The test to find out your skin type!
Have you ever used a “Miracle” product that had no effect at all, or that may have worsened the condition of the skin?
There are many possibilities that the product was not suitable for your skin type.
How to know your skin type?
To find out what kind of skin it is, you must first follow three simple steps.
- First step: Wash your face with a gentle cleanser to remove makeup, oil, and dirt.
- Second step: Carefully dry the skin. Do not apply any moisturizer or serum to the skin.
- Step three: Wait an hour. During this time do not touch your face (resist the temptation). After an hour look closely and notice the details of your skin.
How to tell: If your skin feels tight and itchy, or feels like you’ve never used enough moisturizer, you have dry skin. It is important to distinguish between dry skin and dehydrated skin. Dry skin is a type of skin caused by insufficient oil production by the skin. Dehydrated skin is a temporary skin condition caused by a lack of sufficient hydration as a result of climatic and environmental factors and not consuming enough water.
How to tell: Your skin is bright, and you can see excess skin oil on your face, neck, shoulders, and back. You may feel the need to cleanse your face in the afternoon when your skin’s oil is at its peak. Your pores are large and easily clogged with white/blackheads, pimples, and cystic acne.
How to tell: Your skin is oily, and has large pores or acne in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and cheeks), but is dry or normal on the cheeks and chin line. This type of skin requires care, as 2 different classes of products must be used for each of the areas. Goal: To achieve balance.
How to tell: Your skin is free of visible large effects, not too much oil, dryness, and acne that rarely appear and go away quickly without much effort. Reactions to products rarely happen.
How to tell: If your skin is irritated or reddens easily, if you itch, feel dry, or reddens easily then you have sensitive skin. Your skin reacts quickly to a new product and easily reddens in temperature. People with sensitive skin suffer more from burning skin and eczema and/or rosacea can often be encountered.
