What Is Your Skin Type?

Identifying Your Skin Type:

The first step to properly care for your skin is knowing your skin type. Caring for your face without knowing your skin type is the equivalent of shopping for pants without knowing your size. Everyone falls into five general skin types:

Normal – Consider yourself one of the lucky few. This is the least problematic skin type. Skin is neither oily or flaky and is supple and smooth to the touch.

Dry – Tight skin, often showing flakes of dead skin. Typically associated with small pores.

Oily – Shiny skin, characterized by a layer of oil that can be associated with larger pores.

Combination – The most common skin type where the skin is oily in the “T-zone” shown above and normal to dry in other areas.

Sensitive – Reacts easily to products and irritations, often turning red, itchy or developing a rash.

Soon, I will be putting together a chart of Bellaroma skincare regimens specifically for all of these skin types. It is the most commonly asked question and hopefully it will help you. But as always, please feel free to continue asking me questions if you have any!
