HOW TO KNOW YOUR SKIN TYPE ?
Listed below are some methods by which you will get to know how to check skin type.
● For Oily Skin
People with oily skin type, generally have excess oils which make the skin appear shiny or greasy. Also, pimples, blackheads, and acne keep occurring on their skin, more often on oily areas.
Moreover, if you have oily skin, you will have large-sized pores visible on your skin. And, when you apply makeup, you will notice that it doesn’t stick to your face.
● For Dry Skin
Dry skin usually feels tight, particularly after showering or swimming. If your skin feels rough or harsh on touching and your hands keep reaching out for a moisturizer, it indicates you have dry skin.
Furthermore, inflammation or itching, flaking, fine lines, peeling and cracks are common problems for people who fall under this category. And, they will have tiny pores, which appear very frequently.
● For Normal or Combination Skin
Firstly, it is essential to know, what is combination skin?
A combination of skin is a mix of oily and dry skin.
So, people with combination skin types have an oily texture on their T-zone ( the central part of your face, together with nose, forehead and chin) and dryness on the rest of the facial region.
Another way of examining it is through seasonal patterns, meaning if your skin becomes oily in summer and dry in winter, you have combination skin.
Besides, you will have larger clogged pores around your nose and tiny ones on your cheeks and forehead.
SKIN TYPE TEST: A QUICK WAY OF FINDING YOUR SKIN TEXTURE TYPES

● Blotting Method
It is a speedy and easy way to identify your kind of skin. All you have to do is take a blotting paper or cotton and gently rub it on your skin.
If after rubbing ,you see an oily residue on the paper, you most likely have oily skin. If it has no or very less oil, it means you have dry skin. Lastly, if it appears oily only on your T Zone, it indicates you have combination skin.
● Bare Face Method
Firstly wash your face with a mild cleanser and keep it bare( do not put on any moisturizers or cream or serum) for at least 1 hr.
After 1 hr, if your skin feels dry and tight, you most probably belong to the dry skin category. If it appears greasy or oily, only on your T-zone, then you have combination skin. In the end, if your overall face looks shiny , the chances are that you have oily skin.
