Great Skin for Spring: What Skin Type Are You??

Who doesn't want perfect skin, say, like....Halle Berry!? The problem is, a lot of women struggle in determining what type of skin they have. It's an important thing to know because it's the first step in deciding upon a proper skincare regimen. Also, what type of foundation you use depends on your personal skin type. Here are some tips to figuring it out for yourself!!

Oily Skin: If you have oily skin, you probably notice alot of shine as well as larger pores. Oily skin is often prone to breakouts.

Normal Skin: Skin that is mostly even in tone, with few blemishes and requiring only light moisture.

Dry Skin: Skin that is blotchy and/or flaky. Skin feels tight after washing and tends to absorb moisture quickly.

Combination Skin: Probably the most common skin type! If you have combination skin you probably have an oily t-zone (nose, forehead, and chin) with normal to dry cheeks/jawline, etc.

Sensitive Skin: Easily irritated skin. Can be very hard to find skin care products. Skin tone is often blotchy or uneven. Skin can also be dry and require alot of moisture.
