How to choose the right skincare products for your face

That finding a skin care fit isn’t simple thing as going a grocery store. With so many options on the market, it can be an overwhelming task choosing which skin care product to fit into your skin. No doubt that every woman had gone through the journey that takes a lot of time and money trying to find the best solution.

For the best results, take a minute to educate yourself before purchasing skin care products.

What skin type am I ?

It is fundamental thing. Knowing your skin type such as dry, oily, a combination and normal allows you to select the right products and customize a skin care routine that will work best for you. There are simple ways to determine your skin type at home.

  1. Before sleeping, use makeup remover to remove make-up from your face and wash your face with warm water. Then go to bed. Don’t apply any products including moisturizer.
  2. As long as you wake up in the morning, pat your face with tissue.

Look at the tissue to determine:

Oily skin – The tissue has excessive amounts of oil in most areas of your skin.

Combination skin – Some of the areas on your face especially T zone have excessive oil.

Normal skin – The tissue has, more or less, average amounts of oil in all areas.

Dry skin – The tissue has little, close to nothing, oil on it.


Once you know your skin type, start doing some research. Social media platforms can be a waste of time or a source of knowledge depending on how you use it. What are people on the facebook and Instagram saying about different skin care products? It will take more time and effort, but it’s worth it and it’s actually pretty fun. Just be weary and know that many sites and bloggers do get paid to say good things about certain brands and products. But I believe you can distinguish between a true and false.
