Your skin is the largest organ in your body, so understanding and determining what your skintype is, is so powerful. The most important thing in caring for your skin, comes with understanding your skin and how it adapts to certain situations (seasons, hormones…). Every person's skin is unique, but there are a few common skin types and conditions. It can be really helpful to determine where your skin fits in the most - so you can choose products that is more likely to suit your skin.
 

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SKIN TYPE

  1. WASH YOUR FACE - with a gentle cleanser 
  2. PAT DRY WITH GENTLE TOWEL
  3. LEAVE YOUR FACE BARE - don’t add any products yet and wait for 20-30 minutes
  4. EXAMINE YOUR SKIN & DETERMINE HOW IT FEELS

  • NORMAL: skin feels smooth. No signs of dryness, T-zone feels & looks balanced
  • DRY: skin feels tight, can even feel irritated. It may have dry & flaky patches. 
  • OILY: skin has shine on the T-zone & on the cheeks. It feels greasy & you can have breakouts, large pores and blackheads
  • COMBINATION: oily T-zone, but the rest of the skin feels normal/dry 

 

Next to your skin type, your skin can also have skin conditions or special concerns (these are not the same as skin type). These conditions can be temporary, but can also be a long-term problem for reasons such as inherited or illness...

  • SENSITIVE: reactive to products, often feels dry or dehydrated
  • AGING: wrinkles, uneven skin tone, lack of elasticity
  • ACNE: blackheads, pustules, whiteheads, cysts - painful to touch
  • DEHYDRATION: can look dull, skin absorbs moisturizers really quickly. Liquid foundation can look uneven and patchy
  • HYPERPIGMENTATION
  • COUPEROSE: permanent redness. Burning, tingling feeling


Now that you know a bit more about your skin - it’s not always easy to find the right skincare routine. Here we give you a little help. But please, keep in mind, your skin can change in time, plus not all products will work. It’s often trial and error.
