Stand out from the crowd with red hair.

If you choose the right shade of red, you can choose this color regardless of your skin tone. However, fair skin will start to glow easily with a shade of red. People with pale, cold skin or a neutral complexion should wear shades of light red like strawberry blonde. Pale skin with a shade of red will be enhanced by cool, dark reds like pure red or dark auburn. Warm shades will also go well with auburn tones, whether light, medium or dark. If you have an olive skin tone, it is best to avoid red, as it will make your skin look green.

Play with shades of brown.

Brown hair will go well with any skin tone and it’s much easier to find the right shade. Cold skin tones stand out better with ash browns, especially if you add streaks to them.

Try the chestnut. Warm skin tones stand out better with rich browns.

Find chocolate or mocha browns. If you have a darker skin tone, find a shade of darker or lighter brown than your skin color rather than one that comes too close.

Colder skin tones will go well with deep blacks and coffee colors, while warmer tones will look good with colors like caramel and maple syrup. People with a neutral complexion can wear any shade of brown.

Think about how your skin reacts to the sun.

Do you tan easily? Do you get sunburn or freckles? The amount of melanin in your skin determines how it reacts to exposure to the sun and helps you determine your skin tone.

If you can easily and rarely get sunburned, you have more melanin and you probably have a warm or neutral complexion.

If you get sunburned and don’t tan, you have less melanin and a cooler complexion.

Some women with very dark skin may not easily get sunburned while having a cool complexion. Try several tests to verify it.

Find its nuances

Hold a piece of paper against your face. Look at yourself in a mirror and try to see what your skin looks like by comparing it to the white sheet of paper. It might look a little yellow, blue-red, or pinkish, or it might look more like a gray color.

If your skin looks yellowish next to the white sheet of paper, you have a warm complexion.

If it looks pink, pink or bluish red, you have a cold complexion.

If it looks gray, you probably have an olive complexion with a neutral undertone. The green of your complexion and the yellow of your shade combine to create this effect. You can experiment with neutral and warm shades since you are in between.

If you cannot determine a yellow, olive or pink complexion, you have a neutral complexion. Neutral skin tones will give a good result with foundations and colors at both ends of the cold and hot spectrum.

How to determine your complexion

Your skin tone is something different from the color tone of your skin (which can be light, medium or dark). Your complexion will stay the same regardless of your exposure to the sun, even if you are pale in winter and tanned in summer. There are three different shades: cold, warm and neutral [1]. It may be useful to know them, it can help you choose a lipstick, find the best hair color and know which colors to choose to highlight you.

  1. Wash your face. Wait a quarter of an hour. Your skin should be clean and should not be covered with makeup, lotion or other products. It should sit for about a quarter of an hour before you take care of it, because it will look pinker after you rub it in and it will be difficult for you to see your true shade.
  2. Find a source of natural light. Different bulbs can have a different effect on your skin. They could give you a more yellow or green complexion which will interfere with the color of your skin. Choose a sunny place to find your nuances to avoid going wrong. Try to sit by a window. If you have a place where you can sit outside, go for it.
  3. Look at the color of the veins in your wrist. It’s a quick way to determine your nuances if your veins are visible. Keep your arm in natural light and determine the predominant color.
    • If you can’t figure out if your veins are green or blue, you have a neutral skin tone.
    • ┬áIf you have an olive complexion, you probably fall into this category.
    • If your veins look green, you have a warm complexion.
    • If they look blue or purple, you have a cold complexion.

Why do humans have different skin colors?

White skin, black skin or intermediate shade … The different skin colors of humans are an adaptation to the differences in intensity of ultraviolet rays according to regions of the world. Ultraviolet radiation is stronger in Africa than in Europe or North America, for example. So, it makes sense that people from different countries have different skin types and colors. However modern man moves around the world a lot, which has muddied the waters: from now on, people of various ethnic origins are found in all latitudes.

The more melanin pigments, the darker it is.

Conversely, the less melanin, the lighter the skin becomes.

Darker skin provides better protection against cell damage caused by intense sunlight.

Facial skin color

The skin has different colors depending on its origins, each skin is unique and reacts in a particular way to the environment. There are all possible skin colors, due to the mixing of populations.

The different hues found in the current population show a continuous degradation of colors and shades (in tone) varied from very light to dark brown with shades of pink, red, yellow, olive and neutral.

The color of your skin is the result of mixing:

– Melanin: dark brown

– Carotene: orange

– hemoglobin: red, pink

The cold complexion: a clear, pale, olive, beige or gray complexion, includes shades of yellow.

(This cold color refers to illness or sadness)

Warm complexion: light, mat or dark have pink undertones

What is a Healthy Skin?

What exactly is the recipe for healthy skin? You keep asking me about my skin and how I maintain it. As you know, I have struggled for a long time with sensitive and frizzy skin that is a little extra difficult to care for than many other skin types. I have spent a long time getting to know mine so in everyday life I am extremely careful to cleanse my skin every morning and evening to maintain it. Have you experienced throwing away a lot of creams and miracle products to overcome your problems, and then it ends up just getting worse? I always follow a golden remembering rule when choosing products. I have learned that the fewer and cleaner products one uses, which are tapped for unnecessary chemicals and substances, the better the skin behaves. The simplest is actually the best thing you can do for a healthy skin!

In the summer, I’m always careful to put some extra work into my skincare. Sunscreen, heat and sweat can cause the pores to get a little extra irritated, and if you do not care, you may end up with acne, dry areas or generally just redness and irritation of the skin. In my bag, I always carry cleaning wipes that can give me a quick pick-me-up when I’m on the go!
