In the world we live in we are taught from an early age that there are certain things that are "only for girls/ boys", but makeup can be an artistic expression that transcends gender. For the transgender community, this topic can be one that really effects a person’s ability to feel confident and most importantly, comfortable within their skin. For someone who is trans, discovering makeup can make a world of difference. The process can help transform you from one gender to another; it requires you to see what works for you, making time for yourself, and playing with colors! Transvivor would like to note that taking care of your skin and buying makeup can be a very costly, however know that there are some ways to go about this endeavor while staying cost efficient. Another thing to keep in mind is that makeup and skin care can greatly help someone feel less dysphoric about their appearance. Good quality products aren’t hard to come by and aren't always costly. If you really envelope yourself and dedicate yourself to making this a self-care moment, the results could even surprise yourself.
Skin care is extremely important and should not be taken lightly. The first step is to understand the type of skin you have; it is bound to change due to age, hormones, climate, etc. —but you should be able to judge which type suits you most.
There are four basic skin types; each are going to require unique care.
Not too dry and not too oily. This skin types will be radiant, not really that sensitive, and barely visible pores.
How to Care for This Skin Type:
Your skin can be both dry, normal, and oily in different regions of the face. There might be areas that your pores look larger, you’ll have blackheads, or shiny skin.
Note: This skin type will have drastically different textures about the face. “Normal” skin will be more fluid.
How To Care For This Skin Type:
Your skin could peel, itch, or become rough. This skin could show red patches, more visible lines, and your skin is less elastic.
It could potentially be caused or get worse with:
Your skin will have a thicker complexion, blemishes (blackheads and pimples), and enlarged pores. Your oiliness can change depending on the time of year or the weather.
Note: If your face feels really tight and gets oily only in the latter half of the day, you probably have “dry” skin, and it’s just so dry that your skin is producing excess oil as a defense mechanism.
Your skin will have reactions to particular care products or other things when you apply them to your face—these may take a few days to flare up.
Note: Further, people with excess redness, who break out randomly, or tend to have reactions to unlikely products can also have sensitive skin. It is not a skin type of its own but there are some things you can do to help take care of sensitives and ensure that you’re addressing everything your skin needs.
These are the basic principles of skincare addressing moisture and texture—but there’s so much out there still. At the very least, what is provided should be pointing you in the right direction. It’s still recommended that you never wear makeup when working out (and wash immediately after), finish rinsing with a splash of cold water, use sunscreen, wear sunglasses, always push yourself to drink more water, and be mindful of your health. Your health manifests itself in your face, so you’ve got to keep it in good condition.
