If you answered mostly A’s, you have a normal skin.

Normal skin means that, the majority of the time, your skin is not too dry or too oily. This is considered the ideal skin type and the best way to care for your skin is to follow a basic daily skin regimen. This includes using a gentle cleanser, a toner, and SPF infused moisturiser with skin-restoring ingredients inside.

If you answered mostly B’s, you have a sensitive skin.

Sensitive skin means that your skin becomes dry, irritated or red more frequently than not. When it comes to sensitive skin, it is important to be gentle and not over-exfoliate your skin. Be sure to test products before purchasing them, as not all products may be suitable for your skin type. To help combat redness, try washing your skin with lukewarm water instead of hot water.

If you answered mostly C’s, you have a combination skin.

Combination skin means some areas of your face are oily while other areas are dry. Typically, there’s a mix of oily and dry areas on dif­ferent parts of your face, with the t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) being slightly to very oily. Try using products that promote skin-replenishing in order to help improve your skin. For cleansers, choose gentle formulas that are labeled for combination skin, and for your daytime moisturiser use a light formula on oily areas and rich moisturiser on dry areas.

If you answered mostly D’s, you have an oily skin.

An oily skin type is exactly what it sounds like – excess oil on the face produces a persistently shiny or greasy appearance. If you don’t treat your oily skin, pores can become clogged and enlarged, and dead skin cells may accumulate. Blackheads, pimples and other types of acne are also common with this skin type. Be sure to wash your skin twice a day with a gentle cleanser that is suitable for oily skin. Used in combination with Facial Cleansing Brush, this is a great way for unclogging pores of oil and helping to keep your face shine-free.

If you are still unsure, you can do two simple test during your free time at home, no effort just a short 30 minutes of your time!
