HOW TO Decode Your Skin Type

Before you can find the right skincare regimen for you, you need to understand what skin type you have. Just like your horoscope: normal, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive. If you’re unsure about what skin type you have, take a look at the characteristics of each below

Normal Skin


What does "normal" really mean? The easiest way to break it down is to think of this skin type as well-balanced. Guys and gals with normal skin types generally have infrequent blemishes (if any), have small, barely visible pores, and smooth, even skin texture. Basically a unicorn...lucky!

Oily Skin

Now on to my own skin (thank you DNA).  The oily skin experience, especially in the teen years, can be your shiniest and very often result in acne breakouts. Excessive oil can result in larger pores, and you may find that your makeup “slides” off during the day without reapplication. #washiewellness tip: Even oily skin needs hydration- don't skin out on moisturizing- just pick one that will work with your skin and not strip your natural oils or clog pores.

Dry Skin

This skin type can also be accompanied by redness and flaky spots. Those with dry skin have small, invisible pores. Dry skin can lead to irritation and you may observe dry patches across your face.

Combination Skin

Keeping up with combination skin can be a balancing act as this skin type exhibits the presence of two or more of the 5 skin types. The skin is often oily in the T-zone, while other portions of the face may be dry or more sensitive.

Sensitive Skin

Those with sensitive skin may experience any of the above skin types but with added sensitivity. They may be more vulnerable to products with irritating chemicals and fragrances.  Pick products that are recommended for: Sensitive, Acne-ProneYoung Adult skin.
