Having beautiful skin begins with knowing your skin type and choosing the best skin care. There are 1000s of commercial skin care products made for the entire population, making it important to know your skin type in order to choose the right ones for you. In all there are 5 basic skin types.

Tips:

- Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.

-Apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn.

-Moisturize when necessary.

- Remove makeup before going to sleep.


2. Dry skin

- Pick oil based products to assist with dryness.

3. Oily skin

Oily skin is characterized by a greasy and shiny appearance, with larger pores. It is prone to acne breakouts such as pimples and black heads. Oily skin is a result of excess sebum production.

4. Sensitive skin

Tips:

- Know your allergies to know which products are suitable for you.

-Apply sunscreen.


5. Combination skin

This is a mix of oily and dry skin. It is mostly oily on the T-zone which is made up of the forehead, nose and cheeks. It breaks out and irritates easily around the T-zone.

Tips:

-Stay hydrated.

-Use a cleanser.

-Exfoliate once in a while.

-Apply oil free suncreeen.

- Do not go to bed with makeup.


How to determine your skin type?

Take a sheet of blotting paper preferably or tissue. Gently pat it on your face. Hold it against a bright light. If you notice a little to no oil you have dry skin. If the blot paper/ tissue sheets picks up oil you are likely to have oily skin, like the one on the picture below. Try this in the morning after you wake up or in the evening before washing your face for effective results.
