Skincare is a part of our daily routine. We use several products to keep our skin youthful and charming. But, sometimes we don’t get the right result of using those products as expected. Why does it happen? The real reason for it is we didn’t use the right product based on our skin type.

Basic Skin Types:

When we speak about skin types, we talk about Dry, Combination, and Oily skin types. These are the basic skin types and any of them can even have a sensitive one.

Dry Skin:

Dry skin feels tight entire day and it also experiences flaking. It may happen due to heredity, diet, or weather.

Combination Skin:

With this kind of skin, one may feel dryness in the cheeks, but no breakouts there.

Oily Skin:

When sebaceous glands of the skin produce too much sebum, then the skin becomes oily. In general, oily skin prevents aging, but this kind of skins gets clogged pores and acne.

To check your skin type 1st you need to clear your skin with cleanser and wash it properly. Now, gently pat dry and keep it bare for 30 to 60 minutes. After this particular time, if your entire face becomes very tight or feeling tight while making a facial expression, you definitely have dry skin. If not you might have either oily or combination skin. Now you have to check if you can mark a noticeable shine on your nose and forehead.
