If you ask 100 people to give you their perfect skincare routine, you’ll get 100 different answers. Suggestions will vary across the board from specific product recommendations all the way to DIY methods learned from someone’s friend’s cousin’s next-door-neighbor. Is it any wonder why you’re so confused about your own skin care routine?

The perfect skincare routine doesn’t have to be that complicated though. Combining knowledge about your skin type with common sense and the answers start to become clearer.  So, we put together a practical, start-to-finish guide on how to create the perfect skincare routine for yourself no matter what type of skin you have.

Determining Your Skin Type

Your Guide To The Perfect Skincare Routine While it’s not a stretch to think that dry skin would obviously require some type of moisturizer, many people falsely believe that oily skin does not require moisturizing.

But how do determine whether you have dry or oily skin? It’s not always as obvious as just looking in the mirror. Fortunately, there is an easy and fairly reliable method to determine your skin type:

1. Start by washing your face gently, removing all makeup. Pat your skin dry with a clean, soft towel.

2. Go about your normal activities for about an hour, taking care not to touch your face.

3. Dab your forehead, nose and cheeks in turn with a clean tissue.

The tissue paper appearing dampened or greasy is a strong indication of oily skin. Many people have combination skin, both dry and oily skin.  Combination skin is defined by oily skin through the “T-zone”, including the forehead, nose and chin line that’s ‘combined’ with dry or normal skin on or around the cheekbone areas.

Products Designed For Your Skin Type

There is a wide range of skincare products created for all skin types and skin type variations.  Additional considerations when choosing skin care products should also include whether or not your skin is sensitive and/or acne-prone to start with:

  • If you have acne-prone skin, stick with gentle, naturally derived anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory products.
  • If you have sensitive skin that becomes easily enflamed, avoid products with fragrance, alcohol or abrasive elements that can easily irritate the skin.
