Skincare Session #1 - skin type

First things first. When it comes to any skincare regime you need to know your skin type. The following may help you distinguish skin type if your not sure. 
Normal skin - not oily or dry. Probably soft to touch with smallish pores. May have occasional breakout.
Dry skin - tight feeling, dehydrated skin. May look flaky especially in cold weather. 
Oily skin - large pores, usually blemish prone, find your skin tends to be shiny or get shiny throughout the day
Combination skin - usually oily t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) and normal/dry cheeks.

Once you know your skin type, finding products to use will become a lot easier. You will know if you need to get specific products. For example, if you have dry skin, products that boost moisture will be what you need, if you have oily skin, you will need oil absorbing or mattifying products.

The main steps you need for skincare are; cleans, exfoliate and moisturise. More on those individual steps in the following sessions.

Have a good skin day everyday!
