The One Thing You Need To Know About Your Skin
Knowing your skin type is essential for healthy, clear skin. It's the one thing you need to know before starting a skincare routine and might just be the reason you're not putting your best face forward. But how do you know? You're about to find out!
Now, no one person has the same skin type, and like body shapes, we won't always fit into the four we are given as a guide. So if you are confused about what category your complexion sits in, or struggling to fit into just one (and combination just doesn't sound quite right), step into a salon and have a consultation with a beauty therapist or see a dermatologist. That way you will know exactly what you need.
In any case, we're certain in saying that clear, hydrated and healthy skin is what we all want, so we chatted to Greg Goodman, associate professor from The Dermatology Institute of Victoria, about just how important knowing your skin type is. Plus, we've found some purse-friendly solutions so everyone can use the right skincare, no matter what your budget. "It really is essential to know your skin type if you are going to use skincare to 'normalise' your skin," says Goodman. "Using the wrong products on your skin can worsen the issues. Ie. Using drying, active products on sensitive skin."
So scroll down for our guide, with the help of Goodman of course!
