How to determine your skin type is a simple but important step in building your skincare routine. It tells you not only the skin conditions you need to address but also the skin care products that are right for you.
We all know the different skin types:
- Normal skin means you’re blessed with well-balanced, healthy skin. You have small pores and you don’t normally deal with a lot of major skin issues.
- You have dry skin when your face often feels tight and parched. You’re more susceptible to flakiness and fine lines.
- Oily skin means you’re less susceptible to wrinkles but tend be more acne-prone.
- Combination skin is when you have dry or normal cheeks but an oily t-zone (forehead, nose and chin).
Most people already have an idea of what their skin type is.
But for those who are not sure, or for those who want to be 100% certain, how to tell your skin type is very simple using these two skin type tests.
