Know your skin/ Guide to diagnose your skin type

We all are always worried about our skin; what moisturizer should I use? What should be my skin care routine? Which face wash should I use? And the list goes on. Basically, our skin is the most important part of our body because it decides our whole appearance. People have different skin types because of their genetics, hormones, and age. External factors like weather, environment, and products can cause changes in our skin type.

So why don’t we try to know our skin and its type? A short guide about different skin types would definitely solve most of your skin problems because knowing your skin type is IMPORTANT.

1) Normal Skin:

If your skin is showing no signs of imperfections – it can have few imperfections but not some major and noticeable ones. You don’t suffer from any type of severe sensitivity – now being sensitive to certain things can cause some reaction to your skin but that’s an occasional occurrence. Your pores are barely visible to you or anyone else, except when you look extremely closely. Lastly, and most importantly, if your complexion is radiant and fresh then you can classify your skin as normal.

Product Recommendation:  Scalisi Skincare Anti Aging Moisturizer with SPF 30

2) Dry Skin:

You can classify your skin as dry if your pores are invisible, or almost invisible, you have red patches on your skin, or they appear frequently, there are lines visible on your skin and your complexing is dulling or has become rough. Moreover, if your skin has less elasticity which can be caused by aging or changes in hormones, then your skin is dry.

Dry skin is also a result of changes in weather (windy, sunny or cold), spending long hours in places with indoor heating, long hot baths and showers, and also ingredients in skin products you use.

Product Recommendation Mildly Dry: Scalisi Skincare Advanced Wrinkle Cream 

Product Recommendation Very Dry: Bob's Cream

3) Oily Skin:

The basic symptom of an oily skin is shiny skin, especially the T-zone area (forehead, nose and chin). An oily skin type is usually defined by large and visible pores, shiny complexion, visible blackheads and pores.

Product Recommendation: Scalisi Skincare Silk Elixir Serum

4) Combination Skin:

Combination skin is a mixture of normal and dry skin which means that parts of your skin can be dry, oily or normal. If your skin is oily, most likely in your T-zone area, and you have a lot of blackheads both visible and invisible, your skin is shiny and greasy and you have overly dilated pores, then you have a combination skin type.
