Vaalnest Spa Tips & Tricks - How to find out your skin type

Posted by Vaalnest on Thu May 26, 2016 in Vaalnest Spa & Health.

When purchasing facial skincare items, such as cleansers, toners and moisturisers, you often need to know which skin type you are in order to buy the most suitable product. Use our quick fire question guide to determine your skin type.

OILY Skin

·  Do you find it hard to get that clean feeling?

·  Are you prone to acne or breakouts?

·  Do you have a slight shine?

·  Does your makeup come off easily?

·  Do you have open pores?

If you answered yes to more than two of these questions, you have an oily skin type. Oily skins have over-productive sebaceous glands, but on a positive note, the extra oil in the skin means it is better hydrated and will take longer for the effects of ageing (lines and wrinkles) to be seen in someone with an oily skin. 

COMBINATION of Oily & Dry Skin

Do you have dry skin in some places or at certain times of the year, but an oily T-zone (across your forehead and on your nose)?
Do you have open pores in some places?
If so, your skin type is combination. Combination skins must endure a balancing act with their skin care and makeup regime to keep their cheeks sufficiently hydrated and their T-zone matt.  Sometimes, such as in cold weather, more hydration will be required.

NORMAL Skin

Does your skin neither feel dry nor oily?
Does it feel sufficiently hydrated?
If so, you have a normal skin type. Normal skin types must still use a good skincare regime to keep their skin healthy and balanced.

DRY Skin

Does your skin feel tight and uncomfortable after cleansing?
Do you have flaky skin?
Can you see fine dehydration lines when you pinch your skin together?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have a dry skin type. It is very important to keep your skin well hydrated with a good moisturiser to prevent premature ageing. Sensitive skins are often dry.
