Determining Your Skin Type
What skin type do you have? Beauty and skin care products are often marketed by the types of skin that they’re best used for – oily, combination, normal, dry, etc. It’s important to know the kind of skin you have so that you can buy products that are formulated especially to work on your specific skin concerns. For instance, I have oil-prone and combination skin, which can be mildly irritating to be handle.
Not sure what skin type you have? Check out the list of questions below to determine which type of skin you have.
Is my complexion dull?
Has my skin lost its elasticity?
Does my skin feel rough?
Are my pores almost invisible?
Does my skin feel tight and dry?
Do wrinkles and fine lines seem to stand out on my face?
If you answer yes to most or all of these questions, dry skin is up your alley.
Does my skin appear smooth?
Are my pores hardly visible?
Does my skin have a radiant glow?
Is my skin a balance between not too oily and not to dry?
If your answers are yes, then you’ve likely got normal skin.
Does my skin look oily and/or shiny?
Do my pores look big?
Do I have blackheads and/or pimples?
These are the most common indicators of oily skin.
Does my skin look shiny?
Does my skin appear different in different parts of my face (such as oily across the forehead, nose and chin and normal or dry on the cheeks)?
Do my pores look enlarged?
These are signs of combination skin. Note that you may need to use different products and/or treatments on different areas of your face if you have combination skin.
Does my skin look red or inflamed?
Does my skin react to certain ingredients in products?
Does my skin itch or burn?
Do I have patches of dryness on my face?
If you answer yes to most or all of these questions, you may have sensitive skin. Unfortunately, you may be reacting to an ingredient in your facial care or makeup products. Try to determine which ingredient(s) are causing you to react and avoid using products that contain that ingredient.
Now that you have an idea of the type of skin you have, you can look for products made just for your skin type, to help it look and feel as radiant as possible.
