How to Find Out Your Skin Type

Understanding your skin type is key to achieving glowing, radiant skin. When you don’t know your skin type, you may choose the wrong products. And when you use the wrong products, you worsen skin issues like breakouts and dryness.

To determine your skin type, start by removing your makeup and washing your face as you would normally. Afterward, don’t apply any moisturizer or other products for at least two hours. When two hours is up, examine your skin to look for the following issues.

Dry

  • Your skin will feel tight and uncomfortable. You may also notice flaky patches in the driest areas.

People with dry skin are encouraged to apply moisturizer multiple times per day, which should start immediately after you bathe or shower. Additionally, keep water temperate when bathing, as hot water can actually make dry skin worse. When it comes to cleansing your face, look for mild soaps with added fats to smooth out your skin’s texture.

Oily

  • The natural oils will have come back to your skin with a vengeance soon after washing your face.

Keep in mind that just because you have oily skin doesn’t mean you should skip moisturizer. You just need to choose one suited to your skin type, such as light, airy formulas that won’t clog your pores. A water-based product is best, in this case.

Combination

  • Combination skin experiences an oily T-zone (which includes the forehead, nose, and chin) along with dryness elsewhere.

In this case, you may need to have two moisturizers on hand. Choose a thick, heavy-duty cream for dry areas, and a light, water-based moisturizer for the oily areas. Facial wipes are also recommended, as they can remove excess oil from certain areas of your skin during the day. This reduces clogged pores and prevents breakouts.

Normal

  • Normal skin types will look and feel the same two hours after washing.

Skin care is still crucial for normal skin types, as it ensures your skin will remain smooth and supple for many years to come. All skin types should wear sunscreen that’s an SPF 30 or higher that includes broad-spectrum attention. You should also wash your face on a nightly basis to remove makeup and dirt. And choose a lightweight moisturizer to keep your skin soft.
