There’s nothing worse than using the wrong skincare product for your skin type!
To choose the right products for your skin, you need to know the type of skin you have.
There are 4 common skin types, and the type of skin you have depends on the amount of water and oil you have in your skin. If these are out of balance your skin will suffer.
Combination skin can go between feeling dry and oily. You may also find you have a shiny T-Zone, are prone to blackheads and have areas of dryness from time to time.
Dry skin is lacking in oil (not to be confused with lacking in water, which makes the skin dehydrated). You may feel tightness in your skin after showering or washing your face as well as get flaky patches.
If your skin is easily irritated, itches or has rashes – then you could have sensitive skin. This skin type can be easily aggravated by the weather, hormones, stress, diet, and beauty products.
Those lucky few with a normal skin type will find they have a healthy oil balance, a clear complexion, even skin tone, and a radiant glow to their complexion.
It’s important that when choosing a moisturiser, cleanser, or anything else, you make sure it’s right for your skin type. If the product isn’t right for your skin type it won’t be as effective and could aggravate existing conditions, or even cause new ones.
So now that you know the various skin types and tell your skin type, it should be easy to choose the right skincare products to ensure you have healthy, glowing skin.
