Each one of us is blessed with a different skin type, which might be normal to us but is in fact quite different from everyone else’s. Determining your unique facial skin type is the first step to caring for your skin correctly, which includes choosing suitable skincare products, and making your skin as perfect as it can possibly be. It just takes a simple 3-step routine to find out your skin type, which can be normal, oily, dry or combination:
Rinse your Face
Use a gentle facial cleanser to wash your face and pat your skin dry. Make sure to remove all traces of makeup, as this step removes accumulated oils and dirt which tend to build up on the skin during the daytime. This step will make your skin feel fresher as well, however, it’s equally important to not over cleanse.
Wait for an Hour
By waiting for an hour, you give your skin enough time to return to its natural state, and exhibit the different characteristics which help you determine your skin type correctly. Make sure to avoid touching your face, as this can irritate facial skin.
Dab Tissue on your Face
After you’re done with waiting, gently dab your skin with a tissue, while paying special attention to your T-zone, which is the area on your forehead and nose.
Establish your Skin Type
There are 4 different skin types – normal, oily, dry and combination.
It should be noted that skin types can change over time. For instance, younger people are more prone to having normal skin as compared to their older counterparts. Skin types and textures are dependent on different factors, which include:
Regardless of the kind of skin type you are born with, you can maintain healthy, supple-looking skin with the right skincare products and good habits.
