Is your skin oily, dry, combination, sensitive or normal? Knowing the answer to this important question can help you pick the right products and cleansing routines, and take better care of your skin.
Normal skin is neither too dry nor too oily. It isn’t too sensitive, and has barely any blemishes. If this is your skin type, lucky you! You probably don’t have a lot of skin concerns.

Combination skin is usually dry or normal in some areas but oily in the T-zone, a fancy name for the forehead, nose and chin area on your face. If this is your skin type, you might be struggling with enlarged pores, blackheads, and some grease and shine along your T-zone.

Dry skin does not produce as much natural moisture and tends to lose it faster. It feels tight and can become rough, itchy and flaky. If this is your skin type, use a gentle cleanser and avoid over-washing your face. Apply and re-apply an oil-free moisturizer throughout the day as needed

Oily skin usually gets shiny or greasy pretty quickly. This is because this skin type produces extra oil, which can eventually clog pores, attract bacteria, and cause acne. If this is your type, fight the urge to pop or prick your pimples and only use products that are oil-free and non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog pores.
We recommend: CLEAN & CLEAR MORNING BURST® Shine Control Facial Cleanser, CLEAN & CLEAR ESSENTIALS® Deep Cleaning Astringent, CLEAN & CLEAR® MORNING BURST® Hydrating Gel Moisturizer, and CLEAN & CLEAR® Oil Absorbing Sheets
Sensitive skin is easily irritated, becoming itchy, red, painful and dry. If this is your skin type, find out which factors trigger a reaction and avoid them. Stay away from harsh cleansers and skin care products too.
