It is important to know your skin type as it is the first step of giving appropriate care and treatment to your skin. There are various methods used to find out one's skin type such as machine with skin analysis capabilities or easier methods by observing the characteristics with eyes.

Usually it gets started by observing the amount of sebum secretion, skin's radiance, skin elasticity, any allergies toward cosmetics, compare the results with the characteristics of each skin type, and you can more or less determine your skin type.

The common skin types are as follow:

    Excess sebum secretion causes skin appearing greasy and shiny with blackheads and clogged pores. Oily skin is usually susceptible to dermatitis, acne and pustules.
  • Dry Skin
    Uneven and dull skin tone due to insufficient oil excretion. Skin appears to be dry, strained and saggy. Dry skin may experience slough off of skin and susceptible to Pigmentation.
  • Combination Skin
    Skin is sometimes dry or oily due to imbalanced skin pH, skin texture appears 'dirty', dull and lackluster. T-Zone is susceptible to breakouts of comedones and blackhead, large pores, pimples. May have fine lines at cheeks and around the eyes.
