Knowing your skin type will help you pick the right product s for your skin and helps you to provide your skin with the best care. There are 5 basic skin types: Dry, Oily, Normal, Combination & Sensitive. Women who are aging may experience shifts in the normal state of their skin transitioning to dry or sensitive skin as they get older.
Skin always feels tight, looks rough, has small, with possible barely visible pores and is tight and flaky, especially during the winter.
If you have large pores all over your face and your skin gets shiny throughout the day and visible oil appears, then you have oil within your skin, and therefore can be considered an oily skin type.
If your skin produces just a little T-zone oil (mostly in the summer) but the skin doesn’t usually get flaky, though it my feel tight, then you can be considered a normal skin type.
If your pores are larger primarily in the T-zone (across forehead, nose and chin) and visible oil appears in those areas throughout the day, but the skin produces only a little oil in other areas, then you can be considered a combination skin type.
Skin that is thin or a fine-textured, easily irritated, red, rashy, blotchy or prone to allergic reactions. Sensitive skin reacts quickly to temperature changes from heat, cold or wind and can fall into the oily, dry, or combination categories.
