Understanding your skin type doesn't have to be a pain in the butt.Rather, it should be a guide for the right, personalized skincare routine. Which is why I created this short quiz to help you learn your skin type in minutes!
All the signs says your skin is more normalized. You have a well-balanced skin that is moisture content and healthy.
Acne, dehydration, aging, and hyper-sensitivity aren't concerns on your radar, although they could pop up depending on environmental, hormonal and other factors.
Your skin type is probably one of the least common, so consider yourself lucky (YAY)! (You might want to give your parents some hug at this point for passing down some pretty enviable genes).

All the signs show that you have dry skin type; this means your skin is lacking natural moisturizing factors and it allows moisture to escape easily. Your skin feels tight, sometimes flaky, and can get irritated easily.
Be sure to incorporate rich hydrating, moisturizing products into your skincare routine. That way, your moisture barrier is normalized and your skin isn't easily damaged by external factors.

All the signs show that you've got oily skin. Your skin has an overactive sebaceous (oil) gland and produces high sebum (the skin's moisturizing protective barrier) content. This makes it prone to issues such as enlarged/congested pores, blackheads, acne. You probably have a zit or two while reading this.
The goal is to control/lessen oil production and prevent your skin from breakouts. Light hydration of the skin cells and ingredients like salicylic acid will help keep your skin in check.

The concept of your skin type is that it is oily in some parts (forehead, nose, chin) and dry/normal in the others. You can consider your skin type the new 'normal' as it is the most common skin type (myself included). This is because most people have more oil glands and sebum (skin's moisturizing protective barrier) content in the center of the face.
Your skin might be on the oilier side of the combination, dehydrated side, or even acne-prone. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to find products for dry and oily skin, rather find one that is in the middle of the road. The skincare regime for combination skin contains ingredients that target a wide range of skin concerns.
