The Importance of Determining Your Skin Type
In order to allow your skincare products to work as effectively as possible, it is important to know your skin type, otherwise your skincare regimen will be out of sync. Moisturizing Oily skin with the wrong moisturizer or being unaware that you in fact have Combination skin can create more problems for your skin rather than help eliminate them. An individual’s skin type is determined by an assortment of skin characteristics, including but not limited to:
- Water content: this influences your skin's elasticity
- Lipid (oil) content: this influences the softness of your skin
- Sensitivity level: this influences your skin reactivity and tolerance to substances like certain products, soaps, chemicals or clothing materials
