Taking care of your skin is important, but that means you have to have the right products. Skincare products are far from one-size-fits-all. In fact, there’s quite a wide variety of options, and if you don’t know which type of skin you have, your helpful products could actually be harming your skin.
So, therein lies the secret. In order to find the skincare elements that work best for you, you need to know if you have dry, oily, or sensitive skin. Once you unlock this mystery, the right skincare products will begin to fall into place.
Certain types of skin are more susceptible to imperfections than others.
Normal skin typically has few imperfections, if any.
Combination skin is often prone to blackheads.
Dry skin tends to have more visible lines and wrinkles and often presents red patches or simply appears with a dull, rough complexion.
Oily skin is often faced with many blemishes, including blackheads and pimples, which occur when the excessive oil clogs the pores.
Sensitive skin doesn’t usually have to deal with imperfections, per se, but those with this skin type certainly have their own woes to deal with.
Normal, oily, and combination skin tends not to exude severe sensitivities.
Dry skin can easily become irritated, inflamed, or itchy.
Obviously, sensitive skin ranks high on the sensitivity scale. Sensitive skin often has certain triggers that make it more unbearable at some times than others. If this describes you, your best bet is figuring out what your skin’s triggers are so you can do your best to avoid them in the future.
Pores often provide a tell-tale sign as to what type of skin a person has. The level of visibility of a person’s pores goes in this order:
Dry skin – almost invisible pores
Normal skin – barely visible pores
Combination skin – pores that look larger than normal
Oily skin – enlarged pores that can often lend themselves to a thick complexion
