Know your skin type before starting any skincare regimen.

Before starting any skincare regimen, you need to know your skin type.

    Not quite sure what your skin type is?  We've have it broken down for you. 

 There are essentially 5 different skin types:

Normal Skin
  • Neither oily nor dry
  • Blemish free with barely visible pores
  • Skin appears smooth with few discolorations or pigmentation
Oily Skin
  • Oily all over entire day
  • Prone to breakouts, acne and blackheads
  • Pores are large
Dry Skin
  • Tight skin, sometimes flakey, sometimes with red patches
  • Skin appears dull with small pores
  • Wrinkles and lines develop easily
Combination Skin
  • Oily around chin, nose and forehead
  • Dry around hairline, jawline and eyes
  • Pores are large and prone to blackheads
Sensitive Skin
  • Skin with red and blotchy patches
  • Prone to irritation and rashes
  • Skin often feels itchy or burning and capillaries brake easily

Here is How to Determine Your Skin Type:

Step 2:

Wash your face and gently pat it dry

Step 2:
Leave your face alone for a couple
of hours without putting on any
skincare products or makeup

Step 3:

Using oil blotting paper dab the following
portions of your face one at a time:

Forehead                    Eyes and Under Eyes
Cheeks                       Sides of Nose

Step 4:

As you dab each portion of your face,
check to see if there is any oily residue
and make a note for that portion if there is.

Tip: Your forehead and nose are naturally a little oily, this is normal.
