Knowing your skin type is absolutely necessary in order to make a right decision about a proper skin care or treatment, which is suitable for your particular skin needs. The primary quality or type of your skin is genetically determined.
The health and beauty of your skin depends on what you eat and how you take care of yourself. A popular saying states that, after the age of 30, a woman looks the way she deserves. To look perfect, the first step is to determine your skin type so that you can match it with the best methods to improve your look and slow the aging process.
Usually, we can single out five basic skin types: normal, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive.
To define your type, you can use a simple test with a clean facial tissue to wipe your face in the morning:
If you skin is a normal type, the tissue will not leave any traces of oil. Your skin should feel vibrant, elastic, and soft. Normal skin is the least problematic type. It looks clean and smooth and has a good circulation and healthy complexion. Even with a minimum care, it will look perfect into your advanced age.
If you have oily skin, the paper will have spots of facial oil on it, from the areas of your cheeks, nose, and forehead. Oily skin is problematic it usually looks greasy, thick and shiny, has enlarged pores, and tends to break into acne. A good thing, is that oily skin is not inclined much to aging and wrinkling. Careful cleaning, minimizing of carbohydrate consumption can be helpful in improving the quality of oily skin.
If you skin is combination, like most of the women, the tissue will have traces of oil coming from your nose and forehead, but will be clean in the areas that touched your cheeks. Combination skin has areas of both dry and oily skin, and it requires different types of care in relation to particular facial areas. Dry zones, which are usually located on the cheeks and around the eyes, should be treated with creams and moisturizers and oily areas, usually on the forehead and nose, will benefit from frequent and comprehensive cleaning.
If your skin is dry, the paper will be clean, too, but your face skin will feel tight and dry after you have wiped it. Dry skin can easily develop a sallow tone, wrinkles, and fine pores, and it is very prone to aging and irritating. It might still look great on a young person. You should apply perfect care and use regular skin or beauty treatments to keep it healthy.
Sensitive skin is usually very dry, tends to feel tight and irritated easily. Usually, sensitive skin develops reddish and scaly areas, can be itchy and tingly. It is the most problematic skin type, which needs a very special care.
