Check this while you cleanse

How does your skin feel right after cleansing?  If it feels tight, you may havedry skin — whereas, smooth and clean skin is a sign of oily skin. Or do you feel both - tight cheeks and a clean T zone? Then you have a combination skin. If certain cleansers or facial products give you itchy and red skin, you have sensitive skin.

Dab your T-zone with a tissue

Wait for one hour after cleansing. Wipe your T-zone with a tissue and see how it looks. If there is oil in it, you could have an oily or combination skin.

PS: T-zone includes your nose bridge and forehead. Run your fingers and you will know why it's called a T-zone. Doesn’t it look like a T-zone?

Look for your skin's behavior

Pinch your skin and see how it reacts. Does your skin form wrinkles after pinching? If yes, chances are you have dry or sensitive skin. If your skin looks smooth after pinching, this is a sign of oily or combination skin. Keep observing your skin as the day continues. If it gets greasy, oily skin is what you have. 

Pore size tells it all

Take a look at your skin in the mirror. Are your pores visible? If yes, look for its size. Visible but not large pores are a sign of normal skin. Then take a few steps back and look if you can still see your pores. If you can, then you have oily skin. Near or far, if you can't see any visible pores at all, then it's dry skin. If you can see the combination of all these signs, conclude that you have a combination skin.

Seek professional help

If none of the above steps helps you sort it out, then it's time to visit a dermatologist. They can not only help you find out your skin type, but can also prescribe the right medications for your skin concerns. So, don't stress yourself — you have multiple options.

Different skincare for different skin types

Now that you know how to check your skin type, you would have reached a conclusion on your skin type. So let’s see how to take care of your skin based on its type.

Oily skin

Feeling greasy throughout the day can be troublesome. But cleansing your face more than twice is not the solution. Instead, use blotting paper to absorb that excess oil. Another question that troubles many of us is this ー does oily skin need moisturizing? Definitely. Using non-comedogenic moisturizers that won't clog your pores can do wonders for oily skin. 

Dry skin

Start with gentle cleansers that won't make your skin feel tighter. And moisturizing is the magical remedy for dry skin. It keeps that rough and dry skin free from irritations and rashes.  This will help to keep your skin smooth, supple, and healthy.

Combination skin

This type of skin needs a little of both oily and dry skincare regimen. T-zones will be oily while the rest of the face will be tight. So, set your skincare regimen accordingly. And remember this. Finding the skincare regimen that actually works for this skin type takes time and patience.

Sensitive skin

If you have sensitive skin, be careful while choosing skincare products. Some of them can cause skin rashes and redness. So, look for fragrance-free and hypoallergenic ingredients, and choose the right products for your skin. And do a patch test before applying it — this saves your sensitive skin from the trouble of skin rashes and irritations.
