Know Your Skin!


The foundation of skin care is knowing what type of skin you have. The 6 main skin types are: Dry, Dry Combination, Oily, Oily Combination, Sensitive, and Normal.


How do you know what type of skin you have?


Dry

  • Moderately Dry- When you pinch your skin or smile you see small wave like lines. (NOT WRINKLES!) BUT hydration neglect can lead to premature wrinkles!

  • Severely Dry - Your skin will lack luster and have a dull appearance.

Dry Combination

  • T-zone! Your forehead, nose and chin appear oily or even normal but your cheeks are a bit flaky and vice versa; your forehead, nose and chin are dry and flaky but your cheeks appear normal or have a slight dew.



Oily

  • Your pores are large and clogged

  • Your T-zone is always shining like a diamond and you find yourself constantly dabbing away the unwanted dew.

  • acne is more abundant due to the excess oil.



Oily Combination

  • T-zone! Your forehead, nose and chin are uncontrollably shiny and breakout prone but your cheeks are normal or maybe dry and vice versa; your forehead, nose and chin can be slightly dry or just normal but your cheeks have clogged, un-blur-able pores with hard to remove blackheads and acne.



Sensitive

  • Skin is prone to redness with little to no manipulation.

  • facial brushes and excessive exfoliation cause adverse effects.

  • Add new products into your regimen one at a time, at month intervals to be sure that your skin is not reacting to the new product.


Normal - Ultimate Goal

  • Lucky You! You have found your sweet spot.

  • You know you have normal skin when your skin is no longer overly oily or excessively dry and you are not experiencing constant breakouts.

  • ANYONE can have normal skin once they find the correct regimen to achieve this.
