There are five basic skin care types: Oily, combination, sensitive, dry and sun-damaged. Your skin type is determined by how much — or how little — oil your skin produces. Genes, diet, stress level, medication and even your skincare regimen all determine how much oil your skin produces.

 

If you have ❤ OILY SKIN <3…

Oily skin tends to shiny with enlarged pores, and is prone to blackheads and blemishes. You might experience some tightness.I recommend bareMinerals, Almay Clear Complexion, Almay TLC, Cover Girl Aqua Smooth, Revlon ColorStay (Oily Skin Formula).

If you have ❤ DRY SKIN <3…

Dry skin feels tight, especially after cleansing. You have a tendency towards fine wrinkles, flaking and red patches. In women of color, skin may appear ashy or dull from dead skin buildup.I recommend a water-based foundation. Some good ones are Almay Line Smoothing, & Cover Girl Aqua Smooth. If you use an intense moisturizer, you should be able to wear any kind of foundation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you have ❤ COMBINATION SKIN <3…

This skin type has medium pores, a smooth and even texture, good circulation, healthy color, may tend toward dryness on the cheeks while being oily in the t-zone.I recommend for you to use a water-based foundation as well. With that being said, you can use any foundation under the Dry Skin or Oily Skin category. Before applying makeup, use Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer for Combination Skin.

If you have ❤ AGE AND SUN DAMAGED SKIN <3This skin also feels tight with visible wrinkles, slack skin tone — especially around the cheeks and jawline — with leathery texture and broken capillaries.iF you have this skin type then , you must seek professional help by seeing your local esthetician.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you have ❤ SENSITIVE SKIN <3…

Sensitive skin tends to be thin, delicate with fine pores. It flushes easily, is prone to broken capillaries, is frequently allergic and can be rashy.I highly recommend for you to use a tinted moisturizer. If that is not enough coverage for you, then use a brand free of harsh ingredients, like bareMinerals, Afterglow Cosmetics, Physicians Formula, etc.
