How to Determine Your Skin Type

Published on by

Before beginning any skincare consultation you are asked, what skin type do you have? Although it may sound like a simple question many of us may not know or have not evaluated our skin in quite some time. It’s important to remember that our skin changes over the years and even in different seasons.

This simple skin type test will help to determine your skin type so that you can best address your individual skin care needs:

First wash your face with a cleanser made for normal skin, rinse well with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel.

After allowing your skin to rest for about an hour, it’s time to evaluate your skin. How does it feel?

-If it’s tight, flaky, or ashy your skin type is dry.

-If you’re slightly oily across the forehead, down the nose and on the chin (T-zone areas) then you are normal to combination.

-If you are shiny all over and need a tissue to blot excess oil, then you are oily.

Remember it’s important to reevaluate a few times a year, as our skin changes seasonally and as hormones fluctuate.
