people with sensitive skin.

What is a combination skin?

What is a combination skin?

Combination skin occurs when two or more different skin types are prevalent on the face at the same time. Combination skin can at times be dry in some areas – usually on the cheeks, and oily in other: on the T-zone – over the nose, forehead, and chin. The T-zone can differ substantially from person to person – from a very slim zone to a wide extended area.

The oilier parts of combination skin are caused by an over-production of sebum or oil, while the drier parts of combination skin are caused by a lack of sebum and a corresponding lipid deficiency. Numerous people have this skin type and it can be challenging to care for optimally, as the cheeks need moisture while the nose, forehead and chin needs the oiliness to be regulated.

Add to that seasonal influences on the skin’s condition, and one soon has many skin challenges to address simultaneously. The oilier parts of combination skin are caused by an overproduction of sebum or oil. The drier parts of combination skin are caused by a lack of sebum and a corresponding lipid deficiency.

Few people are blessed with a normal skin type. The characteristics of this skin type are:

  • Not too dry and not too oily
  • No or few imperfections
  • No severe sensitivity
  • Barely visible pores
