Do you know what your skin type is?

The first step to creating the best  skincare routine starts by working out your skin type and main skin concerns. 

Your skin type is on the spectrum between a very oily to a very dry, with combination and normal skin sitting in between. Let's figure out your skin type.

Follow these three easy steps to determine your skin type

  • Cleanse your face before bed.
  • Leave your skin bare without moisturising or adding any other product to it.
  • In the morning analyse your T Zone and C Zones. Your T Zone is the skin on your forehead, nose and chin. Your C Zone is the skin on your cheeks and surrounding your T Zone. Are they oily and shiny or dry and flaky? Is your skin red or normal? Does your skin feel tight or comfortable?
