Skincare 101- Skin Types

So, I want this to be my first post because before even talking about makeup, you need to make sure you have good skin! I strongly believe that everybody can have good skin if they know how to take care of it. For some of us, good skin= good genes but for other good skin= dream that can never become true…

I will break it down for you and recommend the best skincare on the market for each skin type.


Here are the different skin types: * courtesy of http://beauty.about.com

  • Type 1: Oily Oily skin tends to shiny with enlarged pores, and is prone to blackheads and blemishes. You might experience some tightness.
  • Type 2: Combination/normal 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.
  • Type 3: Sensitive 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.
  • Type 4: Dry 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.
  • Type 5: Aging or sun-damaged This skin also feels tight with visible wrinkles, slack skin tone — especially around the cheeks and jawline — with leathery texture and broken capillaries.
