Take This Easy Test to Finally Learn Your Skin Type

Is your skin normal, dry, oily, combination, acne-prone, or sensitive? If you’re like most people, you probably have no idea. But determining your skin type is actually essential for flawless skin, as it’s the only way you can truly curate a personalized skincare regimen. But don’t worry! This 3 step process can help you determine your skin type:

Step 1 – Wash your face with a simple gel cleanser. You can try the Alpessence Gel Cleanser, the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, and the Murad Clarifying Cleasner.

Step 2 – After cleansing, wait about an hour before putting any products on your face. This will allow your skin to return to its natural state.

Step 3 – Take a blotting paper and dab it on your T-Zone to determine your skin type.

Normal skin: You’ll see no oil or flaking skin.

Oily skin: Your oil blotting paper will grease. You might also notice excess shine.

Dry skin: Your skin will feel dry and show flakes of dead skin. We recommend you add a face oil to your moisturizing regimen, like the Caudalie Divine Oile.

Combination: Usually, you’ll notice the skin is oily in the T-zone and normal to dry elsewhere. This is a tricky skin type to master — it’s all about using the right products in the right places.

Yup, knowing your skin type is that easy!
