What type of skin do you have?


To create perfect skin you have to treat each individual cell with in perfectly. You need to know if the skin needs more water, less oil or just leaving alone to calm down and stop getting hot and bothered. The only way you’re going to do this is to know your skin type. Now you may think you know this already, but many of us are wrong.{{more}} For starters, skin types change with age, so oily skin in your teens doesn’t mean oily skin in your twenties, thirties or forties. Skin types can also change with the seasons, as temperatures affect the levels of oil and water in the skin, they can change your diet and even according to the time of the month, so truly know your skin type, you have to reassess it regularly. Doing so is easy just answer the following questions and see which better you choose most often:

1. First thing in the morning take a look at your face in bright light. What do you see?

a) It’s shiny with noticeable blackheads

b) It looks flaky and feels taut

c) My forehead, chin and nose are shiny, rest is tight and flaky

d) It’s very pale, and there are occasional red or flaky patches

e) The surface is dull, dry and there are noticeable lines and wrinkles.

2. Wash your skin with some plane soap and water. Wait for about 20 minutes- now what so you notice?

a) It looks less shiny

b) It looks and feels tighter- plus its gone a grey colour

c) It’s less shiny on my nose and forehead but now my cheeks feel dreadful

d) It’s itchy, red and flaky
