5 Skincare Products You Should Consider Using

Before building your skincare routine, start first by knowing your skin type. This will guide you in choosing the right products to use. There are five common skin types:

  • Dry skin – low level of sebum; often flaky and feels tight after being wiped
  • Oily skin – enlarged pores; overactive sebaceous glands producing more oil than necessary
  • Combination skin – can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone
  • Normal skin – not too dry and not too oily; no or few imperfections; barely visible pores
  • Sensitive skin – can be imflamed and irritated easily; can be caused by skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea or allergies

There are products that each skin type and each age need. Start by only using the essentials and later on add more products that will suit your specific skin needs.
