Skin test: what’s your type

It’s important to ask yourself a few questions in order to make better decisions when purchasing beauty products. They are not a ‘one size fits all’ kind of thing.

How does your skin look when it’s clean, un-moisturized? Is the texture
Flaky (dry)
Shiny (oily)
Or smooth (normal)

How does your skin feel right after you wash it with your currant cleansers? If it feels tight, it’s an indication of dry skin

Half way through the day how does you skin look? Is it dry, shiny or matte?

How are your everyday lifestyle factors doing to your skin? Stressed? Hormonal fluctuations? Sun exposure? Poor diet?

Does your skin have noticeable sun damage? How are you protecting your skin from harmful rays? Are you putting it on often enough? Are you using harsh sprays that contain alcohol?

Answering questions like these can help you get a better understanding of your natural skins behaviour and also recognize the chemical influences your inflicting on your skin. This will help determine the most effective cleansing, hydration, sunscreen and make up products you should be using.
However when problematic skin shows no improvements or worsens, see a dermatologist.
