What Is My Skin Type?

  1. Normal Skin
  2. Dry Skin
  3. Oily Skin
  4. Combination Skin


One of the tips for having smooth and healthy skin is to use the correct skincare products. It should be the right cleansers, moisturizers, soaps and many others. When I mean the correct or right products, I mean products that were specifically made for your skin type. Just like those skincare products, one person’s skin is different from another. This difference can depend on how much moisture is in the skin. How elastic it is. How oily or how sensitive it is. A certain product might work for one individual but there is a possibility that it can have negative effects on another. That is why finding the right product for your skin is essential if you want to have healthy skin. The big question is, how do you know which skin type you have?


Normal Skin

Normal skin is, well, normal. It is not too dry or too oily. It has no severe sensitivity, a good complexion and barely visible pores. This is the easiest skin type to care of. No need for special cleansers or moisturizers. If you have this skin type, just follow your basic skincare routines and you’re good to go.


Dry Skin

Dry skin is characterized by a dull and rough complexion due to the lack of moisture. Red patches and fine lines are also visible. Skin is less elastic and the pores are almost invisible. If you have this skin type, make sure to always hydrate and use moisturizers.


Oily Skin

Oily skin is characterized by a dull and shiny complexion and the presence of blackheads and pimples. For those who have oily skin, noncomedogenic skincare products are your best bet. Noncomedogenic products are products that do not block the pores. And do not squeeze or pop out those pimples.

Combination Skin

This is the so-called middle ground of skin types. Your skin is dry in some areas while oily in other areas. The T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin) area is the most common of those oily areas. People who have this skin type have shiny skin, larger pores and tend to have blackheads.
