Skin types: Do you know yours?

Thursday, July 30, 2015


It's been a while I'd involving in beauty line, and I followed mom's footsteps since young. However, certain people might not really aware of how exactly their skin looks like and this may resulting them to pick the wrong skin care. 

I was once approached and they claimed my skin is pretty oily (yes, but not informing me that it's caused by skin dehydration), I was given tons of oil control products to use and turned out my skin breakouts and sensitive. This literally took me years to save my skin and I'm glad it's pretty fine now.

Found online, and I shared on my business website and social media portals. I was thinking that why not to post it here for a better reference since this is my beauty blog =) Certainly, feel free to drop me an email for a better communication and enquiries. I'll be happy enough to assist you.

Experiment:
How well do you know your skin? Here's a small test for you to try at home:
1. Wash your face and dry your skin.
2. Leave it for 2 to 3 hours during daytime or overnight
3. Gently dap on your skin with tissue paper
4. Find out if there's oil blots or dry flakes
5. Repeat step 3 & 4 on cheek, forehead, chin, and nose area.

**Kindly avoid outdoor activities or staying under air-conditioned room as the result may vary.

Results:
Oily: Visible oil blots around the face.
Combination: Visible oil blots on T-Zone area, normal / slightly dry on U-Zone area.
Normal: No visible oil blots
Dry: Slightly visible skin flakes and feel stressed while stretching face
Sensitive: Irritation and slightly burnt, visible redness.

Experiment above are just major skin concerns. Of course there are certain studies that clients may face skin changing process from one to another skin type due to external reasons. Please get in touch with me or other professional skin care consultant to know your skin better in order to provide the best advice and solutions to treat your skin.

想知道自己真正属于哪个类型的皮肤?在家做个小测试。
1. 先洗脸然后抹干(一般洗面乳即可)
2. 什么都不搽,让皮肤放空2至3小时;如果是晚间试验可以直接睡觉。
3. 试用纸巾轻轻贴上皮肤一次。
4. 看看纸巾是否有残留物如油迹或小死皮屑
5. 接着,在额头,脸颊,下巴,鼻子重复做同样的测验。
**测试期间请避免在阳光下曝晒或呆在冷气房,以不影响测试结果。

总结:
全油性皮肤:所有脸型部位皆有油迹
混合性皮肤:T字部位有油迹、U字部没有油迹(或轻微脱皮)
普通性皮肤:没有油迹、没有轻微拉提疼痛
干燥性皮肤:皮肤开始有轻微脱皮现象,脸部拉提时有轻微疼痛感
敏感性皮肤:脸部开始有轻微显红发热,时而拥有少痕痒的感觉

以上测试只提供于一般皮肤性质。当然,当中也有一些因特殊因素而导致皮肤性质转换,请大家不要过于担心。请咨询我们,让我们了解更多,才能对症下药哦~


That's the end of my 5 cents of advise. I hope everyone will understand your skin well. Make sure to identify the exact skin concern to achieve the best result. Everyone deserves a healthy skin! Cheers!
