Determining your skin type is essential for creating a skincare routine tailored to your specific needs. There are several factors to consider when determining your skin type, including the amount of oil your skin produces (sebum), the size of your pores, and how your skin reacts to different environmental factors.
If your skin tends to feel tight and dry, with small pores and a tendency to develop fine lines and wrinkles, you likely have dry skin.
On the other hand, if your skin is prone to oiliness, with larger pores and a tendency for breakouts and shine throughout the day, you may have oily skin.
Another skin type to consider is combination skin, which means that different areas of your face may have different characteristics.
