Get To Know Your Skin Type

Updated: Aug 15

It's always good to listen to your skin.

Understanding and getting to know your skin type is one of the most important things you can do for your skin. If you're unaware or misinformed, you could compromise your skin's natural balance and trigger irritation, inflammation, breakouts, and even premature aging by using the wrong products.

The most common types are oily, acne-proned, dry, sensitive, and mature skin. It's also important to note that you can be more than one type and that your skin type can change from season to season and depending on how hydrated it is.

According to WebMd, it's good to evaluate your skin type periodically.

Sensitive Skin can show up as: redness, itching, burning, dryness

Normal Skin can show up as: not too dry and not too oily, no or few imperfections, so severe sensitivity, barely visible pores, a radiant complexion

Combination Skin can show up as: pores that look larger than normal because they’re more open, blackheads, shiny skin

Oily Skin can show up as: enlarged pores, dull or shiny, thick complexion, blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes

Dry Skin can show up as: almost invisible pores, dull or rough complexion, red patches, less elastic skin, more visible lines

Mature Skin can show up as: drier and finer skin, dehydrated, lack luminosity, lack tone and firmness, deep wrinkles, pallid color, open pores, hyperpigmentation and age darkspots

This might surprise you or maybe not. Your skin type can change over time. It's important to pay attention. For example, younger people are more likely than older folks to have a normal skin type. Hormones and can effect your skin is responding as well.
