Usually, whenever we go to buy any skin product we are enquired about our skin type but we often give them wrong information about our type because of our little knowledge and end up in buying those products which won’t suit us. So let me tell you how you can recognize your skin type.
- Dry skin: If you have dry skin, even after cleansing your skin it will become dehydrated within 5-10 minutes. The top layer of dry skin lacks moisture. People with dry skin are likely to have smaller skin pores as compared to people with combination and oily skin.
- Oily skin: You can clearly get to know if your skin is oily because it looks too shiny. Large pores and pimples are basic symptoms of oily skin. If you have oily skin you are more prone to carrying a handkerchief or facial wipes with you all the time.
Managing both the types of skin requires a lot of care and concern, so here is your savior. This article is all about the basic changes you can make in your daily regime to suit your skin.
1) Oily skin:
a) Washing is the best way to prevent oiliness from the face. Use a gentle cleanser at least twice a day, prefer glycerin cleanser instead of an acidic or a basic cleanser.
b) Use oil-free moisturizer to keep your skin moist. It is a taboo that moisturizer should not be applied on oily skin but even if your skin is oily you can use moisturizer.
c) Carry facial wipes or blotting paper whenever you go out. It’s better to clean oil as soon as possible instead of letting it stay on your skin.
2) Dry skin:
a) Don’t use hot water to shower because hot water wipes out dead cells from the body.
b) Cover your face and exposed parts with a cloth whenever you go out in sun. Exposure to sun burns your skin and the cells die.
c) Shaving is not just clearing hair from your skin but it also scraps off oil from the skin so be careful while you shave. Using inappropriate shaving cream and blade causes irritation.
d) Apply moisturizer on your skin after you take bath. You can also apply moisturizer at night before you go to bed. If you apply moisturizer at night, it stays for a longer time on your skin.
e) Wear gloves while washing utensils and clothes. Don’t use those detergents and soaps which causes irritation.
