In order to practice effective skincare, it's essential to know your skin type to use the right products for you. Using products best suited for your skin type is key to getting balanced, vibrant skin. If you're using a product not tailored to your skin, you may not get the results you're looking for. It could also cause irritation, excess oil, breakouts, or even dry out your skin.
Let's take a peek at two simple steps that will help you determine your skin type:
- Wash your face with a mild face wash and pat your skin dry.
- Wait one hour after washing without applying any skin products.
If your face feels tight and dry after about a half-hour to an hour after washing - you most likely have dry skin.
If your face feels oily and looks shiny? - you may have oily skin.
If your T-zone is shimmering, but the rest of your face is mostly matte - then you may have combination type.
If you notice your skin doesn't fall under any of these categories, and you're free of problem areas - you may have normal skin, which requires low maintenance! Congratulations!
Once you've determined your skin type, you're ready for skincare.
