Skin Care by Skin Types — Which Annmarie Skin Care Products are Best for You?

Which products are best for different skin types

Confused about what products to use based on your skin type? Confused about what your skin type even is? Different skin types need different types of products. Here is our quick guide on what generally works best!

It might be very obvious to you what your skin type is, but it might not. A good way to test this is to wash your face with a gentle cleanser at night, but don’t follow it with a serum, moisturizer, or anything else. In the morning, check your skin for oiliness and dryness.

Normal/Combination Skin Types

Normal skin is neither dry nor oily. Combination is both — oily in some places (usually the T-zone, your forehead and nose), and dry in others. Our line for Normal and Combination skin is balancing and suitable for both of these skin types!

Use these products in the morning and at night, in this order:

  1. Aloe Herb Cleanser
  2. Neroli Toning Mist
  3. Anti-Aging Serum
  4. Herbal Facial Oil for Normal/Combination Skin
  5. Anti-Aging Eye Cream
  6. Sun Love (morning only)

Use these products as you need them, about once or twice a week:

  • Purifying Mud Mask—Apply in T-zone, or to spot-treat an occasional blemish.
  • Dead Sea Scrub—Apply a thin layer and gently exfoliate in a circular motion for one minute. Leave on for five minutes and rinse.
  • Coconut Honey Mask—Those with normal skin can apply this moisturizing mask all over. Those with combination skin will want to avoid oily areas of the face.

Anti-Aging/Dry Mature Skin Types

This skin type is usually dry or in need or some extra moisture to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If you fit this category but tend toward oily skin, the facial oil for normal/combination skin might be more suitable for you.

Use these products in the morning and at night, in this order:

  1. Aloe Herb Cleanser
  2. Neroli Toning Mist
  3. Anti-Aging Serum and/or Citrus Stem Cell Serum

The Anti-Aging Serum reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plumping and nourishing the skin. The Citrus Stem Cell Serum brightens and evens the look of your skin tone. We recommend using the Citrus Stem Cell Serum morning and night for 30-40 days. Because this is a more nutritionally dense product, twice daily use in the long term isn’t right for everyone. It’s great to alternate the serums—Repair in the morning and Anti-Aging at night.

  1. Anti-Aging Facial Oil
  2. Anti-Aging Eye Cream
  3. Sun Love (morning only)

Use these products once or twice a week:

  • Coconut Honey Mask—Wash your face and then apply mask generously, including around the eyes. For deep penetration, warm skin first with warm water or apply while soaking in a hot bath or sauna. Leave on for at least 15 minutes. Rinse off with wet towel and pat skin dry.
  • Dead Sea Scrub—Apply a thin layer and gently exfoliate in a circular motion for one minute. Leave on for five minutes and rinse.

Oily Skin Types

This skin type tends to be oily.

Use these products in the morning and at night, in this order:

  1. Citrus Mint Cleanser
  2. Rosemary Toning Mist
  3. Herbal Facial Oil for Oily Skin
  4. Anti-Aging Eye Cream
  5. Sun Love (morning only)

Optional: Add the Anti-Aging Serum in between steps two and three to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to firm and tighten.

Use these once or twice a week:

  1. Purifying Mud Mask—Apply in t-zone, or to spot-treat an occasional blemish.
  2. Dead Sea Scrub—Apply a thin layer and gently exfoliate in a circular motion for one minute. Leave on for five minutes and rinse.

Sensitive Skin Types

This skin type is tends to have various sensitivities.

  1. Aloe Herb Cleanser
  2. Neroli Toning Mist
  3. Anti-Aging Serum
  4. Unscented Facial Oil
  5. Anti-Aging Eye Cream

Use these once or twice a week:

  • Coconut Honey Mask—Wash face then apply mask generously, including around eyes. For deep penetration, warm skin first with warm water or apply while soaking in a hot bath or sauna. Leave on for at least 15 minutes. Rinse off with wet towel and pat skin dry.
  • Ayurvedic Facial Scrub—Add about half a teaspoon of the powder to a dollop of the cleanser in your hand and mix. Use this mix to gently scrub and cleanse your face, then wash off.

We know that it can be difficult to find products that work for your skin. Pay attention to how your skin reacts to certain ingredients. Over time, you will know exactly what does and does not work for you!

What works for your skin type? We'd love to know!

  1. Hi, I’m 42 and I have extremely dry skin ever since puberty. I’ve eaten a ton of vegetables and fruits raw for almost 30 years. But they have not been organic but I cannot afford to eat organic where I live, I’m sure that’s a contributing factor. I hope your dry/mature skin products work for me. I do not have many lines and people say I look like I’m in my 20’s or 30’s. I’ve tried a lot of natural products. I already ordered a sample pack. I’m super excited thank you! Nothing seems to penatrste deeply into my skin enough. Uggh????

  2. This morning I received the anti-aging sample kit. After a good walk in the woods for two hours I treated myself with a nice warm bath (it’s still cold in The Netherlands!) and used the products. I’m 60, have Hashimoto’s and all of the sudden I got severe skin allergies, so I had to use perfume free products. And I already used very good, ‘EWG’ approved brands! Since the allergies have gone I am slowly returning to my favorite products. Well, one of them is defenitely going to be the Anti-Aging Facial Oil! And, the Aloe Herb Cleanser. Wow! I loved it! Since a long, long time my face was glowing again!
