Normal type

It doesn’t seem oily, either dry. It has a smooth texture and you see fine pores.

Dry-type

Dry skin is easily irritated and you can even notice some flaking or peeling. Steer away from harsh or irritating ingredients, but moisturize and cleanse your skin.

Oily type

The appearance of oily skin is shiny and the pores tend to look larger and it tends to present breakouts. You should aim for a cleanser that unclogs and balances your skin.

Combination type

Combination skin is typically oily in the T-zone but dry in the cheek area and it is possible to experience breakouts.

Sensitive type

Sensitive skin typically becomes irritated, dry, and red. So make sure your cleanser is effective, yet very gently.

Mature

Mature skin presents fine lines and wrinkles, skin tends to look more fragile and the skin tone is not even.

When in doubt, ask an expert about it.
