There are a lot of people who are questioning their skin type, so don’t feel bad if you’re not sure where your skin lies on the spectrum. It’s important to know your skin type because it’ll help you buy the best products to help your skin’s health. There are a few simple factors to consider with your skin to determine your skin type. You’ll add a little bliss in your routine when you learn the benefits of knowing what products to buy to help your skin.
First, there are four categories your skin type can fall under: oily, dry, normal or combination. Second, there are three main factors you want to consider regarding your skin: amount of blemishes, pores and sensitivity. You need to take this into consideration when purchasing products because it can make or break how clear your skin is. Let’s break this down by skin type.
Those with oily skin are more apt to have large pores, shiny skin with an above average amount of blemishes, blackheads and breakouts. You know you have oily skin if your skin feels greasy or appears shiny.
People who identify with dry skin have pores that are invisible. However, they also have an overall dull, rough complexion. They are likely to have red, blotchy patches or general irritation. You have dry skin if you have light acne but strong sensitivity.
People who have normal skin are considered the lucky ones. They have few to no imperfections, no visible pores, no sensitivity, and their complexion is generally radiant. But, this doesn’t mean you can skin on cleanser, moisturizer, etc.
For people who have combination skin, you have large pores with some blemishes and blackheads. The problem with combination skin is that you can have some areas of your skin feel dry and other sections appear oily.
I hope this post helped you learn more about your skin and how your type can determine what products will work best for you.
