What is your skin type?

All you need to know about different skin types. What is your skin type. How to find out about your skin type.

There are different skin types and it’s essential for you to know your own skin so you can provide your skin with the correct products.
For example, if you have sensitive skin, then you should keep away from a lot of artificial products as that could have a bad effect on your skin. If you know you have sensitive skin, then it’s easy to go into a store and find something suitable for your skin. Not all the products that say ‘suitable for sensitive skin’ will be suitable for your skin. Everyone’s skin is different and it’s a matter of trial and error. I hope this post will give you an idea of what your skin type is or could be. 

1. Sensitive skin 

If you have sensitive skin, you can try to find out what triggers you may have, so you can avoid them. Skincare products may make your skin react. If you have sensitive skin then a certain product could be a trigger. Sensitive skin can show up as redness, itchiness, burning, and even dryness.

2. Oily skin 

Oily skin is more likely to produce big pores, blackheads, pimples, other blemishes, and even have a result in a dull or shiny complexion. 

3. Dry skin

Dry skin can be very noticeable in pores, flaky skin, have red patches and a dull complexion. Dry skin can be caused or made worse by ageing or hormonal changes, weather, such as the cold, indoor heating, long baths/showers and ingredients in cosmetic products.

4. Combinational skin 

A combinational skin type can be normal, dry, or oily in some areas. A combinational skin type will have two different skin types in some areas and another in other areas. For example, someone with a combinational skin type may have dry or normal skin in some areas and oily in others. Another example is someone having sensitive and dry skin.

5. Normal skin

A normal skin type will not be too dry and not too oily. Normal skin have no or very few imperfections, hardly any sensitivity, and barely visible pores. If your skin is a normal skin type then you will have a radiant complexion. 

6. Ageing skin

The first signs of ageing normally begin from the age of 25 onwards. The two main signs of ageing are fine lines and wrinkles. There are a lot of different ways to prevent your skin from ageing. Also, your lifestyle and the skincare products you use have a massive impact. 

I hope this post will help you pick the correct types of beauty/skincare products that are suitable for your skin type. Every skin is different and everyone has different triggers so it’s important to look into your skin type and try to help your skin as best as you can. 

I would love to know in the comments below what sort of skin type you have and what products help your skin?

Thanks for reading!
Until next time, take care, and keep smiling.
