Four Different Skin Types
It has been established that there are four different skin types: oily, dry, combination and normal. The best way to analyze your skin type is to do the following. 1. Cleanse your skin then wait 4-5 hours. 2. Take a facial tissue and press it against different areas of your face. 3. Hold the tissue up to the light. If the tissue has blotches, then you have oily skin. 4. If your face feels tight and appears dry or itchy and maybe a bit flaky, then be rest assured that you have dry skin. 5. If some areas of your skin are dry and others are oily, then you have combination skin. For an accurate evaluation, this test must be done on a day that you have not applied any creams, moisturizers or make-up. The skin will go through changes, so remember to repeat this again in 6 months.
