Not to be confused for overall dewy skin, oily skin tends to show up on just certain areas of the face where sebum production is more active.
For most people, it’s their nose or their T-zone. But for some, it appears on their cheeks as well.
Another determining factor is that, whenever you wash your face, the your skin doesn’t feel dry and you can sometimes go without a moisturiser because you think you don’t need it.
The truth is, oily skin sometimes makes up for the lack of surface moisture by producing more oil so don’t skip that moisturiser — ever!
Instead, opt to deep cleanse your skin to get rid of excess sebum at night and use an oil-free moisturise as per usual.
This one’s pretty easy to determine!
Sensitive skin tends to sting a little when new products with active ingredients are applied. Plus, if you’ve been spending a lot of time out in the sun, sensitive skin can turn redder and tender a lot faster than other parts of your face.
For most people, sensitive skin tends to happen on their cheeks or jaw line. These places are more susceptible to reddening and sun burn too.
Make sure to protect these parts of your skin by moisturising often and reapplying sunblock throughout the day.
Do you feel like you need moisturiser all the time? Does even the gentlest of skin cleansers make your skin feel dry?
Then you’ve got dry skin! To avoid feeling that tight sensation on your face, be sure to keep a face mist handy and remember to tap all that goodness into your skin with clean hands. It’ll help get rid of the tightness momentarily.
At night, consider sleeping with a sleeping mask on. It’ll help to moisten skin overnight for youthful looking skin the next day.
Another relatively easy one to spot, combination is literally just that, some parts of your face feel oilier and some are bone dry.
For this, we recommend spot treatment. There’s nothing wrong with cleansing your nose or your t zone with a stronger cleanser.
