What’s Your Skin Type?

Do you know what your skin type is? There’s normal, dry, oily, and combination! If you’re not sure, or you think you might fall somewhere in-between types, don’t worry! Our quiz can help you determine what your skin type is and some tips on caring for your skin.

Everyone’s skin is different, and there are many factors that can play into your skin type. Did you know that your skin can be influenced by:

  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Medications
  • Season
  • Region
  • & More?

For example, someone who has oily skin may find that their skin is much more normal when living in a desert climate, just as someone with dry skin might flourish in humidity. Be sure to take these factors into consideration when creating a routine based on your skin type.

Building a Skincare Routine

Have no fear, not everyone needs one of those 11-step skincare routines we’ve all been hearing about! We always recommend speaking with an esthetician to get the best product recommendations for your face, but in general, here’s the order you’ll want to follow:

  • Cleanser
  • Toner
  • Serum
  • Spot Treatments
  • Moisturizer
  • SPF

Depending on your skin type, you may want to look for products with or without specific ingredients. For those with more oil-prone skin, you’ll want to look for cleansers that are “oil-free” or labeled as “noncomedogenic.” If you struggle with dryness, you might want to consider a heavier moisturizer to help you seal in as much moisture as possible during the day and night. At our student salon, we can help recommend products to you based on your skin type! Find out more about the services we offer and contact us to schedule your appointment.
