What is your skin type?
Having a good skin care routine is essential for healthy and glowing skin. But before you start, it’s important to know your skin type. Are you dry, oily, normal or combination?
Dry skin is usually flaky and tight, while oily skin is shiny and greasy. Normal skin is neither dry nor oily, and combination skin can be both dry and oily in different areas.
For example, if you have dry skin, you should look for moisturizers that are hydrating and nourishing If you have oily skin, look for oil-free products that won’t clog your pores.
If you’ve never had a skin care routine before and just let your skin be, that’s your skin type. To find out more accurately, try the “tissue test”. After washing your face with a gentle cleanser, pat dry with a tissue and observe the oil residue left on the tissue. If there is no oil residue, then you have dry skin; if there is some oil residue then you have normal/combination skin; if there is a lot of oil residue then you have oily skin.
