Unless you went to dermatology or cosmetology school, chances are, you’ve figured out what works and doesn’t work for your skin with lots of trial and error.
Now, don’t get us wrong. A little guesswork is to be expected if you’re not a skincare expert, but at the very least, knowing your skin type and what to look for in products can help you choose the right ones for your skin and guide you as you create your ultimate routine!
Whether your skin is dry, oily, sensitive, or normal will affect the way products work on your skin, so here are some do’s and don’ts to choosing the right skincare for your specific skin type:
Do: Know your skin type.
First things first, get to know your skin. There are five types of healthy skin: dry, oily, sensitive, or normal. Keep reading the descriptions below to see which one checks out for you, and remember, everyone’s skin is unique, so it’s normal if your skin’s characteristics overlap between categories!
- Dry skin: cracked skin, itchiness, redness, and a feeling of roughness and tightness.
- Oily skin: large pores, shiny, and humid appearance to skin.
- Normal skin: regular texture, not too dry, and not too oily.
- Sensitive skin: delicate, reactive skin, redness, itching, or feeling of discomfort.
Don’t: Buy products without doing research.
Each skin type requires different needs, so you’ll want to keep a close eye on the ingredients list of a product before you buy it.
Knowing your skin type already puts you miles ahead in your research because you can filter your search when you shop online on sites like Epionce and only view products that work best for your unique skin type!
Do: Understand your needs.
Once you’ve figured out what your skin type is, your next step should be to assess where your major concerns lie.
Knowing that you’d like to diminish your fine lines, or minimize the appearance of texture, for example, makes it easier to choose products that not only work for your skin but effectively help you reach your skincare goals.
Don’t: Hesitate to consult with a professional.
