3 Ways to Help Diagnose Skin Type

Before considering any type of skin treatment, it’s important to know the type on the body. It takes time to get things in order in regard to face care. Some people may have a bit of an oily texture while others could be on the dry side. It’s important to see what the differences are to help make a sound decision to the type of care that’s needed.  Here are a few tips to help make this diagnosis.

Find Out How It Feels

Everyone is different when it comes to how the face feels. For example, if it feels a bit tight, then chances are it’s very dry. This could especially be the case when it gets colder later in the day. That’s why it’s important to find something that’s a bit stronger in oil content to help keep the face looking glossy. For some people, it’s the exact opposite. Their face may have a greasy and shiny texture. That doesn’t mean to avoid putting anything on the face. However, there are solutions for the face that will be lighter in nature, so that the face doesn’t absorb excess oil. The people that typically have a normal face can use products, but very light and non-abrasive to the face.

Take a Look at the Pores

A few open pores here and there aren’t too much cause for concern. It’s all about the size and where they’re located. If it’s on the nose or around the cheek area, that could be a big sign that the face is very oily. Also, take a look to see if the pores are large and look more like small holes. That means they are typically clogged up with oil. For those that have tiny holes, that means it’s a bit tight and dry. Certain people could have a combination of both and that shares a bit different symptoms. Speak with a good specialist to help get a product that works well. The key is to find something to help keep the pores from being noticeable.

Keep Everything Well Moisturized

It’s important to know about the right moisturizer. There’s no need to overdo if the skin is already naturally oily. A little bit goes a long way, especially in the summer sun. However, if it’s a bit dry, then it’s okay to be generous with the amount of moisturize applied. Other people may have to spot check on the face. One area could be completely dry while the other side could be oily. In that case, use it lightly on one side and heavier on the other. It’s all about finding the right balance to make an even tone on the face.

These are a few tactics to help find the right treatment for the face.
