An effective skincare routine is important to help keep your skin looking its best. However, figuring out your true skin type can be challenging as your skin’s needs change over time. Each skin is different and learning what works for your unique skin can help you understand the most ideal options to achieve a healthier and flawless complexion.
Criteria such as genetics, sensitivity level, hydration, elasticity, and skin tone are considered when determining skin types. Based on such factors, skin types can be broadly classified as follows:
The easiest way to test your skin is to see how it performs on a typical day from morning through evening.
01. The Bare-Faced Method
For this method, wash your face using a cleanser and examine it after half an hour. If your face feels parched, you most likely have dry skin. If your forehead, nose and cheeks feel greasy, you have oily skin. Whereas, if only the forehead and nose appear greasy, but your cheeks feel dry, you have combination skin.
2. The Blotting Sheet Method
For this method, pat a sheet on different parts of your face. Then, hold it up to see how much oil is noticeable. If the sheet has absorbed little or no oil, you have dry skin. If it has absorbed oil from the t-zone, you have combination skin. If the sheet is soaked in oil, your skin type is oily.
