Understanding Your Skin

Skin Types

Knowing your skin type is the first step to effective skincare. Here are the main types:

  • Normal: Balanced skin with minimal issues.
  • Oily: Shiny skin with larger pores and a tendency for acne.
  • Dry: Flaky or rough skin that feels tight.
  • Combination: Oily in some areas, like the T-zone, and dry in others.
  • Sensitive: Easily irritated skin that reacts to many products.

Identifying Your Skin Type

To identify your skin type, wash your face and wait for an hour without applying any products. Look closely at your skin’s condition:

  • Normal: Feels comfortable without excess oil or dryness.
  • Oily: Appears shiny, especially on the forehead, nose, and chin.
  • Dry: Feels tight or shows flakes.
  • Combination: Experiences both oily and dry areas.
  • Sensitive: Shows redness or irritation.

Once you know this, building out your skincare routine should be easier.
