What is my skin type?

I get asked the question all the time, “What is my skin type?” Here is my answer, generally there are 5 types of skin, we have normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. I feel that sensitive skin types are also skin types that can have rosacea or flare ups. Many people have combination skin which is when you can have both dry skin in some areas and oily skin on other areas. A great example of combination skin would be when someone says “T Zone” which is when your forehead and nose are oily and the rest of your face tends to be dry. In order to create and optimal skin care routine it is beneficial to know your skin type. We typically see oily skin in teenagers but it is also not uncommon to see adults with the same oily skin. When I see sensitive skin I feel that skin such as this is going to be more prone to irritation and it demands products with no harsh ingredients. Skin that is oily will require products with acids such as beta hydroxy or alpha hydroxy acid. I would love to talk to you about your skin and get you on the perfect routine.  Start with the perfect cleanser for your skin type
