You have OILY SKIN

People with the oily skin type usually have enlarged pores, a shiny/thick complexion, and a tendency to get blemishes. Your skin produces excess oil, so hydration is not your problem. Your skin needs deep cleansing without abrasive exfoliation, and a non comedogenic moisturizer.

You have DRY SKIN

People with the dry skin type tend to have less visible pores, a dull complexion and an overall tightness. This can be worsened by the weather, air conditioning and harsh soaps. Your skin needs moisture, so use a gentle cleanser and nourishing moisturizer daily, and stay hydrated through out the day with a refreshing face mist.

You have COMBINATION SKIN

People with the Combination Skin Type experience consistently oily T-zone with dryness in other areas of the face. This is true for most people as there are more sebaceous glands around the nose than other areas. Your skin needs specialist products for different areas to create a balance. Try more versatile products and focus on deeper cleansing in the T-zone, and layered moisturizers in the dry areas.

You have NORMAL SKIN

LUCKY YOU! You have the healthy skin that everyone else dreams about. You may experience a little oilyiness in the T-zone in certain climates, but nothing major. Keep your skin healthy and glowy by not using any harsh products or treatments that may upset your skin's balance.

or SENSITIVE SKIN

Your skin shows signs of sensitivity which is a condition, not a skin type. Try to avoid abrasive or harsh products with SLS, alcohol and fragrances. Consult a beauty therapist to find out more.
