The aging of the skin is a natural process just as the aging of the body.

25. Do I really need to wear sunscreen every day?
UV light from sun light (UVA and UVB) is the most damaging external factor for the skin. Even in a not sunny place, a sunscreen will protect your skin from UV damages. It will prevent from hyperpigmentation, sunburns, premature aging of the skin and skin cancer. You can use in winter a lighter UV protection (SPF 10, 20) and a higher skin protection in summer (SPF 30, 40 and 50) depending on you phototype. Natural filter is recommended because not invasive for the skin, that is why we use Silica Mineral filters in our Dr Burgener Sun Screen.
26. How do I find out my skin type?
You will know your skin type by observing how your skin looks and feels:
- If it looks shiny, oily, and perhaps with black heads or pimples it may indicate an oily skin.
- If it looks thin, with fine lines, desquamations, and it feels tight and uncomfortable, it may indicate a dry skin.
There is a lot of other skin conditions that could be added to your skin type such as sensitive skin, combined skin etc. We recommend you seek professional assistance or ask for a consultation on our site.
27. I have oily skin. Do I really need to moisturize?
It is important to make the difference between oil and water. An oily skin has an excess of oil secretion (sebum). It does not mean that the skin does not need water, so moisturization. People with oily skin tends to purify a lot the excess of sebum, which will also reduce excessively the needed water in the skin. Therefore, it is important to moisturize the skin, even when it is oily in order not to dehydrate it. We recommend light and watery textures. To moisturize without nourishing too much the skin, our recommendations from Dr Burgener Switzerland:
28. Why is my skin still dry?
I’m always moisturizing! It is important to make the difference between oil and water. A dry skin can result by a lack of lipids (sebum) and not a lack of water. A richer or oily texture will help to nourish the skin, so the hydrolipidic barrier will be rebalanced. To supply the skin with those good lipids, our recommendations from Dr Burgener Switzerland:
29. What are the Skin Care Considerations for Traveling?
When traveling, it is important to consider the weather condition where you are going. A cold and dry place will require a different skincare than a hot and humid place. A cold and dry place requires, depending on your skin type, richer textures, and more protection. A hot and humid place requires, depending on your skin type, lighter textures. If it is a polluted city, or a sunny place, a good protection is also needed. This is why Dr Burgener created the Travel Kit.
