Knowing your skin type is primordial to know what kind of treatment you should get! Some products will not work for your skin type and that’s completely okay, others will do miracles. If you know your skin type you will be able to choose better skin care products and even better makeup! It’s actually quite simple to figure that out and you don’t even need to leave your house to do so!
You must know there are 4 types of skin types: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily.
Normal skin is neither too oily nor too dry, it’s what is considered a healthy skin type because of how balanced it is. You can identify it by the smooth texture, fine pores, few breakouts, no sensitivity or blemishes. The best way to take care of this skin type is by cleansing your skin daily, protecting it with sunscreen, staying hydrated, and of course removing your makeup before going to bed.
Dry skin has a rough and textured feeling to the skin. You might feel like it’s a bit tight because of low sebum production. Dryness of the skin can be caused by genetics, climate, and age. You should shorten your shower, moisturize, stay hydrated, try a humidifier, and use sunscreen to take care of your skin.
Oily skin presents a greasy appearance. It’s prone to acne breakouts and is defined by an overproduction of sebum. A few things provoke oily skin such as hormonal changes, the climate you are living in, genetics, and the size of your pores.
Combination skin is a mix of dry and oily skin. Usually oily on the T-zone and dry the rest of the face. With this skin type, you should have 2 separate skincare routines and avoid oily makeup or skincare product on top of doing everything mentioned in the 2 previous points.
Depending on where you are located or the time of the year, your skin will need different treatments. For example, living in Canada, I tend to have extremely dry skin in winter and then combination in the summer. It is why it’s very important to switch your skincare routine from time to time! Check-in with your skin to make sure it has everything to be beautiful and healthy!
