What’s Your Skin Type?


A skin type is determined by the overall texture and appearance of one’s skin. There are different types of skin and one of the main reasons you should know your skin type is because it will help you choose the right products for your skin. Here are some of the common skin types:

  1. Normal Skin:

    This type of skin isn’t too oily nor too dry and is not very sensitive. In this case, you have barely visible pores, fairly smooth and glowing skin. For this type of skin, you can use products that are labelled ‘For all types of skin’.

  2. Oily Skin:

    This type of skin tends to become oily and greasy, especially around your nose, cheeks, and forehead. Your face tends to produce more oil than necessary which can produce more blackheads and pimples. For this type of skin, it’s best to use products that have an oil eliminating and cleansing property.

  3. Dry Skin:

    In this case, your skin tends to dry up very quickly and doesn’t maintain the necessary amount of oil which tends to make your skin rough and dull. Your skin also tends to become flaky and itchy from time to time. For this type of skin, it’s best to use products that have a moisturizing property.

  4. Sensitive Skin:

    If your skin is prone to allergies, acne, and other rashes, then you’ve got a sensitive skin. You have to be extremely careful of the products you use or else there may be negative effects. For this type of skin, it’s best to stick to natural and organic products because they contain less chemicals.

  5. Combination Skin:

    If you have a mix of oily and normal skin types, then you’ve got a combination skin. Your T-zone (Forehead, nose, and chin) tends to produce more oil than the rest of your face which makes your face look shiny. Since I have this type of skin, I’ve realized that it’s best to use products that are specially designed for combination skin, especially when it comes to cleansers and toners.

I hope you found this post useful!

    I’m lucky, got oily skin… well maybe not, it’s a freaking nightmare. Unfortunately nothing works for me, tried so many creams. In the end I think soap and water is the only thing that will do something, and ones diet. Great post though, really good to read! 😀

      Haha, oh no! As long as you know how to deal with your skin, it’s all good. One suggestion, you could try using Johnson’s oil balancing gel wash, it might be suitable for your skin type. 🙂
      Thank you, I’m glad you liked it! 😀
