How to know your own skin type?

For girls out there who want to start working over their skin for improving their personality I would suggest that before getting in to any treatment or product, its very important to know your own skin type. After that you can choose whats best for you in the market full of wide range of beauty products.
Here is some basic information for you.

There are three basic types of skin: 
  • Dry
  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Sensitive and
  • Combination
How to Know Your own Skin Type:

The simple way of knowing your skin type is by observing how much oil is produced by your skin.

Genes, diet, stress level, hormonal fluctuations, medication and even your skincare regimen all determine how much oil your skin produces.
Follow the simple steps below to know your skin type:
  • When you wake up in the morning take a facial tissue and wipe it over your face.

Dry Skin:

If you have dry skin tissue will stay clean and your skin will feel tight and dry after wiping.
Its O.K for young people but with increasing age it need proper regular skin care specially moisturizer because this skin type can easily develop a sallow tone, wrinkles, and fine pores, and it can cause fast aging and irritation.

Normal Skin:

If tissue stays dry but your skin feels soft, elastic, and supple then you have normal skin. This skin type is easy to manage because it causes very less problems.

Oily Skin:

If tissue picks up oily spots specially from nose chin and forehead then you have oily skin. Its also problematic type need special care and regular skin care. Face with oily skin usually look dull oily and dark but again with proper skin care you can improve your skin tone.

Sensitive Skin:

If tissue comes out dry and u if u think u feel tight inflammation or irritation mostly then u have sensitive skin. In many cases it causes reddish spots or scaly areas.
Its very important to care for such skin regularly because its most problematic.

Combination Skin:

If tissue get oil only from some area of skin and remaining feels dry then you have combination of dry and oily skin.
This skin type need both oil free and moisturizer protections regarding particular skin area.

Why its important to know your own skin:

Knowing your skin is very important, because now a days markets are full of products truly made for your own skin... so if u apply an product for oily skin over your own dry one... u will get broken or rough skin. Like wise if dry skin product is used on oily skin it will give your face extra unwanted oil making u look dull and oily.

So batter understand what your skin need before getting any change.
