Finding the perfect skincare routine can be a daunting task, especially when you're bombarded with countless product options. It's essential to begin by understanding your skin type because this knowledge will guide you in selecting the most suitable products for your skin.
Determining Your Skin Type
Skin can be broadly categorized into five main types: normal, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive. Here's how to determine where your skin falls on this spectrum:
Well balanced, with minimal issues.
Appears neither too oily nor too dry.
Pores are generally small and not easily clogged.
You experience few blemishes or skin sensitivities.
Tends to be shiny, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin).
Large pores are common, and they can become clogged more easily.
You may experience frequent breakouts and blackheads.
Often feels tight and flaky.
Pores are small, and the skin may appear dull.
You may experience redness, sensitivity, and itching.
Mix of two or more skin types.
Typically, the T-zone is oily, while the cheeks may be dry or normal.
You may need to address different skin concerns in different areas of your face.
Prone to irritation, redness, and reactions.
It may feel tight, dry, or itchy.
You should use gentle, fragrance-free products to avoid exacerbating sensitivity.
Now that you've identified your skin type, let's explore how to tailor your skincare routine with LILY + MIEL's products.
