Who doesn’t love radiant and blemish-free skin? Well, I do! Of course, it wasn’t an easy task getting there. However, the trials and errors were worth it. But do you know where most of us go wrong? We blindly buy the products thinking they will work their magic without even knowing our skin type. And, that’s the very first mistake I made.
So, come on, let’s find out how to determine your skin type. Keep reading.
The Bare-Face Method
The bare-faced method is easy-peasy. You need to wash your face and let it sit for 30 minutes without applying any product.
Now, after the given time, examine your face. If your cheeks, chin, nose, and forehead are shiny, then you have oily skin. If only your forehead and nose are shiny, then it is normal to combination skin, and finally, if your skin feels too dehydrated, then you have dry skin. This is an easy method to help you figure out your skin type.
Homemade Beauty Tips For Glowing Skin (All Skin Types)
- Instead of spending a hefty amount of chemical-based toners, you can DIY one at home. For instance, there is ACV or apple vinegar toner, green tea toner, and more. They are incredibly cheap but will do wonders for your skin.
- Honey is the best. Make a mask using honey and the available ingredients in your kitchen, such as chickpea or rice flour. Let it sit for 15 minutes and wash it off for a natural glow. If you are in a hurry, you can simply switch honey with your cleaner. It truly works.
