The first step in taking proper care of your skin, is knowing your skin type. There are four skin types: normal, oily, dry and combination, with each having different water and lipid levels. Normal skin has a balanced moisture and lipid content, while oily skin tends to produce too many lipids, and dry skin doesn’t produce enough. Combination skin has normal, oily and dry areas. Moreover, your skin's condition can be influenced by internal and external factors. It’s therefore important to find the right routine, tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Don’t underestimate the importance of carefully evaluating your own skin type to find the right product; choosing a product that doesn’t match your needs might end up worsening the situation rather than helping.
