You’ve tried everything from brand A to B, but all the skincare products you’ve bought don’t seem to work well on your skin. Some even exacerbate problems like acne breakouts or skin irritations. And that’s because you’re skipping the first and most important step—knowing your skin type.
Why Is It Important To Know What My Skin Type Is?
Because different skincare products target different skin types, understanding your skin type will help you open doors to finding the right solutions for your skin.
Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all magic cream for skincare; your skin is delicate and unique to your genetics and the environment you live in. Striking the right balance is key to preventing skin issues today and forever, but that also indicates how crucial it is to understand your own skin type’s strengths and weaknesses. In short, identify your skin type, and your facial skincare products will naturally start working for you.
These are 4 main categories of skin types you can test for:
- Combination skin, and
So, which skin type are you?
1. Oily Skin
If you have visibly large pores and often have an unflattering greasy sheen on your face, you have oily skin. It’s a bothersome condition that makes you prone to acne, whiteheads, blackheads, and in more severe cases, large pimples deep within the skin that can’t be popped—not something a mere oil blotting paper can fix.
Recommended skincare: Whether it’s creams, serums, sunblock, or cosmetics, what’s essential here is to go for a product that doesn’t weigh on your face. Select one that’s lightweight with a matte finish to keep the shine away. You should also include go-to skincare products in your everyday routine that helps you level out the overproduction of sebum.
Oily skin belongs to one end of the spectrum that signifies your skin is out of balance. To tip the scales back to normal, blemish-free skin, you’ll first need to restore order back into your skin.
That’s where the Sheroxi Hydro Skin Rebalancing Toner comes in. Fill your skin cells with the natural nutrients it needs while regaining balance all at the same time. Gentle, light, and easy to use, it’s the best toner for any skin type, from oily, combination, to dry skin.
2. Dry Skin
Characterised by flaky, tight skin, it burns when you apply creams and lotions because of minute cracks in your skin. You can even look older than you are due to the fine lines and wrinkles that form easily on your face.
Recommended skincare: Go deep and inject moisture into your skin. Hydrating moisturisers, serums, night face masks, and gentle, sensitive skin cleansers are your best bet when it comes to retaining moisture. The bottom line is you don’t want to strip the oil you need away from your skin.
Made from herbal extracts, Sheroxi Intensive Recovery Lotion does just that. It’s a phenomenal moisturiser for sensitive skin with nutrients your cells will readily absorb. The solution penetrates deeply without any sticky residue, even in the humid weather of Singapore.
3. Combination Skin
One of the most common skin types, most people have both oily zones and dry patches on their face. Usually identifiable with an oily T-zone but dry in the cheek area.
Recommended skincare: Look for well-balanced, all-rounded skincare products that are moisturising but not too heavy at the same time.
You would do best with nourishing creams, lotions, and serums that hold natural ingredients, like the Sheroxi Supreme Effects Cream. It’s ultra-moisturising and is potent with anti-aging and whitening properties to give you everything your skin needs.
4. Normal Skin
If your natural skin doesn’t feel too oily or dry and rarely gets blemishes, then you are one of a lucky few.
Recommended skincare: Keep up your regular skincare routine to keep your skin in good condition. Don’t use overbearing corrective products, e.g. oil control creams, deep exfoliation every day, or heavy moisturizers, as they can be too harsh for your skin. Then keep your skin fresh and bouncy for the next day with a Sheroxi Cleansing & Refreshing Mask.
