Knowing Your Skin Type

One of the biggest mistakes a woman can do to her skin is using the wrong product. Using the right product can help improve and maintain skin condition. The key of finding the right product is to know your skin type. All you need is a clean face and an hour to spare.

 

  1. Splash face 10 times with lukewarm water, pat skin with towel and let face air-dry for 30 minutes without putting on moisturizer or makeup.
  2. Stand in front of a mirror and move your face by squinting, frowning and smiling. If your face feels tight/itchy or appears flaky/ashy, you have dry skin. If you also breakout frequently, you have sensitive skin. If neither, wait another 30 minutes.
  3. Press one ply of tissue over your whole face and examine the residue. If there are oily patches from your T-Zone (forehead, nose, chin) and cheeks, you have oily skin. If it’s oily only on the T-Zone, you have combination skin.

Salah satu kesalahan terbesar seorang wanita terhadap kulitnya ialah menggunakan produk salah. Penggunaan produk yang betul dapat menolong dan menjaga keadaan kulit. Kunci dalam pencarian produk yang betul ialah mengetahui jenis kulit anda. Apa yang anda perlu ialah muka yang bersih dan satu jam untuk di guna.

  1. Percik muka anda dengan air suam sebanyak 10 kali, keringkan dengan tuala dan biarkan ia kering dengan angin selama 30 minit tanpa mengenakan pelembab atau mekap.
  2. Berdiri di depan cermin dan gerakkan muka anda dengan mengecilkan mata, mengerutkan dahi dan senyum. Jika muka anda terasa ketat/gatal atau kelihatan berkuping/kekelabuan, anda menpunyai kulit kering. Jika anda juga selalu berjerawat, kulit anda sensitif. Jika tidak kedua-duanya, tunggu 30 minit lagi.
  3. Tekapkan sekeping tisu di seluruh muka anda dan kaji kesannya. Jika terdapat kesan minyak di bahagian T-Zone (dahi, hidung, dagu) dan pipi, anda mempunyai kulit berminyak. Jika minyak cuma di kawasan T-Zone, anda mempunyai kulit kombinasi.
