What's You Skin Type?

To determine your skin type use this simple test. 
With a clean facial tissue (or paper) to wipe your face in the morning, when you have just woken up:

Knowing your skin type is absolutely necessary to achieving a Joyous Face. Generally, we can single out five basic skin types normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive, with each having particular characteristics and requiring specific skin care. 
 Normal Skin …
If your skin is normal type, the tissue will not reveal any traces of oil. Your skin should feel vibrant, elastic, and supple. Normal skin is the least problematic type. It looks clean and smooth and has a good circulation and healthy complexion.

Even with a minimum care, it will look good well into your advanced age with the use of a good skin care products.
Dry Skin …
If your skin is dry, the paper will be clean too, but your face skin will feel flaky, dry, and tight after you have wiped it. Dry skin can easily develop a sallow tone, wrinkles, and fine pores, and it is very prone to aging and irritating.

It might still look great on a young person, but, to keep it healthy, you should apply thorough care and use regular skin treatment with natural masks and moisturizers.

Oily Skin …
If you have oily skin, the paper will have spots of facial oil on it, corresponding to the areas of your cheeks, nose, and forehead Oily skin is problematic – it usually looks greasy, thick, coarse, and shiny, has enlarged pores, and tends to break out with acne. Careful cleaning, minimizing of carbohydrate consumption, and avoiding rich creams can be helpful in improving the quality of oily skin. Combination Skin …
If you skin is combination, like that of most women, the tissue will have traces of oil coming from your nose and forehead, but will be clean in the areas that touched your cheeks. Combination skin has patches of both dry and oily skin, and it requires different types of care in relation to particular facial areas.

Dry zones, which are usually located on the cheeks and around the eyes, should be treated with rich creams and moisturizers. Oily areas, usually on the forehead and nose, will benefit from frequent and thorough cleaning.
Sensitive Skin …

Sensitive skin is usually very dry, tends to feel tight, and becomes inflamed and irritated easily. Typically, sensitive skin develops reddish and scaly areas, can be itchy and tingly, and is prone to breaking into spots. It is the most problematic and fragile type of skin, which needs a very special type of care.
