What are the best products for my skin?
Follow these simple steps to determine your skin type:
- Wash your face with a mild cleaner and wait 15-30 minutes.
- Don't apply any products during this time.
- Determine your skin type based on your skin’s natural characteristics.
Normal skin: Your skin feels smooth and, well, normal. There are no signs of flaking or oiliness. The right skincare products will keep your skin looking healthy, smooth and hydrated.
Dry skin: Your skin feels tight and dehydrated and may have flaky areas. The right skincare products will nourish skin, repair skin’s critical barrier and prevent moisture loss.
Oily skin: Your skin looks shiny and may feel slick to the touch. You’re no stranger to breakouts. The right skincare products will balance skin and help it look smoother. For oily skin it’s important to avoid heavy emollient textures.
Combination skin:Your skin usually has an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and is normal to dry everywhere else. Oily parts may have enlarged pores, signs of breakouts and blackheads. With the right products your skin will become more balanced, look smoother and clearer.
