HOW TO FIND YOUR SKINTYPE
Wash your face and wait for 1-2 hours & don’t apply any products on your skin while waiting.
- Does your skin feel tight? Maybe you even have some flaky areas? You have dry skin!
- No tight feeling or dry spots? No oiliness? You have normal skin!
- Is your skin shiny and does it feel oily? You have oily skin!
- Do you have a combination of the above? Oily or shiny T-zone and normal to dry cheeks? You have combination skin!
The skin feels soft and comfortable, neither tight, nor oily. It is balanced and has an even production of sebum and moisture. For normal skin, skin care is recommended, which maintains a good moisture level and protects the skin from external influences, such as cold. Do not opt for heavy products that clog the pores.
The skin has an overproduction of sebum and becomes slightly glossy. The pores are often large and the skin may be more prone to pimples or blackheads. For oily skin, moisturizing skin care is recommended, which is easy for the skin to absorb. A common mistake is to use dehydrating products, which can have the opposite effect and increase the skin’s sebum production.
The skin is both oily and dry and is often characterized by a oily T-zone (forehead, nose and chin). This is a very common skin type, which requires more complex skin care. For combined skin, balancing skin care is recommended and a good idea is to have a basic skin care routine, to which you add specific products for spot treatment of the T-zone or dry areas.
In addition to your skin type, your skin may also have skin conditions or special concerns.
