Know Your Type - Robert Natali

Know Your Type

All men are created equal. Your skin’s another story. Skincare, diet, lifestyle, body chemistry, hormones, and environmental factors all play a major role in your skin’s health and appearance, but the primary culprit is genetics. Skin type is inherited. As unique as you are, your skin falls into one of five specific categories. The following is a brief description of each one, along with simple, personalized skincare tips.


Normal
     Key Characteristics…
  • Clear, vibrant & perfectly moist
  • No inflammations or blemishes
  • Balanced, never too oily or dry
  • Smooth, supple & wrinkle-free
  • Small to medium-sized pores
  • Rarely affected by heat or cold

Skin this perfect is rare but some men do have it. If you’re one of them, maintain it with pure, natural products that safely repair, replenish, and revitalize skin. Follow these tips and try not to gloat…

  • Cleanse, tone, and moisturize mornings and evenings. (Shave with Robert Natali Pure Grooming Essentials and you can skip your morning regimen.)
  • Use warm water to cleanse. Hot water can inflame skin. After cleansing, pat dry. Excessive rubbing can irritate skin.
  • Alternate your daily cleanser with an exfoliating face scrub every other day—never right before or after shaving—to purify skin, deep clean pores and strip away dead skin cells.*
  • Eat foods that support healthy skin, especially organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Drink plenty of filtered water to plump up skin cells and cleanse pores.
  • Exercise regularly to detoxify skin and flush out pores.
  • Wear a hat with a visor to protect scalp and face.
  • Apply sunscreen (minimum SPF 30) before you go out.
  • Wear sunglasses that provide ultraviolet (UV) protection.

Dry
     Key Characteristics…

  • Rough, chapped or scaly patches
  • Consistently dull & lackluster
  • Often feels tight after washing

If this sounds familiar, pure, natural skincare products that safely repair, replenish, and revitalize are your best friends. Follow these tips and kiss dry goodbye…

  • Cleanse, tone, and moisturize mornings and evenings. (Shave with Robert Natali Pure Grooming Essentials and you can skip your morning regimen.)
  • Use warm water to cleanse. Hot water can inflame skin. After cleansing, pat dry. Excessive rubbing can irritate skin.

     Key Characteristics…
  • Oily & shiny soon after

    blackheads & acne
  • Visibly large, open pores

Testosterone may work in the boardroom or bedroom, but not in your skin. It promotes oil production. The good news is that oily skin tends not to dry out, wrinkle, or lose elasticity. Switch to pure, natural products, make sensible lifestyle choices, and follow these tips to create your own private oil embargo…

  • Cleanse, tone, and moisturize mornings and evenings to help absorb excess oils and control production. (Shave with Robert Natali Pure Grooming Essentials and you can skip your morning regimen.)
  • Use warm water to cleanse. Hot water can inflame skin. After cleansing, pat dry. Excessive rubbing can irritate skin.
  • Alternate your daily cleanser with an exfoliating face scrub every other day—never right before or after shaving—to purify skin, deep clean pores and strip away dead skin cells. This will also help prevent blackheads, whiteheads, ingrown hairs and razor bumps.*
  • Eat foods that support healthy skin, especially organic fruits and vegetables
  • Drink plenty of filtered water to plump up skin cells and cleanse pores.
  • Exercise regularly to detoxify skin and flush out pores.

    extreme weather

Combo
     Key Characteristics…
  • Perfectly healthy cheeks
  • Oily around eyebrows & nose
  • Dry beneath the eyes

Most men fall into this category. Combination skin is easier to care for than you might think. Your skin intuitively absorbs what it needs and discards the rest, just as your body does with vitamins.
