How to ID Your Skin Type

How to ID Your Skin Type

Knowing your skin type is the first step in finding out which skincare products are right for you– so we tapped skin therapist Yasmina Lekfif to explain how to tell if you have normal, dry, oily or combination skin. We took notes:

Step One

Take a look at your skin in the mirror, first thing in the morning. You’ll be able to see what your skin looks like, without being affected by skincare. 

Step Two

Does your skin feel dry or itchy? This indicates that you have dry skin. 

Mostly shiny all over? You have oily skin. 

A shiny t-zone (cheeks, nose and chin) with normal or dry cheeks? You have combination skin. 

Not seeing shine or dryness? You have normal skin. 

Step Three

Now that you know your skin type (high five!), you’re well on your way to finding the right serums for you. Take our skin Q&A here and get matched in under two minutes.
