This is how you determine your skin type

The best care for your skin varies per person. That depends on your skin type. If care products are not suitable for your skin type, you will not achieve the desired effect. And that not only puts a big dent in your expectations, but also your wallet. But how do you know what works? This is how you determine your skin type, read on.

Different skin types

You can only properly assess your skin when it is clean and fresh. Therefore, first wash your face well and then wait 15 to 30 minutes before examining your skin. Ask yourself the following questions: how does your skin feel after washing? And what do you notice about your skin? Then see which skin type gives the best answer to your questions.

Skin type normal

What is normal? This is debatable, but normal skin feels soft after washing and is usually described as skin that does not feel dry or greasy. Furthermore, few impurities or blackheads are visible.

Skin type dry

Do you notice that your skin is tight after washing? Then there is a good chance that you have a dry skin type. This may also be visible in some flaky spots. Dry skin often does not show blackheads and the pores are small.

Skin type oily

If you have oily skin, your skin will not feel tight after washing. You regularly suffer from pimples or blackheads and your pores are clearly visible. In addition, your skin can quickly get a shiny glow.

Skin type combination

Do you not fall into the dry or greasy category? Then you probably have a combination skin type and that means that your skin is both dry and oily at the same time. Your cheeks are usually drier than the rest and the T-zone: nose and forehead shine quickly. Furthermore, you can clearly see that your pores are not all the same size and you quickly suffer from impurities or blackheads.

This is how you determine your skin type!
