How to discover your real skin type
Dry, sensitive, oily, combination, normal – these are some of the ways you’d describe your skin when asked. Sometimes, it may even be a mix of two. That said, when trying to determine your skin type before making a skincare purchase, it’s important to properly understand the difference between these skin types and know for sure which category your complexion falls into.
Other things to keep in mind is that your skin is an organ and changes with the seasons. If you’re stressed, it’ll likely be more sensitive or dry. If you’re travelling, things might start looking or feeling a bit greasy. If you’re a woman and are menstruating, you may breakout in a pimple or two.
But whatever it is, when in doubt, simply ask a professional. Like a beauty advisor or even reaching out to us via Facebook or Instagram with your questions. In the meantime, here are some key things to look out for when trying to determine your skin type. And yes, there’s most definitely a difference between dry and dehydrated skin.
