Do You Know Your Skin Type?
Skin Types.

Normal Skin:
‘Normal’ is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin. The scientific term for healthy skin is endemic.”

Dry Skin:
"Dry’ is used to describe a skin type that produces less sebum than normal skin. As a result of the lack of sebum, dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences. Dry skin can feel tight and rough and look dull.”

Oily Skin:
"Oily’ is used to describe a skin type with heightened sebum production. This overproduction is known as seborrhea. Oily skin has a glossy shine and visible pores.”

Combination Skin:
"Combination skin is, as the name suggests, skin that consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin.” ~ int.eucerin.com

*The best way to obtain balanced skin is to use a cleanser and toner compatible with your skin type. Cleansers are formulated to remove impurities from the skin. The daily accumulation of dirt, sweat, and oil, as well as make-up not removed, will wreak havoc on your skin. The cleanser should be mild and compatible with your skin type so that it does not irritate your skin. Never - ever use hot water on your face. I use lukewarm water and Manuka honey to cleanse, and cold water to rinse. This closes my pores (For dry skin, use an oil-based cleanser). Honey is a humectant, anti-bacterial, and locks in moisture.

Tone, for double protection. Take a cotton ball or pad and gently press the toner onto your skin this also helps close your pores. I use lavender witch hazel. It leaves my skin refreshed and the lavender not only smells good, but it also relaxes my mind. Then without fail moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. ~ SWFY.
