Know Your Skin Type
Your actual skin type is determined based on your oil production.
To check your oil supply, cleanse your face. After 90 minutes, wipe all areas of your face with a tissue.
Step 1: Select Your Skin Type
Sensitive - your skin is thin and reacts easily to hot and cold; broken capillaries, allergic reactions, fine pores all describe your skin.
Normal - your skin is smooth with medium pores and has a healthy glow.
Combination - you are oily in the T- zone (forehead, nose & chin) and can be normal to dry on the cheeks; your pores are larger.
Oily/acne prone - your skin is thick and shiny with enlarged pores; you are prone to blackheads and blemishes.
Step 2: Identify Skin Conditions
Breakouts - acne, blackheads, white heads.
Sensitive - easily irritated.
