What is your skin type?
The first step towards reaching your skin care goals, is knowing your SKIN TYPE.
HOW TO IDENTIFY NORMAL SKIN
Normal skin feels well balanced. It neither feels dry nor oily. It does not show any concerns of other skin types, such as dryness, breakouts, or irritation. The texture is smooth, and the pores are usually small. It feels elastic and has a healthy natural glow.
HOW TO IDENTIFY DRY SKIN
Dry skin usually feels tight and itchy. In addition, the skin is prone to flakiness, sensitivity, and uneven skin tone. It is also the most susceptible to aging, given that dehydration is one of the main causes of aging skin.
HOW TO IDENTIFY OILY SKIN
Oily skin feels greasy, mainly on the T-Zone, made up of the forehead, nose, and chin. Oily skin is characterized by overproduction of sebum, resulting in the skin appearing shiny with large pores and prone to breakouts.
HOW TO IDENTIFY COMBINATION SKIN
Combination skin shows signs of more than one skin type. Usually, the T-Zone is oily, and the rest of the face is either normal, dry, or sensitive. The skin surface is uneven due to its uneven conditions across the face.
HOW TO IDENTIFY SENSITIVE SKIN
Sensitive skin often has a burning sensation after being exposed to certain conditions, such as harsh skin products or sun damage. Sensitive skin can be identified by its redness and often shows small red veins through the skin surface. The skin surface is usually uneven, often flakey, and/or inflamed.
