Skin Type
Do You Know Yours?

Normal, Dry, Oily, Combination, Problem. . .

Skin Type 1 Knowing the type of skin you have is very important.

In order to care for your skin properly you must first determine your skin type.

What's your type?

There are five types of skin:
Normal, Dry, Oily, Combination and Problem Skin

Do you know which type of skin you have?

Each type of skin can present its own challenges in order to keep it looking as good as possible.

Everyone has different skin care needs so determining how to best care for your own particular skin type is the first step in achieving the best results.

Normal Skin:

The skin is soft, supple and smooth. It is fine-textured and free of blemishes (with the exception of periodic blemishes). It has a nice glow and never feels oily or dry.

Less than twenty percent of women have this skin type. If this is your skin type you are fortunate; however, this does not mean that you shouldn't take care of it.

Dry Skin:

This type of skin to has a fine texture and is transparent looking. It feels tight and drawn without moisturizer and tends to have fine lines around the eyes and mouth.

This skin type feels especially dry after washing and may have whiteheads around the eyes and some dry, scaly patches. This type of skin needs lots of moisture and proper care because it shows signs of aging early.

Oily Skin:

The oily complexion is greasy, sallow and course. It has large pores and tends to have pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. The surface of the skin can take on a slick, shiny appearance during the course of the day. Within hours of washing the oiliness will reappear and makeup is usually absorbed quickly.

Combination Skin:

This type of skin is oily in the T zone and the rest of the face is dry. The T zone is the forehead, nose and chin. The extent to which both areas are dry and oily may vary; however, both areas require a separate cleaning routine to restore them to balance.

Problem Skin:

Problem skin is usually oily and has a course texture and is subject to acne. It has large pores, blackheads, red blotches and may become more irritated under stress. If the problem is serious it will require the assistance of a skin specialist and/or dermatologist.
If when applying skin care products you begin to sneeze, wheeze, itch or breakout you are probably allergic. Skin that appears thin, pale and flushes easily and may be sensitive as well as subject to reactions to different products as well as allergies.

If this is the case, treat your skin gently and use hypoallergenic products. 

Knowing your skin type is beneficial in achieving the best results.
