Skin Types & How to Treat Each Type

Skin Types & How to Treat Each Type

Every person’s skin is still unique

Think about your skin for a second. Think about how unique it is, Every single person’s skin is different, with its own array of colors, textures, and features. Yes, there are some similarities between people’s skin, but each and every person’s skin is still unique. And that’s what makes it so beautiful. 

1. Determining your skin type

2. The Bare Faced Method

One of the easiest ways to determine your skin type is by evaluating it right after cleansing. 

This can help you choose a more targeted regime for addressing individual needs, based on what we see and feel when looking at our own freshly cleaned faces! 

To follow this test, start with Gentle Soothing Cleanser before washing face thoroughly; pat dry (don't rub!) 30 minutes later, without using anything else like moisturizers or serums, just let your skin speak volumes and pay attention to how your skin looks and feels.

3. The five basic skin types

Let's look closer into the five main types of skin, and then we’ll dig into our specific recommendations for taking care each type.


The most important thing about normal skin is that it’s simply “normal.” It doesn't mean your face won't have some extra oil after washing, nor does having less than perfect pores mean you're destined for breakouts! Just make sure all those other qualities, like being well balanced in terms of moisture levels across different parts on our body (no obvious dry or oily spots) and not experiencing any persistent problems such as acne/redness-are also present.


Those with dry skin types may notice tightness, peeling and even flaking when they don't have enough moisture. 

While this is true for all people who experience decreased hydration in their outermost layer of the epidermis (known as stratum corneum), it's important not to confuse dehydrated versus normal/healthy sebum production rates, among other things. It turns out that you can be too hydrated! 

Dehydrated skin has absolutely nothing to do with how much water your body absorbs. While dry skins suffers from lack in moisture; it's not because someone isn’t drinking enough fluids. 


Combination skin is a unique type that can be found all over your face. The other types on this list will appear in different spots, but these two merge together to create an interesting texture for those who have it! One side may feel dry while the other has excessive oiliness. The T-zone (forehead/nose/chin) gets excess oil while the other area's of the face will stay balanced or dry.


Oily skin can be defined as having a higher than average amount of sebum (the natural oil). This excess production causes people with this type to notice that their complexion appears shiny, and it may also clog pores, increasing the likelihood for breakouts or blemishes on your face.


If you have sensitive skin, it's likely that there is another condition causing the problem. If your symptoms don't get worse or continue for a while without improving, you might not even be aware that there is an underlying problem. factors for developing delicate complexions include:
Being female (especially after menopause)

having certain allergies, such as hay fever or asthma

using corticosteroids.

Inheriting genes from parents who already had dryness issues

You may not even realize you have it until a product reacts badly, like soap or makeup!

4. Why you need a Custom Skin Care Routine Just for You

We all have different skin types, but there is currently only one approach to the topic of healthy-looking, glowing complexions, which means it's not good enough for everyone. 

A single treatment plan that works in every situation sounds like paradise on earth; however, we mustn't get too excited yet because this dream has yet become reality! 

Your skin is your body's most sensitive organ, so when you add an ingredient into the mix, it can really show how different ingredients affect us. For example, one person might rave about something that works for their friend but have terrible reactions to it themselves because they're more prone to certain problems.
