An easy way to determine your SKIN TYPE at home
Knowing your SKIN TYPE is a crucial part of finding products that will work and give you the results you want. Everyone’s skin is unique, but there are a few common skin types that may help you to identify where your skin fits in the most. The 3 main skin types are commonly referred to as Oily, Combination and Dry.
Here’s an easy way to determine your SKIN TYPE at home. . .
STEP 1: Cleanse your face with a mild cleanser
STEP 2: Dry and leave your skin bare (do not apply any other product including toner, moisturizer or serums).
STEP 3: Wait 30 minutes then analyze your skin. Pay special attention to determine if there is a slight feeling of tightness when you smile or make other facial expressions. Or, if your t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) is starting to show some shine.
STEP 4: Wait another 30 minutes then analyze your skin again.
SKIN TYPE: If your skin feels tight, it means you have Dry Skin. If your t-zone has noticeable shine but the rest of your face is normal, you have Combination Skin. If you’re shiny all over, you have Oily Skin.
Once you know your SKIN TYPE, you can start building your skincare routine
Start with the skincare essentials: cleanser + toner + moisturizer + sunscreen
For noticeable results, follow your routine consistently (check out Reasons for maintaining consistent Skincare Routine BLOG) This means you cleanse-tone-moisturize even if you’re tired, drunk, running late in the morning or very sleepy in the evening-no excuses. Skincare and healthy skin, like all good things, take time. Your skin needs time to adapt to these changes and continue its functions with the new products and their ingredients.
Once your daily essential skincare routine becomes your daily ritual, take it up a notch
Add specialty products: exfoliator + face serum + eye cream + neck cream + face mask
