    Default How to determine your Skin Type?


    Question, do I have dry skin or oily skin?

    Upon exiting the a warm/hot shower without apply anything to my face, I'll notice my face is somewhat dry there after. However, throughout the day when I touch my face (nose, forehead) I'll notice it is somewhat glistened with oil. I may have already answered my question...

    Should I use a cleanser with salicylic acid, and a moiturizer with salicylic acid or is that overkill? How about a scrub with that as well :P

    I'm male, 26 years old, Chinese decent.

    My skin is oily. It protects me from dryness. But I have to use best quality of face wash for wash outing the oil from my skin.

    General tips copied from Yahoo Answer Forum:

    Dry skin is usually dry to the touch, sometimes flakey, tight, may be itchy and rough. Sometimes redness is a key sign.

    Oily skin is the opposite. Its moist to the touch. If you have oily skin you are probably prone to pimples and black heads. Also, you will appear to have a ''shine'' and feel 'slick' or 'greasy'.

    Normal skin is a combination of the two. Its not too dry and not too greasy, with little to no break outs.

    My skin is so dry when I touch my skin I feel rough. It is the best way to determine my skin type.

    Everyone's skin is normal to them, but in order to care for diverse skin types, we often group people into some skin categories. Ascertaining your skin type is an important first step in knowing how to treat your skin, what products to use, and how to Have Perfect Skin.

    Determine your skin after face wash with soap.
