How to know your skin type



What is my skin type? How to know? 


🔶 In the morning, wash your face with any mild and gentle Facewash. Don't over wash your face. And then wipe your face gently with towel.

🔶After washing your face wait for an hour. Do not apply anything on your face, no moisturizer, no toner, nothing. Leave your face as it is.

🔶After an hour, take a tissue and pat your T-zone area with it. Look at the tissue to determine if oil rubbed off on it.

🔶If the oil is rubbed on the tissue it means your T-zone area is oily.

🔶For oily skin -  Your T-zone area is oily as well as your cheeks and all over your face is oily and you have a shine on your face.

🔶For combination skin - Your T-zone area is oily but your cheeks became dry it means you have a combination skin.

🔶For dry skin - Your face became dry and tight and you need to moisturize your face and T-zone is also dry .

🔶For normal skin -  After washing, your face will not get dry, not oily and your T-zone area too. It means you have a normal skin and you don't have to take care too much of your skin.

🔶For sensitive skin - After washing ,When your face get irritated , itchy and rash it means you have a sensitive skin.

NOTE:- T-zone area is the area of forehead and  nose. The upper part of T-zone area is forehead and lower part is nose . They together make a T-shape.

HOW TO TREAT YOUR SKIN

1) OILY SKIN

Wash your face in the  morning and before bed. Apply oil control Facewash . Use oil free moisturize. Avoid eating oily foods because it causes pimples. When you see excess oil on your face use blotting paper.

2)DRY SKIN

Moisturize your face with fragrance free cream and use it twice a day atleast. Use gentle Facewash. Drink water. Don't use hot water.

3) COMBINATION SKIN

In this case you have to balance your skin. Use fragrance free gentle Facewash. Use that product which doesn't have oil but moisturizes your face . Eat fish and food with essential fatty oil.

4) NORMAL SKIN

You are lucky if you have a normal skin , you don't need to take care so much of your skin. You can try anything you want even the makeup products. But still, you have wash your face and moisturize it and do all the skin care.

5) SENSITIVE SKIN

Sensitive skin needs too much care . Use a gentle cleanser without any fragrance and chemicals because it can create irritation. Before using any product on your skin do a patch test overnight. If it suits then continue using it.

   So, that's all I told you about different skin types and how you can treat your skin. I hope this will help you to choose the right product for your skin and to know your skin type.
