Knowing your skin type is an important first step in building a skincare routine. Different skin types need to be cared for in different ways and with different types of products. However, most people’s skin can be classified into four broad categories:
- Oily Skin: This one is pretty self-explanatory. If you have excess oil all over your skin, chances are you will come out of the skin type quiz with an oily designation.
- Combination: This is a combination of dry and oily skin. So, if your T-zone; the area between your forehead, nose, and chin, are oily and your cheeks are dry, your quiz result may say your skin is combination skin.
- Dry: If your skin is flaky, rough, and drinks up the moisturizer, you might take the skin type quiz and find you have dry skin.
- Sensitive: This is easily irritated skin—especially when you interact with new products or environments—is an indicator of sensitive skin.
Take the quiz below to find out your skin type.
