Not sure what skin type you have?


Oily skin can be quite shiny, often with larger pores and prone to blackheads. If you were to wash your face and pat dry, wait a few minutes and then blot your face with a tissue, the tissue would become translucent.


Combination skin is the most common type of skin and usually consists of an oilier 'T-section' (across your forehead and down your nose and chin). You may find that although parts of your face are slightly/quite oily, other parts (for example around your eyes and cheeks) can be quite dry or even flaky.


Skin that is neither too oily or too dry fits into the 'Normal' category. Normal skin types have a smooth and even complexion, usually with medium or smaller pores and don't often break out. Sometimes normal skin can get a slightly drier towards the cheeks and edges of the face.


Dry skin can often lead to itching, flaking and a feeling of 'tightness'. You may find that your skin is worse in winter due to the low humidity levels. Dry skin needs extra moisture that penetrates the skin. Chemical based products are particularly bad for dry skin as many of the ingredients actually dry your skin out further.


Fine lines, wrinkles and a slack skin texture are experienced as we age. Broken capillaries, age spots and a dull complexion can also be common, particularly around the jawline and cheeks. 

Sensitive / Problematic

Sensitive and problematic skin can flare up easily and be susceptible to conditions like acne, rosacea, psoriasis and eczema.
