How to find my skin type?
There is an easy way to find your skin type.
1) Wash your face and pat it dry;
2) Take a few pieces of rice paper or lens-cleaning tissue paper and press on different spots on your face;
3) If your skin is oily, the paper will stick, pick up oily spots and become translucent;
4) If the paper doesn't stick or pick up any oily spots, your skin is dry;
5) If it sticks in your t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) then you have combination or normal skin.

Skin Type: Oily/Normal to Oily

- Avoid harsh skincare products that leave your skin feeling tight and dehydrated. It leads to blockages and breakouts;
