Is your skin dry, oily or a combination? It is important to know your skin type before applying any products onto your face. Let us begin with this simple, 3 easy steps to determine your skin type.
1. Wash your face. Remove all make-up and any traces of dirt on your face.
2. Wait an hour. Your skin will return to its natural state, of which will determine your skin type. Please, do not touch your face.
3. Look in the mirror. There are 4 types of skin - normal, dry, oily and combination.
Normal - no signs of dryness or oiliness. You're lucky :)
Dry - skin feels tight and shows flake on some areas.
Oily - skin looks shiny and you see large pores.
Combination - T-zone is oily and the rest is either normal or dry.
After knowing your skin type, determine if you have skin problems like acne, blemish prone skin or sensitive skin that causes irritation, redness or rash.
