Why should you bother finding out your skin type? Ever invested in skincare that didn’t work for you or caused you to breakout? A major reason could be because the product did not suit your skin type.
Understanding your skin type is the first step to determining the most effective way of taking care of your skin. It could be the key to finding the right products to achieve your optimal skin goals. Your skin type depends on several factors: genetics, hormones, lifestyle, and environment. Although your skin is unique, there are essentially five different types of skin: normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive.
Normal Skin is well-balanced skin.
Dry Skin is characterized by dull, tight, flaky, and scaly skin that looks and feels dehydrated.
Oily Skin looks shiny and greasy with excess oils making it prone to breakouts.
Combination Skin has various areas that are oily and dry.
Sensitive Skin differs individually but most commonly is characterized by dryness and redness.
Take a few minutes to figure out your skin type before taking the plunge on skincare. Here are two simple ways to easily identify your skin type at home:
An easy method would be to wash your face with a mild cleanser, gently pat dry with a soft towel, and leave your skin bare (do not apply any skincare products). In 30 minutes, observe your skin. If it feels tight, dry, or flaky you have dry skin. If you’re shiny just on your t-zone, you likely have normal or combination skin. If there’s shine on your cheeks in addition to the t-zone, your skin is oily.
Another method is to press a clean blotting paper to various areas of your face, then, holding it against the light to determine the amount of oil. If the blotting paper is soaked in oil, you have oily skin. If the sheet picks up minimal oil, you likely have dry skin. If the blotting paper picked up little oil from the t-zone, you probably have normal or combination skin.
Now that you’ve determined your skin type, it’s time to find skincare that works for you. It can be taxing to build a skincare routine that fits your skin type and solves your skin issues at the same time. Luckily, the ‘Bettr You Set - The Complete Skincare Trio’ would save you the headache. Made for all skin types (even sensitive skin), this multi-tasking set doesn’t only adapt to fit your skin type but battles acne, hyperpigmentation, redness, and signs of aging.
