How can you tell what kind of skin you have? And how can you find products that will be effective on your skin type? You may not know it, but your skin type is determined by several factors, including your genes, environmental exposures, and age. Knowing your skin type can help you make smart choices about the products you use. Here’s what to look for to find out what kind of skin you have and how to take care of it.
Understanding Your Skin Type
In general, skin types can be divided into three categories: dry, oily, and combination. Dry skin doesn’t retain moisture well and may become itchy and irritated if exposed to harsh soaps or cleansers; those with oily skin produce excess oil and tend to have clogged pores; combination skin has a little bit of both qualities. The best way to determine your skin type is by consulting a dermatologist. You should also know that there are other characteristics, such as sun sensitivity, in determining one’s skin type. But generally speaking, you should wash your face twice daily using mild cleansers and choose products suited for your particular kind of skin - never ignore proper cleansing techniques! Always remember that effective skincare begins at home! Cleansers will help keep your complexion healthy and cleanse away impurities, dirt, oil and bacteria without drying out skin. Exfoliating toners containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) help eliminate dead cells from skin surface to improve its texture and appearance. Moisturizers with built-in SPF protect against dryness caused by environmental conditions such as pollution and UV rays from sunlight.
Benefits of Knowing Your skin Type:
Knowing your skin type helps you identify what products work best for your particular needs. For example, if you have dry skin, it’s important to moisturize after a shower or bath. If you have oily skin, it’s a good idea to wash your face at night before bed and use a non-oily toner during the day.
How To Take Care of Different Skin Types:
If you want to take care of your skin properly, you need to first know what type of skin you have. There are three major types of skin: oily, dry and combination. Knowing your skin type will make it easier for you to pick a cleanser or moisturizer that’s best for you and your needs. Below is an overview of each type with tips on how to care for them properly. Dry Skin Combination skin takes care of itself when it comes to avoiding acne breakouts. Oily skin doesn't naturally produce sebum at optimal levels; therefor the primary concern is keeping pores clear and healthy by minimizing excess oil production without drying out (which can cause even more excess oil production in response). Proper hygiene is key to taking good care of your skin, regardless of its type or condition.
