We spend so much time, effort and money on our precious skincare products and routines but we are never fully satisfied with the results... This is usually down to the fact that we never really know what skin type we have. To quickly find out what skin type you have, cleans your face and let it dry. Wait an hour and see how it feels. If a feeling of tightness and pulling starts, perhaps a few fine lines and a mild rash? - You've got dry skin! Your skin needs instant replenishment after cleansing to feel good. If after cleansing your skin feels smooth and cool, but after an hour an oil residue appears, you have oily skin. Enlarged pores, shiny forehead and a general suffering of breakouts... that's right, oily skin. A cousin of the oily skin type is Mr. Combination Skin. Dry patches followed by an oily T zone and redness are the main signs of this skin type. Seasonal changes have a big impact on the general behavior of your skin - Humidity and sunshine cause excess oil while winters bring severe dryness. If you feel tightness, burning, frequent breakouts and react to most products your skin is sensitive, This is a sub-category of skin types nowadays as many of us react to various cosmetics due to nasty chemicals and alcohol hidden away in the beautiful packaged jars and bottles. What we all try to strive towards is normal skin. This skin type has an even skin tone, a radiant complexion with rare cases of breakouts. Products feel fine on the skin and there are no changes through out the day.
